PGA Tour Odds

It was another day of frustration for Tiger Woods who got his second round off to a flying start before becoming unstuck during the final few holes. He will start today at +1, ten strokes off the lead.

Scheffler and Spieth show class, as Woods offers reasons for optimism

Starting their second rounds with shots to find on round 1 leaders Brian Harman and Tony Finau, both Scottie Scheffler and Jordan Spieth showed exactly why they are former major winners as they surged to the top of the leaderboard. 

Scheffler who started yesterday as the slim favorite, got off to a hot start with three birdies in his first seven holes. His progress would be momentarily halted by a dropped shot on the eighth, but the Texan responded with class, posting five birdies on the back nine to end the day on -9.

Joining the world number one on -9 is his fellow Texan, Jordan Spieth. Spieth’s round of 67 displayed none of the drama that we are so 

accustomed to seeing. Able to keep his card blemish free, he will be hoping for more of the same today.

For a brief period it looked as if Tiger Woods was on the verge of making one of legendary charges. Starting his second round on +3, Woods quickly found himself back in the red numbers following four birdies through his first seven holes. 

With Woods starting to look formidable, disaster was sadly just around the corner, with Woods dropping shots on the 13th , 15th and 16th  to end the day at +1.

Despite his late struggles, it was another day of progress for the fifteen time major winner and he will have serious hopes of shooting a low score today. 

Round 3 Betting Preview 

It’s all to play for in the 2023 Hero World Challenge as eight players will tee off within five strokes of the lead. 

Scottie Scheffler has maintained his place at the top of the betting following his superb second round 66.

Looking for a first win since the 2023 Players Championship, Scheffler has found himself in this position numerous times this year but has often come unstuck during the third round. Everyone in the field will be hoping that trend continues today. 

Jordan Spieth comes next in the betting. Yesterday’s second round showed what a great player he is when able to keep the ball on the fairway. Bogey free rounds like yesterday are a rare occurrence, and it will be fascinating to see how he plays today with the world number one alongside him. 

Collin Morikawa and Justin Thomas complete the top three in the betting. 

Collin Morikawa finds himself three behind following his second successive round of 69. Unable to fully capitalise on some of his good golf, he will need to keep the mistakes to a minimum today. 

Justin Thomas looks to have rediscovered his swing after a desperately disappointing season. Just two shots back, victory this weekend would be the perfect tonic and would set him up nicely to return to the highest level of the game. 

Round 1 leaders Brian Harman and Tony Finau will start today one and three shots back respectively. Both will be capable of making another charge.
