The Greenbrier Classic

The PGA Tour brought on the Greenbrier Classic back in 2010 to replace the Buick Open. And while the event is new, the golf course that the Tour competes on is anything but. opening in 1914, the Old White TPC is one of the most famous courses in the East of the United States. The Old White plays at 7,254 yards as a Par-70, which makes it one of the longer Par-70 golf courses on the PGA Tour.

Despite its length though, the Old White TPC has traditionally yielded low scores to players, as evidence by players reaching close to 20-under par to win. The winner of the Greenbrier Classic receives 500 FedEx Cup Points, and a first place prize of about $1.1 million.

What Happened In 2012?

We had to go three playoff holes at the 2012 Greenbrier Classic before the event was decided. Ted Potter Jr. and Troy Kelly battled it out well past 72 holes, each finishing 16-under par for the event, which was two shots clear of the rest of the field. It was Potter who prevailed with a birdie on the third playoff hole to win the tournament. Potter carded a round of 64 on Sunday to play his way into the playoff, which was two shots better than Kelly. There was just one score better than Potter on Sunday for the entire field.

Vegas Lines On Winner Of Greenbrier Classic

Bill Haas broke through with his first win on the 2013 PGA Tour this past Sunday, coming from behind to shoot at 66 in the final round for the victory. Haas won't soak in the win for very long before he is back on the course this Thursday for the playing of the 2013 Greenbrier Classic.

Haas will be joined by several top-tier players in the field this week, led by Phil Mickelson. Many of you may remember that Mickelson held the final round lead in the 2013 U.S. Open, only to lose out to Justin Rose in the end. The second place finish was the sixth of Mickelson career in the U.S. Open.

With the British Open on the horizon in the middle of July, you have to think that Mickelson is locked and loaded and ready to put that disappointment behind him, beginning with this week. He will face some stiff competition from both the field, and the difficult course in The Old White TPC.

Let's take a look at who the favorites are this week.

Phil Mickelson 12/1 (+1200) - Mickelson is on top of the odds to win the 2013 Greenbrier Classic. Lefty played very well in difficult conditions at the U.S. Open, it was just the simple fact that he couldn't make a putt. He really hit the ball great, and if that ball striking continues he will have plenty of chances to make birdies.

Webb Simpson 14/1 (+1400) - Simpson hasn't won at the Greenbrier Classic, but he does have a track record of nice finishes. He has two top-10s in his career at The Old White TPC, combined with the fact that he just recently finished in the top-five at his last event he played two weeks ago in the Travelers Championship.

Bill Haas 18/1 (+1800) - Haas is the most recent winner on the PGA Tour, winning the AT&T National, Tiger Woods' tournament. Despite Woods not playing because of an elbow injury, Haas defeated a top-notch field for his first in 2013.

Bubba Watson 18/1 (+1800) - Bubba Watson finally got into contention late on Sunday for the first time in what has seemed like forever. But he had some struggles down the stretch, in particular with his caddie. Watson finished in solo fourth place, which i his first top-five finish in 2013.

Graham Delaet 22/1 (+2200) - Graham Delaet comes into this week as a very hot golfer, with back-to-back top-10 finishes, including a third place finish at the Travelers Championship and a T8 performance at the AT&T National this past week.

The Winner - We are going to go just outside the top-five favorites this week and pick a golfer who has been playing well all year long. Billy Horschel has been the players in 2013 who has arguably made the biggest rise. He didn't play well at the AT&T National, but one bad week doesn't deter us from going with him. And at 25/1, it's a nice margin of profit as well.

The DarkHorse Value Bet - Ted Potter Jr. is the defending champion this week, and at 80/1 is getting a big payout should he defend his title. Potter obviously has good feelings about this golf course, and one thing that anyone who plays golf knows is that a course that sets up well for you can get you into contention even on off weeks.
