Because of Tiger Woods’ continued popularity, sportsbooks always offer a huge number of Tiger Woods prop bets, especially for the four Major tournaments: the Masters, PGA Championship, US Open and British Open. Those bets are among the most popular with bettors and range from Greens in Regulation to playing in the final group on Sunday to whether he’ll make a hole in one or post the best round of the tournament.
Tiger Woods US Open Prop Bets 2019
Tiger Woods buzz is back in 2019, thanks in large part to his win at the Masters, his first major in more than a decade. Tiger Woods US Open prop bets in 2019 include everything from him playing in the final group on Sunday to missing the cut. You can also bet on him to lead after Round 3, post the best 18-hole score and beat Rory McIlroy head-to-head.
These are the best bets and why you should make them:
Over 10.5 Greens in Regulation Round 1 (+100)
Woods may have continued issues with his driver, but when he comes to hitting greens in regulation he’s enjoying the best season of his career. His 73 percent rate leads the PGA Tour; he hit 66.7 in his last start at the Memorial, and 81 percent on his way to winning the Masters.
For the bet to pay off at Pebble he’d need to hit 11 of 18 greens in Round 1, or a little over 61 percent, which is well within his capabilities.
Best 18-Hole Round Score (+1600)
This is not the same Tiger nor the same Pebble Beach that we saw 19 years ago when he dominated the U.S. Open in 2000. The course has tightened and Tiger’s travails have been well-documented.
As the U.S. Open returns to Pebble Beach, Woods with +1100 odds isn’t the favorite to win—that role belongs to Dustin Johnson. However, the setup in 2019 is expected to closely mimic that of 2009, where Graeme McDowell won at par.
But even that year, Woods threw down a Saturday 66 that tied for the low round of the tournament. Like Augusta, Pebble is one of those places where he knows every bump and hollow, and he can go very low even if he’s out of contention for the win.
Lead After Round 3 (+1400)
Unless he’s turning in one of those epic wire-to-wire masterpieces, Woods historically hasn’t been the kind of player who leads from the front. He’s a closer, and great one, which means he makes his move on the weekend. Woods’ resume is full of strong Saturday rounds that have vaulted him into contention, making Round 3 the best bet to find Tiger finishing the day atop the leaderboard.
Play in the Final Group in Round 4 (+700)
If you’re keen to wager on Tiger being in the lead after Round 3, it makes sense to double down. At the Masters, Woods went out in the final group of a major championship for the first time in over a decade, although he needed some help from the weather—which led officials to place players out in threesomes—to do it. The bet still paid the same.
Miss the Cut (+375)
And then there’s the opposite end of the spectrum, which Woods experienced in the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black, where he missed the cut despite entering as the odds favorite. It was just the 10th time in 83 majors that Woods had missed the cut, with most of those trunk-slammers coming in the years he battled injuries.
Everything looked great on those wide, forgiving Augusta fairways, but once things were tightened up — gulp.
Woods vs. Rory McIlroy (+135)
This head-to-head bet might seem like a mismatch, given that McIlroy is playing more consistent week-to-week golf than anyone else in the game, and is coming off a runaway victory at the Canadian Open.
But his track record at Pebble Beach is short and unimpressive: two starts, two missed cuts. McIlroy has played the AT&T Pro-Am just once, in 2018, and missed the cut — just as he did in the 2010 U.S. Open on the same course.
Woods and Brooks Koepka to Both Finish Top 10 (+350)
It’s a dynamic duo: the player who turned in the best ever performance at Pebble Beach, with the player who’s playing better in majors than anyone else. Koepka is on a historic roll, owning back-to-back titles in both the U.S. Open and PGA Championship, and trying to become the first player since the early 1900s to win three straight Opens.
Only once in his last five majors has Koepka finished worse than second. Not a bad option for a combo bet.
Either Woods or Dustin Johnson to win (+425)
If you’re looking for a different combo bet, hard to go wrong with a couple of players who clearly know their way around the golf course. In addition to Woods’ 2000 U.S. Open title, Johnson has a pair of regular tour wins at Pebble, and would have earned his first major there if not for a final-round collapse in 2010 that handed the trophy to McDowell.
That experience clearly toughened the South Carolinian, who has finished fourth or better in four of his last five U.S. Opens.
