Re: 2014 PGA Humana Challenge Odds To Win: Three Golfers Favored

Humana Challenge Preview and Picks
By Matt Fargo
Playbook.com

The PGA stops in La Quinta, California for the Humana Challenge from The Club at PGA West.

Last week at the Sony Open in Hawaii, Jimmy Walker finished strong to win his second tournament of the season and second of his career. The PGA Tour leaves the island of Hawaii and heads to the mainland this week for the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation, formally known as the Bob Hope Classic.

This will be the third consecutive year of a tournament change. What used to be a five-day event has been scaled back to the customary four days and the Pro-Am portion of it has been scaled back to just three days with Sunday being played by professionals only.

If you like birdies, you have come to the right place. This is where Joe Durant’s -36 in 2001, the lowest score in PGA Tour history and David Duval’s 59 in 1999, took place. Since this is a Pro-Am event, patience is key as the rounds are not quick and there are tons of distractions along the way. Players who hit the ball straight, hit a lot of greens and putt well have the best chances here.

This used to be one of the biggest stops on tour but it slowly started going downhill as the big name players opted out. Part of the reason is that the European Tour has hosted the Abu Dhabi Championship on the same weekend many times which is the case again this year. Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Luke Donald are just a few of the big names teeing it up in the United Arab Emirates but the Humana Challenge still features a solid lineup.

Webb Simpson and Zach Johnson are co-favorites (+1,200) but we will be looking just below them four our top guy in Brandt Snedeker (+1,500). He finished T11 at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, his first start since coming back from a knee injury. He took last week off which will help him here and he has had success in this event with a T8 in 2012 and a T10 in 2010.

Gary Woodland (+2,500) took last week off following his T13 at the Hyundai and actually went back home to tweak some things in his swing. He had a strong finish to last season with a win at the Reno-Tahoe Open and then a T2 at The Barclays three weeks later. He then added a solo second at the CIMB Classic in October. He lost in a playoff here in 2011 and is a birdie machine

Charles Howell III (+3,000) is coming off his fourth top ten of the season, the most on tour, after a T8 last week at the Sony. He opened with a disappointing 71 but he closed strong which gives him some momentum heading to California. He lost in a playoff here last year and he has made the cut in all four starts since returning in 2010 after a couple years off. Still looking for his first win since 2007.

After some inconsistent play to open the season, Ryan Palmer (+3,000) finished T8 last week which he can ride into the Humana Challenge. He has three career wins, his last coming at the Sony Open in 2010. He has been a solid player at he start of seasons and last year his T6 finish here was the best of his career. He opened last week with a 65 and another strong start should have him around on Sunday.

Brendon De Jonge (+5,000) has played very well here and is worth a hard look at this price. This tournament is known for low scoring and De Jonge led the tour in birdies last season with 399. His best finish here is a T12 back in 2012 but he has a streak of 17 straight rounds under par so he is very capable of going low. He is coming off a T51 last week but was consistent throughout.

Recommended Tournament Win Five Pack at the Humana Challenge - (all for one unit)

Brandt Snedeker (+1,500)
Gary Woodland (+2,500)
Charles Howell III (+3,000)
Ryan Palmer (+3,000)
Brendon De Jonge (+5,000)

Re: 2014 PGA Humana Challenge Odds To Win: Three Golfers Favored

Tour heads to La Quinta
By Sportsbook.ag

Tournament: Humana Challenge
Date: Jan. 16-19, 2014
Venue: The Club at PGA West & La Quinta Country Club
Location: La Quinta, California
2013 Winner: Brian Gay

An impressive group, including 17 past major winners, heads to California for the Humana Challenge, played over multiple courses in the Coachella Valley. Last year’s tournament saw a shootout in which three players (Brian Gay, Charles Howell III, David Lingmerth) shot 25-under par, resulting in a two-hole playoff where Gay came away the victor.

Golfers to Watch

Webb Simpson (12/1): While Simpson has not been in the top-10 at this tournament since 2009, including a missed cut last year, his recent play warrants him consideration this time around. He has placed in the top-7 in his past four tournaments in 20013-2014, including a win in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open last October and a third-place finish at Kapalua to start the new year.

Zach Johnson (12/1): Johnson has been the hottest player on tour recently with top-8 finishes over his past three tournaments, including two victories. He has shot 68 or better in 12 of his past 15 rounds, and has the second-highest driving accuracy so far this season (74.1%). In a tournament that is so low scoring, he should really have some great opportunities.

Brian Gay (40/1): Gay was the winner of this event last season and placed in the top-15 in both 2010 and 2011. His recent play has not been the greatest though, placing lower than 30th in four of his past six tournaments, but could be revived in a place where has had success in the past. Gay enters Thursday with a combined minus-18 score in his past six rounds.

Bill Haas (25/1): The 31-year-old Haas is currently ranked 31st in the world while placing in the top-25 in each of his last five tournaments, including all four in the 2014 season. He missed the cut last year at the Humana Challenge, but placed second in 2011 when it was known as the Bob Hope Classic and won the tournament in 2010.

Brian Stuard (50/1): Another 31-year-old, Stuard has two straight top-6 finishes, placing 6th in the Sony Open last week and coming in 2nd in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba back in November. He placed 10th the first time playing this event, which included a 10-under 62 on Saturday (8 birdies, 2 eagles, 2 bogeys), and could ride his recent play to his second career PGA victory this weekend.
