|There is a momentum about Tiger Woods at present, which has seen him victorious in his last four tournaments, his last equalling Byron Nelson on the all time victory list of 52 career wins. In imperious form, Woods has been tipped to collect his 53rd career win this weekend at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston, with Sportsbook.com installing him as a clear 6/5 favourite. |
'With Tiger, it's not just the fact that he's winning, but its how he's doing it,' said Alex Czajkowski, Sportsbook.com. 'The second place effort by Shaun Micheel (13 under par) at the PGA Championship, would have won the last four PGAs - but Woods crushed him by five strokes.'
Woods’ closest contender this weekend is expected to be the 2003 Deutsche Bank winner Adam Scott at 10/1, closely followed by Vijay Singh at 15/1, and Robert Allenby at 25/1. Defending champion Olin Browne is currently out at 75/1 to retain his title, whilst former world number one David Duval is an outside bet at 150/1.
Woods is seeking his fifth tournament victory in a row, closing in on Sam Snead’s all time record of 82 titles, and 18 majors held by Jack Nicklaus.
