Tiger Woods' Hero World Challenge odds

+8000 via FanDuel

Woods is teeing it up for the first time since withdrawing from the Masters in April due to injury. He played just two events early in 2023 since missing the cut during the 2022 British Open.

Woods' odds range from a market low of +5000 to a high of +7500 from FanDuel. That's an implied probability ranging from 1.32% to 1.96%. Despite being the host of this event, Woods hasn't won the Hero World Challenge since it moved to the Bahamas. He last played in 2020, registering a fourth-place finish.

Hero World Challenge field notes

There's a small but elite field in attendance for the 2023 Hero World Challenge as Woods makes his return to competitive play, including World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler.

In addition to Hovland, the back-to-back reigning champion of this event in just his first two appearances, the 20-man field includes 2023 major champions Wyndham Clark (U.S. Open) and Brian Harman (British Open). Will Zalatoris is also scheduled to play in what will be his first competitive event since the 2023 Dell Technologies Match Play. Zalatoris has played just eight PGA Tour events since winning the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship for his maiden victory.

Since the conclusion of the FedEx Cup playoffs, Hovland helped Europe win the Ryder Cup, finished fifth in the BMW PGA Championship, and he tied for second in the DP World Tour Championship. He enters the tournament fourth in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR).
