Tiger Woods was unable to compete in the 2021 Masters Tournament after a car accident left him sidelined, but one sportsbook has posted odds on his chances in 2022.
BetMGM posted early lines for the 2022 Masters with Woods listed at +4000, behind 15 other golfers including 2021 champion Hideki Matsuyama and rising star Will Zalatoris. DraftKings also had Woods at +4000 while FanDuel opened up the 2019 champion at +4200.
At this point, playing in the 2022 Masters seems like it would be a win for Tiger, who by all accounts suffered serious injuries to his legs following a single-car accident in Los Angeles on Feb. 23. There’s been little information regarding his injuries and how they relate to his future in golf, but there’s no indication he’ll be able to compete any time soon.
If Woods doesn’t play in the 2022 tournament, each of the three sportsbooks to post odds have said bets placed on Tiger will be refunded.
Woods has five career wins at the Masters, including his come-from-behind win at the 2019 tournament.
As of July 27, US Open champion Jon Rahm sits atop the oddsboard at BetMGM at +1000.
2020 Masters winner Dustin Johnson has the second shortest odds at +1100, and he is followed by Jordan Spieth at +1200 and Justin Thomas at +1400. They’re just ahead of the next tier at +1600 of Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and Rory McIlroy. Xander Schauffele (+1800) is the only other golfer below +2000.
Johnson is alone as the favorite at DraftKings at +1000. That’s where Thomas has his shortest odds at +1100.
Rahm and Spieth are the two favorites at FanDuel at +1100, just ahead of Johnson and Thomas.
Defending champion Matsuyama is +2200 at DraftKings, +2200 at FanDuel and +2500 at BetMGM.
Runner-up Will Zalatoris is +3300 at BetMGM and FanDuel and +3500 at DraftKings.
