Tiger Woods Wins Tour Championship, Remains 2019 Masters Favorite

Sep 23, 2018 6:30 PM EDT
  • Tiger Woods picked up his 80th PGA Tour victory Sunday at the 2018 Tour Championship.
  • His 9-1 betting odds make him the favorite to win the 2019 Masters. Jordan Spieth (10-1) and Dustin Johnson (12-1) have the next-best odds to win.

The wait is over.

After 1,876 days stuck on 79 career PGA Tour victories, Tiger Woods won the 2018 Tour Championship, shooting a 71 in the final round Sunday in Atlanta to hold off Billy Horschel for a two-shot victory.

Woods catapulted atop the 2019 Masters odds list after Saturday’s stellar 65. He remains there after Sunday’s victory.

Below are the updated Masters odds from the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. A few notes, courtesy of The Action Network’s Evan Abrams:

  • The last time Tiger entered a tournament with odds below 10-1: 2014 Honda Classic (8-1)
  • Last time Tiger entered a Major with odds below 10-1: 2013 PGA Championship (4-1)
  • Last time Tiger entered a Major as the favorite: 2013 PGA Championship (4-1)
