Tiger Woods favored to win Chevron World Challenge

Odds makers have made Tiger Woods the favorite to win this week's Chevron World Challenge, an event Woods hosts and has won four times.

Played at the Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California, the event is an elite 18 player field featuring some of the youngest and biggest talents in the game.

Names like Webb Simpson, Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Bill Haas and Keegan Bradley.

Woods has been set by many odds makers to be the 11/4 favorite to win the event. Though he has won this event four times in the past as mentioned above.

The world's former No. 1 player is still looking for his first win since 2009 -- And though he did show promise with his play in both the Australian Open and Presidents Cup, there are still many questions surrounding his game.

If any event is to be his first win in almost two years, this week could be the perfect setting for that to happen.

It's not a full field event with only 18 players.

Simple math proves that it could be easier to win at the Chevron than anywhere else right now for Woods.

However, there are some high power big game players in this field that he will have to contend with.

Will this be the week that Woods finally stands in that winner's circle?
