Tiger Woods’ Masters Odds: Look For Legend’s Return to Augusta in 2024

The golf legend spoke, PGA Tour fans swooned, and sportsbooks got to work on Tiger Woods’ odds to win the Masters in 2024.

Tiger Woods announced his return to competitive golf on Tuesday, saying that he will not play a full schedule. Instead, he said he’s hoping to play about one tournament per month.

In Tiger Woods’ Masters odds, FanDuel has him listed at +13000 to win at Augusta National Golf Course in Augusta, GA, where he has already won five times. Woods’ odds to win the Masters are the same as three-time champion Phil Mickelson, 2013 champion Adam Scott, and 2019 U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland.

Tiger is still recovering from a horrific automobile accident he was involved in February 2021. This past April, Tiger had surgery on his ankle and is playing in this week’s Hero World Challenge.

Tiger Woods’ Masters Odds

Other legal sportsbooks are split on Tiger Woods’ odds to win the Masters in April 2024:

Tiger spoke at a news conference Tuesday about various items — including the Hero World Challenge he hosts — and his playing plans for 2024.

Tiger was asked: In a best-case scenario, what would your schedule look like next year?

“I think that best scenario would be maybe a tournament a month. I think that’s realistic … you would have to start with maybe at Genesis [in Los Angeles] and something in March near the Players,” Tiger said at the news conference.

“Again, we have set up right now the biggest events are one per month. It sets itself up for that. Now, I need to get myself ready for all that. I think this week is a big step in that direction.”

“This week” is the Hero World Challenge, which Woods hosts. The 72-hole tournament at Albany, in the Bahamas, will be Tiger’s first appearance since the 2023 Masters.

“My game feels rusty, I haven’t played in a while,” Tiger said at the news conference. “I had my subtalar fused. I’m excited to compete and play, and I’m just as curious as all of you are to see what happens because I haven’t done it in a while.

“I can tell you this, I don’t have any of the pain that I had at Augusta or pre that in my ankle. Well, other parts are taking the brunt of the load, so I’m a little more sore in other areas, but the ankle’s good.  So that surgery was a success.”

Tiger made the cut at the 2023 Masters, then withdrew. It was Tiger’s 23rd consecutive Masters cut made, tying Fred Couples and Gary Player for the most consecutive cuts made at Augusta.

The Hero World Challenge will have a field of 19 other players, including world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, FedEx Cup champion Viktor Hovland, and major winners Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Matt Fitzpatrick, Keegan Bradley, Collin Morikawa, Brian Harman, Lucas Glover, Justin Rose, Jason Day, and Wyndham Clark.

The Hero World Challenge is not a PGA Tour event. Tiger is listed at +5500 to win his event. On Wednesday, Tiger cut short his scheduled 18-hole pro-am and only played nine holes.

Golf’s Biggest Name Returns to Competitive Play

Tiger is the game’s biggest star and has been since he turned professional in 1996. He has won 15 majors, second only to Jack Nicklaus’ 18 majors. Tiger has won 82 events on the PGA Tour, tying him with Sam Snead for the most in history.

Bettors will watch Tiger’s recovery leading up to the Masters. He always has to be considered a contender to win the Masters. In 2019, Woods unexpectedly won his fifth green jacket, his first victory at Augusta since 2005. His odds to win in 2019 were +1400. From 1997 to 2019, his odds were higher only in 2015 (+4000). When Tiger plays the Masters, you feel like he always has a chance to win.
