Tiger Woods Odds to Win the British Open are 15-1, His Longest at a Major in Forever

By Jason McIntyre

Tiger Woods is a 15-1 shot to win the British Open this weekend at Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Merseyside, England, the longest odds he’s faced at a major in over a decade. Woods was 10:1 last year and finished tied for 6th place.

Woods was the 2013 PGA Golfer of the Year – despite not winning a major – but he’s stumbled so far in 2014, mostly due to back surgery. At 38, it’s increasingly looking like Tiger won’t catch the Jack Nicklaus mark of 18 majors won, something that sounded insane five years ago, when he was dominating the tour. Tiger’s been stuck on 14 Majors since 2008. It’s been six years and a month since he won one (US Open at Torrey Pines).

How irrelevant has Tiger been in 2014? The biggest Tiger Woods-related stories have been about his girlfriend, skier Lindsey Vonn, and his ex-wife (the one he cheated on with boatloads of randoms and waitresses and porn stars in Vegas) Elin Nordegren.
