2022 Open Championship Odds

Tiger Woods is set to tee it up for potentially the last time at St. Andrews for the 150th Open Championship.
Having won two Claret Jugs at St. Andrews during his career, there is no doubt he has an advantage at course. But can he compete in his current physical limitations?
The course sets up favorably for the 2022 version of Tiger. With the fairways projected to play firm and fast he shouldn’t have to smash his driver to keep up with the big hitters on TOUR in order to compete.
Similar to Augusta National, St. Andrews is a course that requires contemplation and strategy. Even at this stage of his career, there is no one better than Woods in that department. The 15-time major champion knows where the trouble is on the course and will very likely do a good job in avoiding it.
Tiger decided to skip the U.S. Open to rest for the Open Championship. This leads me to believe he views it as his best possible chance to win another major going forward. The Old Course is relatively flat and should provide an easier walk for his clearly compromised foot.
Despite all of the factors that play into Tiger’s favor at St. Andrews, it would be a miracle if he won. I believe he is more than capable of putting on a show for one or two rounds, but expecting him to do it over four rounds is unrealistic at the moment.
Although we won’t bet him to win the Open Championship, there are other betting markets that may make more sense for a Tiger Woods bet.
Even in Tiger Woods current health, I believe he has enough course knowledge and skill to make the cut at St. Andrews. A top-10 isn’t as likely, but I would make a bet for him to make the cut that will cover my potential exposure on a top-20 bet.
