AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Add another list of numbers to show how much has changed in the world of Tiger Woods.
Geoff Ogilvy ran across a bookmaker's odds for the Bridgestone Invitational when he noticed Woods at 20-to-1. This would only be startling because Woods hasn't competed in three months while letting injuries to his left leg fully heal. In this case, however, Ogilvy considered that Woods has won a record seven times at Firestone, and until last year and never finished worse than fifth.
"Did you think you could ever get Tiger at Firestone at 20-1? Ever?" Ogilvy said to one of the caddies. "He was on 2-to-1 for a while."
Then he paused on the putting green, which was filled with players getting ready for a World Golf Championship that starts on Thursday.
"It's been an odd year," Ogilvy said.
