[url=http://freeteams.net/sileshe/]British open championship 2013 live stream[/url] : Thursday marks the beginning of the 142nd British Open—golf's oldest major championship. The forecast for Gullane, Scotland's Muirfield Golf Links looks promising, which should lend itself to low scores for at least the beginning of the tournament.The BBC reports that it will be sunny throughout the opening day of action, and thus the hard, fast conditions will reward those who can keep the ball in play and control the tricky but straightforward approach shots Muirfield offers.Players who get overzealous, though, will pay the price for being too aggressive in trying to establish themselves as legitimate contenders.The rough at this venue is extremely harsh and almost always leads to dropped shots. An imaginative short game for the shots around the greens is also a big plus.[url=http://www.eteamz.com/openkrobritishopen2013ls/]Br
Considering how well he began the year, though, it's difficult to doubt him, and his odds as the clear-cut favorite reflect that.Coming off a win at the Scottish Open last week, Phil Mickelson seems geared toward knocking on the door at an event that is historically his worst in majors by far.lefty is one to take chances and often pull it off, but it hasn't translated well to links golf in the past. Now that he's adjusted and has a better understanding of how to navigate such courses as Muirfield, his chances of winning increase exponentially.At 43 years old, he still hasn't lost much distance and still has a short game that's nearly second to no one. In terms of imagination and creativity on chip shots, no one is as good as Phil the Thrill.Woods is too much of a veteran to truly hit the panic button or shoot himself out of a major on the first day, so look for him to post a solid if not spectacular round on Thursday.Let's take a look at the coverage information for the opening round, followed by analysis and what to expect from the odds-on favorites to begin the year's third major.

A win here would put him just one leg away from completing the career Grand Slam. His missed cut at the Greenbrier Classic after yet another runner-up at the U.S. Open was an aberration in light of his victory in Inverness.Mickelson's skill set should have netted him a Claret Jug by now, and on Thursday, he'll continue making up for lost time in that regard by putting himself near the top early on.Ernie Els won the last time the Open was held at Muirfield Golf Links, and he also happens to be defending the Claret Jug, having secured victory at Royal Lytham and St. Annes last year.
