The Presidents Cup - Preview Day 3

Tiger Woods will be back playing competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge that begins on Nov. 30.

While the golf world may be buzzing over his impending return, the wagering community isn’t too thrilled with his chances in the Bahamas.

Woods is a 50-1 shot to win his own event, according to odds posted bySky BetTuesday.Woods has the longest odds of anyone in the 18-player field.

The co-favorites are Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas at 6-1. Dustin Johnson is 7-1, and Rickie Fowler is 10-1.

There are multiple prop bets available on Woods. The best odds are that he will make an eagle (6-4), finish in the top 10 (11-4) or withdraw from the event (7-2).

Among the other prop bets available, Woods will:

– Have a bogey-free round: 4-1

– Make birdie or better first hole: 5-1

– Finish top 5 (including ties): 7-1

– Have a bogey-free first round: 16-1

– Lead after Round 2 (including ties): 28-1

– Lead after Round 3 (including ties): 28-1

– Lead after Round 1 (including ties): 33-1

– Make a hole-in-one: 150-1

– Win wire-to-wire: 300-1

That last one seems like a stretch, although the Stinger IS back.

Wager responsibly.

Woods is currently ranked 1,180 in the Official World Golf Rankings. Since he last played in a pro event in February, he underwent his fourth back surgery and was arrested for DUI. He eventually plead guiltyto reckless driving as part a pretrial diversion program often used for first-time offenders.

USP NFL: SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS AT MIAMI DOLPHINS S FBN USA FL

The Miami Dolphins – or, specifically, Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase – just had a bit of a temper tantrum. Reportedly furious at his stagnating offense’s inability to do anything in the way of scoring, he fired a shot across the bow and traded Jay Ajayi to the upstart Philadelphia Eagles. The man who finished last season with 1,272 rushing yards on 4.9 yards per carry is heading to the team with the second-best record in the NFL, and all the Dolphins are getting in return is a fourth-round pick.

Eagles fans couldn’t believe their luck:

Golf: Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods announced on Monday that he will return to competitive golf for the first time in nine months at the unofficial Hero World Challenge Nov. 30-Dec. 3 at Albany, in the Bahamas.

Woods, who turns 42 on Dec. 30, has not played a competitive round since the first week of February. Citing back pain, he withdrew from the Omega Dubai Desert Classic after shooting 77 in the opening round, which came one week after a missed cut at the PGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. Those were the only two events that Woods has played in 2017 on the heels of only playing once in 2016.

Woods, the 14-time major champion now ranked No. 1,180 in the world, last finished a 72-hole tournament at the no-cut 2016 Hero last December, where he tied for the field lead in birdies (24) and finished in 15th place. There, though competitively rusty, he impressed onlookers with the array of shots he played, and with his ability to score. He fired a bogey-free 65 in the second round, and optimism abounded for a big year ahead.

But that lasted only a matter of weeks. Woods has undergone four surgical procedures on his back, the latest performed in April to alleviate ongoing pain in his back and leg. He last was seen in golf circles at the Presidents Cup at Liberty National earlier this month, where he served as vice-captain to Steve Stricker on the winning U.S. side. Lately, he has posted videos of himself hitting golf shots in shorts.

Woods keeps a home at Albany, the tournament site, and he is a five-time champion of the Hero, a tournament that generates charitable funds for the Tiger Woods Foundation. The field includes six of the top-10 players in the world, including the top four: Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Hideki Matsuyama and Justin Thomas.

Albany is the perfect setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field, said Woods, who was added to the field as a sponsor exemption alongside Ryder Cup player Daniel Berger.

I want to thank (CEO) Pawan Munjal and Hero MotoCorp for their continued support of this tournament and my foundation. I would also like to thank the fans for their unwavering support during my injury.
