Current Odds to Win 2010 British Open - Tiger Woods Prohibitive Favorite
Despite the round the clock media coverage of Tiger Woods and all of his "problems" off the course, one thing remains the same. Tiger Woods is favored to win yet another tournament. This time, it's the British Open at St Andrews where he has won the last two times the Open was held there, in 200 and 2005.
During a recent press conference for the British Open, about 50% of the 30 or so questions Tiger was asked pertained to his divorce as well as reported steroids use and his connection to a Canadian Doctor.
The current odds on Tiger Woods to win the British Open are around 4/1 at most sportsbooks. Imagine what the price would be if Woods wasn't involved with this constant media circus?

Here is a look at the rest of the field and their current odds to win the
British Open - Odds Courtesy of
Phil Mickelson (15/1)
Lefty can move up to world No. 1 for the first time in his career with a win. Mickelson won the Masters this year, but always struggles at the British Open. His best finish was a third in 2004, his only top-10 in his career.
Ernie Els (15/1)
Els already has a British Open title under his belt (2002). He has two wins on the PGA Tour this year and always seems to play well at this event. That’s evidenced by four straight top-10 finishes and 12 of 19 overall.
Justin Rose (15/1)
Rose is not that big of a name and has limited success in majors. However, the almost 30-year-old won the Memorial and the AT&T National this season. He’s also paired with Tiger for the first two rounds. These odds seem a little optimistic though.
Lee Westwood (15/1)
Westwood had top-3 finishes in consecutive majors before a 16th at this year’s U.S. Open. That included a third at the British Open last year when it looked like he may win. He needs to get over the hump and this could be the week.
Rory McIlroy (15/1)
The 21-year-old from Northern Ireland is considered the best young golfer in the game. He had a third at the PGA Championship last year, but missed the cut in the first two majors this year. He also finished 47th at last year’s British Open.
