Tiger Woods’ victory at the 2019 Masters tournament marked yet another milestone in his return to the height of the golf world. Sportsbooks took notice of the spike in popularity with the release of numerous Tiger Woods betting odds for this year’s remaining Majors and his potential career achievements.
With mobile sports betting now widespread in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, there will be a much larger market of Tiger fans with access to his odds since the days of Tiger vs. The Field at the peak of his success in the mid-2000s.
Tiger Woods and the Majors
Tiger’s 15th career Major title – and fifth green jacket – turned the page on the numerous personal issues and, more-notably, back surgeries that have plagued him and tarnished his image since his 2009 infidelity scandal.
His 2001 victory at the Masters completed the honorary “Tiger Slam” coined for his winning of four consecutive Majors not all played in the same calendar year. He’s won each Major at least three times – with a fourth victory at the PGA Championship – and has gone back-to-back as champion at all but the US Open.
Woods has just one more Major win in a playoff (three) as he has victories by double-digit strokes. He has missed the cut or withdrawn from 10 Major tournaments, but has 26 top-10 finishes in addition to his 15 wins, including six runner-ups.
Tiger Woods Betting Odds: 2019 Open Championship
Tiger’s first return to the top of a Major leaderboard came at last year’s Open Championship at Carnoustie where he finished T6. He missed the cut at the US Open earlier in the year and ended T32 at the Masters, after taking two full years off of the Majors.
Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Island will host The Open for the first time since 1951 when the world’s best arrive at Dunluce Links. Tiger has never played the course professionally but spoke highly of it when announced as an upcoming venue in 2014. He has 10 career top 10s at The Open, including victories in 2000, 2005, and 2006.
Tiger Woods Betting Odds: 2020 Masters Tournament
Tiger will head back to Augusta National in 2020 in need of just one more green jacket to tie Jack Nicklaus’ record of six. Woods shares the all-time record with Jordan Spieth for lowest score at minus-18, from his 12-stroke victory at The Masters in 1997.
He’s coming off a one-stroke win over Johnson, Koepka, and Xander Schauffele in 2019, and a normal tournament schedule should bring out record viewership ratings as he tries to go back-to-back for the second time at the Masters.
