Golf Betting: Can Tiger follow up at Olympic?
From there, he romped home to win the penultimate event before the US Open, assuming favouritism for the year's second major as he did.
Joe Dyer, along with the golfing world, was treated to a moment of Tiger Woods back to his best during his Memorial Tournament win, which has propelled him into single figure odds for US Open glory.
Success in golf is often about momentum and timing, and Tiger Woods looks to have lost little of either following victory at the Memorial Tournament on Sunday.
In contention, but not ahead, late on at Jack Nicklaus' invitational tournament, Tiger rolled back the years with some vintage short game wizardry, chipping in from off the green for a birdie on the 16th to spring into the lead.
From there, he romped home to win the penultimate event before the US Open, assuming favouritism for the year's second major as he did so. It was a truly sumptuous shot that recalls his genius chip at the 2005 Masters. Judge for yourself below.
From a high of (19.5), Tiger is now (7.6) to back in Betfair's US Open winner market. Despite showing indifferent form in recent weeks this was actually Woods' second tournament win of the year, following his triumph at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in his last performance before the Masters (where he finished tied 40th).
Moving in the opposite direction in the betting is Rory McIlroy - last year's champion trades at (18.0) from a low of 8.2, alongside Lee Westwood. Between that pair and Tiger is Luke Donald, another two-time winner this season, at (15.5).
The tournament begins on July 14 at the Olympic Club, San Francisco.
