2012 British Open: Players To Watch

With the 2012 British Open beginning on Thursday, all eyes will be fixed on Tiger Woods to see if he can end his four-year drought without winning a major championship.

In addition to Woods, SB Nation's Adam Fonseca believes that fans should keep their eyes on Lee Westwood as well. Having his own problems at majors, Westwood could breakthrough this weekend.

Via SB Nation:

Lee Westwood -- Speaking of elusive majors, Westy could write a book on his near misses at majors through his impressive career. He is pulling out all the stops this week in England, choosing to skip last week's Scottish Open so he could get an early look at Royal Lytham in the hopes of winning his first major victory. In the past four years, Westwood has recorded at least a fourth-place finish in seven majors, including two runner-up finishes in 2010. Enough's enough for Westwood, and this very well might be his week.

Fonseca also believes that Bubba Watson, Steve Stricker, Justin Rose and Marcel Siem should all have your attention.
