One main takeaway from the Open Championship was that Tiger’s game is in a place where he’s a legitimate threat to win a major again. I just don’t see him as a play right now, though. He’s getting better odds than guys like Jason Day and Jon Rahm, who have both won this year. Tiger may play very well. He had a solid start at Bridgestone and was in the top six the two starts before that. So he’s trending in the right direction, but I think there are guys more likely to win with bigger numbers.
