Tiger Woods is not the favorite to win Dubai Desert Classic
Rory McIlroy is favored to win Dubai for the second time in six years.
It feels like this needs a "BREAKING NEWS!" headline beacuse Tiger Woods is playing a golf tournament this week in which he's not the favorite.
Woods is in a group with the favorite, though, because he will be playing with Rory McIlroy and Stephen Gallacher when the threesome tees off Thursday morning at the Dubai Desert Classic.
McIlroy is the favorite, not Gallacher, by the way. Though Gallacher is the defending champ.
Here's a look at the odds:
Rory McIlroy: 7-2
Tiger Woods: 11-2
Henrik Stenson: 11-1
Rafael Cabrera-Bello: 25-1
Thorbjorn Olesen: 25-1
Joost Luiten: 28-1
Peter Hanson: 33-1
Thomas Bjorn: 33-1
According to Jeff Sherman of LVH Superbook, it's the first time Woods hasn't been the favorite since the Abu Dhabi Championship last January. McIlroy was also the favorite there at 9-2, Woods was 7-1.
