After two years of waiting, golf lovers around the world have been eagerly counting down to the return of The Open Championship – the sport’s oldest and most prestigious tournament.
With the coronavirus pandemic meaning that the 2019 edition of the tournament at the Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland was the last time the Open was held, it is understandable that the excitement is high before the tournament on 15 July in Royal Kick off St George’s in Kent.de.
Jon Rahm’s first major victory at the recent US Open in Torrey Pines, California means the Spaniard is the absolute favorite in The British Open Opportunities. However, it is very difficult to win rugby champions, and that means someone from the left of the field can lift the Claret Jug later this month.
So, with just over a week left to the 149de getting the issue of The Open underway, let’s take a look at some great bets outside. Read on to find out more!
Jordan Spieth – 18/1
After such a promising start to his career, winning three major titles in two years, Jordan Spieth endured a difficult period. Without a win in more than four years, the American falls out of the top 100 players in the world. However, with a win at the Texas Open in April, Spieth kicked his career back to life and it looks like it’s only a matter of time before he wins his fourth major. He has finished third in the Masters all season and a top-20 finish at the US Open, and with the experience that he has already won the Claret Jug, he could have been there or there at Royal St George’s.
Justin Thomas – 22/1
World no. 3, Justin Thomas, definitely makes an interesting bet on 22/1. The American, who has not won a major since his first PGA Championship victory in 2017, has had a difficult start to the year, with personal issues away from the sport and controversy on the track appearing to be taking its toll claim. However, he bounced back in TPC Sawgrass in March with a win in The Players Championship, the next for a major, proving he still needs to compete at the top. He hasn’t really started since, and he missed the lead at the PGA Championship ahead of a 19-man squaddefinish at the US Open. But he will surely have a good chance of winning the final major of 2021.
Brooks Koepka – 14/1
As the fourth favorite, Brooks Koepka is not exactly a massive outsider to win The Open. However, there is the potential that money can be earned by 14/1. The 31-year-old was recently headlining for a split with the 2020 US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau, but in the recent US Open and Travelers Championships, where he finished fourth and fifth respectively, the four-time winner proved his focus . is exclusively at his game, and he will undoubtedly like to add a win at The Open to his CV.
Collin Morikawa – 25/1
Like Thomas, Collin Morikawa is another alluring bet on 25/1. The world no. 4 finished eighth in defense of his PGA Championship crown at the Kiawah Island Golf Course in May, and he finished fourth with a fourth-place finish at the recent U.S. Open. This will be the 24-year-old’s first outing at The Open, and it’s no easy thing to win at Royal St George’s. In its current form, however, he will feel confident.
