PGA Tour Golf Betting Odds: If you're looking for the best advice for Formula One odds, you've certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook, we're previewing the WGC-HSBC Champions, a golf tournament held from October 28th through November 3rd, 2013, at Mission Hills Golf Club in Shenzhen, China, featuring Ian Poulter, Martin Kaymer, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia.
Ian Poulter had a sizzling final round a year ago to capture the WGC-HSBC Champions. He will aim for a repeat while many other top golfers hope to knock him off when the tournament is held from October 28th through November 3rd, 2013, at Mission Hills Golf Club in Shenzhen, China in golf odds.
Ian Poulter shot a final-round 7-under 65 to zoom past several competitors and capture the 2012 event with a score of 21-under 268, winning by two strokes over Jason Dufner, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els and Scott Piercy. The tie for second place continued a string of impressive performances for Mickelson at the WGC-HSBC Champions. He has a pair of past titles at this tournament, winning it originally in 2007 by outlasting Ross Fisher and Lee Westwood. He then captured his second career title here by shooting a 17-under 271 to win the 2009 tournament, nipping second place Els by one stroke. Els has yet to win this event but has been close multiple times and should be seen as a legitimate threat if he participates in 2013.
The course record at the WGC-HSBC Champions 268, which was originally totaled by David Howell in 2005 and subsequently matched by Martin Kaymer (2011) and Poulter last year. Poulter's 21-under total is the best score since this tournament was created in 2005. Sergio Garcia is another big name who has won this event, as he defeated Oliver Wilson in a playoff in 2008. The stars of golf have found good success here in the past and Poulter, Mickelson and the others will hope for a similar performance this time out in golf odds.

How to bet on HSBC Champions
The odds of a golfer to win the HSBC Champions 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 HSBC Champions, while the bettor wagering on Jeff Overton stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in European Golf 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 HSBC Champions 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 European Golf golf wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of European golf betting without to much trouble.
2013 WGC HSBC Champions Winner - Late eagle propels DJ to eighth career win
Dustin Johnson ended the day exactly where he started (three clear of his next closest competitor), but it was anything but a lazy Sunday.
Johnson squandered his 54-hole lead early on Sunday in Shanghai with a bogey on his opening hole to Ian Poulter's two birdies to start, but a late chip-in eagle at the 16th and a birdie at the 17th propelled him back into the lead.
It was a three-man race from the onslaught, where playing partners DJ, Poulter and Graeme McDowell all played beautifully and exchanged the lead numerous times, but it was Johnson with the edge in the end.
2012 World Golf Championship HSBC Champions Winner - Poulter rallies to win HSBC Champions in China
Ian Poulter showed he can be a star even when playing only for himself.
One month after leading an improbable European rally in the Ryder Cup, Poulter won for the first time this year. He closed with a 7-under 65 Sunday to come from four shots behind and win the HSBC Champions for his second career World Golf Championships title.
It won't overshadow what he did at Medinah in the Ryder Cup — five straight birdies to pick up a crucial point in fourballs and winning his singles match to complete a 4-0 week. Even so, it was important to the Englishman that the year not pass without a victory of his own.
Phil Mickelson (68), Jason Dufner (64), Scott Piercy (65) and Ernie Els (67) tied for second. Lee Westwood and Louis Oosthuizen shared the 54-hole lead, but each shot a 72 in the final round to tie for sixth.
Poulter won for the first time since the World Match Play Championship in Spain in 2011. His other WGC title came in 2010 in Arizona at the Match Play Championship. Turns out he can also get it done in stroke play.
On a day when five players had at least a share of the lead at some point — and several others were close — it was the charismatic Poulter who was the steadiest. Starting the day four shots behind, he surged into the lead with four birdies on the front nine and two more after making the turn.
2011 World Golf Championship HSBC Champions Winner - German Martin Kaymer wins WGC-HSBC Champions
The WGC-HSBC Champions hardly needed any more fireworks after Martin Kaymer had come from six behind Fredrik Jacobson with 12 to play to win what was his first WGC event. But off they went just the same, bang, bang, bang into the evening sky – precisely like the winner's nine birdies.
Though the German had made the most ordinary of starts – six pars in a row – he turned in 34 before coming home in 29 for his 20 under par tally. He won by three from Jacobson, by four from Graeme McDowell and by five from the trio of Paul Casey, Charl Schwartzel and Rory McIlroy.
Kaymer is at once the most unassuming and honest of men. He could not lie; he had played "brilliantly" over the day. “The way I have been practising and playing, I deserved to win,” he said. "From the moment I sunk a bunker shot at the seventh, I didn’t miss a lot of golf shots."
2010 WGC-HSBC Champions Results
Francesco Molinari held off top-ranked Lee Westwood all weekend and did so again on Sunday to win the WGC-HSBC Champions event by one stroke.
Molinari shot a 65 on Friday to a 66 from Westwood and the two shot identical rounds the rest of the way for Molinari to win at 19-under par for the tournament. Westwood finished at -18, which put him in second by nine strokes.
Richie Ramsay and Luke Donald ended up tied for third at -9 while Rory McIlroy was in fifth at -8. Tiger Woods, the pre-event favorite, finished tied for sixth at -7 overall after shooting a 4-under 68 on Sunday.
