Tiger Woods finished his first golf tournament since suffering a major car accident in February, and his 2022 Masters odds have already gotten substantially shorter.

The accident resulted in compound fractures and broken bones in both of his legs as it was unclear if he was to ever play golf again.

However, his return to the course alongside his 12-year-old son, Charlie, left bettors and sharps equally optimistic.

While Woods’ odds to win the Masters were as long as +20000 before the tournament, they’ve shortened all the way to +3500 at books like DraftKings.

At FanDuel, Woods’ odds are at +4200.

With PointsBet, the greatest golfer of all time has been given 40-1 odds to win his sixth green jacket.

That’s a roughly 66% reduction in value across the board.

At the PNC Championship with his son Charlie, the Woods family finished second overall behind the Daly family, which comprised of former PGA Champion John Daly and his son John Daly II, who is a college golfer at the University of Arkansas.

The Woods family finished ahead of Justin Thomas and his dad, Mike, along with Stewart Cink and his son, Reagan.

Tiger and Charlie shot a 15-under 57 and made 13 birdies, one eagle and four pars.

Despite the showing, ESPN reported that Woods labored on many of his shots, and that it was clear his surgically repaired legs gave him trouble at times.

After the tournament, Woods shot down to reporters the idea of returning to the professional tour any time soon — but he did leave the door open for a future comeback.

“I can’t compete against these guys right now, no,” Woods told reporters. “It’s going to take a lot of work to get to where I can feel I can compete with these guys and be at a high level.”
