Bet The 2009 Barclays

Woods enters the tournament as a 7/4 favorite to win according to the online sports book SPORTS Other short odds to win are Padraig Harrington (22/1), Phil Mickelson (30/1), Steve Stricker (33/1), Hunter Mahan (35/1), and Sergio Garcia (35/1).

Woods is coming off his runner-up finish at the PGA Championship, which was the first time he lost a major championship after leading through three rounds. Prior to the loss to Y.E. Yang two week ago, Woods won back-to-back events. Aside from missing the cut in the British Open, Woods hasn’t finished outside the top 10 in any four-round tournaments this year.

Harrington struggled early in the 2009 season, but has been playing strong in his last two outings, finishing 10th at the PGA Championship and second at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Harrington finished second at this event last year and won The Barclays in 2005.

Mickelson has struggled since returning to the tour after taking time off to be with his wife, who was battling breast cancer. Mickelson has finished no better than 58th in his last two tournaments. Prior to his departure, Mickelson won two events and had six top-10 finishes.

Stricker is the 2007 champion of The Barclays and has eight top 10’s in 2009 with two victories. Excluding major championships, Stricker has finished 27th or better in his last eight events.

Mahan is coming off six top-15 finishes in his last seven events. Mahan is winless this season, but has six top 10’s in 2009. Garcia is a two-time Barclays winner, taking the title in 2004 and 2001. Garcia is coming off a fourth place finish at the Wyndham Championship last week and he finished second at the 2008 Barclays.
