Online Golf Betting: The AT&T National hosted by Tiger Woods and benefiting the Tiger Woods Foundation returns for its seventh year, with Tiger looking to repeat as champion. The superstar was not the most gracious of hosts a year ago, shooting an 8-under to beat the field by two strokes. Wood’s 8-under was the worst score by a champion in the history of the tournament, though considering he also holds a tie for the tournament record at -13, there is hardly an asterisk next to his name for 2012. Woods is as good a choice as any in this golf wagering online, but the live lines at BookMaker could convince you otherwise.
Woods looks to be back on form since his temporary collapse, and considering how comfortable he is with this course and tournament, I would not be surprised to see him atop the leaderboard on Sunday once again.
The AT&T National, traditionally played at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland, moved to the Aronimink Golf Club for two years while the Congressional underwent reconfiguration for the 2011 US Open. Those two years saw Nick Watney and Justin Rose claim the tournament crown, but on its return to Congressional, Woods was victorious again. He has, then, won back-to-back AT&T Nationals when the tournament is played at its rightful course.
It is no surprise that Tiger will come into his own tournament as the favorite. It is up to you whether you want to stick with him or go for an underdog listed at BookMaker’s live lines. After placing your golf wagering online, you can watch your wager unfold live on the Golf Channel and CBS Sports when all the action kicks off on Thursday, June 27 and proceeds through Sunday, June 30.
How to bet on AT&T National
The odds of a golfer to win the AT&T National will generally look something like:
- Tiger Woods + 150
- Phil Mickelson + 250
- Steve Stricker + 300
- Jeff Overton + 700
- Ernie Els + 700
- Field + 600
These betting odds will be lower when betting on a golfer to finish in the top three, as the sportsbook must pay off three different winning bets.
A player would have to bet $10 to win $150 that Tiger Woods will win the AT&T National, while the bettor wagering on Jeff Overton stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in PGA golf is head-to-head finish between two players. With this bet, a player doesn't really care what place the golfer finishes in, as long as the golfer wagered on finishes higher than the other golfer.
A head-to-head betting line for the AT&T National will look something like:
- Tiger Woods - 190 Steve Stricker + 150
In this bet, players wagering on Woods to finish higher than Stricker will be asked to risk $19 to win $10, while bettors believing that Stricker will finish higher than Woods will bet $10 to win $15.
Those familiar with sports betting will have no trouble making the transition to PGA golf wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of PGA golf betting without to much trouble.
2013 AT&T National Winner - Haas among distinguished company with AT&T win
Bill Haas won the AT&T National on Sunday and joined some distinguished company.
Haas pulled away from a crowd of contenders with three straight birdies, two key pars and one good hop out of the rough. It led to a 5-under 66 on a muggy day at Congressional and a three-shot win over Roberto Castro.
As many as six players had a share of the lead at some point until Haas rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt on No. 8. Worried about a splotch of mud on his ball, he hit his approach to just inside 12 feet for birdie on the par-5 ninth, and then hit a 5-iron to 10 feet for another birdie on the 10th.
Haas led by at least two shots the entire back nine, though he never allowed himself to think about winning until he stood over a 3-foot par putt on the 18th hole and realized he had three putts to win.
2012 AT&T National Winner - Tiger Woods seals win at AT&T National
Congressional reopened its gates Sunday to thousands of spectators who got what they expected in the AT&T National — another win by Tiger Woods. Only this win didn’t follow a typical script.
Caught in a tense duel with Bo Van Pelt on another sweltering day, it looked as though Woods blinked first until Van Pelt matched him with mistakes of his own. Woods closed with a 2-under 69 and won by two shots when Van Pelt finished with his third straight bogey and had to settle for a 71.
Woods won for the third time this year, the most of anyone on the PGA Tour, and it was the 74th win of his career. That moved him past Jack Nicklaus into second place on the tour list, eight short of Sam Snead.
Woods, who finished at 8-under 276, moved to the top of the PGA Tour money list and the FedEx Cup standings for the first time since September 2009.
He effectively clinched the win with a 9-iron down the hill toward the peninsula green on the 18th, a shot so pure that Woods started walking and twirled the club moments after he made contact.
2011 AT&T National Winner - Watney flawless to win by 2 shots at Aronimink
The two highest ranked players in the World Rankings to show up at Aronimink Golf Club this week wound up battling it out for the 2011 AT&T National crown Sunday.
Even after K.J. Choi finally pulled even with four holes to play, frontrunner Nick Watney never flinched, and never gave Choi — or any of his pursuers, for that matter — even a slight opening.
One day after establishing the course record in spectacular fashion, Watney followed up with a scintillating, bogey-free 4-under-par 66 to edge Choi by two strokes and capture his second PGA Tour win of the season and fourth of his career.
His winning score of 13-under 267 was two strokes better than Justin Rose’s score a year ago.
Justin Rose lifted his profile like a bottle rocket shooting skyward, winning the AT&T National for his second title in three events.
"Playing under this sort of pressure when you're playing well is like exciting," Rose said. "It's butterflies and it's a buzz."
It was the 29-year-old Englishman’s second victory in America in the space of four weeks and he is playing the best golf in the world right now.
