Tiger Woods completed another miraculous comeback by simply finishing The Masters Sunday. He earned an "A" for effort from the cheering patrons at Augusta National, and the millions who followed his every shot on TV or their favorite mobile device.

But it was not the result sought by Woods, or the multitudes who backed him to win a sixth green jacket. Woods finished 47th overall at +13. His third round score of 78 (+6) was the worst Masters round of his career.

How much would you have made betting $100 on Tiger Woods each year he has played in the Masters? Woods has earned five Masters green jackets in 23 tournament appearances as a pro. As one might expect, his price was significantly steep in three of those wins.

Woods absorbed a significant amount of money in golf betting markets this year and was the most bet-on golfer to win the tournament.

Woods was as high as +12500 at sportsbooks earlier this year to win the 2022 Masters, only to see his price soar to +4000 in the buildup to the tournament. He moved to golf odds of +3500 after his statement last Tuesday, before settling back to +5000 at the same book by Thursday afternoon, the first day of The Masters.

Woods won his first Masters 25 years ago. His final score of 18-under 270 in 1997 was the lowest in Masters history at the time. Woods' 12-shot victory was the Masters’ most-lopsided, as well. It electrified the sports world and launched him into superstardom.

Woods continued his latest comeback on Thursday. He was nearly killed in a one-car wreck near Los Angeles in February 2021. Woods suffered serious injuries and underwent extensive physical rehabilitation. It was initially believed Woods would have trouble walking again, never mind playing a major tournament at a competitive level.

Backing Tiger Leaves You Green

How Much Would You Have Won Betting On Tiger Woods In The Masters? 2

Looking at the numbers, if you'd bet $100 on Woods each time he played the Masters as pro, based on the line closest to the start of the tournament, you would be up a not-so whopping $600 since 1996.

In Woods’ five Masters wins, he went off at +800 (1997), +150 (2001), +200 (2002), +350 (2005) and +1400 (2019). That leaves you with $2,900 in winnings after wagering $2,200 over the past quarter century.

A TICKET UNLIKE ANY OTHER: Masters Ticket Lottery Odds

Hardly the stuff of betting legend, or of golf greatness.

But a profitable and fun ride for sure.

Woods has delivered multiple Masters memories. Some are “better than most.” His roll-in, stop, and drop-in chip shot on 16 in 2005 continues to find its way on the air and across the internet and social media every year. In 2019, Woods avoided the water on the 12th hole during the final round, only to watch those in pursuit splash and crash. He would go on to beat Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele by one shot.

And pay off at +1400.
