Tiger’s win at Augusta in 2019 was his 15th major title and his first since 2008. Can he take 16th on Sunday at the Old Course in St Andrews , Scotland?
When it comes to the Open Championship, Woods has been wildly successful, winning it three times (2000, 2005, 2006). He’s also had four other Top 10 finishes.
He won the Open in 2000 and 2005 at the Old Course – where they are playing this week – which is why gamblers are hoping he can recapture the magic once again.
Can he win his fourth Open?

A win on Sunday would put the Tigers into a six-way draw with third place on the roster for most Open titles. Bettors are all in favor of Woods, as he is currently the biggest responsible for the Open at BetMGM, with 5.7% of the tickets (first second) and 6.7% of the hand (first three).
Woods bets also make up 10% of the handle at DraftKings Sportsbook (most).
“Tiger Woods has been an important responsibility for BetMGM at The Open Championship,” said BetMGM vice president of trading Jason Scott. “Judging from his most recent tournaments, competing four days in a row seems to put an incredible amount of strain on Tiger’s body, so we feel comfortable with the big responsibility.”
Tiger Woods says LIV players ‘turned away’ from PGA | HERD
Tiger Woods has delivered his harshest criticisms of golfers who have abandoned the PGA status quo for the highly-incentivized LIV tour.
Despite the heavy bets on Wood, he’s still a substantial long-distance scorer to win the league title. Understandably so, given his health and recent performances.
Tiger’s last PGA win was at the Zozo Championships on October 28, 2019.
He finished 47th at the Masters in April. Tiger started his first PGA Tour since the 2020 Masters after a car accident in February 2021.
Tiger shot a 9-over-par 79 point in the third round of the PGA Championship at Southern Hills in Tulsa, Okla., in May, then withdrew. It was the third worst round of his main career and the fifth worst of his professional playing career.
“I am expecting a similar, if slightly better, performance from Tiger than what we saw at the Masters this April,” said senior director of trading operations FOX Bet, Dylan Brossman said. “Two respectable rounds to get him to the weekend but an aging body that won’t be able to keep up the pace will come on Sunday.”
