Odds To Win The Valspar Championship 2014

March 12, 2014

Some might lament the absence of the current “Big Three” of Woods, McIlroy and Mickelson, but the 2014 Valspar Championship has plenty of star power. Indeed, I’ll argue that for “real” golf fans, this is an excellent lineup precisely because of their absence. If Tiger were in the field, all we would hear about is the back. Rory would soak up all the attention with the “comeback’ storyline, and with Phil, we’d have to wade through the mounting US Open hype.

Instead, the media will be forced to spread the love and look for some stories we have not heard before. Indeed, some of the writers may actually be forced to leave the air-conditioned media area and the buffets of free food.

A Major Championship winner and a soon-to-be Major winner are the pair favored by the punters this week. Jason Dufner and Jordan Spieth are both in at 16/1.

Harris English, Justin Rose and Matt Kuchar fill the 3-4-5 spots at 18/1. These are big game golfers who have lived too long in the shadow cast by the media’s spotlight on the Big Three.

The field’s also got Luke Donald (20/1), who not too long ago was World Number One. Webb Simpson, a Major winner, is in at 22/1.

Other notables include Jim Furyk (25/1), Brandt Snedeker (40/1), KJ Choi (40/1), Louis Oosthuizen (40/1), and Ernie Els (50/1)
