Waste Management Phoenix Open betting guide

The PGA Tour heads to Arizona this week for the usually exciting and occasionally raucous Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Last year Phil Mickelson nearly shot the 36-hole PGA Tour record when he followed his first round 60 with a second round 65.

Phil is favourite this year as well, but has been nursing a back injury so 16/1 is too short for us.

Ryan Palmer at 25/1 with Ladbrokes has had an excellent start to the 2014 season including a 2nd placed finish in his last outing at the Humana Challenge. Finished 5th here last season so should do well.

Bill Haas at 25/1 with Ladbrokes is another player who did well here last season (Tied 6th) and has had a good start to the season with 4 top 25 finishes from his 5 starts, including one top 10.

Gary Woodland at 33/1 with Ladbrokes challenged well last week until an errant drive on the 71st hole cost him. Was Top 20 here last season so I expect him to feature on Sunday again.

Lee Westwood at 50/1 with Ladbrokes very long odds for such a dangerous player. His game may not be at 100% and this is his first visit to this event, but the atmosphere should lift him.

Nicolas Colsaerts at 66/1 with Ladbrokes Last year he followed a first round 65 with a second round 75 to miss the cut. A promising event last week ended with a poor weekend, good each way value.
