Major form for The Open

Open form 2008
Miguel Angel Jimenez - hotly tipped

For the first time since he turned professional in the autumn of 1996, Tiger Woods will not be present at a Major championship. The 14-time Major winner is currently recovering from a number of injuries, and will not play competitively again this year.

Not only did the world No 1 undergo surgery on a serious knee problem, he must also recover from a stress fracture in his tibia.

Although his absence means that opportunity knocks for the rest of the field, Woods will be sorely missed on the Lancashire dunes.

Only once in the last eight Majors has Woods finished lower than second, while his recent painful US Open victory at Torrey Pines will go down as one of the greatest performances of all time.

As for those teeing-up at Royal Birkdale this week, here are their results for the last eight Majors, where Miguel Angel Jimenez' record is as good as anyone:
