TV: GOLF, CBS
The Quicken Loans National will get underway on Thursday, which marks the return of Tiger Woods. With some of the top players taking this week off, odds are wide open, giving you a serious chance if you can pick the winner correctly.
Here are three players you should include on your card.
USA TODAY Sports
Tiger Woods - Woods admitted that he’s going to be a bit rusty and it will take time to get back to 100 percent after missing so much time due to injury. However, there’s no denying that Woods at 75 percent of even 50 percent is still better than most of the players on tour. What makes things even better is there’s no Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy or Phil Mickelson to compete against. Woods has also had success at this event, as two of his last 12 PGA wins have come at the Quicken Loans National, which was once known as the AT&T National. Rusty or not, I’m giving Woods a shot in the dark at odds of +1400.
Bill Haas – Haas’ last victory came at this event back in 2013, and he seems like he’s on the verge of picking up his sixth PGA win at any moment. Hass has shot under par in four of his last five events and has finished in the Top 10 in three of his 18 events this season. He was a brutal disappointment at the U.S. Open, but a week off should do wonders for the 32-year-old. There aren’t many big names participating in this match, which gives guys like Hass a real fighting chance to walk away with victory. He’s worth a shot with odds of +2500.
K.J. Choi – Speaking of guys playing well and former winners at this event, Choi is worth some of your money at odds of +3000. Choi won the first AT&T Open back in 2007 and is playing some of his best golf at the season at this very moment. He’s coming off a performance where he shot a -17 at the Travelers Tournament and he shot a -7 at the Players Championship. Choi has played in 15 events and this season and has six Top 25 finishes and two finishes where he finished second. Look for him to have another strong performance in this tournament.
