Odds To Win The 2010 British Open Championship

Astonishingly—and in spite of his barely making the cut at the AT&T and then dropping a 7-over dud at a pro-am—Tiger Woods is the favorite to win the 2010 Open Championship at St Andrews. And in that sentence is exactly the reason why: It’s at St. Andrews, a course he has absolutely owned over his career. Odds makers have him at 7/1. He won’t win.

Phil Mickelson is the betters’ second favorite, at 12/1. He won’t win either. Nor will Lee Westwood, who’s in at 14/1.

If the oddsmakers have it right, I think a winner is more likely to appear from the next bunch: Padraig Harrington (16/1), Ernie Els (16/1),  Justin Rose (20/1), Ian Poulter (25/1) or maybe even Jim Furyk or Paul Casey at 33/1.
