Odds Analysis

Tiger Woods +1215

He hasn’t played a competitive round since his Masters title, but you have to like his chances after getting the elusive 15th major championship of his career. Woods elected to rest in between starts and it makes me believe he’s going all out for another title in his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus. One of his major titles was here at Bethpage Black when he won the 2002 U.S. Open. During his career Woods has gone major to major six times, finishing outside the top 25 on three occasions with a MC. He also won twice.

Brooks Koepka +1215

One of a few players to compete at the Byron Nelson last week, Koepka finished strong ahead of his title defense. His play in recent majors also bodes well for his chances. Since 2014 he’s more than one-quarter of a shot per round better than any player. However, while most of the field didn’t play last week, Koepka had sponsor commitments and was solo fourth in Dallas. He scored all four rounds in the 60s and his ball striking was strong, giving backers plenty of hope.

Phil Mickelson +9050

Recent form hasn’t been strong, but don’t count Mickelson out of any major. And considering his history at Bethpage Black, it’s hard not to drop a few bucks on Lefty at his current price. He was runner-up at both U.S. Opens held on this course and he’s gained multiple strokes over the field in 12 of 16 career rounds played on this track. “I really do love Bethpage. I love golf in this area,” Mickelson said. He also expressed similar thoughts about Pebble Beach back in February and we know how that turned out for him.

Jordan Spieth +6650

Could the possibility of winning the career Grand Slam be enough to break Spieth out of his slump? It’s his third attempt at becoming the sixth player to win all four major championships and this may be the least likely given his recent poor play. There were signs last week that maybe Spieth’s game has returned. He scored three rounds in the 60 at the Byron Nelson before a final 71 moved him to T29, leaving him without a top-20 finish this year.

Course: Bethpage State Park Black Course – 7,432 yards, Par 70

One of the finest public courses in the country, Bethpage Black stretches out to nearly 7,450 yards and plays at par 70. The course is long so golfers better bring their drivers and be dialed in on their irons. Three par 3s are distanced at over 200 yards and seven par 4s will play over 460 yards. There are narrow driving lanes off the tee and the elevated greens are guarded by a number of sand traps. It’s better to attack through the air, but everyone is going to experience some time on the beach, that’s just what happens on this layout. There is a sign near the first tee box that warns only “highly skilled” golfers should play the Black Course.
