Tiger Woods Wins 15th Major Championship With 18-1 Odds to Win 2019 Masters

Tiger Woods entered Sunday's Masters having opened the week with 18-1 odds of winning.

Woods was two strokes back of leader Francesco Molinari coming into Sunday as he looked for his fifth career victory at Augusta National.  A victory would also be his first major championship since the 2008 U.S. Open, and indeed that is exactly what happened as Woods won the 2019 Masters.

The books are likely take a bit of a hit with the Woods victory as he tends to generate a significant number of futures bets to win.

Molinari was at 28-1 odds entering this week's tournament.

“We’re all very close,” Molinari said as he led coming into Sunday's round.  “It’s nice to be a little bit ahead, but you might just need one hole to change. You never know how it’s going to go, especially around a course like here.”

Augusta National advanced the final round to Sunday morning in a safety move with thunderstorms expected to arrive Sunday afternoon.
