Sky Bet

As it has done since 2000, Sherwood Country Club in California stages the World Challenge - a non-official event which has attracted no less than 13 of this year's Ryder Cup participants (11 US, 2 Euro).

Tournament host Tiger Woods is the most successful player in the competition's history with five victories to his name while in 10 previous starts, Woods has only once finished lower than second.

The full field in Sky Bet betting order is: 11/4 Tiger Woods, 12/1 Jason Dufner, 14/1 Dustin Johnson, Ian Poulter, Bo Van Pelt, Jim Furyk, 16/1 Zach Johnson, Bubba Watson, Brandt Snedeker, 18/1 Matt Kuchar, Webb Simpson, 20/1 Nick Watney, Hunter Mahan, Keegan Bradley, 25/1 Jason Day, Graeme McDowell, 33/1 Steve Stricker, Rickie Fowler.

In recent years, the tournament has either capped a brilliant season or been a good indicator for success in the following campaign.

2011: Tiger Woods' win here (his first anywhere since 2009) sparked a four-win season on the 2012 US Tour.

2010: Graeme McDowell caps an amazing year (US Open, joint Euro Tour Player of the Year) by beating Tiger.

2009: Jim Furyk and went on to win the 2010 Fedex Cup; runner-up Graeme McDowell went on to win the 2010 US Open.

2008: Fresh from winning the FedEx Cup, Vijay Singh adds another win here.
