The Hyundai Tournament of Champions is the first event of the PGA Tour season and has been opening the tour since 1953. It involves only players who have won a tournament during the previous season which ensures it is always a highly competitive field with some great betting opportunities throughout.
It is played on the island of Mauwi in Hawaii as players take to the Plantation Course on the Kapalua Resort and compete for the $5.6 million prize fund. The winner receives a cool $1.12 million and there have been plenty of big names who have upset the odds to win in the past. They include the likes of Geoff Ogilvy, who has a US Open win to his name and clearly enjoys the course in Hawaii and is worth following in the betting, and fellow Australian Stuart Appleby. While Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will always be in and around the top of the ante-post betting. Ernie Els has the remarkable best score in the tournament at 31 under in 2003 and that will take some beating.
In 2011 Jonathan Byrd upset the ante-post odds to win the Hyundai Tournament of Champions as he defeat Robert Garrigus in a play-off. Geoff Ogilvy had headed the betting in his seach for a third consecutive Champions win but fell short in his efforts to match compatriot Stuart Appleby's feat from 2004 to 2006.
