Another week, another relocated PGA Tour event with a limited field.
After Jason Kokrak captured the CJ Cup, which shifted from South Korea to Las Vegas because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Tour is heading to the West Coast for this week's Zozo Championship. Site of Tiger Woods' record-tying 82nd career win a year ago in Japan, the tournament's second edition will head to one of Woods' favorite haunts: Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where Woods won the Hero World Challenge five times from 2001-2011.
While Woods has plenty of history at this week's venue, oddsmakers at PointsBet Sportsbook aren't exactly high on a successful title defense as he makes what is expected to be his only start between the U.S. Open and the Masters. He's listed at +3400, behind 13 other players in the 78-man field. Topping the list at +1000 are two familiar names: world No. 2 Jon Rahm and Xander Schauffele, who enters off a runner-up finish at Shadow Creek.
One name missing from the opening odds sheet is world No. 1 Dustin Johnson. Johnson is still technically in the field furnished by the Tour as of Monday morning, but he withdrew from the CJ Cup after testing positive for COVID-19 on Oct. 13. Similar recent test results have seen players like Scottie Scheffler and Tony Finau miss at least two weeks of action, and should Johnson withdraw he'll be replaced by first alternate Matt Kuchar in the field at Sherwood.
Here's a look at some of the notable odds as the Tour wraps up a three-week stint out west:
+2000: Patrick Reed
+2200: Collin Morikawa
+3000: Daniel Berger
+3500: Tommy Fleetwood
+6000: Phil Mickelson
