Tiger Woods betting favorite to win 2019 Masters

In the midst of leading the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta on Saturday, Tiger Woods is the favorite to win the 2019 Masters, according to ESPN.com’s David Payne Purdum, who cited odds from the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook.

Although Woods hasn’t won a major championship since the 2008 U.S. Open, he sports 10-1 odds to take the 2019 Masters.

Tiger is in good position to pick up his first victory of any kind since 2013, as he leads by three strokes after the third round of the Tour Championship.

The 42-year-old has overcome multiple back surgeries to enjoy a resurgent 2018 season on the PGA Tour.

Woods finished tied for sixth at the Open Championship and narrowly missed the fifth PGA Championship win of his career, placing second. Tiger has six top-10 results this season, and he looks likely to make it seven at the Tour Championship.

While Woods is a four-time Masters champion, he hasn’t won a green jacket since 2005. He finished tied for 32nd at the Masters this year and hasn’t finished better than 17th since tying for fourth in 2013.
