Tiger Woods will be back playing competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge that begins on Nov. 30.
Woods is a 50-1 shot to win his own event, according to odds posted by Sky Bet Tuesday. Woods has the longest odds of anyone in the 18-player field.
The co-favorites are Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas at 6-1. Dustin Johnson is 7-1, and Rickie Fowler is 10-1.
There are multiple prop bets available on Woods. The best odds are that he will make an eagle (6-4), finish in the top 10 (11-4) or withdraw from the event (7-2).
Among the other prop bets available, Woods will:
— Have a bogey-free round: 4-1
— Make birdie or better first hole: 5-1
— Finish top 5 (including ties): 7-1
— Have a bogey-free first round: 16-1
— Lead after Round 2 (including ties): 28-1
— Lead after Round 3 (including ties): 28-1
— Lead after Round 1 (including ties): 33-1
— Make a hole-in-one: 150-1
— Win wire-to-wire: 300-1
That last one seems like a stretch, although the “Stinger” IS back.
Woods is currently ranked 1,180 in the Official World Golf Ranking. Since he last played in a pro event in February, he underwent his fourth back surgery and was arrested for DUI. He eventually plead guilty to reckless driving as part a pretrial diversion program often used for first-time offenders.
