Golf Odds Preview: AT&T National

Golf odds season is just hitting its stride. With the US Open in the books for the 2009 golf betting odds season a string of high profile events awaits sports book fans in the weeks ahead.

One of these events that sure to have golf odds in high demand is the AT&T National to be held July 2nd to July 5th.

Golf odds fans would be hard pressed to find to a better way to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday than by having a BBQ and playing the golf betting odds for this exciting tournament. While the AT&T hasn’t been around all that long it seems destined to become of the most important golf odds events on the calendar and very popular among sports book fans.

The reason why this upstart tournament carries so much weight in the golf betting odds world has to do with its host. Tiger Woods is one of the few active golfers to ever host a major golf odds event while still on tour. The momentum for this golf odds event has a charitable foundation as the main beneficiary. After securing AT&T as the golf betting odds major event sponsor everything else sort of fell into place and the rest is golf odds history.

This year the golf odds action kicks off on Thursday July 2nd. And to coincide with the patriotic dates the event will be held in Washington, DC at the Congressional Golf Club. There simply is no more patriotic golf odds event on tour. The course is beautiful if not overly challenging golf course.

Designed by Devereux Emmet and opened in 1924 the club is a classic links style course which features some of the widest and rolling fairways in golf odds. However, the challenge of this course comes into play on the very wide but contoured greens. There are also plenty of water hazards in play making this a scenic but difficult golf odds opportunity. The tree-lined fairways and abundant landscaping make this one of the most scenic golf events as well.

Last year’s champ Anthony Kim will be back to defend his golf betting odds crown and will be among the list of favorites. The only other man to have won the event, KJ Choi will also be in the field and on the short list of contenders. Woods, playing the role of good host, has yet to win his own tournament, but has to be considered the favorite.

With a purse of $6 million the field should be loaded with all the top names in golf and if the weather cooperates we should see some very low scores.
