Buick Open Tournament.
August 3- August 6 2006.
Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club.
Grand Blanc, Mich.

This tournament takes place at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc, Mich., with a purse of $4.8 million. Last year, Vijay Singh finished at 24-under-par 264 to edge Tiger Woods, who finished at 20 under. It was Singh's second consecutive Buick Open title and also made him the event's first three-time winner. The odds on this tournament will depend heavily on whether Woods plays the event. He generally does, having entered for four straight years and seven of the past eight. Woods would be the sportsbook favorite, but Singh's recent success here make him a viable wager.
