With two major tournaments in the books, PGA betting fans should be all set for arguably the most exciting of the big time events on the calendar, the British Open. We’re set to make our British Open picks for the fourth and final major of the year, starting on Thursday!
British Open Preview
Dates: Thursday, July 14th – Sunday, July 17th
Location: Royal St. George’s, Sandwich, Kent, England
Rory McIlroy (+665) at SportBet.com: Simply put, there’s no way that we can make our British Open Picks without at least thinking about including McIlroy in the bunch. The youngster has really done a great job replacing Tiger Woods as the face of the PGA Tour at this point, and he is sure to be a contender in this one as well. Remember that it isn’t just the US Open that McIlroy played that well at. He really should have won the Masters before choking away the title on the final day. However, he really has made no mistakes since that point and should be considered a huge threat to take down the title once again. McIlroy is absolutely a deserved British Open favorite.
Phil Mickelson (+4800) at SportBet.com: Doesn’t it seem odd that Lefty is this much of an underdog in this tournament? It almost seems like it’s cliché to take Mickelson in this tournament, but we know that he does have the goods to win a career Grand Slam, and this is one of the jewels that he is missing. We know that the game where even par might win the tournament isn’t really one which suits Mickelson the best, but at these British Open odds, we simply cannot pass. Mickelson has a great price here at 48 to 1.
Steve Stricker (+4000) at SportBet.com: For three straight years now, Stricker has been the hot golfer on tour, winning the John Deere Classic in the lead up week to the British Open. This year, Stricker has really been playing some of the best golf of his life, and he really due to be able to shine in a major. This is a bit of a trendy golf pick, just as Nick Watney was in the Masters at the outset of the season, but in this case, we definitely feel that 40 to 1 justifies taking Stricker to be able to stay in the limelight in one of the biggest events in his career.
