The 2012 British Open gets underway on Jan. 19 with Hunter Mahan and Todd Hamilton among local headliners. Mahan is a resident of Colleyville and Hamilton lives in Westlake.

Check out the odds for the tournament here. Tiger Woods is the odds-on favorite to win. It would be his first Major Championship win in over four years. Mahan was given a 40/1 odds to win, but this is obviously anyone's tournament for the taking.

Mahan most recently finished tied for 8th in the AT&T National and 11th in the June 21 Travelers Championship.
