Odds To Win The Players Championship 2012

World number one Rory McIlroy is—appropriately I think—the favorite at this week’s Players Championship. Given 9/1 odds, he’s several points better than the next in line, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald. Both of those are 14/1, for an effective 6.67% chance of winning.

Phil Mickelson is next in at 20/1 along with—amazingly, I think, Tiger Woods. When will people wake up and realize that this guy isn’t a top five favorite in every tournament he enters. In case anybody wasn’t paying attention, Woods missed the cut at the Wells Fargo. To be sure, Mickelson barely made the line himself, but at least had a decent weekend and ended up in a T26.

Hunter Mahan, Jason Dufner and Steve Stricker are in the next group at 33/1. Mahan is just one of two PGA Tour players in his twenties with five or more wins (the other is Dustin Johnson). That’s a pretty good record. Dufner has actually shown flashes of brilliance in recent months, and Stricker is … Stricker.

Finally, there’s a huge group at 40/1 (effective 2.44% chance of winning): Adam Scott, Jason Day, Jim Furyk, Justin Rose, Louis Oosthuizen, Nick Watney, Sergio Garcia and Webb Simpson. None of those would be a surprise to win.
