The Open Championship
The Open Championship Odds
The Open Championship is back as Jon Rahm seeks to become the fourth-ever golfer to win the U.S. Open and Open Championship as back-to-back majors in the same year, Dustin Johnson tries to find consistency, and Shane Lowry attempts to defend his 2019 title.
Two years after becoming the second-ever Irishman to win The Open Championship – and the first since Padraig Harrington went back-to-back in 2007 and 2008 – Shane Lowry is still the reigning champion as he seeks to join Harrington and Tiger Woods as the only back-to-back winners in the last 35 years.
In announcing the cancellation of the 2020 Open Championship, Martin Slumbers, chief executive of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, said in April of 2020 they had “heavy hearts” in making the “disappointing” decision to cancel the Open Championship for the first time since World War II forced the cancellation of six straight championships from 1940-45.
One year later, hearts are full as the buzz and excitement return to England in advance of one of the most unique and anticipated annual sporting events in the world. And with a loaded field of past winners, major champions, and rising stars, there are many opportunities to bet online for the 149th Open Championship at Royal St George's Golf Club.
