Open Odds



GOLF: The Open Championship-Practice RoundPhoto Attribution: US Presswire

It’s “wake up at four in the morning to catch the midday tee times” time of the year again and plenty of OSU fellas are in the hunt at Royal Lytham & St. Annes.

Here are the odds going into tomorrow:

Tiger – 4/1
Field (anyone else) – 7/1
Rory – 10/1
Westwood – 15/1
Donald – 15/1
Sergio – 30/1
McDowell – 30/1
Mahan – 40/1
Mickelson – 40/1
Fowler – 40/1
Bubba – 50/1
Kuchar – 60/1
Van Pelt – 60/1
Howell – 150/1
Noren – 150/1

Fowler has gone T14 and T5 the last two years at the Open and the things he does well – ball striking, greens in regulation, and staying steady – are all things Open championships rewards. The kids, I believe, (and Tony Allen) call them grinders.

The rest of the Cowboys, including Mahan (missed 3 of 4 cuts), Van Pelt (never better than 30th), Noren (missed last two cuts), and Howell (missed 4 of 5 cuts) have never had much luck across the pond.

The Big Lead had an interesting post on the fact that we’ve had nine straight major winner and I wouldn’t rule out the man with the orange driver making that number 10.


Head: Luke Donald
Heart: Fowler
