Tiger Woods had hoped to play once each month on the PGA TOUR this season, but in his most recent start at The Genesis Invitational in Los Angeles, he was forced to withdraw with flu-like symptoms. The PGA TOUR season now moves east for the upcoming Florida Swing, fans are wondering if Woods will play again before The Masters.

Below are his best available odds across betting sites for those curious about Tiger’s golf futures.

Tiger’s withdrawal did seem like it could have been the story of the weekend before Hideki Matsuyama’s Sunday heroics to win the Genesis. Fortunately for fans of his, his withdrawal was illness and not a flare-up of any of his more chronic concerns.

Tiger will likely play next at THE PLAYERS. With how he drove the ball at the Genesis, gaining about half a stroke on the field, Woods might be able to put himself in good position. A win is incredibly unlikely at this stage of his career, but his first 2024 start probably wasn’t as bad for Woods’ legion of fans as a WD typically suggests.

Woods probably would need some luck to make the cut at TPC Sawgrass. That said, avoiding water hazards could be enough to give him a chance.

At The Masters (), where more than half the field makes the cut and at least a dozen slots in the tournament are reserved for senior past champions who have little chance of making it, Tiger has a real chance be able to play the weekend.

What’s unclear is whether Woods saying he plans to play once a month on the PGA TOUR this season was meant to mean PGA TOUR events, or that included major championships, which are not run by the PGA TOUR. Playing once each month could mean we only see Woods at THE PLAYERS in March, The Masters in April, PGA Championship in May, U.S. Open in June, and The Open Championship in July, before seeing if he’ll play any events on TOUR after those five signature events on the golf calendar.
