The Northern Trust Open is part of the PGA Tour and takes place each year during February with a prize purse of $6.4 million on offer. It takes place at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California. Players' form for the season will start to become a bit clearer by this point which will certainly help when placing bets and it might be worth looking away from the favourites' odds as several winners in the past have included slightly lesser lights from the tour.
The names of Steve Stricker, Rory Sabbatini and Mike Weir come to mind, but Phil Mickelson, who has won the PGA Championship in the past, has enjoyed success in the Northern Trust Open recently and is likely to be at the head of the ante-post betting.
The winner receives $1.152 million so there is plenty to play for with some stellar names sure to be well backed in the betting before and during the tournament.

The US Open is one of the highlights of the season and has traditionally been dominated by American players which is well worth keeping in mind in the betting. But Graeme McDowell finally came good in 2010 to become the first European winner since 1970 and his odds are always worth keeping an eye on in this tournament.
The big names of golf are sure to be involved, with Tiger Woods, Retief Goosen and Geoff Ogilvy among previous winners and they are sure to be well up in the betting.
But the lesser lights cannot be ruled out with Lucas Glover and Michael Campbell both winning in recent times, and it should make for a fascinating four days of golf and some great opportunities for betting.....
