- Tiger Woods is listed at +2200 odds to win the Memorial Tournament for the sixth time in his career.

DUBLIN, Ohio – The PGA Tour’s return amid the coronavirus pandemic has been successful as there have been few positive cases in the four tournaments held since the Tour’s three-month hiatus.
The next event for the PGA Tour is the Memorial Tournament taking place beginning on Thursday at the Muirfield Village Golf Course.
The field for the tournament will be stacked as the top 12 golfers in the FedEx Cup Standings will all be in action.
The Memorial Tournament will also mark the return of Tiger Woods, who will be playing in his first PGA Tour event since the Genesis Invitational in February.
I’m looking forward to playing in the @MemorialGolf next week. I’ve missed going out and competing with the guys and can’t wait to get back out there.

In his return, Woods has +2200 odds to record his sixth career victory at the Memorial Tournament. Although Tiger hasn’t won the Memorial since 2012 his biggest advantage will be his experience in knowing the course.
The last time Woods was seen in action he was playing in The Match: Champions for Charity golf tournament against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady while teaming up with Peyton Manning for a win.
The +2200-longshot odds-on Tiger is well worth the risk at legal sportsbooks as he remains a threat at any tournament to climb the leaderboard.
Odds To Win The Memorial Tournament
- Bryson DeChambeau +1000
- Justin Thomas +1100
- Rory McIlroy +1400
- Patrick Cantlay +1600
- Dustin Johnson +1800
- Jon Rahm +1800
- Brooks Koepka +2200
- Tiger Woods +2200
- Webb Simpson +2500
Outside of Tiger, there are also plenty of betting options in a loaded field as former Memorial Tournament champions Patrick Cantlay (+1600), Hideki Matsuyama (+2200), Matt Kuchar (+6600), and Justin Rose (+5000) are all experienced options to bet on.
The favorite to win the Memorial Tournament Bryson DeChambeau at +1000 odds should be considered by bettors as well.
Since the PGA Tour’s return, DeChambeau has not finished outside of 10th place in four events including his three-stroke victory at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
The top-ranked golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy, has +1400 odds to win the Memorial but bettors should avoid those odds and take either Woods or DeChambeau who are both better options going into the first round.
The tee times for the first round of the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide haven’t been posted yet but all eyes will certainly be on Tiger and company when they are released.
