The excitement is building as the third major of the season approaches, and in most peoples opinion, the biggest of them all (I might be a little biased.)
You great thing about The Open Championship is that you never quite know what to expect in terms of conditions as they can change so quickly within a matter of minutes, which makes it so hard to prepare for if you aren’t used to playing links golf.
Player’s like Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy have grown up playing links golf, but will only probably benefit if the wind gets up, then they could come into their own.
The conditions look pretty good for the next few days though and it could get hard and bouncy, and with the narrow fairways could prove to be a test, I think we will be seeing a lot of irons off the tee come the weekend.
So after all said and done, here are my betting tips:
Rickie Fowler 40/1
Tiger Woods 22/1
Sergio Garcia 25/1
Miguel Angel Jimenez 80/1
