Odds on Tiger Woods to Win the 2018 U.S. Open

The 2018 U.S. Open is shaping up to be a tournament for the ages, but the recent performances of Tiger Woods have given the major a new dimension. According to sportsbooks, Eldrick has a realistic shot of winning the whole thing at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club.

This year’s U.S. Open marks the 10th anniversary of Tiger’s last major victory. The now 42-year-old edged out Rocco Mediate at the 2008 U.S. Open to win his 14th major. Woods is a three-time champion at the ever-tough event, having also won in 2000 and 2002.

Odds indicate Tiger could end his major drought

At Bovada, Woods is 10th in the odds to win the tournament at +2200. For a full betting preview of the 2018 U.S. Open, click here.

There’s been no shortage of doubters surrounding Woods in recent years, and when you factor in his poor performances at majors, it’s understandable. The legendary golfer hasn’t participated in the U.S. Open since 2015 when he missed the cut due to a disappointing 16-over-par showing. Tiger notched a T-32 +13 at the 2013 U.S. Open and a T-21 +7 in 2012.

Tiger’s recent form is great news for bettors

Considering his age and injury history, Woods will very likely never return to his past dominant form, but he’s been playing some solid golf in 2018, which is a statement I haven’t been able to make in quite some time. In the last few months, Tiger has recorded a T-23 at the Farmers Insurance Open, a 12th-place finish at the Honda Classic, a T-2 at the Valspar Championship, a T-5 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, a T-11 at The Players Championship and a T-23 at the Memorial.

Projecting him to win the U.S. Open could be considered wishful thinking, but with his current form, it’s realistic to expect Eldrick to be firmly in the mix at the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.
