Odds To Win The Frys.Com Open 2011

It’s Deja Vu all over again as Tiger Woods is the 7/1 favorite to win the 2011 Frys.Com Open.

In truth, it’s a little strange to see the Striped One play in the Fall Series with the likes of David Duval, Pat Perez and other somewhat marginal players on the Tour. Tiger’s presence normally signals the appearance of all of the sport’s luminaries. But it’s been a strange year. The only other marquee name this weekend is Ernie Els (28/1) who has himself had a strange couple of seasons.

Speaking of strangeness … Kevin Na is in second at 25/1. Na, who in recent years has gained a reputation for agonizingly slow play, had yet to live down his 14-over-par excursion through the woods at the Valero Texas Open when he added a “whiff” to his resume while winning last week’s Justin Timberlake.

Also at 25 to one are Paul Casey and Spencer Levin.

Speaking of slow play, Ben Crane is in the field at 33/1. He adds to the strangeness with his training and Golf Boys videos.

From a purely perverse angle, I’d like to see an opening round trio of Tiger, Kevin Na and Ben Crane. Tiger’s no speedy player himself, but I’ll bet those two would drive him to homicide.

  1. Seems like Micheel should be higher than 200 to 1.  Also Gainey at 50 to 1 seems a little long – Two Gloves is due, and it will be interesting to see what happens against this field for him.

    Also strange is the absence of Rickie Fowler.  If I am not mistaken, he finished strong in this event last year, and against a weaker field he was sure to finish strong this year.  Also I think he lived in Vegas last year. 

    Tiger with single digit odds?  Seems stupid, however, if he was lumped in with the 1/25 guys then I wouldn’t have a problem with that.  In fact if there were a couple guys at 1/15 or so, I might put Tiger there.  I do think he will finish well, and has as good a chance as any to win, maybe a better chance.  If he does blow up and miss the cut or finish at T70, it will be interesting to see if Couples gets much heat.  Also I think there is a decent chance that if he is +6 or so, he could be having an “injury”.  Then how does he come back for the Australian or Presidents?
