Tiger shot a 13-under 275 to capture the Arnold Palmer Invitiational over the weekend, his first PGA Tour win since the 2009 sex scandal. Tiger actually went 923 days between PGA Tour wins; his previous victory was at the 2009 BMW Championship on Sept. 13, 2009 (he did win the Australian Masters two months later).
Thanks to his win at the Arnold Palmer, Tiger is now the favorite to win the Masters in two weeks.
Jeff Sherman, the golf oddsmaker at the Las Vegas Hilton sports book, set the following line for the major:
- – Tiger Woods 4:1
- Rory McIlroy 5:1
- Phil Mickelson 10:1
Tiger entered Sunday’s final round behind McIlroy as the Masters favorite, but that changed after he won the tournament. It looks like the public’s love affair with Tiger is back on.
