Scottie Scheffler has cooled off after his absolutely torrid stretch where he won four tournaments in 10 weeks, but the world’s No. one is still as safe of a pick as you can make any given week.
Statistically he has no weakness in any part of his game. He is also completely unflappable mentally. Scheffler is a very patient, deliberate and meticulous player who is going to be able to plod his way around St. Andrew’s while avoiding mistakes.
He finished T8 in The Open Championship last year and there is no doubt he will be right in contention once again this July.
Admittedly these are terrible odds for Tiger who should probably be closer to 100-1, but it is Tiger Woods — the best golfer of all time — and we will never count him out.
We had a bet on him in his last major at the Masters just to make the cut, and against all odds he was able to do that only months after his serious car accident.
He also made the cut at the PGA Championship before withdrawing after the third round — but the Big Cat’s eye has always been on the The Open Championship during this recovery tour.
St. Andrews is a short, flat course that is very easily walkable unlike Augusta, and it’s a course that he knows very well — already having won two Open Championships here during his career.
Woods had no chance to win at Augusta or the PGA Championship, but now that he is a year and a half past his accident, he is primed to not only make the cut at a major but now finally contend.
It would be naive to doubt the man who has overcome all inconceivable odds many times in his career and it’s not a mistake we are willing to make. Tiger Woods at +4100 is the best longshot of this tournament and if you want to avoid massive buyer’s remorse — he should be a ticket you have in your Open Championship portfolio as well.
