The 2012 British Open is set to get underway this week for the 141st time at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Course in Lancashire, England and Tiger Woods' stock is now back to "favorite" status heading into a major. That's good news for such a premiere event to have the iconic golfer back to his winning ways, and it's likely a boon for sports books as well as they rake in the wagers being placed this week for The Open.
