The Open Championship
July 18 - July 21, 2019
The Royal Portrush Golf Club, Dunluce Course, Country Entrim, Northern Ireland

Some of the best pro golfers around the world return to the green this Thursday, July 18th. The Open Championship, also known as the British Open or just The Open will be held at Dunluce Course in Northern Ireland. The Open is the fourth and final major of the season.

So far this year, Americans have dominated the majors, winning all three to date. Tiger Woods won the Masters Tournament. Brooks Koepka won the PGA Championship. Gary Woodland won the U.S. Open. All three of those events were held on U.S. soil. Will USA pull off the sweep?

The last time that happened was in 1977 when Tom Watson, Hubert Green, Lanny Wadkins took home the trophies.

Rory McIlroy (+850) is the frontrunner to win The Open. McIlroy is from Northern Ireland where the event will take place. McIlroy has some history at The Royal Portrush Golf Club. At 16 years old, he shot a new competitive course record score of 61. He won The Open in 2014.

Europe (-110) is the favorite to win the Region of Winner future. USA is a +100 underdog while the Rest of the World sits at +650.

Brooks Koepka (+900) is the second favorite to win the tournament. He has had a strong year. In addition to his PGA Championship, Koepka finished second in this year's Masters Tournament. Koepka also came close to winning The Open two years ago when he tied for sixth place. He has finished sixth or better in six majors since 2017.

Francesco Molinari is the defending champion. He has two top 20 majors finishes this year. Molinari tied for fifth at this years Masters and tied for 16th at the U.S. Open. Last year's win at The Open is his only Majors victory.

Fan favorite Tiger Woods is a +1800 underdog to win. Tiger has won the tournament four times in his career. His last victory was in 2006.

There aren't too many surprises in golf. You'll see a lot of the same top players rotate wins. Every few years there's a newcomer that makes a splash and begin his reign. This year, I'm rooting for the Americans to complete the sweep. Brooks Koepka is that hot hand. Koepka +900 and USA at +100 is where my money's going. McIlroy may be the most logical bet here, and I suggest making that bet too, but 'Merica!
