Tiger Woods captured his fifth green jacket at the Masters in thrilling fashion, but it appears he might not be done yet.
The superstar golfer is now favored to win the PGA Championship, the U.S. Open, and Open Championship, according to FanDuel SportsBook.
Tiger's odds are (+850) to win the PGA Championship, (+950) to win the U.S. Open and (+950) to win the Open Championship. He's won four PGA Championships, three U.S. Opens and three Open Championships. Considering how well Tiger played at the Masters, it's no surprise he's now the presumptive favorite to take home some more majors this year.
As things currently stand, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy are Tiger's biggest competition in terms of odds. Johnson and McIlroy are tied for the second-best odds to win the PGA Championship (+950) and Johnson is tied with Tiger in the lead for the U.S. Open at (+950). As for the Open Championship, McIlroy (+1100) narrowly edges out Johnson (+1200).
Meanwhile, Tiger's primary competition heading into Sunday at the Masters, Francesco Molinari, is opening at +2400 to win the PGA Championship, and +1700 to win the Open Championship. He won the Open last year.
Brooks Koepka, who finished second at the Masters and won the PGA Championship last year over Tiger, is (+1500) to repeat.
It was a thrilling victory from Tiger on Sunday afternoon in Augusta. If the most recent odds are any indication, Tiger could be adding more titles to his collection in the coming months.
