British Open 2019 — Preview, Odds, and Predictions 0

Posted on July 17, 2019 by John Harris

The Open Championship is an annual golf tournament, the oldest of the four major golf tournaments in professional golf, and the only major one that takes place outside the US. This year’s edition of the British Open is set to begin on July 18. 

It’s been 68 years since the British Open was held at the Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Ireland, and the challenging track should put 156 top-ranked players to test. World #1 Brooks Koepka has won four major championships since the start of the 2017 season, including a win at the PGA Championship. Accordingly, he is the top favorite to win the tournament at 8.00 (888Sport), while the course record-holder Rory Mcllroy is trailing at 9.00. Last year’s winner Francesco Molinari is listed at 21.00, and the three-time British Open champion Tiger Woods is capped at 13.00.

Brooks Koepka has finished in the top 2 in five of the last six Majors. The only exception was the 2018 British Open when he finished tied for 39th.

The Open Championship is the final PGA major of the year and will feature an extremely talented field that includes former champions like Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Hendrik Stenson, Zach Johnson, and Darren Clarke.

There will be plenty of action during the tournament, as well as a lot of opportunities for you to bet and make some serious cash.

      In a career that started in 1956 and ended in 1976, the Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month was never really a leading man, but he seemed to be part of the supporting cast for many huge moments in NFL history.

      The second overall pick in the 1956 NFL Draft out of Michigan State, Earl Morrall joined a San Francisco 49ers team that already included the famous “Million Dollar Backfield” of Y.A. Tittle, Hugh McElhenny, Joe Perry and John Henry Johnson.

      Morrall started four games during his rookie season, but just before the start of the 1957 season was traded along with guard Mike Sandusky to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for linebacker Marv Matuszak and two first-round draft picks.
