Tiger WoodsEven though Tiger Woods isn’t relevant as far as winning majors goes, he’s still relevant as far as betting goes. It’s not as popular to bet on Tiger to win tournaments as it once was, but that doesn’t mean Sportsbooks should forget about the once legendary golfer.

The new thing to bet on is when and which tournament Tiger Woods will win this year. But why stop there sportsbooks? Beef up the Tiger Woods offerings. How many tournaments will Tiger win this year? How many majors will Tiger win this year? What will Tiger Woods be ranked at the end of the year?

It’s 2011. It’s a brand new year, with brand new possibilities. That being said, it could be possible that Woods gets his game back this year with the all of the drama behind him. Bodog has odds on who will win the money list this year and they have Tiger Woods at 11/10. In fact, bookmakers still have Tiger favored to win the Open Championship and the Masters.

It’s time to return Mr. Woods to his rightful spot leading the golf betting buzz. We just need him to do his part, and win this year. For his part, Woods looked good early at Torrey Pines. He started off with back-to-back rounds of 69 and heading into the weekend he was in striking distance of the leaders. After a 74 on Saturday and 75 on Sunday Woods finished the tournament at 1-under. But there was enough positive signs for both golf fans and bettors to jump back on the Tiger Woods betting wagon.
