A bettor at BetMGM has placed a $13,000 bet on Tiger Woods to miss the cut at this weekend’s PGA Championship at +115 odds.
Woods, who missed a year’s worth of action due to a severe leg injury sustained in a car accident, returned to action at the Masters Tournament in early April, where he finished 47th.

Woods has continued physical therapy to strengthen his leg and has yet to play an event since.
Beginning Thursday morning at Southern Hills, Woods will embark on a quest to win his 16th major.
However, one bettor has little faith in Woods to have any success at the event and is confident he will miss the cut.
Below are notable betting trends and insights for Woods to miss the cut courtesy of BetMGM:
- $13,000 on Tiger +115 to miss the cut
- Make -125
- Miss +100
- Make: 42% of tickets, 3% of handle
- Miss: 58% of tickets, 97% of handle
Woods is also a significant liability at the book as an outright winner.
“Tiger Woods (+6600) is our biggest liability to win the PGA Championship. If Tiger were to win, it would be the biggest losing result in BetMGM history. Tiger missing the cut would be a good outcome for the sportsbook.” – Jason Scott, VP of Trading, BetMGM
Though it’s unlikely we ever see Woods return to top form, he did surprise everyone by winning the 2019 Masters, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see the best golfer of all-time flash some brilliance when we’re least expecting it.
Woods tee’s off at 9:11 a.m. ET Thursday and is paired with Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth.
