Bet on GolfWith all of the abuse Tiger Woods has taken from the media over the past couple years, with one scandal after another being obsessed over by the news networks, it is a little surprising he would want to play golf in front of anyone ever again. But the Farmer's Insurance Open will see the return of Tiger Woods to golf, and as a heavy favorite to win.
The Farmer's Insurance Open will take place from January 27-30 at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, California.
However, Tiger Woods is coming off of a recent injury, and his chances of overcoming the odds may be pretty small. He has experienced a number of injuries in recent months and years, all of which may be taking their toll on the star golfer. While he has won 6 of his 11 showings at Torrey Pines Golf Course, an injured Tiger is an injured Tiger, meaning he may not play at his full potential.
Other golfers may offer more value to the sports betting fan, including Nick Watney, Dustin Johnson, and Phil Mickelson. Watney won the Open in 2009 and ended 2010 ranked 8th. Dustin Johnson's game has been a bit of a roller coaster lately, with up and down games, but if he can put together consistent rounds of golf, he may have a chance at taking it all. Phil Mickelson has also been playing well lately, and is difficult to dismiss outright.
But with all of the hype surrounding Tiger Woods' return to Torrey Pines, it can be hard not to get caught up in the excitement. He has been such a phenomenon for the professional sport, as well as a phenomenal player in his own right. No matter who wins or who covers the odds, most of the attention will be focused on watching Tiger does what he does best (no, not chasing women): playing professional golf at a high level of expertise.
