The Tour Championship and an agonizing (for the U.S. team) Ryder Cup are in the books, leading to the start of the fall season. Once again, the Tour heads to Summerlin, one of the easiest tracks on the Tour. Here’s a look at the best bets to come away with a win…
Nick Watney (15/1): Watney is one of the few top names in this field, and he led this tournament heading into Sunday a year ago (settling for a solo runner-up finish). He’s still just a little more than a month removed from his win at The Barclays.
Vijay Singh (25/1): He was rounding into form late in the summer, with three top-10s in his past six starts. In a weak field, he could very well grab his first win of 2012.
Ryan Moore (12/1): The UNLV alum will be playing in familiar territory, which is a big reason he is the tournament favorite. Moore had a big finish this summer, going top-10 in his last three starts in the FedExCup playoffs.
Robert Garrigus (15/1): He finished the FedExCup playoffs with a couple of top-10s and should carry that momentum into Vegas. Garrigus is winless in 2012, but had three runner-up finishes this year.
Ryan Palmer (30/1): Palmer’s aggression should be rewarded and his sloppiness should be marginalized on a forgiving course like Summerlin. He finished 16th on the Tour in driving distance (302.3) and 18th in par breakers (21.61%).
