Tiger Woods has won three Open Championships: 2000 at St. Andrews, 2005 at St. Andrews and 2006 at Royal Liverpool. and is listed at 10-1 in the latest 2019 British Open odds. World No. 1 Brooks Koepka won the 2019 PGA Championship and finished second in the other two majors. Accordingly, he’s the 6-1 overall 2019 British Open favorite to win at Royal Portrush.

The largest margin since World War II is eight strokes by Tiger Woods over Thomas Bjorn and Ernie Els during the 2000 Open at St. Andrews.

There have been seven wire-to-wire winners in Open Championship history. They are: Ted Ray (1912, Muirfield), Bobby Jones (1927, St. Andrews), Gene Sarazen (1932, Prince’s), Henry Cotton (1934, Royal St. George’s), Tom Weiskopf (1973, Royal Troon), “Tiger Woods (2005, St. Andrews)” and Rory McIlroy (2014, Royal Liverpool).

Woods won his 15th major championship earlier this year at Masters. It was his first major title since the 2008 U.S. Open and it was the first time in his career that he came from behind to win one. Woods can tie Sam Snead with 82 career PGA Tour victories with a win at Royal Portrush, which is hosting the British Open for the first time since 1951.

However, it appears Woods will not play in a competitive tournament leading up to the 2019 Open Championship. If those reports are true, this will be the second time this season Woods has sat out every event between two majors. Following his victory at Augusta, Woods didn’t play again until the PGA Championship, where he missed the cut after shooting back-to-back rounds over par. SportsLine’s model doesn’t believe Woods will earn his 16th career major championship at Royal Portrush and sees far better values in a loaded 2019 Open Championship field.

Normal humans receive bills, thank you notes and maybe an Amazon package or two in the mail when they’re out of town. Tiger Woods is obviously not a normal human.While Woods was away recently, presumably on vacation with his family in Thailand, he received his fifth Masters trophy that he earned this past April via mail. Hopefully Augusta National made sure somebody signed for that thing.
Most people associate the Masters with the green jacket, obviously, but that silver trophy is just as sweet. And Woods had to find space in front of his tiled red wall (?) for yet another one after clipping Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele by a stroke in April.Tiger has been off since his mediocre finish at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach last month, and won’t play again until the Open Championship at Royal Portush two weeks from now. That means between the Masters and Open Championship, Woods will have played just one PGA Tour event at the 2019 Memorial.Last year at Carnoustie, Tiger finished T6 at the Open. It’s the one major I thought he could contend at until he’s 60. Even as he was criticized last season for laying back and not pounding driver while everybody went low early, he roared around the final turn and nearly stole the best tournament of 2019. I wouldn’t hate seeing that once again when golfers tee it up in Northern Ireland.Eldrick Tont “Tiger” Woods (born December 30, 1975) is an American professional golfer. He ranks second in both major championships and PGA Tour wins and also holds numerous records in golf. Woods is widely regarded as being one of the greatest golfers in the history of the sport.Following an outstanding junior, college, and amateur golf career, Woods turned professional in 1996 at the age of 20. By the end of April 1997, he had won three PGA Tour events in addition to his first major, the 1997 Masters, which he won by 12 strokes in a record-breaking performance. He first reached the number one position in the world rankings in June 1997, less than a year after turning pro. Throughout the first decade of the 21st century, Woods was the dominant force in golf; he was the top-ranked golfer in the world from August 1999 to September 2004 (264 weeks) and again from June 2005 to October 2010 (281 weeks). During this time, he won thirteen of golf’s major championships.The next decade of Woods’ career was marked by multiple comebacks from both personal problems and injuries. He took a self-imposed hiatus from professional golf from December 2009 to early April 2010 in an attempt to resolve marital issues with his estranged wife Elin. His many alleged extramarital indiscretions were revealed by several women through worldwide media sources, and the couple eventually divorced. Woods fell to number 58 in the world rankings in November 2011, before ascending to once again reach the No.1 ranking between March 2013 and May 2014. However, Woods’ personal problems persisted outside of golf; injuries led him to undergo four back surgeries in 2014, 2015 and 2017. He competed in only one tournament between August 2015 and January 2018; this led him to drop out of the rankings of the world’s top 1,000 golfers. On his return to regular competition, Woods made steady progress to the top of the game, winning his first tournament in five years at the Tour Championship in September 2018 and his first major in eleven years at the 2019 Masters.Woods has broken numerous golf records. He has been World Number One for the most consecutive weeks and for the greatest total number of weeks of any golfer. He has been awarded PGA Player of the Year a record eleven times and has won the Byron Nelson Award for lowest adjusted scoring average a record eight times. Woods has the record of leading the money list in ten different seasons. He has won 15 professional major golf championships (trailing only Jack Nicklaus, who leads with 18) and 81 PGA Tour events (second all time behind Sam Snead, who won 82). Woods leads all active golfers in career major wins and career PGA Tour wins. He is the youngest player to achieve the career Grand Slam, and is only the second golfer (after Nicklaus) to have achieved a career Grand Slam three times. Woods has won 18 World Golf Championships. In May 2019, Woods was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and is the fourth golfer to receive the honor.
