A capsule look at 20 contenders for the British Open golf championship, to be played July 18-21 at Muirfield (listed in predicted order of finish):

___

TIGER WOODS

Age: 37.

Country: United States.

World ranking: 1.

Worldwide wins: 90.

Majors: Masters (1997, 2001, 2002, 2005), US Open (2000, 2002, 2008), British Open (2000, 2005, 2006), PGA Championship (1999, 2000, 2006, 2007).

At his best in 2013: He won four times by May, still the most victories of any player this year.

At his worst in 2013: Shot 44 on the back nine at Muirfield Village and later revealed he had a strain in his left elbow.

British Open moment: A three-time Open champion, no memory is as great as his eight-shot win at St. Andrews to complete the Grand Slam at age 24.

Pot bunker mentality: Woods is winning everything with regularity except the majors. He now has gone five full years since his last major win, and he comes into this British Open as somewhat of a mystery because of the elbow injury that has kept him out since the U.S. Open.

GRAEME MCDOWELL

Age: 33.

Country: Northern Ireland.

World ranking: 6.

Worldwide wins: 12.

Majors: US Open (2010).
