Fresh off a win against the over-50 crowd, Phil Mickelson is a betting favorite this week as he returns to life on the PGA Tour.

Mickelson won his Champions Tour debut two weeks ago in Missouri, and this week he’ll headline the field for the season-opening Safeway Open in Napa. While he missed the cut last year at Silverado Resort, he finished T-17 or better in each of his three prior trips. With few top names teeing it up in the first event of the 2020-21 season, oddsmakers at PointsBet Sportsbook have listed Mickelson as an 18/1 favorite to win his first PGA Tour event in nearly two years.

Former Players champ Si Woo Kim is next at 20/1, with Open winners Shane Lowry (25/1) and Jordan Spieth (28/1) close behind. Here’s a look at some of the other notable odds for this week’s event in wine country:
