Ian Woosnam's Guide to The Open 2009, a Classic Sports Series Title for The 2009 British Open Golf C

The 2009 British Open Golf Championship at Turnberry starts on Thursday and promises to be one of the most exciting events on the golfing calendar. Ian Woosnam's Guide to The Open 2009 is the essential guide to The 2009 British Open Golf Championships.

[UKPRwire, Wed Jul 15 2009] Today, sports and travel publisher Absolute Publishing Ltd (APL) launched its latest Classic Sports Series title, Ian Woosnam's Guide to The Open 2009.

Anthony Leyens, APL CEO, says: "We are proud to launch our essential annual guide to the 138th Open Championship at Turnberry, packed full of everything you need to know about enjoying golf's most famous event - and more."

What would Tiger Woods be doing if he wasn't playing golf? How is Padraig Harrington shaping up to be the first player since Peter Thomson in 1956 to win three successive Opens? And how is Rory McIlroy dealing with the pressure of being the young newcomer?

Find out the answers by reading interviews from key contender Tiger Woods ( http://sn.im/tiger-woods-2009-open ), last year's winner, Padraig Harrington and other major challengers, including Greg Norman, Paul Casey and golf's rising star, Rory McIlroy.

"There has never been a clear winner at Turnberry, and with Tiger back in the hunt there will be no easy path to the Claret Jug," states Ian Woosnam in his forward. "Padraig Harrington is out to make history while Paul Casey is playing superb golf."

Ian Woosnam's Guide to The Open 2009 features a hole-by-hole course guide and Angus Loughran's exclusive betting tips.
