Woods & Westwood favourites this weekend
July 5, 2012

With the 141st Open Championship coming up later this month, the top players in the world are looking to find form before the third major of the season.

Tiger Woods, fresh of recording his 74 th career win at Congressional, heads to the Old White TPC in West Virginia in what is likely to be his final competitive action before Lytham, whilst World Number 3, Lee Westwood, is in Paris for the French Open.

William Hill make Woods 7-2 favourite to make it win number 75 this week, whilst the market for the Open de France is headed by Lee Westwood at 6-1.

William Hill spokesman, Rupert Adams, said: "With three wins this year, it looks like we can now truly say that Tiger is back! He is favourite to win the Greenbrier this week, favourite to win the Open later in the month, and just 20/1 to win both the final two majors this season. Lee Westwood recently showed top class form to win in Sweden and he looks the one to beat in Paris this week, and we rate the Worksop wonder at 5-1 to win one major this year."
