Golf odds for THE PLAYERS Championship will be on the board in early May as the best golfers in the world compete for what has become known as golf’s fifth major.
THE PLAYERS Championship is not an official major but it does have the highest prize pool of any golf tournament and it has very exciting golf betting odds.
Golf odds will have Tiger Woods as the favorite in THE PLAYERS Championship which begins on Thursday, May 7th and concludes on Sunday, May 10th. The golf betting odds will have the top 50 golfers in the world rankings as part of the field. While THE PLAYERS Championship is not on par with the four majors (Masters, U.S. Open, PGA and British Open) it is not far behind. The winner of the event gets a 5-year exemption on the PGA Tour and an invitation to all of the majors including a three-year invite to the Masters and British Open.
Golf odds really get a lot of attention in THE PLAYERS Championship because of the most famous hole in all of golf. It is the Stadium Course’s 17th hole which has the island green. Golf odds are the most popular during the year on the Masters and U.S. Open but THE PLAYERS Championship is right with the British Open and PGA in popularity. The PGA has it set up nicely since the Masters is in April, THE PLAYERS Championship in May, the U.S. Open in June, the British Open in July and the PGA Championship in August.
