Many of the top names in golf have returned to dominant form and new faces have also made their presence known to golf bet fans. In the weeks ahead one of the most overlooked but nonetheless exciting golf betting opportunity will be the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, something any golf fan should check out.
Golf betting in 2008 is off to a very intriguing start. World number one Tiger Woods is at the top of his game and has won both events he’s played in this year. But he’s not the only player at the top of the golf betting rankings to play well so far as Phil Mickelson has bounced back from injuries to win a golf bet event in the early going of the season as well.
And of course golf betting fans are familiar with the great of play of little known players like DJ Trahan JB Holmes, men that go by only initials but both of whom have picked up golf betting wins on the tough PGA Tour this year. KJ Choi has also picked up where he left off last year and if he can continue to finish strong will add to his win total of one so far this year.
The Zurich Classic will be a great golf bet venue for all of these latter mentioned golfers to excel. Contrary to its name, the event will actually be held in New Orleans and is not likely to be attended by golf betting royalty. Woods is all but certain not enter the golf betting event and many other top name golfers will also likely decline the invitation. This year will be 50th anniversary of the event and with people eager to help out in any way with the disaster relief in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina the golf betting event could be bigger than expected.
Vijay Singh was the last big name player to win this event and much golf bet experts think he could return this year. He’s shown good form early on holding a short lead at Pebble Beach before blowing it several weeks ago. However, most big golf betting names will sit this one out as it falls two weeks before golf betting’s biggest prize –the Masters- and practice up for the season’s first major.
