The 18th hole, named Tom Morris, provides us with one of the most famous pictures in golf (right), Swilcan Bridge.  Players walk over this as head home and into The Valley of Sin which protects the final hole. 


My Favorite Course

This is by far my favorite course in the world.  Are there tougher courses? Sure.  The beauty of the buildings surrounding the course and picturesque ocean water views make this stunning golf course a must-play.  If I could play any course in the world, it would be here.  The best part is, it's possible because it's public (although expensive).

2010 British Open Odds

Although Tiger is once again the favorite at 5/1 (way to shock us, Vegas), you can get some very good players at a price.  Mickelson and McIlroy are both going off at 16/1.  Mickelson seems to struggle at The Open but McIlroy might be able to play well here. 


Also take a look at Padraig Harrington at 22/1 (a former champion), Lee Westwood at 18/1 and Luke Donald at 30/1. 


I think the European players have been dominant this year, and I would expect to see one of them lift the Claret Jug on Sunday.
