2013 British Open Predictions – 2013 British Open Tiger Woods Prop Bets


The British Open has a way of bringing out the very worst in the very best golfers. The online sportsbook experts consider the U.S. Open to be child’s play next to the British Open. The reason is that real links golf is about as unpredictable as golf can get. A player who is just a few inches off on his driving could spend the entire tournament hacking his ball out of thick straw instead of playing well-designed approach shots. The bunkers in links golf are the stuff that nightmares are made of.

British OpenThis year, The Open is being played at Muirfield in Scotland. This is a great links course that offers more than enough challenges for any pro golfer to sustain. The betting sites always like to stick with the player who shows the most consistency throughout the year, which is why an old favorite is expected to win the Claret Jug by the time this is over.

Tiger Woods (Odds: 8 to 1)

The sports betting experts are not going to fall for the Tiger Woods trap again as they did with the U.S. Open. Leading into this year’s U.S. Open, Tiger Woods was confident and playing the best golf he has played in the past few years. When the tournament was over, Tiger was not even a top 10 finisher and his disappointment was felt around the golfing world. The pundits are not falling for it again at the British Open, so do not look for too many betting experts to take Tiger to win.

Justin Rose (Odds: 18 to 1)

At some point, Justin Rose has got to start stringing together wins and making a public name for himself on the PGA Tour. He has way too much talent to not be a household name by now. But when it comes to links golf, Rose’s fairway play usually abandons him. He should place well in this tournament, but he will not walk away the winner.

Phil Mickelson (Odds: 18 to 1)

This is Lefty’s tournament to lose. Mickelson has been playing well all season and has been challenging tournament leaders all summer long. It looks like that short game which he is so famous for has finally come back to him and that will be a critical tool in winning the British Open.

Graeme McDowell (Odds: 22 to 1)

If you think that Phil Mickelson may choke on the pressure of the British Open, then take Graeme McDowell to win. McDowell has been placing high in tournaments all over the world this year and he looks to challenge for the Claret Jug in this year’s British Open.

The Bottom Line

Take Phil Mickelson to win this year’s British Open and you can also take him to lead the third round as well. Mickelson just seems pointed towards a win at Muirfield and he could dispel a lot of demons if he could hold onto a British Open lead and win the Claret Jug.
