British Open Odds 2012: Tiger Woods Favored At Royal Lytham

It's been four years since Tiger Woods won a major, but bookmakers have him as the odds-on favorite to take home the 2012 British Open.

Woods is listed at 13-2 odds to win this week's tournament, meaning that oddsmakers give him nearly twice as good a shot at winning as Brits Luke Donald and Lee Westwood -- who are tied with the second highest odds at 12-1 -- have. Although Woods' major drought is nearly half a decade long, his three wins this year have him tops on the PGA Tour and there's no reason to believe he can't continue his strong play into a major and bring back his fourth Claret Jug.

Here's the latest odds to win at The Open Championship:

Tiger Woods 13/2
Lee Westwood 12/1
Luke Donald 12/1
Padraig Harrington 16/1
Rory McIlroy 16/1
