2014 WGC Cadillac Championship - Vegas Odds, Picks + Tee Times
The 2014 WGC Cadillac Championship should have one of the best fields that will be seen on the PGA Tour outside of the Major Championships. Being a World Golf Championship event, the field is very exclusive. TPC Blue Monster is one of the most famous courses in the U.S. with arguably the most daunting finishing hole in existence. Donald Trump has been in charge of a redesign effort that will be on full display for the 2014 edition of the tournament.
While there will be some changes to the course, it would be hard-pressed to think that anything will have been done to No.18. The long par-4 with water running down the left-hand side of the hole down to the green gives even the best golfers in the world nightmares. It makes for some dramatic finishes, where players must choose whether to play aggressive or conservative.
The 2014 WGC Cadillac Championship will begin play on Thursday, March 6th and come to an end on Sunday, March 9 barring inclement weather and other delays. Golf Channel will air coverage of the weekday rounds on Thursday + Friday starting at 1pm ET. GC will also have Saturday and Sunday coverage starting at 12pm and going through 5pm. NBC will pick up coverage at 2pm on Saturday but will start one hour later on Sunday at 3pm ET going through 7pm ET.
TPC Blue Monster at Doral, Miami, Florida
A long-time Florida favorite, the Doral Golf Resort & Spa is one of the Southeast's most prominent golfing communities; it was founded in 1962 by Alfred Kaskel, a real estate pioneer, and named in tribute to his dear bride, Dorris. The facility has an impressive 90 holes of golf, including its champion course, known as the TPC Blue Monster at Doral.
Though the facility is now part of the Trump empire, its prestigious history stretches back a long way. The TPC Blue Monster itself is the famed venue of the Cadillac Championship. The course—a par-72 with total yardage coming in at 7,288—was designed by Dick Wilson. For the Blue Monster, players need to bring the right combination of finesse and endurance if they are to succeed; though the course appears simple at first glance, its strategic bunkers make for truly competitive play.

The Cadillac Championship should group the pairings by World Ranking, which is what has been done in the past. But the rankings will be changing weekly up through the Honda Classic, so really there would be no way to predict pairings prior to that. Once the tee times are set, you can get them all here which will also come along with 3-ball betting odds for the groups each day, and 2-ball odds on the weekend.
2013 WGC-Cadillac Championship
In all of the wins and all of the top performances that Tiger Woods has had in his career, he never put together a better week putting than he did at TPC Blue Monster for the 2013 WGC Cadillac Championship. Woods tallied just 100 putts in four days, averaging 25 per round. The result was a two-shot victory over Steve Stricker, as Woods won his second of five events in 2013. The win was the 76th of his career, inching him close to 82.
What was quite interesting about Woods besting Stricker by two strokes was that the No.1 player in the world actually received a putting tip from his Ryder Cup buddy prior to that week. Stricker noticed something in Woods putting stroke and the two worked on it just days before the first round.
