Wednesday Jan 20 – Sunday Jan 24, 2010
SilverRock Resort, La Quinta CC, PGA WEST · La Quinta, Calif.
Mike Weir 20/1
Canadian Mike Weir gets his first run out of the season in this somewhat depleted Bob Hope field. Its usually a birdie fest at this five round event with a rare chance for the shorter hitters to compete for a win. Weir has won here in 2003, tied fifth in 2006 and tied third last year when Pat Perez blew the field away with a 61 opening round.
Tim Clark 20/1
This week will mark another milestone for tiny Tim Clark as he passes the $14 million mark in career earnings. And that’s without a win in 196 starts! Something surely has to give in 2010 and though it’s early in the season La Quinta could suit Clark’s excellent putting.
Chad Campbell 20/1
Don’t you just think Chad should perform a whole lot better than he actually does? From a high of 27th in the world in 2006 (aided by a win at the Bob Hope Classic) he has slipped to around the 60 mark for the past three seasons. However a good tied 8th in his first outing at the Sony Open last week gives him a sneak this week. Played well last year tying 8th and but for a very poor second round could have contended.
