Hardly. Less than 5%
20%. Winning at Torrey Pines to open the season has to be a confidence builder. (of course, he and Rory both missed the cut at Abu Dhabi, too. So who knows!)

"Academics is important, because without them....you aren't allowed to play!"
There is no chance you'd bet me 20-1 on that.
i think he does it. so 90%

100%. We're back!
50% I think he's due (and healthy again).
Vegas has him at 9/2 to win the Masters, and he was at 6/1 before Torrey. I'd drop everything to fly to Vegas to bet on Tiger at 19/1 for just the Masters, much less any of the majors.
I'll say 25%, he's going to win at least one.
I'm seeing 4/1 on vegasinsider.com for the Masters. If he was 4/1 in all four, then obviously he'd be "supposed" to win one. That's not gonna happen, though.
I'll go with a nice boring 50%.

I think it's around 25-30% I would bet 100 to win 400 and I sure as hell would load up to bet 100 to 2k. 5% lol. Guy is the clear #2 player in the world right now.
Tiger is tremendously overbet. Vegas lines do not reflect real life odds.
4-1 is a bad bet. He has 14 wins in 66 starts, so he has won once every 4.7. Factor in both the fact that he only finished in the top 10 once last year, hasn't won in his last 14 appearances (although his fans would argue that this just means he is due), and you have to think at best he is about 10-1 for each individual major.
william hill has it at 2/1 which seems kind of crazy.
12/ british open
10/ us open
pinnacle is closer to 4/1
i think he wins one, ill go 100%
If I were going to bet on Tiger to win any of the Major's right before each major begins, the odds would need to be at least 9-1 for me to risk any real money (not talking $50 here). There are too many good golfers on tour and so many variables that come into play over a 4 day period it is just crazy unless you are going to get some very nice odds.
That said, I believe he will win at least 1 major this year. So to answer Hogie's question, I guess I am saying it is 100% he wins a major this year.
He just won this past weekend.
Coasted to it I might add.

"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
50%. He will win the masters..bet on it.
I assume WMTerp was talking about majors only.
Well I was only talking about majors, he's won other events since then too. I think he honestly is having the "reverse" tiger effect right now, he's completely in his own head at these events.
He has a great chance of winning at least one
Detroit Hustles Harder
I'd lay you 4-1.
No question that's the most likely. Next to Torrey pines, it's likely his most successful location.
Merion will not be much of an advantage for tiger.
Woods did not perform well at muirfield in 2002.
Oak hill does not play to his strengths.
If tiger does win, I think it will come at Augusta but I can't rule out muirfield. If given a prop bet, I would lean against him, depending on the odds, of course. He's lost a major weapon. Just seeing his ame on the leader board made people quiver. Those days are gone. What remains to be seen is if he has the same intensity and killer instinct that made him the best player in the world.
My lean is that he does not win a major this year but that is slight until after the masters. If he doesn't win that one, I'd put his chances in the 5-10% range.
About 20%. I'd take Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Keegan Bradley, or Louis Oousthuizen over him if the bet was picking one guy to win a major this year.
