Same Old Story - Woods the Pick at British Open

Tiger is the favorite, of course, as he will be for at least the next 10 years in the British Open. At 9/4, though, hes not quite the overwhelming pick he was for the U.S. Open. But the interesting selections are the runners-up in the betting odds for the Open.
David Duval, Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh share second-place in information from the internet. Each is at 20-1.
A fivesome holds down the next position at 25-1: Thomas Bjorn, Darren Clarke, Retief Goosen, Ernie Els and Davis Love III. Tom Lehman and Colin Montgomerie are at 33-1.
At 40-1 are Jim Furyk, Padraig Harrington and Jesper Parnevik. Lee Westwood is something of a surprise at 50-1, though he has missed much of the season with the birth of his first child. Also at 50-1 are Scott Hoch, Angel Cabrera, Nick Price and Mike Weir.
Others include: 66-1, Michael Cambell, David Toms, Jose Marie Olazabal, Justin Leonard, Bernhard Langer, John Daly, Paul Azinger, Stewart Cink and Mark Calcavecchia; 80-1, Fred Couples, Mark Brooks, Scott Verplank, Steve Stricker, Robert Allenby, Paul McGinley, Shegeki Maruyama, Loren Roberts, Billy Mayfair and Jerry Kelly.
