Odds to Win The 2012 HE PLAYERS Championship: Tiger Woods at 20 for 1

Tiger Woods isn't coming off a strong outing at last week's Wells Fargo Championship, but can he turn his game around in time to pay off on the golf props this week at THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass? Get your PGA odds at Bovada Sportsbook.
Woods missed the cut last week at Quail Hollow, shooting rounds of 71 and 73 over the first two days of the tournament and then heading home early. That means Woods doesn't have any momentum as he heads into this week's 'fifth major' in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida to compete in a tournament that he won back in 2001.
And Woods can't draw on last year's performance at THE PLAYERS Championship for any inspiration either, as he withdrew from that event after just nine holes with leg pain – he'd shot an ugly 42 over those nine holes.
So where once Woods would be a dominant favorite on the golf odds for a tournament like THE PLAYERS, he enters this week tied for fourth at 20/1 with Phil Mickelson to win the event. Rory McIlroy (9/1), Lee Westwood (14/1), and Luke Donald (14/1) lead those odds.
Woods is also tied with Mickelson at 25/1 odds to lead THE PLAYERS after the first round this week – which would require a much better score on the front nine than 42. McIlroy (12/1), Westwood (16/1), and Donald (16/1) lead that prop wager as well.
At Bovada Sportsbook you can also get +350 odds on Woods finishing in the Top 5 at TPC Sawgrass this week, with the 'No' side of that golf prop favored at -550. Woods is also at +160 to end up in the Top 10, with that 'No' side at -210.
Finally, if you like Woods' chances of bouncing back from last week's Wells Fargo outing and actually making the cut this week you can get a payout of -450 on that wager; Woods missing the cut for the second week in a row has a line of +300.
