The video, which was shared by Woods on his social media platforms on Sunday afternoon, is the first real glimpse into his recovery from a golf standpoint after a car accident in January. Until this point, only still photos have been released and he himself had given no update.

With the golf world on a break until the next FedExCup event at the Sentry Tournament of Champions on Jan. 6, looking ahead to the odds for April’s major feels can fill the void.

Only 14 golfers have better odds to win the Masters than Tiger, who is +3500 at DraftKings. A $100 bet would profit $3,500.

Let’s start with Woods.

Woods played in just three events during the 2020-21 season, including a missed cut at the U.S. Open and a T38 at the Masters in November 2020. His last win came in 2019 at the Zozo Championship. He won the Masters in 2019 for his fifth Green Jacket and 15th career major.

Woods has not played professional golf or given much of an update since suffering multiple leg injuries in a single-car accident in February following the Genesis Open. No timetable for his return to professional golf has been given.

The early betting favorite for the Masters is Jon Rahm, who won his first major at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm is +900, head ahead of Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson, each coming in at +1000.

Defending champion Hideki Matsuyama is tied for 10th on the oddsboard with Patrick Cantlay at +2200.
