Tiger Woods is back! The Hero World Challenge could be the place he announces his arrival back to competitive golf in style. After all, it is one of those events where it could actually happen. With only 18 players taking part in this no-cut event it gives Woods a fantastic opportunity to do so. Apparently, he is even outdriving Dustin Johnson!
However, the bookies don’t hold much hope for Tiger and have placed him as the 18th favourite in this 18 man field. It doesn’t bode well for him but golf is a funny thing. Justin Thomas starts as the favourite alongside Dustin Johnson who both start at 6/1 with many bookies.
With such a small field and no cut affecting them, this could be a good time to get some great value. So here is who takes the Spivs fancy this week.
Rickie Fowler 9/1 (SkyBet)
Placed as the fourth favourite his odds are low due to the limited field but here is a player that can deliver. Fresh from his second-place finish at the OHL Classic, Fowler will be looking to end the year on a high. Bet to win on this one as an Each Way provides little value.
Patrick Reed 20/1 (William Hill)
Reed enters the Hero World Challenge following a T-10 at the DP World Tour Championship. He has also performed well in the past finishing in second place in 2015. Form and knowledge could work well for him and these are great odds for such a limited field.
Matt Kuchar 28/1 (Ladbrokes)
Kuch came third here last year and is arguably one of the most consistent players out there. Only two missed cuts for the whole season has seen him rise up the World rankings. No idea why he is so unfancied here so might be a good opportunity to get some cash from this event. Solid Each Way.
Tiger Woods 45/1 (StanJames)
They say you should never let your heart rule your head when it comes to betting but I just can’t help this one. Perhaps I’ve fallen for the hype but come on...Tiger’s back and at these odds it is well worth a couple of quid just to hope that he can do it.
