The 150th Open Championship gets underway on Thursday from the home of golf itself and it promises to be a fascinating renewal. The iconic St Andrews links course will not provide the most difficult test for the world’s best golfers and with decent weather expected we should see some low scores.
The par 72 course measures some 6700 yards but the course’s main defence is generally the weather and in particular the wind. However the dry and calm conditions forecast could make this a real low-scoring event.
Fourteen of the world’s top-ranked fifteen golfers have played links golf at the Scottish Open last week at North Berwick American Xander Schauffele winning and many others such as Patrick Cantlay, Matt Fitzpatrick, Tommy Fleetwood and Jordan Speith seemingly honing their game ahead of this week’s Major. Schauffle is in superb form having also won the JP McManus Pro-Am last week and the Travelers Championship recently. Currently best odds of 16/1 with William Hill paying EW 9 places, Schauffele is definitely the in form player.
Only Rory McIlroy of the world’s elite players chose not to compete at the Renaissance Club and whether or not that will be advantageous or otherwise is anyone’s guess but the tournament favourite is too short at odds of 10/1 in what is a very open contest. However, it is a fact that 8 out of the last 10 Open Championship winners did play the week before.
Mcilroy had to withdraw from the tournament with an ankle injury the last time it was held at St Andrews in 2015 but has some great form here and will undoubtedly be in the thick of the action.
The 2015 St Andrews Open Championship renewal threw up a surprise winner after Zach Johnson prevailed in a three way play off after he finished on -15 alongside Marc Leishman and Louis Oosthuizen.
Masters winner and current world No.1 Scottie Scheffler missed the cut in the Scottish Open as did Justin Thomas and Colin Morikawa but all can be expected to perform far better this week. The odds on these 3 have all drifted due to the missed cut but at current odds last year’s Open Championship Morikawa makes the most appeal at odds of 25/1.
Colin Morikawa 25/1 EW 12 Places Paddy Power
Morikawa is currently ranked 4 in the world and has already won two Majors including the 2021 Open Championship at Royal St Georges which he won by two shots from Jordan Speith with a closing round of 66. So far in 2022 the 25 year old has finished 5th in both the Masters and the US Open as well as 2nd at the Genesis Invitational. Odds of 25/1 with Paddy Power are too big to pass over.
Matt Fitzpatrick 22/1 EW 9 Places William Hill
Also in terrific form at the moment is Matt Fitzpatrick who followed up his sensational win in the US Open with a very solid display at the Scottish Open finishing T6th after a level par last round. Fitzpatrick is ultra consistent and has seven other Top 10 finishes in 2022 including 5th place at the USPGA and also finished a very creditable 14th in the 2022 US Masters. The Sheffield star has a game ideally suited to links golf and his extra distance off the tee this year will enable him to reduce many of the holes at St Andrews to very short distances for his approach shots
Fleetwood 28/1 EW 10 Places Betfred
Our third tip for the 2022 Open Championship is Tommy Fleetwood, well known to many and a player who excels in the top events and links golf in particular. Fleetwood finished T4th in last week’s Scottish Open following a closing 67 and was runner up in the 2020 Scottish Open.
Tommy also has a great record at St Andrews with two 2nd place finishes in the Alfred Dunhill and was runner up in the 2020 Open Championship at Portrush. 2022 has seen Fleetwood T5th in the USPGA and a very creditable 14th at Augusta for the US Masters. Whilst not a prolific winner Fleetwood has the game to win a Major and at odds of 28/1 each way with 10 places at Betfred is well worth an investment.
All four days of the Open Championship will be shown live on the dedicated Sky Sports Golf Channel in the U.K with live coverage beginning at 7am on Thursday.
The 2022 and 150th Open Championship commences Thursday 14th July and concludes on Sunday 17th July.
