Will Hill takes £30,000 bet on Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods' win at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational was enough to convince one heavy UK punter that this week's PGA Championship will be the major that ends the drought for the No. 1 ranked player in the world.

Graham Sharpe, media relations director at William Hill in England, Tweeted this:

Woods has now failed to win a major in his last 17 tries heading into the final major of 2013, the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y.

These are some of the lowest odds Woods has seen in a recent major and was set as high as 7-1 at the Las Vegas Hotel on July 23. His dominating 7-shot win on the weekend bumped his odds to the 4-1 range at most books.

Woods shot 12-over par at Oak Hill at the 2003 PGA Championship, which was his second-worst 72-hole score at a major of his career. It was his only competitive tournament at the course.

At 9/2 there is some value with the bet but at 7/2 there is no value in my opinion especially with so many great players on the board. Mickelson at 14 to 1 and Scott at 18 to 1 are better plays. The way to play this at no real value is to lay $1000 on Woods Then lay $1000, on Mickelson and another $1000 on Scott. If Woods wins he basically gets you cash back for you but if he doesn't then you have 2 other chances with a lot of value on good golfers that could win this tournment. I really like Scott in this tournament & at 18 to 1 odds that is great value. Mickelson on the other hand can sometimes play bad and when he does he usually does real bad. You will know in the first 2 rounds.
