The Open Championship - Who will go all the way at Royal Lytham?

One of golf’s most famous events takes place this week as the Open Championship comes from Royal Lytham and with the best players in the world all on show, it should make for a fantastic four days.

Tiger Woods is the big favourite at the moment which is no surprise given his history in the major tournaments. He has also looked back to his near best in recent months.

The American has not won a major competition since 2009 but with three wins at the Open in his career, you can certainly not write him off.

Woods can be backed at 9/1 with Paddy Power.

Lee Westwood is still searching for his major victory and many people are now starting to doubt whether he has it in him to do it on the big stage.

The Englishman is likely to be amongst the leaders, however he has not been able to finish on top over the years and has been the nearly man in so many events.

Luke Donald is in a similar position to Westwood although has not been playing for quite so long. Donald is the current number one in the world but will feel he needs a big win to really prove himself.

In terms of the latest betting offer for these two Brit’s, you can back them both at 16/1.

Rory McIlroy is the other name being mentioned to go all the way. The Northern Irishman has been in poor form this year, failing to make the cut in a number of tournaments.

That said though, McIlroy is a player that seems to relish these major’s and has one to his name already at just 23-years-old. He is being offered at 18/1 to win the Open with Sportingbet.

Padraig Harrington, Justin Rose and Graham McDowell will be other names looking to put in a performance on home soil.

The great thing about these tournaments is that players can come from nowhere and upset the odds. It should be a cracking four days.

Golf Preview - US Open

The second major of the year gets underway in two weeks and it is sure to be a fantastic tournament with all the best golf players in the world going head to head for the famous trophy.

Rory McIlroy is the current champion after a fantastic win last year which saw the Northern Irishman smash the record books and go round in 16-under-par over the four days.

McIlroy currently sits in the number two spot in terms of world rankings. However, with just one win so far in 2012, the 23-year-old is not in the best of form and he also failed to make the cut last time out in the BMW Championship at Wentworth.

Despite this, the 2011 US Open winner is the favourite with the bookmakers to retain his title. You can back him at 11/1 with SkyBet.

Luke Donald is the current World Number one after his fantastic win at Wentworth last week. Donald won the tournament by four shots.

The Englishman is yet to win a major though, something he will feel as though he needs to do to prove himself as one of the best golfers around. With the form Donald is in, this could be his tournament to do it.

Tiger Woods is a name that can never be ruled of contention when it comes to discussing potential winners of a major. The 36-year-old has won one even this year but has not picked up a major tournament since 2008.

Those interested in a betting offer for the American picking up the trophy will see that he is 16/1 with Coral.

Lee Westwood and Phil Mickelson are two other players that are being heavily talked about to win the US Open.

The Masters Champion Bubba Watson will also be someone who is confident of his chances after a fantastic win at Augusta earlier in the year.
