PGA Round Three Odds
Two rounds of the 2009 PGA Championship are in the books and Tiger Woods is beginning to separate himself from the field.
After an opening round 67, Woods followed that up Friday by shooting a 70 to stand alone at -7, four shots ahead of a pack of five golfers in second place at Hazeltine in
After opening with a line of 3/2, Woods is an odds on favorite at 1/5 according to the online sports book SBG Global.
Woods was at one point tied for the lead with Ross Fisher, but three-straight birdies late in his round allowed him to take the four-stroke advantage.
Fisher joins Vijay Singh, Brendan Jones, Lucas Glover, and Padraig Harrington in second place at -3. Of the group, Fisher posted the best second round, shooting a 68 (-4).
Harrington played with Woods once again and finished +1 on the day with a 73. Harrington now has 12/1 odds to win the PGA Championship.
Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood are both at -2 for the tournament, sitting in seventh place.
