Tiger Woods is plot from the potentialities-on favorite to snatch the 2020 U.S. Open, however the 15-time predominant champion is a most unusual hang.
Fixed with ESPN’s David Purdum, 18 percent of the money placed on the U.S. Open at William Hill sportsbooks is centered on Woods, who’s listed at 40-1.
Not surprisingly, Dustin Johnson (17-2) has primarily the most efficient odds. Johnson won the Tour Championship earlier this month and hasn’t executed lower than second in any of his past four events.
Somebody backing Woods is doing so practically fully for sentimental reasons or thanks to his reputation.
The 44-Three hundred and sixty five days-faded got off to a solid beginning this season, a hit the Zozo Championship before high-10 showings in the Hero World Mission and Farmers Insurance coverage Open. Then he did now not space any greater than 37th in his 5 subsequent tournaments.
The Athletic’s Matthew Gutierrez wrote how inserting has been an scenario for Woods, something that is essential for the rationale that greens at Winged Foot Golf Membership may now now not be very forgiving:
“Or now now not it is all about the flat stick, and that’s the rationale where Woods has fallen woefully quick. He misplaced 14.6 photos to the field in inserting in the lately concluded season, a pick that would possess ranked 183rd on tour. At the PGA Championship, Woods swapped out his traditional putter for a mannequin with a a small longer shaft to alleviate strain on his surgically repaired help. The outcomes weren’t great diversified.”
If Woods goes on to snatch, a gamble at 40-1 odds will mean a pretty wholesome payday. Extra seemingly than now now not, William Hill sportsbooks will seemingly be laughing the total vogue to the bank.
