How to bet Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship: Odds to win & prop bets
Tiger Woods will try to win the PGA Championship for a record-tying fifth time this week at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, California. A win would also give him the PGA Tour's all-time record with 83, and it would move him to within two major wins of Jack Nicklaus' record 18. Below, we look at the best bets for Tiger Woods at the 2020 PGA Championship.

Tiger Woods' history at TPC Harding Park
Few in this field have any sort of experience at TPC Harding Park, which will host a PGA Tour major for the first time. Woods won the last stroke play event played here: The 2005 WGC-American Express Championship, winning in a playoff over John Daly.
He was also a member of the winning U.S. team at the 2009 Presidents Cup played here.
Tiger Woods' odds to win the PGA Championship
Woods is +3300 to win the PGA Championship. He's 10th by the betting odds in one of the strongest PGA Tour fields we'll see in 2020. Tiger enters this week ranked eighth by the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings and ranks eighth in the field. It's a rare instance of him actually being slightly underpriced to win.
Tiger regularly draws an overabundance of betting action. He was easily the most-heavily bet golfer at the Memorial Tournament ahead of his disappointing T-40 finish.
If you like to bet Tiger, this will likely be your best opportunity this year. He's only +1600 to win the US Open and +1400 to win the Masters.
Best props on Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship
Top 10 finish: +250
Based on Woods' relative rank in the Golfweek world rankings in this field, he should finish in the top 10. Outside of his 2019 Masters win, his last best result in a major was a runner-up at the 2018 PGA Championship.
The rough is less penal here than at the US Open and his wayward tee shots from the Memorial won't be as detrimental.
To have a bogey-free round: +500
This one draws a PASS. This is a major and the course will play tough. It has been renovated and lengthened considerably since it last hosted a PGA Tour event. The tight greenside bunkers and tree-lined fairways will also provide plenty of opportunities for high scores.
Top American: +2000
Of the top golfers in the field with meaningful experience at TPC Harding Park, two - Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott - come from outside the US. Justin Thomas (+600) and two-time defending champ Brooks Koepka (+750) pose the biggest threat to Woods' chances from his home country. Back the experience for a 20-1 return.
Top 5 after 1st round: +800
Woods was five shots back of leader Tony Finau after the opening round of the Memorial following a 71. He was also five shots back of Matt Kuchar after the first round The Genesis Invitational before falling to 68th with a disappointing weekend.
He has had a couple weeks off to rest the back and his best golf is most likely to come earlier in the week.
To make the cut: -223
The reigning Masters champ missed the cut in two of four majors last year, including the PGA Championship but also has a total of three top-10 finishes in his last eight majors. He hasn't missed a cut since the 2019 Open Championship.
He's a safe bet to be within the top 65 and ties at the end of Round 2.
