FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – As the wagers keep pouring in, Tiger Woods is once again the betting favorite for this week’s PGA Championship.

Woods opened as an 8/1 favorite when the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook first published odds after last month’s Masters, where Woods captured his 15th career major. But entering this week his odds had drifted back to 10/1, where he shared co-favorite status with world No. 1 Dustin Johnson and defending champ Brooks Koepka.

Woods is now back out in front, thanks in large part to the single biggest wager the Westgate has received for Bethpage: a $10,000 bet on Woods at 10/1 that would net a $100,000 profit. He’s now back to 8/1, followed by Johnson and Koepka.
