Tiger 6-1 for Open after Greenbrier missed cut
PUNTERS who smashed into Tiger Woods claiming a second consecutive US Tour victory at 7-2 this week were left licking their wounds on Saturday as the former world No. 1 missed the cut at the Greenbrier Classic.
Woods, who stormed to his third win of the season at the AT&T National last week could shoot only an even-par total of 140 for his two rounds at the Old White TPC to miss out on qualifying for the final two rounds, two weeks before the third Major of the season, the Open at Royal Lytham.
He is a general 6-1 to win his 15th Major on the Lancashire coast, while Phil Mickelson is out to 40-1 with BetVictor to win the Open after he also missed the weekend.
Lee Westwood, who is 14-1 second favourite with Rory McIlroy, had a day to forget at the French Open as he slipped and injured his groin
on his way to the first tee.
He dropped seven shots in his opening six holes and although he recovered to shoot a five-over-par 76, he starts his round today 12 shots behind leaders Anders Hansen and his former Ryder Cup
team-mate David Howell, who is looking for his first win on the
European Tour since 2006.
South Africa’s George Coetzee is a shot behind with Racquel Jacquelin and Marcel Siem one shot further back.
