Bo Van Pelt at 8/1 is the defending champion this week after annihilating the field last year by six shots. Three tap in birdies midway through the back nine separated Bo from the pack. This time around he’ll have Tiger Woods 3/1 to contend with but with a victory last week on the European Tour in Australia (don’t laugh) he’s bang in form to defend his title.
Jason Dufner at 8/1 marked Van Pelt all the way last week and tied 10th here last year. If he’s not smiling he’s happy, like Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street.
Jeff Overton 25/1 slipped up a little last time out at the McGladrey Classic (51st) after two strong late season top 10’s led us to believe better things were in store. Overton played in the final group here last year and remains one to watch.
Greg Chalmers 40/1 could not get anything going last week in Perth and still managed 10th place. Twice a Fall winner last season and showed good playoff form on the PGA Tour (9th at Barclays, 16th at BMW), discount him at your peril.
