Tiger Woods’s Odds to Win Masters Greatly Improve Following Hero World Challenge

December 5, 2016

The chances of Tiger Woods winning the 2016 Masters didn’t actually change this weekend, but the betting odds of him grabbing his fifth green jacket certainly improved.

According to golfodds.com, Woods’s odds improved to 20-1 after his 15th-place finish at the Hero, up from 40-1 from before the event started. That’s sixth best among players expected to compete at the annual major championship. Woods opened his tournament with a first-round 73 Thursday and shot a bogey-free second round of 65.
