Valspar Championship - Tiger Looking Sharp

By: America's Bookie     Date: Mar 9, 2018

Tiger Woods has never played the Valspar Championship and he looks to be in rare form in his first ever round. Woods shot 1 under for 70 and sits nicely behind the current leader Corey Conners after the first round of 18.

Tigers stock has steadily been on the rise and he looks to be somewhat back in recent months. After much rest, practice and consternation surrounding his illustrious career, he looks to have finally turned the corner. The question is can he keep up the pace? Golf is a grind and he, more than anyone knows all about the struggles of this long walk.

Who Looks Hot Coming In?

Jordan Spieth 66/1 Outright: Spieth skipped the Valspar last season, but has never finished worse than 20th in four career visits, including a win in 2015. His putting continues to trouble him, although a 14th last week in Mexico was his fifth Top 20 finish of 2018.

Rory McIlroy 50/1 Outright: This is McIlroy's first ever trip to The Copperhead Course as he continues to try to find his game before heading to Augusta. Rory has played three events in the U.S. in 2018 and has gone CUT-20-59.

Sergio Garcia 12/1 Outright: The defending Masters Champion made his U.S. debut two weeks ago at The Honda Classic where he finished 33rd. He was in the mix all week in Mexico and ended up taking seventh. He has not played here in five years, but was seventh in his last visit in 2013.

Henrik Stenson 66/1 Outright: Stenson makes his 2018 U.S. debut after a couple of Top 10 finishes on The European Tour back in January. His accuracy off of the tee and supreme ball striking skills go a long way here at Innisbrook, where in three visits over the last three years, he's gone 7-11-4.

Paul Casey 14/1 Outright: Speaking of ball striking, Casey is another one of the best there is. He hasn't been here in three years and his last two trips resulted in missed cuts. However, he is coming off of a 12th place finish last week in Mexico and took eighth at Pebble Beach last month.

Tiger Woods 14/1 Outright: Like Rory, Tiger is making his Valspar Championship debut but he showed signs two weeks ago at The Honda that he can ball strike his way around this track and be a factor. He ranked 10th in the field for Greens in Regulation, first in Hole Proximity and 11th in Scrambling.

Tiger had his share of frustrations in the first round and it showed, however, he was composed (for the most part) and he held it together to hang in and finish third for the day and opening round. This harkens back to the days of old when Tiger found his way through frustration and flat out buried the competition. Now he may not bury the competition but at 14/1 he is a great buy. Are we saying that he is going to win the tournament and it’s a lock? Absolutely not! But 14/1 is still a great buy. Betting golf is not easy but it’s fun. It’s like betting NASCAR. You pick a few favorites and hope one of them comes home for you.
