The tournament that everyone has been waiting for is here again……yes it’s The Open!
The Open has been held a Royal Troon 8 times now with the first being in 1923 where the course measured 6,415 yards. The players in 2016 will face a course that measures nearly 7,300 yards which shows you how equipment and human strength have changed over the last 90 years.
Since 1962 The Open at Troon has been dominated by Americans who have won the last 6 Opens on this demanding links course. Does that make an American favourite to win here again? Well going by recent performances from players such as Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth you would probably think so.
Here are my tips if you fancy having a bet.
Dustin Johnson E/W – 9/1
Jordan Spieth E/W – 12/1
Lee Westwood E/W – 40/1
Adam Scott E/W – 22/1
Sergio Garcia E/W – 25/1
Good luck to everyone and enjoy watching the golf over the next few days!
