CIMB Classic - Golf tournament odds - Year is 2018 - Bet on it! All of the major tournaments are behind us and the season has essentially come to a close, but that doesn't mean that the golfing action is going to be ending anytime soon.

This upcoming weekend, for instance, there are two major golf tournaments - the British Masters and the CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur.

The tournament, which is hosted at the West Course at the TPC Kuala Lumpur, has a total prize pool of $7,000,000, which certainly makes it worth the while of players such as Justin Thomas, who will be participating in the event.

Justin Thomas has won this tournament a total of two times, with his most recent victory coming in 2016. Given the success that he has enjoyed in this tournament, there should be no surprise that Thomas is returning to try to claim his third title.

The course is a Par 72 and is 7,005 yards in length. As mentioned, the prize pool is 7 million USD.
