Now officially a winner again on the PGA Tour, Tiger Woods has become a popular bet for folks thinking about next year’s Masters.
The trip down Magnolia Lane is still seven months away, but Woods’ breakthrough victory at the Tour Championship has led bettors to flock to the window to lay down cash on the four-time champ to add green jacket No. 5 next spring at age 43.
Woods was listed at 12/1 at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook when odds opened after the PGA Championship, behind only 2015 champ Jordan Spieth. That’s where he remained for the subsequent six weeks, but after a stirring performance at East Lake Golf Club he’s now listed as the 9/1 betting favorite for the first major of 2019.
Here’s a look at the latest odds via the Westgate, as many of the top contenders head to Paris for the Ryder Cup:
9/1: Tiger Woods
10/1: Jordan Spieth
12/1: Dustin Johnson
14/1: Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas
16/1: Justin Rose, Brooks Koepka, Rickie Fowler
18/1: Jon Rahm
20/1: Jason Day
25/1: Bubba Watson
30/1: Patrick Reed, Tommy Fleetwood, Francesco Molinari, Paul Casey, Hideki Matsuyama, Paul Casey, Tony Finau
