British Open 2012 Leaderboard: Brandt Snedeker Lights Up Royal Lytham

With Brandt Snedeker on an absolute tear in his second round at Royal Lytham, the oddsmakers have upped his chances of winning the British Open. At 6-under par through 13 holes on Friday, the American who started the day two shots back of Adam Scott and is now 10-under has moved up to 6-1 odds to lift the Claret Jug on Sunday, according to Ladbrokes.

While Tiger Woods -- who ended his first round at 3-under and just three strokes back of 18-hole leader Scott -- remains the favorite at 5-1, Snedeker’s incredible start to his fourth Open Championship boosted his odds from 150-1 when the week began.

Whether Snedeker -- who is flawless through 30 holes and who would shoot a 64 should he par his way in -- is able to keep up his torrid pace as the weather worsens, one thing seems certain: He seems a shoo-in to make his first cut in the Brits’ national tourney.
