The fifth Greenbrier Classic will take place this week, and as usual, there’s chances to walk away with big boy money if you’re able to pick the winner. The favorites start out at 12 times your money and it only goes up from there.
Here are a few names that you should include on your card for this week’s PGA event.
USA TODAY Sports
Bubba Watson – No Tiger Woods, no Phil Mickelson, Watson is the biggest name in this field, and you can get him at +1215 at most books. Those odds are pretty tasty for a player who is second in the FedEx Cup standings and has seven Top 10 finishes in his 13 events this season. Watson also has won two events this year and has shot under par in four of his last five events. It’s fair to say that Watson is having the best season of his career and he can certainly add to that with a win here. Nobody is beating Watson if he brings his A-game to this tournament.
Steve Stricker – Stricker will have his wife caddying this event. While that’s nothing new for the married couple who worked together earlier in Stricker’s career, it’s about time the bond between them on the course pays off. If sparks do fly, you can get odds of +2850, which seems like a good pay do to me. Yes, I know Stricker has been god awful this season and is ranked 131st in the FedEx Cup standings. However, Stricker has cracked the Top 25 in four of his seven events this season, which at least gives us a fighting chance with these odds. He’s also American, which has been the nationality of two of the first four winners at this event. Oh, and then there’s the special touch from his wife. Stricker is worth a bone or two.
Kevin Na – Na is much better than the +3 he shot at the U.S. Open. The good news is that he’s had many weeks to get that horrible performance out of his head and will be well rested for this match. Oh, and the fact that we’re getting odds of +2850 this week. Na is still 11th in the FedEx Cup standings and has five Top 5 finishes in the 18 events he’s played this season. Na doesn’t do anything spectacular and has one of the worst driving distances on tour, but he simply finds ways to put himself in a position to win. He’s worth a few dollars thrown his way.
