The game of golf and golf betting has been revolutionised by one man – Tiger Woods.
He may have slipped off his perch at the top of world golf following his off-course transgressions, but he is still an incredible player with the potential to win any tournament he tees it up in.
Tiger Woods is still a force in golf betting
When he burst onto the scene in 1997 with a record-breaking win at the US Masters, few would have predicted the dominance he would have over the game for the next decade.
Between 1997 and 2008 Woods won an incredible 14 major championships, surpassing the likes of Walter Hagen and Gary Player. It looked like only a matter of time before he surpassed the only golfer who has more majors than him – Jack Nicklaus with 18.
However, a combination of injuries and his off-course problems saw him slip down the world rankings and out of contention for the biggest prizes in golf.
One of the lowest moments came in the 2011 USPGA Championship where he missed the cut by six shots after making yet another comeback from injury.
However, it would take a brave punter to rule Woods out when looking at the golf betting.
If he needs any inspiration, then he need only look as far as Lee Westwood.
The Englishman is once again one of the most feared golfers in the world and even took the crown of World No.1 from Woods. However, at the start of the new Millennium he was struggling for form and slipped to an unbelievable 266 in the world.
Westwood came back better than ever though and there is no reason to suggest Woods can’t do the same and make golf betting more exciting than ever.
