Open Championship Odds: Rose and McIlroy 14-1 Favorites

TIGER WOODS IS NOT FAVORED to win a major in which he is entered for the first time since, well, eons ago. And yet, as you might expect, he is playing to win.

When asked today about his goal this week at Hoylake, Tiger replied, "First," adding, "That's always the case."

We've heard that many times before. Speaking of "first," I'd say first Tiger needs to make the cut. I expect he will unless the rust is still thick like it was at Congressional.

Well, I don't know what to call it but Tiger seems to say these things for TV.
He has gone from the best prepared golfer to a good actor show casing self confidence.
I remember a few yrs ago how Tiger showed scant respect to Big Ernie's preparation returning from injury.
Tiger's golf game ain't making anyone marvel so he has to open his yap to get attention so advertisers can come calling, it's all marketing folks.

I am sick of the endless bravado
coming from Tiger the last few yrs when he can't even hit a driver decently to save his life.
Now,if he is to show at Royal Liverpool & finish top 10.I won't ever doubt this guy again.
