Since 1860, 15 decade’s worth of British Open betting, the best golfers in the world have been gathering somewhere on the UK to compete for the most prestigious golf betting prize on earth: the Claret Jug. Although there are 4 Major events on the golf betting circuit that the best and brightest in the golf business none of the other 3 majors carry the clout or the prestige of the British Open odds competition. And no one knows that better than 3-time British Open betting winner and world #1 Tiger Woods.
No other single tournament in golf betting means more to him than the British Open odds contest and you can be sure he’ll be in top form when the golf betting action gets underway later this week.
What makes this year’s British Open betting even more special for Woods is the fact that it will be held at the Old St Andrews Course a place that he has previously claimed to be one of the his favorite courses on the planet and without a doubt his favorite place to compete for the British Open odds title.
It’s hard to argue with the results, as two of his three British Open betting titles have come at Old St Andrews. In fact, every time Woods has played here as a professional he’s won the British Open betting title. He’ll be looking to make it 3 for 3 when he tees off on Thursday and the smart money says he will.
Much has been made of the turbulent events in Woods personal life over the past year and certainly that must be a major distraction for the golfer. How else to explain his horrid recent results in the few PGA betting events he’s played in? And it most likely doesn’t help that he’s parted ways with his long time swing doctor, Hank Haney.
But in the two Majors he’s played in since returning from his golf betting hiatus he’s finished fourth in both and been within a good shot or two winning both. He should also be right in the mix during this year’s British Open betting action and you’d have to be crazy not to think he’s the favorite in golf odds.
