Tiger Woods will start as favourite as he bids to become the first golfer to hold all four Majors at the same time.

Among those attempting to deprive him are defending champion Vijay Singh, Ernie Els, runner-up at three Majors last year, as well as Lee Westwood and Colin Montgomerie, who have dominated the European rankings in recent years.
