2012 Transitions Championship Odds & Predictions

The PGA Tour stops in this week at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Florida, Thursday March 18th – Sunday March 21st. The venue’s unique Copperhead course is a popular stop in the Sunshine State with its elevated tee shots and undulating fairways. Gary Woodland won the Transitions last year and is listed at 50/1 odds to repeat. PGA Tour oddsmakers have listed Luke Donald as 10/1 favorite to win the 2012 Transitions Championship. Let’s take a look at who can steal a win at the 2012 Transitions Championship. Be sure to check the 2012 Transitions Championship Odds and make your predictions before the first shot is hit.

Luke Donald (10/1) finished inside the top 20 in 16 of his last 18 TOUR events in 2011’s third-place FedExCup campaign, and hadn’t cracked the top 30 in two starts this season entering last week. That changed when Donald posted back-to-back-to-back sub-70 rounds at TPC Blue Monster to close out a T6 finish and move from No. 166 to No. 85 in the latest FedExCup standings — an 81-spot improvement. Donald didn’t play here last year and indeed has only played twice at Innisbrook in 2010 and 2003.  His last visit saw him tie for sixth.

Charles Schwartzel (14/1) has two top fives in his last two events and yet couldn’t buy a put last weekend at Doral.  A word of warning though on Schwartzel, he may the form horse but he’s never even been to the track before!

Nick Watney (22-1). With top-13 finishes in each of the past three years here, it’s safe to say Watney is a fan of the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort.

Webb Simpson (18/1) starts his 100th Tour event this week and will be looking to add to his two wins last year at The Wyndham and Deutsche Bank. Third in Hawaii back in January and a top 10 in Phoenix, Simpson has yet to fire for all four days at a tournament.  Mixed the sublime with the ridiculous last week at Doral where a pair of 66’s were sandwiched in between a 75 and 77.  Did enough though to impress me though, even if paired with sideshow Woods in the final round.

John Senden (40/1) is arguably one of the the players of the tournament at last weeks WGC Cadillac.  Followed a first round 76 with 67, 68 and a final round 65 to tie for sixth.  That’s the second top 10 of the season for the big Aussie, third if you count the matchplay. Tied for second here twice in 2007 and 2008 and tied 15th last season.  Real chances of a top five.
