Golf Odds: British Open 2010 Odds?

The 2010 British Open will take place in St. Andrews July 15-18th 2010, and despite starting this PGA Tour season with six consecutive losses, Tiger Woods is still the favorite to win the 2010 British Open Betting Odds. The last time Tiger lost eight starts in a row was in 1998. Woods has had some nice wins at St. Andrews in 2000 and 2005.

Do you think Charl Schwartzel is any chance of winning the British Open 2010? The latest issue of Golf Digest has a great article about him, giving him much praise.

Online sportsbooks have opened with Phil Mickelson as a 10-1 betting choice British Open 2010 predictions, which begins on Thursday from the Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland. Mickelson is currently 2nd on the Official World Golf Ranking just a fraction behind long time rival Tiger Woods, who is the betting favorite in odds to win The Open at 5-1. Mickelson has made the cut in 12 out of 13 events entered this year and has 1 win, which was at The Masters. He has also finished 2nd at the Quail Hollow Championship, 4th at the US Open, and 5th at The Memorial.

Tiger Woods is the top favorite for the event, simply because of his natural ability to get hot and hit any type of shot especially his trademark low stinger. However, hes not as strong of a play for the 2009 Open Championship odds as he normally is. Hes struggled off the tee all season and Turnberry will punish poor tee shots, especially if the conditions are windy. For Tiger to succeed, he may want to keep the driver in the bag. Hell scramble all week, but I dont think a win is in the cards.
