2013 Reno-Tahoe Open Betting Odds + Info, Tee Times, Coverage

The top players in the world will be on display at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational this week, but there will be another tournament played as well. That will be out in Reno, Nevada for the playing of the Reno-Tahoe Open. Montreux Golf & Country Club will be the site of the 2013 Reno-Tahoe Open, as players will get the chance to earn up to 250 FedEx Cup points late in the season to improve their standings if they are not invited to the Bridgestone Invitational.

The Golf Channel will have coverage of the Reno-Tahoe Open all week long, but there could be some tape delays as opposed to live coverage because of the extensive coverage that the WGC Bridgestone Invitational will receive all week long, especially on Thursday and Friday when GC will have all of the Bridgestone Invitational coverage.

The Reno-Tahoe Open

The Reno-Tahoe Open was started back in 1999, and has been played at Montreux Golf & Country Club every year since its inception. The Reno-Tahoe Open is an official event on the PGA Tour, however only half of the FedEx Cup points are awarded for this event, as opposed to most every other PGA Tour event.

That is because the Reno-Tahoe Open is played on the same weekend as the WGC Bridgestone Invitational. This is a World Golf Championships event, where the top-ranked players in the world will play. Because it is one of the handful of invitational tournaments on Tour, the PGA gives players who do not qualify the chance to play and earn FedEx Cup points and prize money elsewhere.

This is also a unique format because of the scoring system. Started in 2012, the Reno-Tahoe Open utilizes the Stableford style of sports, with players earning one point for birdies and two points for eagles. Points are also lost for bogeys, double-bogeys, and worse.

What Happened In 2012?

The 2012 edition of the Reno-Tahoe Open was won by J.J. Henry. Henry captured the title over Alexandre Rocha and Andres Romero. The 2012 tournament saw the introduction of the Stableford Style points system, versus the score in relation to par. Henry earned 43 points for a one-point victory. This was the first tie the Stableford points system was used since the 2006 PGA Tour season.

2013 Reno-Tahoe Open

The 2013 Reno-Tahoe Open will get underway on Thursday, though the majority of focus on the golfing world will be in Ohio for the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

Betting odds for the 2013 Reno-Tahoe Open have been released for the week. The top-five favorites are listed below, plus the full-odds in the table.

Chad Campbell 25/1 (+2500) - The betting lines start high with an event like this, because none of the players are qualified for the WGC event. So the field is wide open. Campbell finished T16 in the Canadian Open and T7 at the Sanderson farms championship.

J.J. Henry 28/1 (+2800) - Henry finished T31 at the RBC Canadian Open last week, but did manage a top1- finish at the John Deere Classic.

Padraig Harrington 28/1 (+2800) - Harrington played in the Open Championship but managed only a T54 performance. He does have three top-10 finishes this year, with the last coming at the St. Jude Classic in June.

Peter Uihlein 28/1 (+2800) - Uihlein is still on the Challenge Tour working his way up to a PGA Tour card. A win this week would help that cause.

Rory Sabbatini 28/1 (+2800) - Sabbatini has been hot and cold of late, either missing the cut, or finishing near or in the top-15. He finished T12 at the Canadian Open last week.
