Zach finished tied for 10th here last year.
T-14. Bubba Watson – 11 to 1 odds
5. He’s not played on tour in three months.
T-17. Mickelson has won this tournament three times including in 2013 and he should play better this week. You would expect Fowler to play better this week but he still only has three wins on the PGA Tour in 156 starts.
Fresh off his miraculous win at the Farmers Insurance Open last week in the awful wind and weather, Brandt Snedeker is the second choice in the betting odds this week at 14 to 1 odds. Dufner finally has his head straightened out after getting divorced from Amanda Boyd last year. Mahan has six wins on tour with his last win coming 18 months ago. He finished tied for 5th at the Sony Open in his last start on January 14.
Ian Poulter tied for 14th in Abu Dhabi two weeks ago in his last start. Gary Woodland has two PGA Tour wins with his last win coming in 2013. Matsuyama has just one PGA Tour win in 64 starts. Ryan Palmer is relatively low odds this week because he finished tied for second at the Phoenix Open last year in 2015. J.B. Simpson tied for 17th two weeks ago in his last start. With 12 career PGA Tour wins including the 2015 British Open, Zach Johnson is always a threat to win but his odds should be a little higher here. Poulter has 12 total wins on the PGA and European Tours combined but his last win was in 2012. Tiger Woods has never won the Phoenix Open but Jack Nicklaus won the tournament in 1964.
Good luck to all the PGA golfers and especially the bettors this week at the wild and woolly 2016 Phoenix Open!

12. Crowd favorite Phil Mickelson (1996, 2005, 2013) along with Arnold Palmer (1961-63), Gene Littler (1955, 1959, 1969) and Mark Calcavecchiacca (1989, 1992, 2011) all jointly hold the record for most wins at the Phoenix Open with three each.
T-6. 3. Na has earnings of $21 million.
Phil Mickelson laid an egg last week and missed the Farmers Insurance Open cut after playing well the week before. Baddeley’s last win was in 2011. He missed the cut last week at the Farmers Open but that was his first start on tour in almost two months.
Zach Johnson missed the cut two weeks ago in his last start. All the PGA golfers with betting odds of 50 to 1 or less in the 2016 Phoenix Open are listed below with comments plus a few notables with much higher betting odds.

Kyle Stanley – 150 to 1 odds
Kyle Stanley is 28 years old and his lone win on the PGA Tour was at the Phoenix Open in 2012. He’s lower odds here because he finished alone in 3rd place last week.
Hideki Matsuyama is usually pretty low in the betting odds each week but he rarely delivers a win. David Lingmerth – 40 to 1
Rickie Fowler won the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in impressive fashion two weeks ago and then laid an egg last week and missed the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open. Here is a list of the betting odds for the PGA players to win this week at the 2016 Phoenix Open.
David Lingmerth from Sweden won the 2015 Memorial last June for his first career win at age 27. Kevin Na tied for 3rd at La Quinta two weeks ago in his last start but he only has one win in 305 PGA Tour events. Palmer finished tied for 17th two weeks ago in his last start.
2. In his last start, Mahan tied for 43rd place last week. The wins was the eighth of Snedeker’s career and if you want to roll the dice with him here who can blame you after last week. Brandt Snedeker – 14 to 1
T-9. That was his first tournament since November.
Aaron Baddeley – 100 to 1
Aaron Baddeley is 34 years old and he has three wins on tour including the 2007 Phoenix Open. Bubba Watson has eight wins on the PGA Tour and he also won the Hero World Challenge in December of 2015.
The Phoenix Open dates back to 1932. Koepka played well at the Tournament of Champions finishing tied for 3rd but that was his last start and it was a month ago. He missed the cut at the Sony Open in his last start three weeks ago. Webb Simpson is 30 years old and he has four career PGA Tour wins but his last win was in 2013. Bubba Watson finished tied for second here last year and he certainly has the talent to win this but he’s not played since he finished tied for 10th at the Tournament of Champions on January 7, 2016. Ryan Palmer – 35 to 1
13. Lingmerth is lower odds here because he finished second two weeks ago at La Quitna losing the tournament in a playoff to Jason Dufner.
11. Woodland tied for 18th place last week. Kevin Streelman has two wins on tour with his last win in 2014. Holmes has four PGA Tour wins and two of them came in this tournament (2006, 2008). Brooks Koepka – 18 to 1
