Tiger Woods Win a 2019 Major?
I think the answer is no – I think in a super-talented field at a major coupled with the pressures of Tigermania over four days will prevent him from a victory. But the odds on YES are just too good not to throw down a few bucks in the hopes that it pays off. – Charles Curtis
In 2018, Woods briefly led the Open Championship on Sunday and finished second at the PGA. This year, Woods will return to Bethpage Black for the PGA Championship – where he won the 2002 U.S. Open, and to Pebble Beach for the U.S. Open, the site of Woods’ 15-shot victory in 2000. YES, this is the year Woods gets No. 15. – Nick Schwartz
Will Tiger Woods win a tournament in 2019?
YES. You have to be encouraged by what you saw out of Woods to close out 2018 in the BMW Championship (6th) and Tour Championship (a win). I bet he gets a W in the early slate – maybe the Honda Classic or Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he’s won a bunch. – CC
No doubt. YES. – NS
Will Tiger Woods win multiple tournaments in 2019?
NO. We have no odds to go off of, but maybe it’s Woods’s age that makes me think he gets one win, a bunch of top-10s, a smattering of top-5s and maybe a T2 or two for the year.
Playing in his first full season in four years – with a fused back, no less – Woods was a few bad putting days away from bagging three or four victories last season. He contended early and often throughout the year, and if Tiger can regain the putting form that won him so many tournaments in his prime, there’s no reason to believe that Woods can’t rattle off a few wins in 2019. His game needs small tweaks, not major revisions. Going with a comfortable YES. – NS
Will Tiger Woods ever regain the world No. 1 ranking?
NO. There’s too much talent in the top-5 who he won’t be able to overtake. Brooks Koepka is in his prime, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas continue to impress and Bryson DeChambeau enters 2019 white-hot. I think he’ll get as high as No. 6. – CC
NO chance. As Charles noted, the field is simply too tough in 2019, and Woods (currently No. 13) claims that he’ll be playing fewer tournaments this season – a trend we can expect to continue as Woods gets older. – NS
Will Tiger Woods ever match or break Jack Nicklaus’ major record?
17.5 Over 11/1
17.5 Under 25/1
18.5 Over 25/1
18.5 Under 1/150
UNDER ON BOTH. He’s 43 now. It’s ultra-rare that 40-plus players win majors, particularly recently. You really expect him to win five more? Where can I put a chunk of my life savings down on this? – CC
UNDER ON BOTH. If Woods picks up multiple major titles this season, we can reconsider, but time is now Woods’ greatest enemy in his race to catch Jack. Woods proved in 2018 that he’s good enough to win a major against the best fields in golf, but how many more chances will he realistically have at the age of 43? – NS
Will Tiger Woods finally add to his major total in 2019?
