2018 Open Championship Results & Odds

Pre-tournament 33-1 chance, Francesco Molinari became the first Italian major winner with victory in the 2018 Open at Carnoustie.  Three shots off the lead going into the final round, while the field frittered away shots in the strong winds, Molinari characteristically played solid golf to par every hole until the 14th.  Birdies on 14 and 18 meant the Italian posted a score which proved beyond the final pairings and took the title by 2-shots.  Not unfancied in the betting having shown strong form on the PGA Tour including a decisive 8-shot victory at the Quicken Loans National - Molinari has progressed from a modest European Tour player to one of the top talents in the world and the title Champion Golfer of 2018 is well deserved.

American trio, Jordan Spieth (pre-tournament 22-1),  Xander Schauffele (110-1) and Kevin Kisner (250-1) tied the lead going into the final round but all struggled in the tougher conditions especially defending champion Spieth who failed to register a birdie in his final round 76.  Along with Schauffele and Kisner in a tie for second were Rory McIlroy (20-1), who made a late charge for he title and Justin Rose (16-1) scraping through the cut with a 10-foot putt on Friday, best of the weekend 64/69 propelled the Englishman up the field.  Tiger Woods (28-1) also made a push on the final day, in a tie for the lead heading in the back-nine, a double-bogey on 11 and bogey on 12 quickly dashed the chances of a 15th major.

Dustin Johnson, who led the betting as 12-1 favourite, struggled missing the cut, along with fancied players Justin Thomas (30-1), Sergio Garcia (35-1) and Jon Rahm (22-1) .  Despite a wet Friday morning and the windy Sunday, conditions were (in Open-terms) relatively benign although Carnoustie still showed her teeth with the winning score of -8 the highest to par since Phil Mickelson's victory in 2013 at Muirfield.

2017 Open Championship Results & Odds

In a wide-open betting market, the pre-tournament 16-1 joint-favourite Jordan Spieth won the 146th Open at Birkdale. It was the American’s third major and he became only the second player after Jack Nicklaus to win three of the four majors before the age of 24.

Spieth took a comfortable three-shot final-round lead over Matt Kuchar, with the rest of the field a further three shots back.  A final day dominated by the two Americans, Kuchar drew level of a faltering Spieth on the 9th and a wild tee-shot by Spieth on the 13th appeared to be handing the title to his fellow American. However with a miraculous recovery on 13 with a bogey-5, have taken an unplayable penalty, Spieth then went five-under for the final five holes for a memorable victory.

Interestingly Matt Kuchar (66-1) had a stellar year as an amateur in 1998 achieving low-amateur at the Masters and US Open (a lot of pre-tournament coverage was around Justin Rose’s Open that year at Birkdale) and like Rose, Kuchar struggled in the pro game only making one cut in the next ten years of majors. Kuchar has since won fourteen PGA titles including the Players and a WGC but second to Spieth was a major best.

China’s Hao-Tong Li (300-1) finished in third-place, rocketing up the leader board with a final-round 63 – which would have been a joint-low in the majors had Branden Grace not set a new record on the Saturday with a 62. Next came Rafa Cabrera-Bello (70-1) and Rory McIlroy (22-1) who finished in a tie for fourth. McIlroy had a disastrous start to the tournament, +5 on the front nine but recovered for a 1st round 71 and despite getting into a strong position for moving day on Saturday, he couldn’t take advantage of benign conditions leaving him too far behind on Sunday.

In a tie for sixth, Branden Grace (66-1), Brooks Koepka (40-1), Alex Noren (50-1) and Marc Leishman (50-1) all would have been well-backed, and rewarded punters who got extra places. Jordan Spieth winning and Rory McIlroy finishing in the places also meant it would have been a successful betting event for plenty.
