Since missing the cut at the 2018 U.S. Open, Tiger Woods has gone on a tear, answering any and all questions about his ability to make a run at overtaking Jack Nicklaus as the all-time leader in major championship victories.
In his tournament starts since July 1, 2018, Woods’ results have been outstanding. Here is a rundown on his final standing in every tournament over that stretch of time:
- Quicken Loans National: T4
- The Open Championship (British Open): T6
- WGC Bridgestone Invitational: T31
- PGA Championship: 2
- The Northern Trust: T40
- Dell Technologies Championship: T24
- BMW Championship: T6
- Tour Championship: 1
- Hero World Challenge: 17
- Farmers Insurance Open: T20
- Genesis Open: T15
- WGC Mexico Championship: T10
When it comes to Woods’ legacy, he can solidify his place as the greatest golfer of all-time if he can catch Jack Nicklaus on the all-time major championship victories list. Woods is currently at 14; Nicklaus retired with 18.
So, how does it look for the 11-time PGA Player of the Year, who turned 43 in December, going forward?
Woods’ resurgent play in recent month, combined with his legendary stature, has caused his name to soar up the list of favorites in all four major championships in 2019.
The Vegas oddsmakers still have him listed as a minor longshot (-350) to win a major in 2019, but it’s clear they expect him to contend.
With that being said, here is a look at how the oddsmakers in Vegas see Tiger faring in each of the 2019 major championship tournaments.
