Betting on When Tiger Will Win His Record-Breaking 83rd PGA Tour Event

| November 24, 2019 9:40 pm PDT

Tiger Woods’ presence as a playing captain in this year’s Presidents Cup is certainly a big deal. However, when Tiger breaks the tie with Sam Snead and wins his 83rd PGA Tour event, that’s going to be some serious front-page material.

It’s not a matter of if it will happen, but when. And if you want to bet on when Tiger Woods’ next win on the PGA Tour — and his broken record for the most wins of all time — will occur, all you have to do is head to

When Will Tiger Woods Win His 83rd PGA Tour Title?

Not all of the top-ranked golf betting sites have released odds for this proposition, but all it takes is one!

83rd PGA Tour Win to Come in Any Other 2020 Event +150
No 83rd PGA Tour Title Before the End of 2020 +165
2020 Farmers Insurance Open +900
2019 Hero World Challenge +1000
2020 Genesis Invitational +1200
2020 WGC-Mexico +1400
2020 Masters +1600
2020 Players Championship +2000
2020 WGC-Matchplay +3300

For starters, I’d like to clarify that the 2019 Hero World Challenge (Dec. 4-7) isn’t an official PGA Tour-sanctioned event, and therefore, winning it wouldn’t count toward his total number of PGA Tour victories. For example, Tiger has actually won this tournament five times already, but those victories fall under the “other professional wins” category.

So let’s take Tiger’s tourney in the Bahamas out of the equation and focus on our other options.

83rd PGA Tour Win to Come in Any Other 2020 Event (+150)

Being that Woods’ 2020 schedule is still up in the air at this point, there’s no surprise this choice is the “betting favorite.” With that being said, there’s a good chance that the tournaments you see above are the only ones he will compete in from now through the end of April.

Know that if you lock this bet in, you’re essentially saying Tiger won’t win until at least the Wells Fargo Championship in May. 

No 83rd PGA Tour Title Before the End of 2020 (+165)

Unless an injury impedes his progress, it’s likely Tiger plays somewhere between 12-16 events in 2020. Keep in mind, he will target venues he has sustained remarkable success at in the past, making winning golf tournaments even more realistic.

Woods has won three times in the last 14 months, and it’s hard to imagine him not picking up win #83 by this time next year.

2020 Farmers Insurance Open (+900)

This will be a popular choice considering Tiger has tamed Torrey Pines a flabbergasting eight times already. Nevertheless, here’s something that’s definitely worth noting.

When Woods arrives in La Jolla to play in the Farmers Insurance Open during the final weekend in January, it will probably be the first time we see Tiger in the six weeks that will have elapsed since the Presidents Cup. I’d probably need to see odds a bit more alluring than +900 to pull the trigger on this one.

2020 Genesis Invitational (+1200)

It has been well documented that Riviera Country Club is the golf course Tiger has played the most on the PGA Tour without registering a victory. Tiger has teed it up at “Riv” 12 times (10 as a professional) and has finished runner-up twice (1998, 1999), but hoisting the trophy has evaded him each and every time.

Woods finished 15th at last year’s Genesis Open (now called the Genesis Invitational), and it’s conceivable he improves on that in 2020. At the same time, there’s a chance he could skip LA altogether, which would render this wager useless.

2020 WGC-Mexico (+1400)

Tiger finished 10th at the Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City last season, and the course sets up well for his strengths. There’s a good shot he returns, but what makes me wary here is that it’s likely he’ll have to choose between playing the WGC in Mexico or playing the Honda Classic the following week in his backyard.

After skipping the event at the Champion Course at PGA National last year, he may opt to pass on Mexico this year. Just a thought for you to remember when betting this Tiger Woods prop bet.

2020 Masters (+1600)

The defending champion at Augusta National will vie for his 6th Green Jacket in April, which would tie him with Golden Bear for the most Masters victories of all time. There’s a genuine possibility that he’ll be sitting in Butler’s Cabin getting interviewed by Jim Nantz once again, as perhaps no golf course fits Tiger’s eye more than the layout at Augusta.

In terms of overall value and the expectation of it coming to fruition, this might just be the best bet on the board.

2020 Players Championship (+2000)

As much as some of the venues discussed in the blog are great fits for Tiger, the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass is not. Sure, Woods has won THE PLAYERS twice (2001, 2013), but he hasn’t cracked the top 10 in Ponte Vedra Beach since he last won six years ago.

Rather than pounce on Tiger’s odds to win the 2020 PLAYERS Championship, I’d be much more inclined to snatch up his +3300 price at the Dell Technologies Match Play.

2020 WGC-Match Play (+3300)

Tiger’s record in match play is unparalleled, and Tiger has gone on record stating how much he enjoys playing at Austin Country Club. Given the handsome odds, this is a selection that has some serious merit.

It’s not a guarantee that he will be in the capital of Texas two weeks before the Masters, but using the Match Play as a final tune-up for the year’s first major could certainly be on the table. When you take into account that Tiger placed 5th at last year’s WGC in Austin and went on to win at Augusta two weeks later, recreating that same schedule is something he’ll absolutely be contemplating.

My Pick for This Tiger Woods Prop Bet

Not only am I intrigued by the favorable odds that are attached, but I also find it hard to bet against Tiger in a “mano a mano” situation. The timeline seems to make sense, as Tiger will utilize the first couple months of the calendar year to get his feet wet, if you will.

By the time he shows up in Austin, he’ll be in full grind mode in preparation for Augusta.

If the question is whether I should bet on a healthy and well-rested Tiger to pounce on a 64-man field at +3300, just tell me where to sign up!
