British Open 2012: Pressure Is On Tiger Woods

With Tiger Woods being a three-time British Open Championship winner and the odds-on favorite to win the tournament this weekend, the pressure is without question riding on what many to believe to be the world's best player. Tiger Woods performing under pressure has been known to be one of the most compelling narratives in sports and it looks like that's what we're going to get starting Thursday at 4:42 a.m. ET.

SB Nation golf contributor Adam Fonseca had this to say about Tiger in mentioning the players to watch in the British Open:

Once again, Woods is the odds favorite to win a major in 2012, and once again opinions are torn as to how he will perform when the pressure is on. Woods' two previous major attempts this year have been forgettable; however, he did show some flashes of brilliance during the U.S. Open last month. If Royal Lytham remains forgiving and if Woods can keep his golf ball in play, don't be surprised if major number 15 is the end result come Sunday.
