Amidst the stunning heater, Rory McIlroy is this week’s favorite bet to play the 150th in the Open Championship.
McIlroy sat at the Scottish Open, but it’s not like he needed it to enter The Open any better than he already is. In his last seven Northern Irish matches, he has had one win (the Canadian RBC Open), five top ten places and one worst T19 result. Nobody in the world is playing better than McIlroy at the moment.
Behind McIlroy, Travellers and Scottish Open winner Xander Schauffele, who finished in the top 20 in each of his last six starts. Winning consecutive starts is unbelievable, but three of them seem unreal… right?
Following this duo came Jordan Spieth at 16-1, where he put in a solid showing at the Scottish Open, followed by Jon Ram, Matt Fitzpatrick and Scotty Schaeffler all 18-1.
Schaeffler’s lost cut at the Scottish Open is certainly not encouraging, but his results this summer have been. After winning four championships in the first 3 1/2 months of 2022, Schaeffler has secured five top ten spots in his last six starts, including T2 at the US Open. This will be his second appearance at The Open, after he finished T8 last year. His record in the Grand Slams is absolutely astounding, losing one cut in his last nine starts and finishing in the top ten six times.
Next is Justin Thomas at 20-1. It’s rare to see Thomas with a number this big next to his name, but he’s missed two of his last four cuts, including a stunning MC who crossed 10 times at the Scottish Open, while Spieth has four places in the last ten in the quarter-finals. Started.
Will Zalatores and Clarett Gaug winner Colin Morikawa topped the next set with a score of 25-1.
Zalatores, like Thomas, has missed two of his last four cuts, but his main record this year is astonishing. The 25-year-old went to T6 at the Masters, second in the PGA Championship and T2 at the US Open. This will be his first appearance in an Open Championship after having to retire last year.
Morikawa, the defending champion, also missed the Scottish Open loss. Morikawa won last year at Royal St George in his first-ever golf tournament, so imagine what he could do with some experience under his belt.
Since the turn of the century, four Open Championships have been held in St. Andrews.
Tiger Woods won the first two in 2000 and 2005, winning them both by 13 strokes combined. Next, Louis Oosthuizen took a seven-stroke win in 2010. Five years later, Zach Johnson beat Oosthuizen and Mark Leishman in a four-hole playoff (the Open Championship record length) for the win.
Since Woods last won The Open in 2006, a British or Irish player has won the event five times, with Padraig Harrington back in 2007 and 2008, Darren Clark famously winning in 2011, McIlroy in ’14 at Royal Liverpool and then Shane Lowry in 1919 at Royal Portrush.
Last year, Oosthuizen was in a position to win the rare big, but he finally showed his level on Sundays that kept him as a bridesmaid in the majors for so long. It doesn’t look like he was bad with a 1 on 71, but Morikawa made 5-under a day to finish four times over South Africa and two ahead of Jordan Spieth, whom Clarett Goug won again in 2017.
The most famous track of the Open Championship, St Andrews is iconic. There’s a reason Tiger went out of his way to make sure he’d play this year.
St Andrews has undergone many renovations over the past 15 years, but it hasn’t really added much space. The track is about 7,300 yards away now as a par-72, and it should look very similar to what it did in 2015.
This is the typical bonding golf course, with bunkers looking like not at all fun and rough, well, like really tall grass.
The biggest challenge for players this week will be any potential bad weather. 15-year-old Zach Johnson won here in 2015, with two of his tours in the ’70s.
