There’s a 25% chance Tiger Woods will retire this year, according to oddsmakers

Oh, Tiger Woods. What happened to thee? Even the least optimistic among us (looking at you, Brandel Chamblee), would have hoped for better than a missed cut, withdrawal combo in T-Dubbs’ first two starts.

And for the more optimistic among us, Tiger’s garbage performance at the Farmers Insurance Open and back-issue-forced WD at the Dubai Desert Classic, have sent us deep into the waters of the Lake of Confusion. We’re right back to not only not expecting Woods to win again but questioning whether he’ll even be competitive.

In this spirit, the good folks at, have rolled out a list of Tiger Woods prop bets. For the non sharps/gambling addicts among us, I’ll fire up the Official CLICKON Odds Converter to show the implied probability for each. Because, as all hedge fund managers know, percentages rule.
