Golf Odds Preview: RBC Canadian Open

RBC Canadian Open is the biggest event in Canadian golf betting odds and the biggest tournament of the week on sportsbook sites.

They key golf events is also a good follow up the British Open which will be held the week before this golf odds event in 2009.

Golf odds fans know how important scheduling is for a PGA tournament and this year it seems as though the RBC Canadian Open will be hurt a little bit by trying to follow up a great golf betting odds like the British Open. The problem is that there is so much energy and excitement surrounding a Majors event (especially the British Open) that it can never be duplicated, not matter how great a golf odds tournament you host.

Be that as it may, those are the big shoes that the Canadian Open must step into and truth be told, it’s got a better chance than most golf odds event. In terms of history this event is as old as they come. First held in 1904, there is over a century of golf odds tradition at this event. It also boasts a $5 million purse and some of the top names in golf betting odds will be there.

Held at the Glen Abbey Golf Course in Oakville Ontario it is an idyllic backdrop for one of the most interesting golf odds events of the summer. Surprisingly a Canadian has not won this golf odds event in his native soil since 1954. That’s not necessarily a slight against Canadian competitors but rather an endorsement of the great talent that fills out the roster here every year.

No surprisingly the golf odds winners list here is full of superstar golfers and top golf betting odds competitors. Names like Vijay Singh, Tiger Woods, Scott Verplank and Jim Furyk are but a few of the top players who have claimed this title in recent years. Go back a few more years and see the names of golf legends like Arnie Palmer and Lee Trevino who have also claimed golf odds victory here.

Heading in to the tournament this year the people’s favorite has to be Canadian Mike Wier. He’s come close to claiming the title here in the past but fallen short. If you like to pull for the underdog (and a very good golfer in fine form) take Wier in the golf odds.
