Golf Betting on THE TOUR Championship

Golf betting for the 2009 season ends with THE TOUR Championship as the FedExCup will be decided.

The top 30 players in the standings will be available to bet on golf for THE TOUR Championship. Here is a look at THE TOUR Championship which begins on Thursday, September 24th.

Golf betting at the sports book should be more exciting than ever on this event since any player in the Top 5 in the standings that wins this tournament will win the FedExCup. Golf betting action can be seen on NBC with the top 30 players competing in this event. Last year the tournament meant nothing since Vijay Singh had already wrapped up the FedExCup. That will not be the case this season as the rules were changed and any player in the Top 5 that wins this event will win the title. Last year it was Camilo Villegas winning in golf betting as he beat Sergio Garcia in a playoff.

This year the favorite in golf betting at the sportsbook will be Tiger Woods who has been leading the FedExCup standings for most of the season. Steve Stricker has been right there as well and will be serious contender in golf betting. Other likely contenders in golf betting at the sportsbook are Phil Mickelson, Padraig Harrington, Zach Johnson and Geoff Ogilvy. Some longshots in golf betting at the sports book are Heath Slocum, Zach Johnson, Scott Verplank and Lucas Glover. Any of the 30 players could win THE TOUR Championship but bettors will probably zero in on only the Top 5 in the standings since one of them can win the title with a victory.

Two years ago it was Tiger winning this golf betting event while Adam Scott won in 2006. Bart Bryant beat Tiger in 2005 to win in golf betting while Retief Goosen beat Tiger in 2004. Chad Campbell won in 2003 while Vijay Singh won in 2002.

In addition to picking an overall winner in golf betting you also have the option of betting matchups in the TOUR Championship. The matchups should be better than ever since only the best 30 players in the world are in this bet on golf event.
