Henrik Stenson To Overshadow The Return of Tiger Woods At The Hero World Challenge

Tiger Woods makes his long awaited return to the golf course this week as he tees up at the Hero World Challenge and he is part of an eighteen-strong field for this invitational event at The Albany in the Bahamas...

Woods And The Favourites

Woods will make his first start since January and only his 20th appearance on the PGA Tour (The Hero World Challenge is an unofficial money event) since 2013, with bookmakers going 40/1 about the fourteen-time major winner.

It is a big ask for Woods to secure victory after so long out and we prefer to look elsewhere for some value at a tournament that has previously been played at Sherwood Country Club and Isleworth Golf and Country Club before settling on its current home of Albany in 2015.

The links-style course was designed by Ernie Els and stretches out over 7,400 yards, with US PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas currently the 11/2 favourite (Bet Victor) on what will be his debut here.

This is Thomas's first start in six weeks so we are happy to swerve him at the prices, while Jordan Spieth's 8th place finish in Australia last week and his form at Albany is no more than solid (4th and 6th) so we'll leave the 13/2 about him alone too.

Dustin Johnson (6/1) tied 3rd here last year but the world number one is still reeling from his infamous collapse in China, while defending champion Hideki Matsuyama (12/1) hasn't quite been hitting the heights he was this time twelve months ago.

Where Is The Value?

Rickie Fowler tends to enjoy playing at Albany after finishing 3rd in 2015 and 2016, and he was runner-up to Patton Kizzire at the OHL Classic in Mayakoba recently, albeit he perhaps doesn't win often enough to warrant backing at 9/1.

Instead, we prefer to back Henrik Stenson at twice the price as his length and precision make him a perfect fit for this course. The 2016 Open winner was a late addition to this week's line-up after Jason Day and Marc Leishman withdrew, and he has previous at Albany as he finished runner-up to Matsuyama last year.

Stenson has quietly gone about his business during the second half of this year, winning the Wyndham Championship and finishing tied 2nd at the WGC HSBC Champions, and he is nicely priced at 18/1, assuming he is fully fit following a few weeks rest due to a rib injury.
Tip #1: Henrik Stenson (each way) @ 18/1 with Betfred.

Finally, Patrick Reed tends to enjoy playing Albany as he was runner-up in 2015 before finishing in the top-ten last year and the 27-year-old arrives with some very consistent form under his belt. The US PGA Championship runner-up has racked up seven top-twenty finishes from his past eleven outings worldwide, including a very solid tie for 10th in Dubai most recently.
Tip #2: Patrick Reed (each way) @ 20/1 with BetVictor.com.
