Tiger Woods Favored At 2011 Chevron World Challenge [Odds]

November was a pretty good month for Tiger Woods with a third place finish at the Australian Open and clinching the Presidents Cup for the United States with a dominant singles match win. Now Tiger will try for his first tournament win in over two years at the Chevron World Challenge in California, and he’s the +375 betting favorite to get it done.

At last year’s Chevron Challenge, Tiger had a four-shot lead going into the final round, but lost in a playoff to Graeme McDowell. McDowell is in South Africa this year playing in the Nedbank Golf Challenge, so Tiger’s stiffest challenge in the Chevron’s elite 18-golfer field is expected to come from Webb Simpson (+900).

Besides Simpson, there are three other golfers in the World Top 10 battling for the $1.25 million top prize — Steve Stricker, Jason Day and Nick Watney. The field also includes 2011 FedExCup champ Bill Haas and 2011 PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley, who many thought should have gotten the Presidents Cup captain’s pick that went to Tiger.

Tiger has won this event four times, most recently in 2007. The only other former winner in the field is Jim Furyk, who was a perfect 5-0 at the Presidents Cup.
