Golf betting fans will get an extra special treat for this weekend's Quail Hollow Championship from Charlotte, North Carolina. Golf betting action on the Quail Hollow Championship will take place at the Quail Hollow Club April 30-May 3 with Tiger Woods heading the field!
Woods agreed last Friday to make the golf betting event and will be joined at the Quail Hollow Championship by his arch rival, Phil Mickelson, which headlines one of the strongest golf betting lineups in recent years for this event. 10 out of the top 14 ranked golfers in the world will be in Charlotte for this tournament.
Woods won the 2007 golf betting event at Quail Hollow but was unable to defend his title last year due to his knee surgery. Woods appearance means that all of the past golf betting champions of this event will make the field with the lone exception of Joey Sindelar, who moved on to the Champions Tour.
Along with Woods and Mickelson other golf betting notables will be Sergio Garcia, Padraig Harrington, Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk, 2009 Masters champion Angel Cabrera, and the defending champion of this event from Charlotte, Anthony Kim.
Mickelson ranked 2nd overall in the FedExCup standings and has made the cut in 6 out of 8 golf betting appearances this year. Mickelson has won two events in 2009 with the Northern Trust Open and the World Golf Championships-CA Championship. He finished 5th in the Masters and had an impressive late rally in doing so.
Woods ranked 13th on the FedExCup standings while playing a limited schedule this year. Woods has made the cut 4 out of 4 times in his golf betting appearances this year and posted 1 win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard. Woods finished in a 6th place tie for the Masters and was 9th at the World Golf Championships-CA Championship.
This event in Charlotte serves as preparation for the The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass at Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida on May 7-10. Both Woods and Mickelson will be there as well.
