It's a big week for golf, with the Memorial Tournament going down at Muirfeld Village Golf Club in Dublin, OH. This event features a loaded field of top golfers, but all eyes will be on Tiger Woods as he plays his first event since February's Genesis Invitational.

With such a high-profile golfer in the field, FanDuel Sportsbook has plenty of Tiger-specific prop bets to consider. This includes an over/under prop on his longest drive of the tournament — set at 320.5 yards.

Luckily for bettors, Bryson DeChambeau may have tipped us off on Wednesday as to which side of the bet to be on.

Tiger certainly doesn't have the length off the tee that he once did, and it's a funny barb from DeChambeau (who leads the tour with an average drive distance of 323.0 yards), but that's valuable information.

The wording of what DeChambeau says is important — he doesn't mention that Tiger got a long drive of 325 yards up, but rather that "he was hitting it," implying that he was getting those drives in with some consistency.

A range of 320-325 only slightly leans to the over of that prop bet, but when that's the range he's hitting consistently, the odds of one of his drives going longer than 320.5 look to be pretty good.
