Golf is going through a strange period right now. In what is effectively a post-Tiger world, it was felt that the likes of Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth would fill the superstar’s void. They were then joined by Jason Day and Dustin Johnson and all of a sudden it appeared the game had a “Big Four” that was set to dominate.

Things just haven’t worked out like that, however, with DJ and Rory missing their last two cuts, Spieth failing to make the weekend three times since April and Day dropping to sixth in the world rankings. The Australian, who topped the world rankings in February, has had injury concerns but, like McIlroy and Johnson, he comes to Royal Birkdale having missed the cut in each of his two most recent outings.

In fairness, of the one-time Big Four, only Spieth hasn’t been impacted by injuries. However, the notion that this quartet would dominate now seems almost laughable. The last seven majors have all been won by players who had never previously triumphed in one of the game’s four most important events.

The result of all this ahead of this week’s Open Championship is that we one of the most unpredictable British Opens in years. In Tiger’s heyday he was once quoted at odds of just 5/4 to win the Buick Open and was regularly priced at around 3/1 for the majors.

A quick look at our live odds comparison shows that the shortest priced golfer in the field for this year’s Open is Dustin Johnson at 16/1 (BetVictor). Spieth is priced a shade longer generally but 16/1 (Bet365) is also the best betting odds you’ll get on the Texan. In fact the top 10 in the betting are tightly grouped at odds ranging from those quoted above to just 25/1 for the likes of defending champion Henrik Stenson and in-form Tommy Fleetwood.

Never before have we seen such tight clustering in the outright winner betting for a major and whether this is indicative of the immense strength in depth of the modern game or the lack of genuine stars is a matter for debate.

However, that’s a debate for another day as far as we are concerned and the key issue is simply how can we profit from betting on the 2017 Open? Well, with the odds and market as they are we feel a number of each way bets is the only way to play this. More and more of the best golf betting sites out there offer brilliant enhanced each way terms and that only strengthens are view that this is the way to go.

Our first port of call is Englishman Tommy Fleetwood, available at 25/1 with Coral, who pay each way bets down to a huge eight places. Fleetwood is in the ascendency right now, at a career best 14th. He comes here following four top 10s, one of those a win at the Open de France, another a fourth at the US Open. Born in Southport, he is a local lad and now is the time for him to go well having failed to make the cut in his only three Open appearances.

Our second tip is Padraig Harrington at 66/1 with Coral and William Hill. The Irish golfer won the Open at Birkdale in 2008. A run of five missed cuts in six saw his rankings plummet but he tied for fourth at the Scottish Open last time out and was a top 20 finish in the US recently too. 66/1 are huge outright winner odds and whilst he may not have the game to go all the way he can definitely go close.

Our final each way betting tip for the 2017 Open Championship is Paul Casey at 35/1 with Bet365. The Englishman plays most of his golf in the US but he was T7 in the 2008 Open, tied for third in 2010 at St Andrews and finished sixth in the Masters this year. His game is well suited to the course and those odds look long given four top 10s in his last seven events have moved him 15th in the world rankings.
