Besides the name change from the Wachovia Championship, the biggest news surrounding this event is the fact that Tiger Woods will once again be in action.

Woods won this even back in 2007, but was unable to play because of his knee problems.

With Woods not in the picture it opened the door for Anthony Kim, who took home the trophy in 2008, and will look to make his first title defense on the PGA Tour this weekend.

The field is loaded this weekend so it should be a fun and exciting weekend of golf.

What makes this tournament so fun to watch, is the difficult finish it imposes on golfers, as 16,17, and 18 are normally always ranked among the toughest holes on the PGA tour.

With the tournament set to get underway Thursday April 30 and finish up this Sunday May 3, here is a look at the 3 golfers who I think have a very good shot at winning this weekend. Geoff Ogilvy +1500 to win at This will be the 6th time Ogilvy has teed it up at Quail Hollow Golf Club, and he hopes it will be the 6th straight time he finishes in the top 25.

The one problem with that is, Ogilvy has yet to finish in the top 10, which gives some concern on making him my pick to win this weekend.

Ogilvy remains the 2009 FedEx Cup and Money List leader, as he already cashed in wins at the Mercedes-Benz Championship and the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Ogilvy finished 15th at the Masters, but really played solid all weekend, including a 69 to finish things up on Sunday.

This will be the first start for Ogilvy since the Masters, so he has had plenty of time to get refocused and ready to go.

The reason I like Oglivy so much, is the way this guy is putting the ball this season, as he continues to lead the tour in putting average.

Forget the no top 10 finishes over the last 5 years, and put your money on one of the fastest rising stars of the game today. Jim Furyk +2000 to win at Furyk knows what it takes to win here at Quail Hollow, as he took the trophy home just a few years back in 2006.

Furyk has also finished in the top 10 here 2 other times in his 5 career starts here, including a 7th place finish a year ago.

Furyk hasn't had the best start to the 2009 season, as his best finishes are a 3rd place finish at the WGC-CA Championship and a 10th place finish at the Masters.

Furyk place the week after the Masers at the Verizon Heritage, and really struggled to get it going, missing the cut for the 2nd time this season.

Furyk is another great putter, as he comes in ranked 22nd on the Tour this season, and I feel like his game is ready for a big showing this weekend. Rory Sabbatini +3000 to win at Sabbatini is quietly having a pretty good start to the 2009 season, as he has only missed the cut once, and has finished 20th or better in 6 of his 9 starts this season, including a tie for 2nd last week at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Sabbatini finished 20th at the Masters and then went on to finish 8th the following week at the Verizon Heritage, before his runner up finish last week, so if the trend keeps going, this guy is primed to grab his first PGA Tour win since 2007.

While Sabbatini doesn't have a great track record here at Quail Hollow, he did finish tied for 3rd here back in 2007, so he knows he can play good enough to win on this course.

I always like to give everyone a great value pick for the weekend, and I feel like Sabbatini is the absolute best value on the board. For those of you looking for some more PGA betting help, check out our expert golf picks and keep up to date with the latest golf odds at Betfirms.No comments yet, but your thoughts are welcome!Subscribe to the BetFirms RSS Feed Comments Got something to say?Name (required)Email Address (required)WebsiteSpeak your mind Notify me of followup comments via e-mailComment moderation is enabled.
