American Ryder Cup sensation Rickie Fowler is looking for his first PGA title at the latest Tour venue when CordeValle Resort in California hosts the Open this week. Online betting sites are offering free bets to new customers signing up ahead of the Open being held at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, California from 14 – 17 October. With the absence of the world’s top ten players, bookmakers believe Fowler has the ideal opportunity to register his first PGA Tour win having finished runner up twice this season with another five top ten finishes to his credit. The Ryder Cup rookie’s inclusion in the USA team caused some controversy but the 21-year-old Californian justified Corey Pavin’s pick with his contribution at Celtic Manor. He showed his nerve when partnering Jim Furyk in the halved match against Europe’s top pairing Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer, then on the final day fought back from four down to square his singles match with Edoardo Molinari. Online bookmaker Extrabet is offering odds of 15/1 for Fowler to make his debut win. He tees off from the tenth at 3.40pm with Troy Merritt and Tim Petrovic where there will be added interest in the group at when they reach the 17th. Fowler and Merritt are tied in the lead for the Kodak Challenge and an eagle for either player could lead to a $1million bonus. William Hill bet evens Fowler in the three ball betting with Sporting Bet offering odds of 9/4 Petrovic and Totesport bet 3/1 Merritt. Troy Matteson returns to defend his title and partners Bo Van Pelt and Justin Leonard at 3.50pm from the tenth tee. Cameron Beckman won the event in 2008 and he tees off with Stuart Appleby and Ben Curtis who is one of ten major champions on the field.
