Professional golf tournaments attract some of the most lucrative land and
online betting action
around the world, and the United Kingdom is no
different, especially with the prestigious 2009 British Open Golf Tournament
just around the corner, with a top field expected including Tiger Woods.

In fact, Tiger Woods is expected to be the big favourite going into this year’s
British Open, which runs from Thursday, July 16th to Sunday July 19th at
Turnberry Golf Club in Ayrshire, England. As such, UK golf betting fans will no
doubt have him at the top of their pick lists, alongside some local players.

These include Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland, Ian Poulter of England, Paul
Casey of England, Lee Westwood of England and Ross Fisher of England. Judging by
their current online betting odds, all of these players are in with a decent
shot at upstaging Tiger, who seems hungry to win this tournament again.

Tiger last won this auspicious tournament in 2005 and 2006 – at St Andrews in
Scotland and Royal Liverpool Golf Club respectively, although for the last two
year it has been Irishman, Padraig Harrington, who has earned himself British
Open glory. As such, Harrington will also be a big favourite to win this year.

One of the greatest features of the British Open Golf Tournament is that it
always attracts a big field comprising the best golfers from all over the world,
including the United States, Australia, South Africa and Spain. Since the
tournament was launched in 1860, the country with the most winners is Scotland
with 22.

However, in recent years the British Open has been predominantly dominated by
Americans, although the five players with the greatest odds to win this year’s
Open comprise an American (Tiger Woods), a Spaniard (Sergio Garcia), a Northern
Irishman (Rory McIlroy), and Englishmen (Ian Poulter and Paul Casey).
