Tiger Woods’ Masters Odd Already on the Rise
Funny what a 15th place finish can do for a guy.
Well, not just any guy. A 14-time Major winner and arguably the first or second-greatest player of all time.
After opening at 55-to-1 in Las Vegas, Woods has dropped as low as 16-to-1 to win The Masters five months from now.
Woods won the Masters four times between 1997 and 2005. His four green jackets are the second-most all-time, tied with Arnold Palmer and two behind Jack Nicklaus, who won six between 1963 and 1986.
Jason Day, the world No. 1, and 2015 Masters winner Jordan Spieth are currently each 8-to-1 to win the 2017 edition, followed by Rory McIlroy at 9 to 1.
If Woods were to take the title, it would be 12 years after his last victory at Augusta. Only two players have had a stretch of more than 11 years between green jackets: Nicklaus, who won in 1986 at at age 46 after taking his first title in 1963, and Gary Player, who won his first in 1961 and his last in 1978.
