Golf fans are readying themselves for the Open Championship set to take place at the Royal Liverpool.
Despite many high-profile stars attending the event, there is no obvious betting favorite. Members of
the golf betting community may struggle as choosing the correct winner will require a little bit of luck
and an intense knowledge of the game.
The sheer number of contenders scheduled to compete at the Open Championship serve as a reminder
of why we love the game as much as we do. High profile stars like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlory will
be out there pushing for success, but the sportsbook owes them nothing and neither do you.
In fact, the golf odds available for this year’s British Open are a bit surprising. Adam Scott currently
leads a well-balanced field, but he’s only 12/1 to outright win the Open Championship. Reigning
champion Phil Mickelson is just 20/1 to win.
Woods (18/1) and McIlroy (16/1) are worth consideration given their reputations, but so are
FedExCup point leader Jimmy Walker (80/1) and former Open Championship winner Darren Clarke
With so many worthy contestants, this year’s third major championship is ripe for the plucking. The
plethora of legitimate betting options makes the golf odds all the more appealing to fans looking to
weigh in on the tournament. Think you know how it will all unfold?
