The 141st Open Championship takes place in under two weeks and it is sure to be a fantastic four days of golf at Royal Lytham.
Darren Clarke is the current champion after upsetting all the odds to lift the trophy last time out.
Clarke will know what a tough task he has to finish out on top this year but will certainly be doing everything he can to achieve back-to-back titles.
Tiger Woods goes into the tournament as one of the big favourites which is no surprise given his history and know how in major competitions.
Woods has not won one of golf’s big prizes for four years though and will be looking to show he is still one of the best players around this time out.
Rory McIlroy has not been in great form recently but will still be one of the front runners going into the Open.
The Northern Irishman missed the cut in his last major tournament back in June so will be looking to put in a better performance at Royal Lytham.
Although he has won just one event this year, you can never right McIlroy off as he is one of the best in the world when on form.
Luke Donald and Lee Westwood are two players still searching for their first ever Major title. Both will be desperate for success to show they are up there with the best of them.
Donald and Westwood will be wondering if their time will ever come in the big tournaments, however will know they will have the backing of the home crowd.
Padraig Harrington is another name that is not to be taken lightly over the four days. Harrington won back to back Open Championships in 2007 and 2008 so is as experienced as anyone.
As mentioned, Tiger Woods is the favourite at the moment. You can back him at 8.00 (7/1) with SportingBet to win his fourth Open Championship.
Lee Westwood is another name amongst the favourites, he is available to break his major duck at 17.00 (16/1) with VC Bet. Rory McIlroy is being offered at the same price.
Current champion Darren Clarke is a big outsider at 151.00 (150/1) with SkyBet.
On home soil and with the pressure somewhat off him, Ian Poulter could really shine in this tournament. A win for the Englishman can be backed at 51.00 (50/1) with BlueSQ.
