laying -170 against Tiger when he is tied for the lead after 2 rounds playing spectacular golf shows that you have down syndrome. Have you spoken to a Doctor Recently?

Cool it..

The thread was inviting opinions, you disagree and need to keep it to yourself.

If Woods shoots even par from here I gotta think he wins.

Course will get faster, tougher pins, pressure etc.

Looking at the top 12-15 guys I think Woods +150 to win is a solid investment.

He may not win but IMO it is a bad bet to lay -170 because long term he should win 50% I would guess.

Either way BOL guys...

i think its an excellent bet.  I certiainly think woods is a big favorite but there are still 25 players that are in contention almost as good as tiger.  if any of those 25 layers gets hot they could fire a rounds that tiger's "solid" play wont cut it.  I am not willing to bet against him but i believe it is a winning bet

only reason I wont take this bet is because I like him and want him to win.  that and he is the best player to ever hit a golf ball. 
on a side note without trying to be racist I think he is good for the black race.  He is a positive role model of which they have so unbelievably few.  GO TIGER

17 players within 5 strokes of the lead, I'm on that action.
-170 is very tasty for a field victory.

Not going to bet for or against him at this point, good for the black race????  And  positive role model???  

You have to low opinion of the black race and to high opinion of tiger woods as a person.   Great golfer obvious shortcomings in the role model department....

-170 is great value especially on a US open course. I'd take 17 guys within 4 shots against any single player every single time. Extreme value if you ask me. All it takes it one bad day off the tee for Tiger -- hell, even a stretch of 4-5 bad tee shots -- and he's staring 5 bogeys down in the face. Never mind that the greens are lightning fast here and will probably only get harder. Winning score very well could be +2 or something

He is not a role model, not to the black race nor to the Asians of which he is half.  Great golfer yes, role model umm, just ask ex wife or his kids or the sponsors that cut him loose.

darn his gold digging ex wife, and who cares, stupid marriages fail at a -450 rate, darn her. And darn his sponsors, who gives a damn about some bullshit corporation trying seperate people from their money. Role model and you bring up corporations, what a joke lol

His kids?  Pretty sure he gives them what they need and instills the same qualities his dad gave him. Ask them and they will tell you how great he is.

*I am not saying Tiger is a good role model, or even a role model, but Tiger acts a lot better than the majority of adults. If kids wanted to be like him, I think its better than them trying to be like that phag lil wayne

Oops, forgot the real simple question. Yes Tiger wins it. I would take him vs the field at the +150 all day long (vs -170)
