Open Championship preview: Odds and sods

Published 13/07/2009 15:57:45

We take a look at the golfers hoping to win the 138th Open Championship at Turnberry this week. Who will win? What are the odds?

Let's take a look at the runners and riders in this week's tournament:


Tiger Woods

The setup at Turnberry looks perfect for Woods to repeat his Hoylake domination of 2006. He's got the form and he's got the game. Prediction: Winner

Ross Fisher

A name that's been on the leaderboard before but not quite broke through. I feel strongly that a Brit will have a great performance this year. Prediction: Top 5

Rory Mcilroy

A talented young golfer but I don't fancy his chances because I think this course will eat better players than Rory alive. Prediction: Top 30

Padraig Harrington

Reigning champion looking for third successive win. Can he do it? He's out of form and I don't think he's ready. Prediction: Top 30

Segio Garcia

Underachiever but performs well in The Open. Spaniard must show his strength of character of be forgotten as also-ran. Prediction: Top 10

Paul Casey

Great talent but a little out of form recently. Backing the Englishman for a big performance. Prediction: Top 5

Adam Scott

The Aussie should be good in these windy conditions. Prediction: Top 10

Geoff Ogilvy

Another Aussie who I think has the game to take this course on. Prediction: Top 5

Kenny Perry

Great renaissance form from Perry over the last 18 months but this isn't his kind of golf course. That said, he's got a great swing and talent always shows through. WIll make cut but won't bother the leaderboard. Prediction: Top 30

Anthony Kim

Expecting great things of Kim in the future but this tournament isn't for him. Would love to see him place well and would also be surprised. Prediction: Top 30

Martin Kaymer

This 24 year old German is in great form on the back of two European Tour victories. He Prediction: Top 20

Ernie Els

Former winner and usually comes good at the Open. Sorry Ernie, not this year. Prediction: MC

Greg Norman

Sorry Greg, we loved your charge up the leaderboard last year but you never had the cojones to win it when you were in your prime and that isn't going to change now. Prediction: MC

Phil Mickelson

Lefty is out for family reasons - his wife and mother have cancer.
