  • Thanks to a big bet placed in Las Vegas, Tiger Woods is now the lone favorite to win the 2019 PGA Championship.
  • Learn more about the size of the bet, as well as where Woods' odds now sit.

As recently as Tuesday morning, Tiger Woods was a co-favorite to win the 2019 PGA Championship, joining Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson with 10-1 odds at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

Considering Woods, easily the biggest draw in the sport, is coming off an incredible win at the Masters last month, it’s no surprise to see the 15-time major championship winner among the favorites at Bethpage Black.

Despite the price, one big Las Vegas bettor still believed Tiger was worth a $10,000 wager to win the PGA Championship, according to a tweet from Jeff Sherman, Vice President of Risk Management for SuperBook USA.

In fact, Sherman added that it is also the biggest bet Westgate has taken on the PGA Championship.

Todd Dewey, a sports betting reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, tweeted that as a result of the $10,000 bet, Westgate moved Woods down to 8-1,  making him the favorite to win the PGA Championship.

Johnson and Koepka remain at 10-1, followed by Rory McIlroy (12-1), Rickie Fowler (16-1) and Jon Rahm (16-1), at the time of writing.

Interestingly, while Woods is the overall favorite to win the tournament, Tiger is a +140 underdog to both Johnson and McIlroy in PGA Championship tournament matchups.
