Golf betting action turns its attention to Harbor Town Golf Links-Hilton Head Island, SC for the Verizon Heritage Tournament. Golf betting fans have seen Boo Weekley win the Verizon Heritage Tournament the past two seasons which, ironically enough, are his only 2 career wins.
A total of three of the top ten in the FedExCup rankings will be in the field for this golf betting event. They are fifth ranked Paul Casey, sixth ranked Zach Johnson, and tenth ranked Dustin Johnson. Camilo Villegas is another top shelf player that is ranked tenth in the Official Golf World rankings who has committed to playing in the Verizon Heritage Tournament.
2009 golf betting tournament winners in this event include Johnson, who won the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Michael Bradley, who won the Puerto Rico Open, Mark Wilson, who won the Mayakoba Golf Classic at Rivera Maya-Cancun, and Casey, who won the Shell Houston Open golf betting event two weeks ago.
The total purse for this weekend's golf betting action will be $5.7 million with a winning share of $1,026,000. A total of 500 FedExCup points will be at stake. The course is recognized as one of the favorites of PGA Tour professionals and as one of the best in all of golf betting. The course par value is 71 with a total yardage of 6973.
Casey and Weekely will be among the golf betting favorites for this event and would also make for an outstanding potential matchup.
The 17th hole is one of the more interesting in all of golf betting. There is water nearly everywhere and it takes pin point accuracy in order to negotiate the green, which is also protected by a 90 yard bunker. Add to that the normal crosswinds associated with this hole and you are likely to see a lot of dunking of golf balls this weekend.
The 18th features the course’s famed lighthouse, which is not only a cherished landmark but also a target to aim at. It is one of the most picturesque and spectacular holes in all of golf.
