2012 British Open: Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy Top Favorites

Pregame.com has released the latest odds for the 2012 British Open, and Tiger Woods remains atop the list of favorites. However, Rory McIlroy is now the second favorite of betters on the golf major and Lee Westwood is now third. Formerly Luke Donald was right behind Woods, but has fallen to 15-1 odds.

Tom Watson does not make the list of odds from Pregame, but he's at 200-1 over at Bovada. As a five-time champion of the British Open, no American is more celebrated than the Kansas native. Watson is playing again this year and hopes to add a sixth title at the age of 62.
