  • Updated odds for the 2020 Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, list Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas as the favorites in an elite field that includes Tiger Woods.
  • Thomas lost in a playoff to Collin Morikawa on the same course last week, while several other of the field's best players took the week off.
  • See full odds for the Memorial below.

The biggest question on every golf bettor’s mind going to bed on Sunday night was, “Where would Tiger Woods open?”

The answer is +2500 (also written as 25-1, $10 bet wins $250).

Playing in his first tournament since the hiatus and in a strong field, Woods has the same odds as Hideki Matsuyama and the two of them are sandwiched in between Viktor Hovland (+2200) and Brooks Koepka (+2800).

You can expect Tiger, who was in the 16-1 range in his last start at The Genesis Invitational, to generate a ton of action at that number. Woods is almost always among the most popular bets whenever he plays and a 25-to-1 payout on the GOAT may be too hard for casual bettors to pass up.

Woods will no doubt be the story of the week, but there are plenty of other intriguing numbers on the board.

Last week’s winner, Collin Morikawa, has the seventh-lowest odds on the board at +2000. Morikawa, who famously has more wins than missed cuts in his young PGA TOUR career, was 33-1 heading into the Workday Charity Open which was held right here at Muirfield Village.

I guess it’s about time we get to the tournament favorite. That honor belongs to Justin Thomas for the second week in a row. Thomas, who lost to Morikawa in a three-hole playoff at the Workday, opened at +900 and is the only golfer listed with single-digit odds.

Thomas is just ahead of Bryson DeChambeau, who took last week off after his win at The Rocket Mortgage as a +650 favorite. In a stronger field that includes plenty of players who just played this course last week, DeChambeau has been knocked down to +1000. Don’t be surprised if Bryson ends up as the betting favorite at most sportsbooks by the time we tee off on Thursday.

Rory McIlroy checks in next at +1200. Prior to taking the last two weeks off, Rory finished T11 at The Travelers, which was his best performance since play resumed. McIlroy slots in right ahead of Patrick Cantlay (+1600), who is coming off a T7 at the Workday.

Another player who won in his last start, Dustin Johnson, opened at +1800 along with Jon Rahm. Johnson was listed in the 40-1 range for the Charles Schwab and Heritage, so it’s clear that oddsmakers believe in his return-to-form.

Considering the strength of this field you knew there would be some eye-popping numbers in the mid-tier.

Justin Rose (+5500) was very popular in last week’s event due to his strong course history but he burned his backers by missing the cut at 10-over par at the Workday Charity Open. Those two rounds were enough for bookmakers to more than double his odds for The Memorial.


Another popular pick last week, Marc Leishman, has also seen his odds balloon. The Aussie looked to have a chance to contend through the first 25 holes or so at the Workday but he fell apart and didn’t make the weekend. Leishman can be found at 80-1.

Joining Leishman at +8000 is Sungjae Im. The South Korean grinder has come back down to earth over the past month and this is a very strong field, but it’s still a bit startling to see Im stumble all the way down the board.
