Tiger Woods has a difficult week, however he was so good for so long at Torrey Pines that YouWager bettors didn’t seem to mind how things were turning out in the end.
Right at the end Woods built an eight-shot lead with five holes to play yesterday until he lost patience with the slow play and started losing shots that only determined the margin of his win.
Woods managed to win for the 75th time in his PGA Tour career, seven behind the record held by Sam Snead.
The 37 year-old player won this tournament for the seventh time, and he set a PGA Tour record by winning at Torrey Pines for the eighth time, including his 2008 U.S. Open. In addition, he also has won seven times at Bay Hill and at Firestone.
This was the 23rd time Woods has won by at least four shots on the PGA Tour. Defending champion Brandt Snedeker (69) and Josh Teater (69) tied for the second. Watney had a 71 and tied for fourth with Jimmy Walker.
Online sports betting experts consider this was a solid statement for Woods, who was coming off a missed cut last week in Abu Dhabi. This was the second time in his career that the pro golfer won in his next tournament after missing the cut, however it hadn’t happened before that this happened the following week.
Abu Dhabi is now in the past and now the question seems to be what kind of season will Woods have.
