Odds on PGA Tour Players to Win a Major in 2019

Tiger Woods tees off on the South Course during the final round of the the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course on January 27, 2019 in San Diego, California.

Winning a major is considered the crown jewel in any professional golfer’s career, and when you factor in that there are only four events a year, it’s a huge accomplishment once you have one under your belt. Just ask Sergio Garcia.

Garcia finally got the monkey off his back when he won the 2017 Masters in his 74th attempt at a major. The triumph was the first major victory of the Spaniard’s career after the then 37-year-old finished in the top 10 on three separate occasions at Augusta National (2002, 2004, 2013). Garcia now owns the most career all-time top-10s in majors.

First-timers are getting the job done on the big stage

With Patrick Reed picking up a victory at the Masters, Brooks Koepka (U.S. Open, PGA Championship) and Francesco Molinari (British Open) also came away with major titles in 2018. Koepka now has an incredible three majors titles, while Molinari joined the list of first-time winners on golf’s biggest stage.

Since the 2015 PGA Championship, there have been a ridiculous 10 first-time major champions (Jason Day, Danny Willett, Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson, Jimmy Walker, Justin Thomas, Koepka, Reed, Garcia and Molinari).

So, which players are going to come away with a victory on golf’s biggest stage in 2019? Bovada has released odds on the occasion, which you can find below.

Can Tiger Woods finally end his major drought?

On the oddsboard, the biggest name that sticks out is Tiger Woods at +250. With the conclusion of the U.S. Open (and a back-to-back performance from Brooks Koepka), it’s been exactly 10.5 years since Eldrick won his last major.

But Woods played his best golf in quite some time in 2018 and was in contention more often than not by finishing 12th at the Honda Classic, T-2 at the Valspar, T-5 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, T-11 at The Players Championship and winning the Tour Championship in the fall. If Tiger is going to end the major drought, this is the year to do it.

The first major of the year, the Masters, gets underway at Augusta National from April 11-14. For a full breakdown of the tournament, check out my betting preview.

Will any of these golfers win a major in 2019?
