With Tiger Woods set to make another much-anticipated return to the golf course this weekend, oddsmakers aren't giving him much of a chance to come away with a victory.

Woods, who's coming off his fourth back surgery, has been given 40/1 odds to win the Hero World Challenge - an event in the Bahamas in which he'll also be hosting.

While Woods will likely be the focus of the event, the 18-man field is stacked with golf's biggest names, and the top three players in the world are co-favored to win.
