Last year golf betting gamblers watched as Andrew Buckle and Jeff Quinney had at least a share of the lead on the back nine. Both stumbled and Woods shot past them. Charles Howell III provided the final challenge with three birdies in a four-hole stretch, but Woods birdied the 17th to put things away. Gamblers that made a golf bet remember that Howell did have a 50-foot eagle putt on the 18th that could have forced a playoff but it never had a chance. Golf betting gamblers know that Woods finished at 15-under 273 for his 55th career victory.
