We’ll assess Tiger’s chances of winning next week.
For now, let’s look at some of the more interesting PGA prop bets circulating. If you want more Tiger Woods Prop Bets Click Here.
TIGER’S SCOLE ON HIS FIRST HOLE OF THE TOURNAMENT
Double Bogey or worse: +1400
The smart play is for Tiger to keep his cool and avoid letting his emotions take over early on. For that reason, I expect him to play conservatively on Thursday. A par on the first hole would make sense.
Pick: Par -188
TIGER TO PUT A BALL IN THE WATER
Again – I see Tiger playing it safe to get his feet (not his ball) wet. If Tiger loses strokes, it will be in the fine areas like his short game or putting. But I don’t see misfiring badly enough to find the water.
Pick: No +120
WHERE TIGER’S OPENING TEE SHOT WILL LAND
For all the talk of jitters, we have to remember that Tiger was already the most scrutinized golfer – perhaps even athlete – of all time before any scandal hit. I’m thus not convinced he’ll be shaking in his boots on the opening tee. I expect him to lace one right down the center of the fairway.
Pick: Fairway -225
TIGER’S FIRST-ROUND SCORE
64 or less: +1600
75 or more: +350
I see Tiger playing tight enough to avoid making many mistakes (bogeys) but also tight enough to post only a few red figures. A couple of birdies and the odd bogey should amount to around of 69 or 70 – safe enough to keep him in contention but not sparkling by any means.
Pick: 69-70 +250
TIGER’S DRIVING ACCURACY
Over 62.5 per cent: -120
Under 62.5 per cent: -120
While I expect a good opening tee shot, it’s important to remember that Tiger’s overall driving accuracy sometimes eludes him even when he’s “on.” With possible rust factoring in, he should miss more than a few fairways.
Pick: Under 62.5 per cent -120
OTHER UPCOMING PROP BETS
British books in particular are going wild with their prop bets and some even wackier ones will pop up as the tournament approaches next week.
Among the rumoured props:
Will Elin attend: I say no. Tiger can focus on the course but Elin would have a tough time avoiding people in the gallery.
Will there be a streaker on the course: I doubt it. It could happen in New York but not in the controlled, stuffy environment of Augusta.
