It’s been feast or famine at the major tournaments for Bubba Watson so far in 2012, and he’ll be looking to find his Masters form once again this week as he tees it up at the British Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes.

Watson picked up the first major title of his career at the Masters in the spring, but he followed up that victory by missing the cut at the U.S. Open last month. And without much of a track record at the British Open he’s back at 40/1 odds to win the event this week.
Watson has played the British Open three times in his career, missing the cut in both 2009 and 2010 and finishing in a tie for 30th place at the tournament at Royal St George’s last season. In his career Watson has managed to finish in the Top 10 at a major tournament just three times – at the Masters this year (first), at the PGA Championship in 2010 (second), and at the U.S. Open back in 2007 (fifth).
So predicting a high Watson finish at Royal Lytham & St Annes this week would pay off nicely on the golf props at Bovada, as he’s set back at 8/1 odds to end up in the Top 5 at the event. Watson is also a 40/1 underdog to lead the tournament after the first round.
You can find Watson at 16/1 odds to finish as the top American player at the British Open this week; Tiger Woods is the 11/4 favorite on that prop bet, with Phil Mickelson (9/1) and Rickie Fowler (10/1) among the other golfers ahead of Watson on that list.
As well, on the head-to-head golf props at Bovada Watson and Zach Johnson are tied at -115 odds for their matchup; Johnson was 16th at the British Open in 2011, which was his best-ever result at the tournament.
