This year’s Open 2014 Championship is set to be an extremely tight affair as there doesn’t seem to be one player that is heavily in form. The favourite for this year’s tournament is currently the 2013 Masters champion Adam Scott, who has odds at 12/1, but closely behind him is joint second favourites Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia, who both have odds of 14/1. Rory McIlroy is another name that could be in the hat for the victory, but last week’s performance in the Scottish Open, where he threw away a large lead, suggests he may crumble under the Open Championship pressure.
One of the biggest names in the world of Golf is obviously Tiger Woods, and he has said that his only goal at the Open 2014 is to win, and he will not be happy with anything less. Yet, the American golfer has not played the sport since March, as he was forced to undergo surgery on a back injury. So far in 2014, Tiger Woods has not performed well in tournaments at all as he hasn’t finished above joint 25th yet this year. Woods has had four left knee operations, neck and Achilles injuries and now a back injury in his career, but he is positive he can beat Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18 major titles.
When talking about whether his back will affect his Open 2014 tournament, 25/1 shot Tiger Woods commented, “When my knee was bad I could still chip and putt, I could still go out there on the golf course. But with this back I didn’t want to do anything. I couldn’t get out of bed, I couldn’t move around the house. I couldn’t actually enjoy my life. Once I started getting stronger, more stable, I could work on my explosiveness and start getting my speed back. I’m probably not at the level I think I can be as far as my explosion through the golf ball but I’m pretty darn close.”
