Hero World Challenge: Rahm to ‘continue winning spell’ at exclusive event?

Published

on

The Hero World Challenge returns to The Bahamas once again this year, with tournament host Tiger Woods and defending champion Jon Rahm among those who will be taking part in the end-of-the-year PGA Tour event.

The exclusive occasion at Albany starts on Wednesday, with several of the world’s top golfers ready for action. It’s the fifth consecutive year that the competition will be held in The Bahamas. And this year it will end one day earlier in order to help those participating in the Presidents Cup in Australia the following week.

Rahm is undoubtedly the favourite heading into the event, having won it last year as well as clinching the Race to Dubai last month.

The Spaniard is currently 9/2 to win yet another tournament to add to his fantastic year so far.

However, he will certainly be up against it, with the likes of Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose

keen to get back to winning ways. The US star is currently 12/1 to win, with the Briton available at 16/1.

As always, there is a strong American contingent taking part, and both Justin Thomas and Patrick Cantlay are among those leading the line for the US in terms of potential success.

Thomas is currently 7/1 to clinch the Hero trophy, with Cantlay available at 9/1. Host Woods is 10/1. Xander Schauffele is also 10/1 to claim the exclusive prize.

Webb Simpson is currently 12/1 to finish in top spot. Ricky Fowler and Bryson DeChambeau are currently 14/1 and 16/1 respectively.

Both Tony Finau and Patrick Reed are 22/1 to claim first place, while Matt Kuchar and Henrik Stenson find themselves outsiders at 30/1.

2019 US Open champion Gary Woodland can be backed at 18/1 to win in The Bahamas.

His fellow American Kevin Kisner is currently 35/1.

Past champions Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson will also be in attendance. The former can be backed at 14/1, with the latter available at 40/1.

This luxurious, exciting event not only features golfing of the very highest standard, but also includes the Hero Shot warm up meeting at Baha Mar. There is also an exclusive beach party, poker night and after party.

But despite all the off-field entertainment, it will undoubtedly be the on-field competition between some of the world’s best in the sport that will take centre stage when the action gets underway on Wednesday.

There is also a serious element to the tournament. Proceeds from the Hero World Challenge will benefit the TGR Foundation and ONE Bahamas Fund. And this will help the local community rebuild their lives after the devastation of Hurricane Dorian.
