  • BookMaker.eu The 2020 debut of Tiger Woods highlights this week’s stop on the PGA Tour when a full field gathers at Torrey Pines Golf Club for the Farmers Insurance Open. Woods has won the event seven times and conquered the Torrey Pines South Course to win the 2008 U.S. Open. He also had a decent fall with a record-tying 82nd Tour title and a win as player-coach at the Presidents Cup. All of that doesn’t make him the favorite, though. That distinction at online sportsbooks belongs to last season’s FedExCup champion Rory McIlroy. You can tell the Tour is getting ready for Major season with a stacked field ready to attack the North and South Course at Torrey Pines Visit BookMaker.eu for a complete list of matchup betting odds when you’re ready to place a wager. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu You can tell the PGA Tour is heating up by scrolling through the list of names in the field for this week’s Farmers Insurance Open. The biggest name is Tiger Woods, who makes his 2020 debut looking to break the record for all-time PGA Tour victories. And there’s no better event to do it at than this one, which the Big Cats has won seven times. It won’t be easy with defending champion Justin Rose and reigning FedExCup champion Rory McIlroy pegging it up at Torrey Pines Golf Club. To accommodate a... 

  • BookMaker.eu A return stateside has the PGA Tour getting the West Coast swing of the season underway in La Quinta, Calif. with the playing of The American Express. The name may have changed with a new title sponsor, but the pro-am and three-course format from the old Desert Classic days remain the same. Playing alongside a Rolex Series event on the Euro Tour and in between quality stops on the PGA circuit, the field is watered down. Phil Mickelson, in conjunction with his Foundation, is tournament host and will make his season debut. Rickie Fowler opened as the betting favorite at online sportsbooks, but odds suggest a wide-open field that leads to a number of intriguing tournament matchups. Visit BookMaker.eu for a complete list of matchup betting odds when you’re ready to place a wager. ...

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour stays in Hawai’i and expands the field for the Sony Open in Hawai’i, which gets underway on Thursday, January 9, at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu. For the first time in a few months we’ll have a full field of 144 golfers with the cut rule in place, and 23 players make the trek to Oahu from Maui after competing in last week’s Sentry Tournament of Champions.

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour season is off and running in the New Year, although it isn’t running very far. After opening 2020 last week in Maui, the Tour heads to Oahu for the Sony Open in Hawai’i, contested at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu. And unlike last week’s invitation-only event that featured 34 players, the field expands to 144 players this week with the cut rule back in place. Around 20 players made the trip from Maui to compete this week, including TOC winner Justin Thomas, who opened as the betting favorite at online sportsbooks. And there’s a good chance one of those golfers raises the trophy on Sunday with 15 of the past 21 Sony Open winners also competing in Maui the week before. Matt Kuchar attempts to become the fourth repeat champion at the Sony Open and has favorable odds to do so.

  • BookMaker.eu The Presidents Cup hasn’t been much of a competition over the years with Team USA winning the last seven events while going 10-1-1 since the first playing in 1994. Led by Tiger Woods, the U.S. squad is again a heavy favorite with all 12 team members among the top-24 in the Official World Golf Rankings. The International squad, led by Ernie Els, has just three players ranked among the top-25. That doesn’t mean victory for the Americans and the squad got greased up for the competition with 11 play... 

  • BookMaker.eu Competing against the Presidents Cup has left a void in the field, but that won’t stop the end of year fun and frivolity from continuing this week when 12 two-player teams vie for the title at the QBE Shootout, contested at the Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida, and hosted by Greg Norman.

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour puts a cap on the fall portion of the 2019-20 season this week with the playing of The RSM Classic on St. Simons Island, Georgia.

Youngster Viktor Hovland is the betting favorite at online spo...

  • BookMaker.eu The last World Golf Championship event of the calendar year and the first of the new season takes place this week in China with the WGC HSBC Champions teeing off at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai. With the PGA Tour finishing up its swing through Asia a number of high-profile players are scheduled to play. And besides, it’s a WGC event, so that also brings them out. We won’t see Tiger Woods after his historic triumph last week at the ZOZO Championship, though. The limited field of 78 golfers will all play 72 holes making for some interesting matchup selections.

  • BookMaker.eu The Bermuda Championship will make its debut on the PGA Tour this week as an alternate-field event to the WGC HSBC Champions, and it will take place at Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton. Playing alongside a WGC event we don’t have many big-name players in the field, which is a good thing for the golfers and for those wagering on the tournament. Houston Open winner Lanto Griffin opened as the betting favorite at offshore sportsbooks with odds of +1400. That alone tells us that oddsmakers are ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Asian swing of the PGA Tour continues this week with a stop in Japan for the inaugural ZOZO Championship.

  • BookMaker.eu A new slot on the fall schedule has caused a problem for the Houston Open, which gets underway this week at the Golf Club of Houston Tournament Course. Coming off an 18-month hiatus and no longer the lead-in tournament to The Masters, the talent level has faded with only two players ranked among the OWGR top-50 scheduled to compete. Henrik Stenson, the top ranked player at No. 37 and the headliner, is the betting favorite. The betting odds suggest a wide-open field that will make for crazy times... 

  • BookMaker.eu Some fall events on the PGA Tour have attracted a strong field of players. Unfortunately, the Houston Open isn’t one of them. No longer leading up to The Masters on the Tour schedule this event has seen a significant drop in the talent level. That doesn’t mean it lacks for wagering opportunities. Quite the contrary. There are a number of players offering a nice payday if they can come through with a victory. Henrik Stenson is the most recognizable name in the field to golf fans and he’s the bett...
