British Open Odds: Will Tiger Woods Make a Comeback?Published July 19, 2014 by Amir G
The Golf British Open Championship sets the stage for an exciting competition from the world's best golfers.
For the first time since 2006, The British Open Championship returns to the Royal Liverpool Golf Club at Hoylake. The last time the British Open took place on this venue it was a tough summer with clouds of dirt accompanying almost every shot. At the end of the competition, it was Tiger Woods who took the championship for the second time in a row with a winning score of 270 (-18).
Will Tiger Make a Comeback?
Tiger Woods was ranked No.1 in the World Golf Ranking until recently. He missed the first two majors of this Golfing season due to a back surgery and he will be keen to make his comeback and to start getting back his rank. However, Woods is only going back into the game and the expectations are not too high.
Henrik Stenson a Top Favorite
One of the strongest players heading into this competition is Henrik Stenson, finishing in the top five in his last three tournaments. Stenson finished second in last year's Open after and he'll meet tough competition from the current world No. 1 Adam Scott and the No. 3 Justin Rose. Another player to look for is Rory Mcllroy. Ranked No. 8, Mcllroy has been displaying top performance in all of his appearances in 2014 so far.
