Tiger Woods Biggest Long Shot Of Career At Farmers Insurance Open

Tiger Woods Biggest Long Shot Of Career At Farmers Insurance Open
After arguably the worst tournament of his career, including a career-high round of 82 last Friday at the Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale, Tiger Woods is back in action this week at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines outside San Diego.

Tiger has won eight times on that course, including his last major, the 2008 U.S. Open, when he beat Rocco Mediate in a 19-hole Monday playoff. Yet despite Tiger’s past success. Woods is a 30/1 long shot at Bovada to win this week’s tournament, which is the longest odds Tiger has had since turning pro. For just the second time in his professional career last week, Woods failed to break 80. The missed cut was just the 13th time worldwide that he failed to qualify for the final 36 holes and the first time he has done so in back-to-back official tournaments. Woods also matched his career-high worst nine-hole score of 44. Woods’ only other score in the 80s came at the 2002 Open Championship in the third round at Muirfield. Woods has not finished in the top 20 in any of his past nine events. Before this stretch, his career-worst drought without a top-20 finish was four — from the 2010 AT&T National through the 2010 PGA Championship. Tiger dropped to No. 56 in Monday’s world rankings. Woods has not been lower than 58th in the world since winning the first of his 79 titles on the PGA Tour at the Las Vegas Invitational in October 1996. It’s a strong field this week with 13 of the world’s top 25 in action. Phil Mickelson has won three times at Torrey Pines but he also missed the cut last week. Here are Bovada’s odds on the favorites on a comment. Jordan Spieth (11/1): He finished T7 last week. Spieth played his way into the final group of the third round a year ago at Torrey Pines, but faded with 75-75 over the weekend to finish T-19. Jason Day (14/1): The Aussie was a runner-up last year in this tournament and he also finished T-9 in 2013 when he closed with a 66 on the South Course. Day started the year strong with a T-3 at the winners-only event at Kapalua but hasn’t played since. Jimmy Walker (14/1): He is playing  for the first time since his nine-shot win at the Sony Open in mid-January. While he missed the cut last year, Walker was T-4 at Torrey in 2013 and T-8 the year prior. Hideki Matsuyama (20/1): Shared second place at TPC Scottsdale, one stroke back. Four top threes in last eight starts worldwide. T16 in debut here last year. Justin Rose (22/1): First official start on U.S. soil since T4 at TOUR Championship. Opened 2015 with a pair of top 15s on the European Tour’s Gulf Swing. Rickie Fowler (22/1): Finished in the middle of the pack last week in Phoenix and missed the cut at Torrey Pines last year, but his record in San Diego prior to 2014 is worth note: four straight top-20 finishes, including a T-5 in 2010 and a T-6 in 2013.
