The 2012 British Open is kicking off this week at the Royal Lytham & St. Annes golf course in Lancashire, UK. The last time the British Open was at Royal Lytham & St. Annes was in 2001 when David Duval took home the Claret Jug. Like all of the British Open courses in the UK, the Royal Lytham & St. Annes will give the top players on the PGA Tour a run for their money. The course is peppered with sand with 206 bunkers, a lot of which are surrounding the greens. If that wasn’t enough trouble for the players, the weather for this week is calling for a bit of rain. Tiger, Phil and the rest of the field better be ready for a battle this week. Vegas has released their odds for the tournament and Tiger is atop the list at 10/1 odds while Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood are right behind him at 12/1. Phil comes in at #5 with 30/1 odds and last year’s winner, Darren Clarke comes in at 150/1. I guess Vegas isn’t too keen on back-to-back victories from Clarke. Check out the Top-30 odds...
