Betting Note: Betting amounts are based on confidence level. My normal betting amounts are $125, $250 & $500, although I will go as low as $62.50 and as high as $1,000 on occasion. My most common bet is $125 and if you classify that as 1 unit, then I have made a 667.93 unit profit from 2014-2020. (full stats)

E/W (Each-Way) bets means you split that amount. So if it is a $250 E/W bet, that means $125 on them to win, $125 on them to place (Usually in the Top 5).

The Open Championship – not to be confused with the US Open – takes place from Thursday, July 20th through Sunday, July 23rd in 2017.

Known primarily as The Open, or the British Open in North America, this prestigious tournament is taking place this year at the Royal Birkdale Golf Club located in Southport, England.

9 previous Open Championships have been played at this course. The most recent one was back in 2008. That was a great one as Padraig Harrington defended his Open Championship title with a win as he slowly gained on the field and ended with a 69 on the final day.

This is a tough course based on the fact that when Harrington won he ended at +3. Back in 1998 Mark O’Meara and Brian Watts went to a playoff after ending at exactly par.

So I get the feeling we won’t be seeing anything close to Henrik Stenson and his -20 score from last year!

First of all if you’re looking to bet the Open Championship 2017 here’s where we recommend:

Where To Bet The Open:

Special Note to Americans: The majority of my bets rely on each-way betting which is an insurance bet on the golfer to place in the top 5. Unfortunately no American sportsbooks offer that option. I recommend betting at Bovada where you can choose to bet "To Win" and also "Top 5". Split your bet over both of those. Plus get $250 in Free Bets - Only available at Bovada.

Odds are subject to change – one big factor can be players performances in the tournaments leading up to The Open.

It’s very interesting to see however that the Top 3 by far are Rory, Spieth and Johnson.

Out of the three, Dustin Johnson is the only one to actually win the Open Championship which was back in 2015.

Last year saw us go pretty much break even with Sergio Garcia cashing:

And I’ll be hoping to follow that up, and my recent Majors history, by correctly predicting the Open Championship winner.

Current form seems to be the big factor in the Majors these years. No surprise really. However I’m going to be spending the next couple of weeks prior to the Open Championship looking at the previous tournaments here. It’s a very tough course and it’s going to be interesting to see what the main factors are.

So stay tuned for the Open Championship 2017 Betting Tips very soon.

Since 2014 I've been providing free golf tips on a weekly basis. Each tournament analysis, research and writing the betting tips takes over 10 hours per tournament. That doesn’t include watching each tournament and taking notes etc. It's why I do less and less non-PGA tips these days.

I’ve delivered a lot of big winners over the years, and all I ask is if you appreciate the work I put in and so I can continue to keep the tips free, a donation is highly recommended and much appreciated.

While I obviously make enough money from my golf bets, this sort of financial support would motivate me to write more content on here. This would include golf prop bets like first round leader, head vs head and much more plus daily fantasy golf articles. Cheers!
