Don’t look now, but Tiger Woods is on the verge of winning his first PGA Tour event since the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club on August 4, 2013. Heading into the final round, Woods is the overwhelming favorite to win the 2018 Tour Championship.
According the oddsmakers in Las Vegas, Woods, who currently leads the tournament by three strokes, should cruise through Sunday’s final round to victory. That said, here is a look at the Tour Championship odds heading into the final round.
Odds courtesy of Sportsbook.ag as of September 22, 2018.
Rory McIlroy (+400)
McIlroy will enter Sunday at 9-under par for the tournament, putting him three strokes behind Woods. The 29-year-old will have to have an outstanding day with his putter to make a run at Woods, but as he has proven throughout his career, McIlroy is more than capable of carding rounds in the low-60’s when everything is clicking.
Justin Rose (+400)
Rose isn’t as flashy as some, but he is undoubtedly one of the most complete and consistent players on the PGA Tour. Like McIlroy, he is three strokes behind Woods and should be considered a serious threat going into Sunday.
Tiger Woods (-200)
Bottom line: Woods simply has to turn in a solid round to claim his first victory in over five years. Let’s not forget, Woods is lethal on Sunday when playing with the lead.
