The 147th British Open tees off early Thursday morning at Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus, Scotland and just by looking at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook odds board, where no golfer is listed lower than 12-to-1, it appears this thing is wide open.
“You can make a lot of good cases for golfers at prices over 100-to-1 because it’s a links course that several European golfers are familiar with,” said SuperBook oddsmaker Jeff Sherman.
Dustin Johnson, the winner of the 2016 U.S. Open, is the 12-to-1 favorite to win followed by Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose, each at 16-to-1. McIlroy won The Open Championship in 2014. Last year’s winner Jordan Spieth is 20-to-1, as is the most wagered upon golfer.
