The GOAT still moves the needle.
Tiger Woods doesn’t dominate the golf world like he did in his heyday, but he’s still one of the most compelling storylines in the sport. However, it's been a rough 2023 for Tiger, with few bright spots on the course.
Below, find a discussion of Tiger Woods' current playing status, when he'll play next, and a breakdown of the Tiger Woods prop betting markets available for the rest of the year:
Tigers 2023 Form
It's been tough sledding for Tiger in 2023. He opened his year with a -1 score at the Genesis Invitational, finishing 45th in the field. Then, a few weeks later at the 2023 Masters, Woods managed to sneak by the cut line but had to withdraw due to injury, anyway.
It was the first time he's withdrawn from the Masters ever, and he's now missed the cut or WD from six of his last 11 majors.
When Will Woods Play Again?
After Augusta, Woods' team announced Tiger underwent a subtalar fusion ankle surgery on the same right leg he injured in 2021. He announced he would not be playing at the 2023 PGA Championship and his status for the year's final two majors is also up in the air.
Per DesaiOrtho.com, recovery from a subtalar fusion procedure can be 3-6 months to return to normal activities, but a full recovery can take up to 9-12 months.
Here are some more Tiger Woods betting odds and props for the rest of this season:
Tiger Woods 2023 Props:
If you're a Tiger believer, this final grouping market might be your best bet. Given Woods' recent history of getting worse as tournaments go on, he'll likely have to head into the final day in the lead. So, if you think he's going to win a tournament, it's better to take these +10000 odds than whatever (often worse) odds you'd get on a tournament-to-tournament basis.
Tiger Woods 2023 Odds For Remaining Majors:
|Tiger To Win||+6600|
With Woods not participating in the PGA Championship, the next potential major for him is the 2023 US Open at Los Angeles Country Club. Woods hasn't played in the US Open since 2020 and hasn't made the cut at the event since 2019. In fact, he's only made the cut at the US Open once since 2013.
The tournament has never been held at Los Angeles Country Club before.
|Tiger To Win||+6600|

Betting On PGA And Tiger Woods Futures
If you’re betting on PGA futures and you decide to wager on Tiger Woods to win at the US Open, you would likely see odds listed like this at your sportsbook:
Since you’re betting on events that will happen in the future, this is called a futures bet. This type of wager is slightly different than a moneyline bet because it doesn’t have an obvious favorite indicated by the minus odds symbol (-). That means the golfer listed with the lowest odds is considered the favorite. In this instance, it’s Rory McIlroy at +700.
If you were to bet $100 on Woods prior to the tournament and he ends up winning, you’d get a payout of $1,300 – your original $100 is returned, along with your winnings of $1,200. On the other hand, if you wagered that same $100 on Brooks Koepka and he returns to form to take the title, you’d get a payout of $1,500 – you get your $100 back, plus your profit of $1,400.
