Westwood odds on to never win a Major

July 30, 2013

As Phil Mickelson basked in the glory of a British Open victory he thought would never come, Lee Westwood was facing up to the reality of yet another missed opportunity. Bookmaker Paddy Power give odds of 1/2 that the 40 year old will never break his major duck.

After Justin Rose's heroics at Merion the stage was set for a British golfer to continue the trend and record a home victory at the seasons third major. However, Rose and Donald fell away quickly leaving only Westwood, leading going into the final day, and Ian Poulter as realistic hopes to secure the Claret Jug. Mickelson didn't read the script though and a superb final round saw him push Poulter and Westwood into joint third place.

Big Phil is now 11/1 second favourite to pick up the US PGA title in August with US Masters winner Adam Scott at 16/1 and US Open winner Justin Rose at 20/1 . The favourite for the tournament is Tiger Woods, despite a solid yet unspectacular performance at Muirfield. The four-time US PGA winner is 11/2 to pick up his 15 th major at Oak Hill, Rochester.

A Paddy Power spokesman said; "It all looked Rosy for Westy heading into the final day but Mickelson 's superb final round relegated Lee to yet another 3 rd place finish. We hope we're wrong but it's now odds on that Mr.Consistent has missed the major boat."
