The 2020 FedExCup Playoffs begin this week with The Northern Trust at TPC Boston and Tiger Woods will be part of the 125-man field. Tiger enters the week ranked 49th in the FedExCup season-long standings with one victory and one other top 10 in five events this season.
Below, we look at Tiger Woods’ odds to win the 2020 Northern Trust and his most interesting prop bets for this week’s PGA Tour event.
Tiger Woods’ history at TPC Boston
Woods won the 2006 Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston, and he was a co-runner-up in both 2004 and 2007. He most recently played here in 2018 and finished T-24 in the Dell Technologies Championship as the second FedExCup Playoffs event. He was third in 2012 and finished T-11 in 2010.
No one in this week’s field has gained more strokes per round than Tiger’s 2.90 across 36 career rounds played at TPC Boston, according to Data Golf.
The 2007 and 2009 FedExCup champion has won four FEC Playoffs events in his career, most recently the 2018 Tour Championship at East Lake.

Tiger is +4000 to win the Northern Trust, sharing just the 16th-best odds with Hideki Matsuyama and Paul Casey. He enters the week ninth in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings and is therefore the ninth-best golfer in the field.
He’s averaging 1.03 Strokes Gained: Approach and 1.10 SG: Tee-to-Green per round. His driver and putter have been the weakest areas of his game this season, but he was always an above-average putter on the Bentgrass greens of TPC Boston.

Top-10 finish: +350
Sitting 49th in the FEC standings, Tiger is fairly safe to advance to next week’s BMW Championship, but he’ll need a couple of strong results to crack the top 30 and qualify for the 2020 Tour Championship at East Lake.
His dominant course history, still-strong iron play, world ranking, and this added motivation all factor together in making him a good pick to crack the top 10 for the first time in four events since a ninth-place finish at the Farmers Insurance Open. The smaller 125-man field also makes this a better bet.
Leader after 1st round: +4500
Tiger’s odds actually rise from the +4000 to win outright to +4500 to lead after the opening 18 holes. He opened the PGA Championship with a 2-under 68 to sit three shots off the lead. He broke par in each of his five official events this season.
