Attention golf fans and gambling enthusiasts! Here now, we have a plethora of Tiger Woods stuff, top American player, top amateur, top former champion, first-round leader, top five and top ten finishes, head-to-head matches, the age of the winner, and much, much more.

Naturally, the overwhelming favorite is Tiger. Last night, I tweeted a screenshot of odds from @GolfOdds. The ones below are courtesy of Bovada, via Jimmy Shapiro. What bets catch your eye?

The Open seems to be everyone’s favorite tournament for placing bets — probably because it’s actually legal in the UK and almost ingrained in the culture.

Personally, I don’t think the favorites to win are necessarily good reference points to picking. Sometimes they are, but links golf isn’t as predictable. I haven’t finalized my top picks yet, but my short list includes Lee Westwood, Charl Schwartzel, Francesco Molinari, KJ Choi, Matteo Manassero, Padraig Harrington and perhaps Martin Kaymer. Check back with me tomorrow.

Courtesy of Bodog, below are the odds on players to win the Open, top golfer by country, certain players to finish in the top 10, low-amateur and low senior, the margin of victory, and much, much more (how do they come up with this stuff?).

As Geoff Shackelford noted, Phil Mickelson’s win on Sunday not only passed Tiger Woods in the world rankings, but Lefty also became the betting favorite. I certainly sign off on Mickelson being the favorite (at a reasonable 8-1), but the second favorite is still Tiger?!? At 10-1?

Let’s play a little game. Let’s say you were given $100 to place a bet on the Masters. At what odds would you feel comfortable taking Tiger, given what else is on the board?
