British Open Round 2

The first round of the 2009 British Open is in the books and instead of names like Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk at the top of the leader board, it’s Miguel Jimenez and Tom Watson.

After one round of play at Turnberry, Jimenez is atop the leader board with a 64. That score makes him six-under-par heading into action on Friday, which gives Jimenez a one-stroke lead over Watson, Ben Curtis and Kenichi Kuboya, who all shot a 65 on day one.

Woods finds himself chasing Jimenez by seven strokes after shooting a 71 for a one-over-par. And after opening as a 9/4 favorite, oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING have revised Tiger’s odds to 5/1. He’s still the favorite, but that could certainly change if he struggles again in Round 2.

Despite leading at the British Open, Jimenez is still a medium long shot at 16/1. Watson is a whopping long shot at 100/1, while Curtis is 16/1 to win and Kuboya is an 80/1 long shot.

Casing Woods, Jimenez and Curtis in the odds department are Steve Stricker (14/1), Lee Westwood 18/1, Retief Goosen (20/1) and Paul Casey (20/1). Stricker shot a 66 in Round 1 and is just two strokes behind the leader Jimenez, while Westwood shot a 68, Goosen shot a 67 and Casey shot a 68.

Play continues at Turnberry Ailsa golf course on Friday. For complete revised odds on the 2009 British Open, see below.
