Masters 3rd Round Odds
Two rounds are complete in the 2010 Masters and Tiger Woods trails Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter by two shots heading into Saturday’s third round.
Woods shot a 2-under 70 on Friday to get to 6-under for the tournament. Poulter and Westwood are in the lead at 8-under for the tournament.
The updated odds have Tiger as a 5/2 favorite to win the 2010 Masters according to oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL. Other short odds are Poulter (4/1), Westwood (9/2), and Phil Mickelson (9/2).
Woods didn’t have a very eventful round on Friday as he birdied three holes and bogied one. He never was much of a threat to take the lead but still played a steady round to stay near the top of the leaderboard. Saturday’s have been good to Woods when he wins the Masters as he has posted two 65’s and a 66 in three of his four Masters victories in the third round.
Poulter has shot a 4-under 68 in his first two rounds of the Masters. On Friday he bogied the 18th an final hole or else he would hold a one-shot lead on the field. Poulter birdied five holes in his round. Poulter has never won a major championship and his best finish in a Masters was 13th back in 2007.
Westwood shot a 3-under 69 on Friday but he was slightly disappointed with his round as he was 10-under for the tournament at one point, but a double bogey on No. 14 dropped him back. Westwood was up and down all day, recording one eagle, six birdies, three bogies, and one double bogey. Westwood is seeking his first major championship win this weekend and his best finish in a Masters was sixth back in 1999.
Mickelson is tied with Woods at 6-under for the tournament after shooting a 1-under 71 on Friday. Mickelson played the front nine at +1, but finished with two birdies on the back nine to finish his round under par.
First round leader, Fred Couples shot a +3 75 on Friday to fall back to 3-under for the tournament. Couples had his odds drop from 10/1 to 60/1 following his round on Friday.
