Surprise: Woods a Heavy Favorite

July 14, 2002|Associated Press

LONDON — A British bookmaker installed Tiger Woods as the overwhelming 7-4 favorite to win this week's British Open, a victory that would put golf's best player in position to complete the Grand Slam.

Woods was also listed by bookmaker Corals on Friday as 9-2 to win the final two events in the Grand Slam, the British Open and next month's PGA Championship. Woods has already won the first two, the Masters and U.S. Open.

Ernie Els was the second choice for the British Open at 12-1, followed by Sergio Garcia and Phil Mickelson at 16-1.

Defending champion David Duval is among a group of players at 33-1.
