|With the golf season just around the corner Sportsbook.com has posted some exciting odds for the months ahead.|
In his career Tiger Woods has won all of golf's majors, the question is, after years of trying - can he win them all in 2006? The major season starts with next month's Masters and all eyes will be on the performances of the Tiger.
Sportsbook.com is offering golf fans the chance to wager on all of golf's biggest story lines - Will Michell Wie break through with her first Major victory this summer? Can Woods lead the US past Europe after the Americans' Ryder Cup drubbing in 2004?
Sportsbook.com has installed Woods as the prohibitive favorite at 5-2 to capture his fifth Masters. Woods currently sits tied for second all-time with Arnold Palmer, two victories behind Jack Nicklaus. Woods' top challengers include Phil Mickelson with odds at 7-1, Ernie Els at 8-1, Vijay Singh at 12-1 and Retief Goosen at 15-1.
Should Woods prevail at Augusta, hype surrounding a possible run at the Grand Slam would hit an all-time high. Odds on Woods completing the feat by winning all four Majors - The Masters, The British Open, The US Open and The PGA Championships - are currently 22-1.
In the women's golf scene, no name looms larger than Michelle Wie's. At just 17 years of age she is primed to be the next great legend in women's golf and should have a breakthrough year in her first season as a pro. Odds on Wie winning at least one Major this year are set at 9-5. Odds on Wie going without a Major are 1-2.
