Golf betting this weekend shifts its attention to the Colonial Country Club in Ft. Worth, Texas for the Crowne Plaza Invitational. Golf betting fans will wager on the Crowne Plaza Invitational that is worth 500 FedExCup points and a total purse of $6.2 million, with a winning share of $1,116,000.
The golf betting field for the Crowne Plaza Invitational is one of the best so far in this young season as 8 out of the top 10 players in the FedExCup standings are scheduled to make the event.
Those players from the FedExCup golf betting top ten are, in order; 1-Zach Johnson, 2-Geoff Ogilvy, 4-Sean O’Hair, 5-Kenny Perry, 7-Rory Sabbatini, 8-Paul Casey, 9-Dustin Johnson, 10-Steve Stricker.
Six out of the top ten in the PGA Tour Money list will be in the golf betting field with Ogilvy, Johnson, O’Hair, Perry, Sabbatini, and Casey.
Four out of the top ten in the Official World Golf Rankings will make the golf betting field with Ogilvy, Perry, Casey, and Vijay Singh.
There are 17 major tournament winners in this golf betting event and 11 winners of tournaments in 2009. There are eight past winners of the Crowne Plaza including Sabbatini, who won this golf betting event in 2007, and Perry has won it twice in 2005 and 2003.
One notable absence for this golf betting event will be last year’s winner, Phil Mickelson, who is on indefinite leave from the PGA Tour after learning that his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Ogilvy has won two events this year with the Mercedez-Benz Championship along with the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.
Johnson has won the Sony Open in Hawaii and the Valero Texas Open.
Perry won the FBR Open but is best known for his heartbreaking loss at The Masters in which he had the tournament in the bag only to blow it on the final two holes and end up in a two round playoff, which he lost to Angel Cabrera.
The Colonial Country Club Course is a par 70 with a total course yardage of 7204.
