Rank 'Em: British Open Contenders

Created: July 8, 2009, 9:41 AM

Tiger Woods needs one more major win to tie Roger Federer at 15.

After missing most of last season with a knee injury, Tiger Woods is back and ready to contend for his first major win of the season and his fourth British Open title.

Despite never having played at the Ailsa Course at Turnberry, Woods' dramatic improvement in controlling his swing has made him the odds-on favorite of most to hoist the Claret Jug one more time.
