Tiger Woods is 30/1 to win the Masters, 8/1 to win his next start

Published

on

Did Tiger Woods’ performance at the Hero World Challenge give you the itch to plunk down some cash on TW this year?

You’re in luck: OnlineGambling.lv has set odds for Tiger Woods’ performance in 2018. More specifically, the site has the numbers on everything from the number of tournaments Woods will win to the number of tournaments the 14-time major champion will withdraw from.

Here are a few of the more interesting lines and over/unders.

Over/under number of PGA Tour wins for Tiger in 2018: 1.5

Woods’ showing at the Hero must have been inspiring for Vegas indeed to set the O/U above one.

Number of top-ten PGA Tour finishes for Tiger in 2018: 3.5

Considering Woods’ has just one top-10 finish in the past two seasons, it looks like Woods’ pain-free performance inspired the bookies that he’ll play a full schedule this season.

Odds Tiger wins each Major in 2018
Masters: 30/1
US Open: 35/1
The Open Championship: 33/1
PGA Championship: 25/1

It’s interesting Woods’ best odds are for the PGA Championship. That said, he’s historically played well at Quail Hollow.

O/U Tiger’s World Golf Ranking at end of 2018: 50.5

Considering Woods’ current ranking is No. 668, this particular book sees Woods notching a number of respectable showings this season.

Odds on Tiger’s performance at his next tournament
Wins: 8/1
Top-ten finish: 3/2
Misses cut: 6/1

Considering the popular expectations that Woods’ next start will be at his personal playground, Torrey Pines, for the Farmers Insurance Open, it’s not altogether shocking to see him at 8/1…especially since the cash will pour in on Woods at any number and books have to protect themselves. It is interesting how similar his odds of missing the cut are to winning. Feast or famine?

    Uh……you do know that the 2018 PGA isn’t at Quail Hollow, right??

    What are the odds of Tiger never winning again? Whatever those odds are I would take that bet.
    I really hope he wins again. He is great for golf,but I just don’t think he has what it takes anymore to compete with the young guns.

    A sucker is born every minute. 30/1 for the masters and 8/1 for his next win are hilarious but that’s why those hotels are so big in Vegas! The only good bet I see is the under in 1.5 wins this year. Look back at what was said after last years Hero….Same thing. Swing looks good and he looks healthy. Bottom line is until he plays 2-3 full field events I don’t think we will know how he is doing.

    Unlike golfers of the past, the one thing that sets Tiger apart from others is perhaps his frame of mind. The knowledge that he KNOWS he can still win and win big.That chunk of confidence is huge. It doesn’t matter that his competition is guys like Spieth or Day or anybody else you can think of. He’s going into this knowing that he has won 79 times…14 majors…NOBODY ELSE even comes close to that. Not even remotely. He’s carrying a very big stick of History. And that means POWER. MIND POWER. Psychological power over the other players. If he wins within the next two or three outings…he will be feared again. If he wins any Majors this year…wow, I can’t imagine what that must do to the minds of the other players. He’s an exciting player to watch for us mere mortals. Relieved that he’s back.

Tiger Woods fires second-round 76, will miss Genesis Open cut

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ trip to Los Angeles is over sooner than he’d hoped. Woods fired a 5-over 76 during the second round of the Genesis Open to miss the presumed cut at Riviera by four strokes (the second round won’t be completed until Saturday morning due to darkness).

Hopes were high Woods would continue to build on a T-23 finish at the Farmers Insurance Open. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case, as the driving woes that plagued him at Torrey Pines followed him to the Riv, despite changing shafts in his TaylorMade M3.

Wayward off the tee, Woods made eight bogeys Friday, unable to grind out a decent score as he did with his opening-round 1-over 72. He was unable to rely on his putter the way did in this first round, three-putting back-to-back holes (No. 11 and 12). A stretch of three straight bogeys sunk Woods’ hopes of hanging around for the weekend.

