Tiger Woods returns at the Memorial, but can he contend with PGA Championship on horizon?

Author: americangambler | Last Updated: July 15, 2020

With all of the sports coming back in the next few weeks, there is one that may have more eyes on it than most in early August, thanks to one man.

Tiger Woods.

The best player in the history of the sport (arguably) will take to the course at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio Thursday, for a tournament that was started by Jack Nicholas, who is the other name in the discussion for top player of all time.

Can Woods actually shock the world, and the odds, to make a winning return to the course a few weeks before the PGA Championship August 6-9 at Harding Park in San Francisco, CA.

Woods is looking to win his 16th major, moving to within two of Nicholas. He is currently the seventh favorite at PointsBet NJ (+1600) to bring home his first PGA Championship since back to back wins 2006-2007. But he will have plenty of competition: Rory McIlroy (+800), Dustin Johnson (+1200), and Brooks Koepka (+1400, two-time defending champion), who have combined to win five of the last eight titles, are all ahead of him in the odds.

PointsBet NJ has a special promotion going on for Woods’ return before he tees off Thursday. The odds for him to make the cut will go up from -285 each time 100 people place a wager on him. As of Wednesday afternoon, those odds were up to -130. Another Pointsbet promo offer on Woods lets you get paid out if he leads after Round 1, which would be tough considering the field has 27 of the top 30 players in the world.

Memorial Tournament Odds 

If you are a prop bet fan, there are plenty of plus-money offers on Woods that have been boosted for the bettors:

  • Longest drive over 322.5 yards, +100
  • Over 4.5 birdies in the first round, +100
  • Finish top 20, +160
  • Finish top 10, +290
  • Finish top five, +600
  • Winner, +2800

Golf Memorial Tournament Betting Predictions

I will take longest drive over 322.5 for +100 and finish top 20 for +160. The top 10 bet is tempting at that price.
