Tiger Woods Strong Favourite for US PGA Championship

Tiger Woods is the bookies’ strong favourite to win the upcoming US PGA Championship

However, it is still Woods who is favourite to win a head-to-head matchup at the PGA Championship.

Woods currently has odds of 9/2 while the best available on Mickelson are 16/1.

The bookies are preparing themselves for a massive amount of bets on Woods ot win his fifth US PGA Championship and his first since 2007 after he shot a brilliant 61 during the second round of his dominant win at the Bridgestone Invitational.

So far Woods has attracted more than a third of the $1.6 million already bet on the tournament at Betfair where he is the $5.60 favourite. Michael Felgate of Centrebet said that “The punters love backing Tiger and he is getting into the odds he used to be when he dominated the majors five and six years ago.”

Unsurprisingly Woods is also the favourite in the PGATour.com Power Rakings. Mickelson is all the way down in eighth place; instead Henrik Stenson is listed as second in the rankings.
