The Northern Trust Open begins on Thursday and the FedEx Cup Playoffs start with it. Outside of Brooks Koepka dropping out because of an injury, all the big names are taking part in this weekend’s action. All eyes will be on Tiger Woods as he tries to gain some momentum in the 2020 PGA Tour season, but bettors are not as high on Tiger as they usually are.

So far, golf bettors love Collin Morikawa and why wouldn’t they? Morikawa currently accounts for 6% of all tickets and 8% of the total handle put down on The Northern Trust Open via DraftKings Sportsbook. He won the PGA Championship earlier this month with a huge weekend push featuring scores of 65 and 64. At +2500, Morikawa has strong odds for bettors.

After Morikawa, the betting splits feature all of the usual suspects. Jason Day (+2000) is right behind Morikawa with 7% of all cash put down, Matthew Wolff (+2000), Tony Finau (+3500), and Bryson Dechambeau (+1100) all account for 6% of the total handle. Even Rory McIlroy (+1500) and Justin Thomas (+1300) are pulling in a respectable 5%.

Tiger Woods (+4500) is pulling in 4% of all tickets and 4% of all cash. Even though he’s not playing his best golf, the public is almost always going to show faith in Tiger. He’s still the biggest star on the PGA Tour.

With that said, there is definitely something to be said for how he finished up at the PGA Championship. His final-round score of 67 was his best of the weekend and it might be the little bit of momentum he needs to go on a run.

All odds and splits via DraftKings Sportsbook.
