We get a rare bit of early week big name golf on Tuesday as Tiger Woods hosts a Ryder Cup-style charity match at his new golf course in Ridgedale, Missouri. Payne’s Valley at Big Cedar Lodge is the first public course Woods has designed, and he wants to open it with some pomp and circumstance.
Woods will pair with Justin Thomas against Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose. The foursome will tee off at 3 p.m. ET, with the tournament airing on Golf Channel. You can check out a live online stream of the event on fuboTV with a free trial.
The group will be playing a mix of four ball, foursomes and singles matches, and maybe most important, they’ll be mic’d up for the event. Golf can bring some great banter, and a charity event where the stakes aren’t nearly as high can be even more fun.
The course is named in honor of the late Payne Stewart and benefits from the event will go toward the Payne Stewart Family Foundation.
DraftKings Sportsbook is offering a host of odds around the event. Woods and Thomas are the favorites at -125, while McIlroy and Rose are +100. Considering Woods designed the course, one would think he has a little bit of an edge.
The book is also offering odds on winners in foursome and fourball play. Finally, you can bet on various hole specials. Pre-match you can bet on the Hole 1 winner and various results for the first hole. Once the event gets going, there should be plenty of in-game wagering opportunities for ensuing holes.
