Golf betting in January includes the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic in California. Golf betting gamblers know this tournament as the one famous for celebrities as it has the pro-am.
Those gamblers looking to make a golf bet must be aware that celebrities will be playing along side the pros for most of this tournament.
Golf betting gamblers also should be aware that unlike a normal tournament that has four rounds, the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic has five rounds. Golf betting gamblers should know that the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic is the third event on the PGA Tour and is part of the FedEx cup competition. Golf betting experts know that the course rotation will consist of SilverRock Resort in La Quinta, the La Quinta Country Club, the Arnold Palmer Private Course and The Classic Club.
A number of the top players in the world will not be part of the golf betting odds. Gamblers looking to make a golf bet will see that Tiger Woods has never played in the tournament and a number of other top pros don’t like the format either. It is difficult for pros to play along with amateurs and play an extra round to boot. Gamblers that make a golf bet should know that rounds take much longer with amateur golfers and TV cameras that focus on the celebrities. Golf betting gamblers saw Charley Hoffman win the event last year. It was his first PGA Tour title. He defeated John Rollins on the first playoff hole to reward gamblers that were able to find him on the golf betting odds board or who bet the field. Last year one of the golf betting favorites was Phil Mickelson but he finished with a closing 78 and was well off the pace.
The Bob Hope Chrysler Classic provides good golf betting value with a number of players with attractive odds. Longshots winners are common in this event since a number of the top pros skip this event. Last year the final threesome for golf betting gamblers was Rollins, Justin Rose and Lucas Glover. None of these three were favored by many gamblers that made a golf bet.
The record for the tournament is held by Joe Durant who set the mark in 2001.
