Wide open Open

Sweden's Henrik Stenson

The Open begins this week at Royal Birkdale and promises to be one of the most wide open majors in living memory.

Some bookmakers are starting their pricing at 16/1 the field, with Americans Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler leading the market.

BetVictor spokesperson Charlie McCann said: “When Dustin Johnson won the US Open last summer there was talk of a Johnson dynasty – yet here we are less than 12 months on and we are betting 16/1 the field in the Open Championship.

“History suggests Birkdale can throw up a bit of a surprise with Ian Baker-Finch champion back in 1991 and it would be no surprise if the layers got another result on the Lancashire coast this weekend.”