We won’t have to wait long to see the Big Cat back in action, however, as Woods committed to next week’s Honda Classic at PGA National in Florida. Woods most recently put a peg in the ground at the course in 2014, where he ultimately withdrew due to back spasms.

The 79-time PGA Tour winner hasn’t teed it in back-to-back weeks since 2015, so while fans may not be encouraged by his play, at least he continues to be free from any issues with his surgically repaired back.

Tiger Woods shoots an opening-round 72 (1-over) at the 2018 Genesis Open

Published

on

After hitting just 17 fairways all week at the 2018 Farmers Insurance Open, where he finished T23, Tiger Woods switched driver shafts and added 0.75 degrees of loft in his TaylorMade M3 driver ahead of the 2018 Genesis Open this week. He went from using a Mitsubishi Tensei CK Pro White 70TX shaft, to a Matrix TP6HDe shaft — he used a TP7HDe shaft back in 2015.

So how did the switch work out for him at Riviera CC on Thursday?

Well, he hit driver 9 times during his round of 72 strokes; four went right — one of which got lost in a tree and he had to re-tee — one went left, and four found the fairway. He hit 8-of-14 fairways in total; no Fred Funk, but an improvement. Woods’ bigger issue on Thursday, actually, was that he hit only 7 greens in regulation, leaving himself a few tricky up-and-downs. Despite hitting only 38 percent of greens, Woods managed to make 5 birdies, and he continues displaying prowess on the greens (1.784 Strokes Gained Putting, and 82 feet worth of putts made).

He also showed some flashes of old Tiger with Arnie-esque follow through.

Of course, that means he missed the fairway way right, and he did go onto bogey the hole, but the shot made for some excitement on golf twitter, at least.

According to @RandallMellGC, Tiger described his round in a post-round interview: “I fought hard. I made a few simple, silly mistakes, bad shots here and there, missed on the wrong side, made a few birdies as well. 1-over’s not bad.”

Yea, that’s about right.

Tiger currently sits at T66, and six shots off the leader. Lots of golf to play, but he’ll likely be contending with the cutline come Friday afternoon. How do you think Tiger will finish this week at the 2018 Genesis Open?

Custom Camerons, wedge stampings, a 6-hybrid, and Tiger wearing Tennis shoes?

Published

on

Yesterday, we brought you shots of Thomas Pieters’ iron stamping, Adam Scott’s new (shorter) wand, and more.

Today, we’ve got some more choice shots from the range at Riviera from Tuesday’s practice. Strap in for a sampling from a cornucopia of WITB shots and a helping of Tiger Woods (who we feature in two galleries). We also discussed his new driver shaft yesterday, so if you missed that piece, check it out.

On to the pictures.

First up, Wesley Bryan looks to be gaming an some Anthony Taranto artistry with his 54-degree Mack Daddy 4 wedge. Do work, indeed!

Ted Potter, Jr. won more than a million dollars at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am last week. But as the check hasn’t come yet, he hasn’t been able to buy Goo Gone to take the tape residue off the bottom of his putter.

A custom Cam for Rafa Cabrera Bello.

…and William McGirt.

#GrindGoals (Luke Donald’s 60-degree Mizuno T7)

Vijay Singh looks to have gotten his foot stuck in a bear trap, and yet he’s still practicing!

The most famous putter in golf, and Nike Vapor Advantage tennis shoes for Tiger?

Apparently, all the weight modification available on PXG 0311 irons was insufficient for Charl Schwartzel.

When your name scripting matches your sponsor’s script…

This is not the WITB of a 20-handicapper, rather Camilo Villegas may be the only Tour pro gaming a 6-hybrid.

So much is going on with Camilo Villegas’ irons…

You’ve seen custom stampings, but how about Bubba Watson’s custom shaft and custom shaft graphic?

When you’re the only PGA Tour professional to own a candy store, your wedge imagery reflects that fact.

The Big Cat browsing GolfWRX on mobile, no doubt…

If you’d like to dig deeper, we have two galleries of range photos from the Riv, plus 13 (!) WITB threads. Dig in!
