Tiger Woods Becoming Popular in Golf Again

Tiger Woods is once again becoming a popular name in golf. While he never completely disappeared from the public consciousness, Woods’ extended layoff from the game while recovering from back surgery has seen other names such as Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth emerge.
After a return at the Hero World Challenge, however, Tiger is once more a popular topic of conversation. So popular, in fact, that Las Vegas sportsbooks report a healthy amount of wagering on his chances to win the Masters in April. Beginning as a 50-1 underdog to win the event, so many people have bet on Woods that bookmakers have reduced that number to 20-1. Overall, Woods leads the amount of money wagered.
Recently celebrating his 41st birthday, Woods is still chasing the 18 majors win record held by Jack Nicklaus. His last major championship victory came in 2008 at the U.S. Open.
