Will Tiger Woods appear at the Masters?
Still, the biggest question in the world of golf is, will Woods appear at the Masters? After 2 months hiatus, it is hard to answer. According to the oddsmakers, the chances are 50/50 (you can flip a coin). As you already know, Woods announced that he will return to the competition at Augusta National next week.
According to the latest information, Woods, a 4-time champion, is minus 120 to miss the cut (you must wage $120 to get $100) and even to make the cut. Currently, the Masters field is expected to be 98 players and the low 50 plus ties. Plus, players within 10 shots of the 36 hole lead, who will play this weekend. Woods still have a good chance. He is plus 350, to finish among top 20. This means you can ‘’invest’’ $100 to gain $350. For his score that will place him 21st or worse, he is a minus 420. Woods finished outside top 20 only 2 times (he played 17 Masters as a professional golfer), in 2012 (T-40).
Woods withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open on 5 February, so his opening round will be his first action in competition since then. Still, Tiger Woods remains 40 to 1 to win his green jacket, (this should be his fifth green jacket). The bigger concern is, will he withdraw from the tournament at some point. Unfortunately, at this point, even Woods doesn’t know. Minus 700 odds are for no and plus 500 odds are for yes. It would be very risky to wage on Woods at this point. He has lack of training and bad results during a long period.
