CareerBuilder Challenge

PGA WEST TPC Stadium Course – La Quinta, CA

The PGA Tour exits Hawaii and heads to California for the CareerBuilder Challenge on Thursday.

After playing back-to-back tournaments in Hawaii, the PGA golfers now head to La Quinta for the third event of the calendar year. This tournament is sure to be an exciting one as the past eight winners have shot 22-under or better.

A few guys that will be really excited to be back at this course are Bill Haas, Patrick Reed and Phil Mickelson. Both Haas and Mickelson are two-time winners at this event. Haas was the champion a year ago, but Patrick Reed was the winner in 2014. His score of 28-under was the best score to ever be posted at this course in a 72-hole tournament.

While this field is void of guys like Jason Day and Jordan Spieth, there is plenty of talent to go around. Let’s now take a look at who might be winning this thing on Sunday:

Patrick Reed (+750) - As mentioned earlier, Reed has this course’s best score over a 72-hole period and that should not be taken lightly. He knows how to get it done in La Quinta and his odds are actually quite favorable for a tournament favorite.

Reed also happens to be coming into this weekend in tremendous form. He has shot a -22 in back-to-back tournaments, finishing in second place at both the World Challenge and the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Reed is certainly worth putting a few units on this weekend.

Matt Kuchar (+1900) - Kuchar has never won the CareerBuilder Challenge, but he has been the runner-up in each of the years that Bill Haas came away as the champion (2001, 2015). This is the year he’ll be hoping that he breaks through to win the event, and he has as good of a chance as anybody. Kuchar knows this course extremely well and comes into this event after two solid outings. He has shot a 12-under at the past two events and is a good player to throw a unit or two on in this one.

Phil Mickelson (+3500)- Mickelson has not yet played in a tournament this season, but it’s hard to ignore his history at the CareerBuilder Challenge. As previously mentioned, Mickelson has already won this event twice in his career. His odds are extremely favorable  and he should be very well rested considering he has not been playing. Mickelson is one of the best golfers to ever play and he is worth placing a unit on at a course he is very comfortable with.

Mark Hubbard (+45000) - If you’re looking for a sleeper at this tournament then look no further than Hubbard. Hubbard is getting absurd odds at +45000 and he has looked quite good early in the year. He finished 7-under and t-56th at the Sony Open last week and 9-under and t-18th at the RSM Classic in November. Hubbard eagled twice at the Sony Open and if it weren’t for three double bogeys then he would have finished way higher up in the standings. If he can avoid costly mistakes like that then he could sneak his way to the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.
