Golf Betting – World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational

Golf betting will be exciting and intense on the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

The tournament begins on Thursday, August 6th and concludes on Sunday, August 9th.  Most of the top players in the world will be on the board at the online sportsbook for gamblers who bet on golf.

Golf betting odds are expected to favor Tiger Woods again this week. Woods has been the golf betting winner in this event a total of six times. He missed last year’s golf betting tourney due to knee surgery. Sports betting golf stats show that Woods has 15 career wins in World Golf Championship events.  Vijay Singh won last year's tournament in golf betting.

Golf betting for this event will see golfers who have qualified for the event like veterans Woods, Singh, Kenny Perry and Steve Stricker along with young stars like Rory McIlroy, Martin Kaymer, Camilo Villegas, Anthony Kim, Sean O'Hair, Lucas Glover, Nick Watney and Dustin Johnson. Also part of the golf betting field will be Danny Lee, the 18-year old who won the 2008 U.S. Amateur Championship.  He has made four of eight cuts on the PGA Tour as golf betting statistics show.

McIlroy could be an interesting golf betting choice this week.  He has been a factor in most tournaments this season for those that bet on golf although he has not won one on the PGA Tour. McIlroy won the 2009 Dubai Desert Classic on the European Tour for gamblers who bet on golf. Earlier this year, he finished in the Top 20 in the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship and World Golf Championships-CA Championship.

24-year-old Martin Kaymer could be another darkhorse pick in golf betting at the online sportsbook.  He won the Barclays Scottish Open earlier this year for gamblers that bet on golf. Watney and Dustin Johnson won in back-to-back weeks in golf betting at the Buick Invitational and the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Lucas Glover won the U.S. Open and has played excellent this year. "There are so many talented young players right now across the globe," said Executive Director Don Padgett. "Fans coming to the Bridgestone Invitational will get a good look at the future of golf worldwide when they see some of the game's best up-and-coming players here at Firestone Country Club."

Past golf betting winner of this event include Woods who won in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2005, 2006 and 2007. Craig Parry won in 2003 in golf betting, Darren Clarke in 2003, Stewart Cink in 2004 and Singh last year.
