Tiger Woods Return

Tiger Woods Set To Return

Guess whose back?

For many golf fans, the news of Tiger Woods return has seemingly become routine about this time of the year. The comeback begins for Woods at the Hero World Challenge on November 30th. His return (no matter how many times now) always comes with at least a little bit of excitement. The one true difference this time around has to be expectations. I don’t believe any golf fan is expecting Tiger to come out and be the polarizing superstar he once was.

Can He Win Again?

So let’s get to the question every Tiger fan cares about, can he win again? In all honesty, the answer is that it’s probably going to be a long shot for him to win an event of any significance. Yes, everyone hopes and dreams that the Tiger that dominated the circuit in the early 2000s is going to show up one day. However, it’s far-fetched to think that the Woods of that era will ever make an appearance on the tour again. Is it possible for him to win something again? Sure. Anybody that plays golf knows it one of the most peculiar games you can play. It’s so easy to go from a pin seeker to being unable to hit a green in a regulation.

Current Record Status

Every fan knows Woods has 14 Major wins in his illustrious career. Can he get another major win? It’s very challenging to see Woods as a legitimate contender come major time. All the young guns currently in the PGA make it difficult to see Woods getting any more majors. Even if he’s able to somehow pull off the biggest turnaround story in golf history and win another major you’re fooling yourself if you think he’s going to catch Nicklaus at 18.

On the other hand, he sits at 79 career tournament wins. That leaves him just three behind the all-time leader Sam Snead. Can Woods find a hot streak at a few tournaments and make a run for the record. This is the more realistic record rather than the majors record. The downside is that the last time Woods won a tournament was in 2013. The last time he won a major 2008. Also, all of these victories occurred before all the back surgeries. Seeing Tiger hold up a trophy one more time would be a dream for many but only time will tell how he’s recovered this time around.

Vegas Odds

As you may know, we like to do a little betting here at QuarterMaster. Anyone interested in the odds for Woods in his first tournament back needs to look no further. Odds he wins the Hero World Challenge start at 50-1. For those that aren’t aware of how that sits in comparison, favorites Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas sit at 7-1. For even fancier wagers, odds Woods hits an eagle are at 6-4. Hardcore Woods fans may want to go for the 11-4 odds he finishes in the top 10. For the doubter, you can take the 7-2 odds that he withdraws. If you’re a real bold gambler, go for the 300-1 wire to wire finish for Woods.

For the Nostalgic Tiger Fan…
