Woods Favourite To Win First Hole After Side Bet
Tiger Woods is the clear favourite to win the highly anticipated Showdown at Shadow Creek’ against old rival Phil Mickelson.
The 14-time major winner has been made a 1/2 odds-on shot for the pay-per-view clash in Las Vegas with a jaw-dropping $9m up for grabs for the victor.
Mickelson, who struggled for form in the 2nd half of the season and put in a lacklustre display at the Ryder Cup in Paris, is the 13/8 outsider.
Mickelson has however got tongues wagging with a $200,000 side bet that he would birdie the opening hole, but he is chalked up at 3/1 to have even bettered his opponents score by the time they reach the second tee.
The three-time Masters champ may even have made more headlines for his dancing in a US commercial this year than his golf and we are 5/2 to be treated to his suspect moves on the first tee before competition gets under way.
Woods is a 4/5 shot to be leading the contest at the half way point while you can get 100/1 about either player hitting an ace during the match.
