FanDuel is among several sportsbooks dealing odds on Tiger Woods for the 2022 Masters Tournament in April. As of Thursday, FanDuel was offering Woods at 42-to-1 odds (+4200) to win the first major tournament on this year’s golf calendar.

Woods has won The Masters and its ceremonial Green Jacket five times. The only player with more career victories at Augusta is Jack Nicklaus with six. Depending on your generational viewpoint, one or the other has to be considered golf’s GOAT.

Woods, of course, is still recovering from a serious car accident last year in California. The chances of him actually playing in The Masters this year are beyond remote, even though he’s working on another comeback.

Outside of free publicity for sportsbooks, you would think there wouldn’t be much to be gained by offering odds on Woods at Augusta. But we’re providing this article as a public service announcement of sorts to know your sportsbook’s house rules before making a bet on Woods.

FanDuel’s house rules state that if a player doesn’t start a tournament then all bets on him are void. MGM Resorts Director of Trading Jeff Stoneback confirmed the rules operate the same way at BetMGM. SuperBook USA’s sheets also state “golfer must start tournament for action.” The same is true at PointsBet and DraftKings.

As you can see, Circa Sportsbook is offering eye-popping 400-to-1 odds on Woods to capture his sixth Green Jacket in April. But at Circa, all bets on Woods are action. In other words, if you place a bet on Woods and he does not play, no refund would be coming your way.

Given that, is Circa actually taking any significant bets on Woods?

“I feel like no one has been betting on him the last few months, for obvious reasons,” Circa Sportsbook Manager Chris Bennett said in a text.
