Bill Haas will try for his third title this year at the CareerBuilder Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation, which takes place from January 21st through January 24th, 2016 at the La Quinta Country Club and the PGA West Stadium Course in La Quinta, California. Considering his success at this event in the past, Haas should be among the players favored in golf wagering.
Bill Haas captured his second win at this tournament last year as he finished with a 22-under and defeated a large field by a stroke Haas picked up his first win at this event in 2010, shooting a 30-under to win his first PGA Tour event of his career. The 33-year-old now has seven professional wins including six on the PGA Tour. He was also the 2011 FedEx Cup champion. Haas’ win at this event last year marked his only victory of the 2015 season.
Other former champions at the CareerBuilder Challenge include Patrick Reed, Phil Mickelson and Patrick Reed. Mickelson is a two-time champion at this tournament with his first win here coming in 2002 and his most recent occurring in 2004. The 45-year-old is also a five-time major champion and has captured 51 professional wins in his career. Mickelson’s most recent PGA Tour victory was at The Open Championship in 2013. He tied for second at the Masters Tournament last year, losing to World No. 1 Jordan Spieth. Reed was the 2014 winner at this event and broke the tournament record for 72 holes with a 28-under 260. Reed has four PGA Tour wins in his career with his most recent coming at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on January 12th where he shot a 21-under and defeated Jimmy Walker in a playoff to take the crown. Reed came close to winning another tournament last year, but lost to Spieth in a playoff at the Valspar Championship in March.
Mark Wilson, Jhonattan Vegas and Pat Perez have also won this event in years past. This tournament, formerly known as the Humana Challenge and the Bob Hope Classic, was established in 1960. The tournament not only features a new name this year under the CareerBuilder Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation but also two new courses with the addition of the two PGA West Stadium Courses this year in golf betting.

How to bet on CareerBuilder Challenge
The odds of a golfer to win the CareerBuilder Challenge will generally look something like:
- Tiger Woods + 150
- Phil Mickelson + 250
- Steve Stricker + 300
- Jeff Overton + 700
- Ernie Els + 700
- Field + 600
These betting odds will be lower when betting on a golfer to finish in the top three, as the sportsbook must pay off three different winning bets.
A player would have to bet $10 to win $150 that Tiger Woods will win the CareerBuilder Challenge, while the bettor wagering on Jeff Overton stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in PGA golf is head-to-head finish between two players. With this bet, a player doesn't really care what place the golfer finishes in, as long as the golfer wagered on finishes higher than the other golfer.
A head-to-head betting line for the CareerBuilder Challenge will look something like:
- Tiger Woods - 190 Steve Stricker + 150
In this bet, players wagering on Woods to finish higher than Stricker will be asked to risk $19 to win $10, while bettors believing that Stricker will finish higher than Woods will bet $10 to win $15.
Those familiar with sports betting will have no trouble making the transition to PGA golf wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of PGA golf betting without to much trouble.
