2009 Masters: Chad Campbell odds slashed, Woods at 3/1

 The rule of thumb with major golf tournaments in the recent years - don't rule out Tiger Woods until the very end, but the 2009 Masters may turn out to be a different story. Chad Campbell has impressed fans and odds makers to the point where he is now the favorite to win the 2009 Masters with the popular online sportsbook BodogSports after the first round of the major golf tourney. It's far from uncommon to see Tiger Woods trailing in the opening round of the tournaments, but what we haven't seen in a long, long time is his odds changing in such a way after just one round.

 At the BodogSports betting website the odds on Tiger Woods to win the 2009 Masters went from 7/4 yesterday to 3/1 today! Meanwhile the odds on Chad Campbell to win the 2009 Masters Golf Tournament were slashed from 100/1 on the day of the opening round to the shocking 7/4 today! For those of you who have followed the betting odds on the golf tournaments such odds change is clearly a shock. Not to mention that at the time of writing, Chad Campbell was at total -10 and -3 today at No.11, while Tiger Woods was at No.6 with -3 total and one under so far in the second round. Even Furyk, who was yet to tee off today and sitting on -6 total is holding odds 9/1 to win the 2009 Masters. Clearly a great opportunity for those bettors put off initially by the Tiger Woods extra short odds to jump back into the game and take advantage of the long odds offered on Campbell's competition.
