Watson thinks Woods is favorite


ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – Ladbrokes and Tom Watson both consider Tiger Woods the favorite here this week at the Open Championship. Not sure about too many other people though.

Watson chatted with the press corps Wednesday at the Old Course and the first question asked was regarding Tiger Woods and harsh comments that Watson made regarding Woods earlier this year.

“I’ve said what I need to say about Tiger Woods,” Watson said. “The one thing that you should be writing about Tiger Woods right now is that he’s won the championship the last two times he’s played here and that he’s probably the odds-on favorite to win it again.”

Ladbrokes has Woods as the favorite at 6-to-1 odds.
