We’re hugely excited for the 2019 Open Championship which is the only golfing major that is played in the United Kingdom. On this occasion, the world’s elite will head to the Royal Portrush Golf Club in Antrim, Northern Ireland, with this country playing host to the Open Championship for just the second time.

Royal Portrush hosted the Open in 1951 and this was the only time where the Open has been hosted outside of England and Scotland before this year’s event. The Dunluce Links course is widely regarded as one of the best golf courses in the world, with all eyes likely to be on one player.

Rory Bidding to Win on Home Soil

Rory McIlroy is currently trading at around the 10/1 mark to win the Claret Jug in 2019 and it’s little surprise that he’s among the favourite to win the 2019 Open Championship. Rory is among the best players in the world and he’s massively excited about the prospect of competing at a course which is clearly dear to his heart.

McIlroy has decided to skip the Irish Open to make sure he’s fully prepared for the Open Championship, with the 29-year-old admitting that landing the Claret Jug at this golf course would mean more to him than completing a career Grand Slam.

“If there is ever a year when I feel I can miss the Irish Open, it’s this year,” McIlroy told the BBC. “If I was to play the Irish Open, the Open Championship would be my third event in a row. For me, that’s not the best way to prepare for what could be the biggest event of my life.”

McIlroy knows Portrush like the back of his hand and will be back on native soil where the crowds will be flocking to see their national hero, with Rory determined to enjoy the experience but ultimately win the Open Championship for a second time at a course where he’s clearly at home.

Tiger Woods Trading as Favourite for Claret Jug

Tiger Woods has won the Open Championship on three occasions, with the American having triumphed in 2000, 2005 and 2006 although it’s worth bearing in mind that it’s been thirteen years since the 43-year-old has lifted the Claret Jug and this tournament might come at the wrong time for the legendary player.

Woods will be playing his fourth major and might have exerted himself a great deal in the PGA Championship and Open Championship, which comes fairly soon after his Masters triumph where he was able to secure a Green Jacket for the fifth occasion.

Tiger was able to tie sixth in the Open last year after a two year hiatus out of the competition, while his previous two appearances saw the American miss the cut after finishing in 69th in 2014. This sort of data suggests that it might be a tall order for the legend of golf to get among the leaders.

Francesco Molinari Could Make Strong Title Defence

Molinari is trading at 25/1 to win at Royal Portrush and he will be in no mood to relinquish his Open Championship title. The Italian continues to improve and is now among the top golf players in the world, with the Ryder Cup hero of 2018 having enjoyed a two-shot victory at Carnoustie last summer.

Molinari is hugely popular with golf spectators and it’s worth bearing in mind that his play at Carnoustie was outstanding to the degree that he didn’t drop a shot during his final two rounds at the Scottish course. The diminutive European didn’t drop a shot during his final 37 holes.

The Italian’s temperament is rock solid and rarely wavers, with the 36-year-old looking forward to the challenge and he might actually benefit from a scorched course rather than inclement conditions. His all-round game is top rate and many will think he’s an each-way bet to nothing.

Could We See a New Name on the Claret Jug?

Francesco Molinari, Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson, Zach Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods are some of the previous winners that will be returning in search of further Open Championship glory, although there’s a decent chance that we will see a first-time Open winner at Portrush.

Dustin Johnson has fared well in the Open Championship before and seems to adjust well to the links conditions in the United Kingdom, with the American trading at 14/1 to lift the Claret Jug and follow in the footsteps of many of his compatriots who have done this previously.

Justin Rose is also among the favourites to win the Open Championship and the Englishman is sure to get a warm reception on every hole at Portrush, while he’s often found making a late charge on the final day. Ian Poulter is another Ryder Cup hero that announced a resurgence by playing well at the Masters and he’s available at a big price.

Brooks Koepka is a serial winner of major golf tournaments and Rickie Fowler is another American who has regularly made a splash on this side of the Atlantic, with the latter yet to win a major championship and it doesn’t seem to be getting any easier to claim the spoils given the level of competition.

Many think it’s a matter of time before Jon Rahm wins a major championship and the Spaniard clearly has time on his hands, with an aggressive style of play likely to work well around the links course. Sergio Garcia has come close in the Open Championship before and is available at a big price to compete here.

Look for Extra Places on Open Championship

Many customers like placing each-way bets on the Open Championship considering it’s fairly hard to pick out a winner amidst a big field of talented golfers. Each-way betting means that you can back a golfer and make money if they manage to finish high up the leaderboard.

Well ahead of the Open Championship, you might typically only see ¼ odds for the first four places when it comes to each-way betting. However, the bookmakers will start to create more attractive place terms when we approach the tournament.

It’s good to hunt around for a bookie that is offering the best possible place terms. You might get an operator offering eight places for a particular tournament and some even go as big as ten places. It’s a great way of making money without needing to back the winner.

Open Championship Betting Tips

We’re going to swerve Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy at the head of the betting market, with the latter clearly desperate to win in Ireland although that doesn’t always equate to producing a quality performance over four days. However, Dustin Johnson is someone who can go close to landing his first Claret Jug at Portrush.

DJ missed the cut in 2018 although he’s previously performed well in this tournament, enjoying three top-ten performances amongst others. This American has demonstrated that he can cope with all manner of elements to prosper in tough conditions.

We’re also getting with Francesco Molinari who illustrated a love for links golf when triumphing at Carnoustie twelve months previously and the Italian is just so adept at playing steady golf in that metronomic fashion.

We’ll throw in Matt Kuchar at a much bigger price. The likeable American nearly won two years ago before a stirring comeback from Jordan Spieth and it would be little surprise to see “Kooch” in the mix on the final day.
