Tiger Woods will play Deutsche Bank and is still the favorite
Tiger Woods is the favorite at the Deutsche Bank Championship but he has company in the form of Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, and Justin Rose.
Tiger Woods added the Deutsche Bank Championship tournament to his official schedule on TigerWoods.com on Tuesday which, for all intents and purposes, solidifies him showing up to play despite a potentially faulty back.
I also don't think Woods would play at all if he thought he was going to have to pull out at any point so I would expect to see the full 72 holes from this weekend.
The bigger issue is what this means for him in the future. Do we really think he's going to win five more majors when only one other man has done it and he apparently has more day-to-day injuries than most Major League Baseball teams?
No, that's a silly notion and one I think we'll look back on and laugh at in 20 years. He'll continue to be Tiger and we'll continue to follow but in terms of majors, it's not happening.
On the flip side of that he's been great in the smaller tournaments and he's once again the favorite at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston this weekend. Here's a look at the full list:
Tiger Woods: 7-1
Adam Scott : 10-1
Phil Mickelson : 12-1
Rory McIlroy : 14-1
Justin Rose : 16-1
Jason Day : 25-1
Webb Simpson : 25-1
Dustin Johnson: 28-1
Jim Furyk : 28-1
Steve Stricker : 28-1
Brandt Snedker: 33-1
Jason Dufner : 33-1
Jordan Spieth: 33-1
Keegan Bradley : 33-1
Matt Kuchar : 33-1
Zach Johnson : 33-1
Charl Schwartzel : 40-1
Hunter Mahan : 40-1
Lee Westwood : 40-1
Welcome to the party, Jordan Spieth! This is the highest he's been all season and with great reason, too. He's been as good as anyone on Tour for the last three months.
This is the best number you've been able to get Woods at all year. I might do it, too. He has a tendency to...uh...dramatize his injuries a bit and heck he almost won last weekend in New Jersey. That 7-1 mark seems pretty tantalizing.
