Vegas odds for golfers: Jon Rahm, Tommy Fleetwood, and Francesco Molinari, and the ‘Big Cat’ Tiger Woods. Can Tiger Woods win his first major since the U.S. Open in 2008? Does the young, fiery, Jon Rahm win a major as a Spaniard two years in a row joining 2017 Masters winner Sergio Garcia? How about a European such as Fleetwood or 2018 Open winner Molinari?
Vegas odds for golfers: Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, and Brooks Koepka. This is an absolutely stellar group; Brooks reigning 2-time U.S. Open Champion, Justin Thomas reigning PGA Champion and three-time winner on tour this year, and two-time PGA Champion, Rory McIlroy. The oddball in this group is Rickie Fowler. Fowler at 20-1 odds to win his first major is pretty optimistic. For him to stamp his ticket as one of the greatest golfers, he will have to cash in on his odds.
