Before we set our eyes on the prize waiting at the President’s Cup, there’s still the Hero World Challenge down at the road, waiting to be noticed. It isn’t as popular, maybe because it’s not part of the PGA Tour? Who knows. Nevertheless, it’s an event that shouldn’t be overlooked, especially with the insane amount of Hero World Challenge betting odds available across multiple sportsbooks.

And besides, it’s a star-studded event with some of the most revered golf players in the world taking part in this invitation-only tournament. Only the best of the best will make the cut and fill the 18 spots for the event, so you wouldn’t want to miss it.

Wonder why it’s *that* exclusive? Aside from the fact the Tiger Woods hosts this event, which already says a lot, the event will be joined by popular golf top-ranks across the globe. Here are the favorites to win this year’s edition.

Top Players to Watch in Hero World Challenge 2019

Rickie Fowler

Carrying the American flag, Rickie Fowler is among the top players to win the Hero World Challenge. Even with his 2-month hiatus from August’s major tournament, where he made it to the Top 20 at the Tour Championship, he’s still poised to enter the challenge with a strong finish. After taking a break after his marriage and acquiring an intestinal bacterial infection, punters still see him fit to represent the best of the US.

Xander Schauffele

Also from the American team, Xander Schauffele has been consistent all throughout his career, and he’s got pretty good numbers in Hero World Challenge betting odds everywhere. Schauffele is coming into the challenge at rank 9 in the Official Golf World Rankings (OWGR). He finished at 8th spot in last year’s challenge, and after his impressive performances following at the Zozo Championship at the WGC-HSBC Champions, he has a great chance of finishing at the top spot this year.

Jon Rahm

Without a doubt, last year’s champion receives the best Hero World Challenge betting odds IMO. I men, winning Tiger Woods’ invitation-only tournament is one thing, but to do it the first time? That’s on another level. But even before that, Rahm was already getting some attention after being triumphant in the European Tour and eventually earning a spot in the race to Dubai. The Spanish up-and-coming golfer will definitely give the Americans a run for their money.

Starting this Wednesday and ending on Saturday, the 3-day Hero World Challenge with a total purse of $3.5 million will surely give us a taste of what’s to come in the President’s Cup.
