The 150th Open Championship will take place this week. The Old Course in St Andrews, Scotland will host the tournament and is believed to be the oldest golf course in the world. The first round begins on Thursday July 14 and will continue until Sunday July 17.
The betting favorite in 2022 is Rory McIlroy who has +900 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook to win. He is followed by Jon Rahm (+1100), Scottie Scheffler (+1200), Justin Thomas (+1600) and Spieth (+1600) as golfers with the top five to win. Collin Morikawa won in 2021 and has +2000 chances to be the first consecutive Open Championship winner since Padraig Harrington won in 2007 and 2008.
The weather improves throughout the week, with the first round having the greatest chance of precipitation. For successful golfers, there is both good news and bad news. The good news is that you can compete for golf’s immortality by winning the 2022 Open. The bad news is that the absolute worst day for the wind will be Saturday. It will be steady at 21 mph and gust even higher, which will be tough to play.
