The 2010 British Open Championship kicks off July 15 and with Tiger Woods’ playing status uncertain, Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood have opened as the favorites.

Bet 2010 British Open Championship Odds

There’s a good chance that Tiger Woods will play in the British Open this year, but as of this printing his playing status is still up in the air. With that, oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made Mickelson and Westwood 12/1 favorites. Those odds are obviously subjected to change.

What’s interesting about Mickelson and Westwood opening as favorites is that they’ve never won the British Open. Stewart Cink is the defending British Open champion, while Padraig Harrinton has won two of the last three tournaments (2008, 2007). Woods has won three British Open events, including back-to-back victories in 2006 and 2005, and one in 2000.

While Harrington’s odds to win are listed right behind Mickelson and Westwood’s at 14/1, Cink is a 33/1 long shot to win in 2010. Rory McIlroy (14/1), Ernie Els (16/1), Retief Goosen (20/1) and Sergio Garcia (20/1) are just some of the golfers that currently have better odds to win than Cink.

The 2010 British Open Championship (also referred to as The Open Championship or simply, The Open) takes place July 15 this year and runs through July 18. The event is played at the Old Course at St. Andrews in the United Kingdom and it’s a par 72. The official yardage for the 2010 event is 7,279 yards and the format is a stroke play.
