The 2015 British Open, the 144th Open Championship, will be held at the spiritual home of golf, St Andrews, over the famous Old Course. This will be the 29th time the iconic links has hosted the Open as world number one Rory McIlroy looks to defend the Claret Jug he won at Royal Liverpool last year. Our Open Championship preview has got the latest odds for all the top contenders, as well as our predictions and betting tips for this wonderful tournament.

As with every single event he enters these days, McIlroy will come into the British Open as the clear favourite unless injury rules him out. Currently available at odds of 9/2 his supremacy in world golf is illustrated by the fact that next in the betting comes Adam Scott…way back at odds of 20/1!

Rory, so good he now needs only his first name as introduction, has been immense over the past 18 months. He hits the ball such a huge distance that even when his accuracy isn’t quite perfect, he has such a short approach shot he can still set up the birdies. His mentality has improved massively and his putting the same, and he now strides on to the course expecting to win and possessing a similar sort of fear factor that Tiger had at his peak.

He had spoken of how he didn’t feel an affinity with links golf but his win last year made a mockery of that and his form since last summer suggests he can win anywhere. If the wind really gets up he may struggle but if the sun shines he could bring the Old Course to its knees and he has to be respected.

Despite his magnificent record last season, many will feel that there is better value lower down the betting and if you fancy an each way punt our top betting tip would have to be Martin Kaymer. The German went well the last time the Open was here in 2010, finishing T7 after going into the final round third and this course has a tendency to favour the top players. Kaymer’s accurate driving and the fact he likes links golf – he has won the Scottish Open and the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship (as well as losing a separate play-off in the latter), mean he is brilliant value at odds of 28/1 and we predict he will go very well.

Of course, there are several other great bets and opting for a few of the big guns each way looks prudent with many bookies set to offer enhanced each way terms. We predict Rory is the man to beat but Kaymer has to be our betting tip, with notable mentions to Rickie Fowler (25/1) and Sergio Garcia (25/1 also).
