Over 47% of bets on The Masters since Thursday have been for 14-time major winner
Oddschecker punters believe they saw enough in Tiger’s latest comeback to have enough confidence to back him to win the first major of the season at Augusta in April. Despite finishing ninth of the 18-strong field, he shot a four under final round of 68 to make a more than satisfactory return to competitive action.
Throughout the four days Tiger showed he still has the length off the tee to compete and holed plenty of putts throughout to show he still has the game to challenge. In total, Woods has accounted for 47.54% of bets since Thursday morning, well clear of Jason Day who is second on 26.64%.
Bookies are taking no chances on the American with the 50/1 available before last weekend just 18/1 with one firm (best price 25/1).
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: "Woods exceeded all expectations in his return to competitive action, even briefly leading during the second round. He may have faded back into the pack, but Tiger looked well and swinging without pain. Nobody knows Augusta better, and Tiger will have another fifth green jacket firmly in his sights."
