The Open 2017
« on: July 17, 2017, 01:45:09 PM »
Almost upon us again, it's definitely one of my favourite sporting events every year.

It's one of the most open Opens  :D I can remember with most bookies going 14/1 the field... I haven't really studied the betting yet but will have a few speculations. I'm not sure what the forecast is but if it's calm I might chance Rory, he's in a similar vein of form as he was the last time he won it when I'd a decent few quid on him at 20s!

Was thinking McIlroy, he hit 3 under on the front 9 on Friday, which shows hes not far of. Think I seen him at 16 this morning. Got Harrington at 50/1. Discount Saturday there and he's in great form.

Skybet paying 10 places. McIlroy 18/1 with them as well

I'm going with Patrick Reed - 66/1

Not too many have won a major with the form McIlroy has coming into it

I think it's too soon for him. The USPGA is made for him though as can be seen by the very low odds on him. He hasn't got his game going yet as he hasn't played enough competitions and he definitely needs to hang on for a few weekends before I'd be punting him.

Harrington bound to be worth a sneaky bet his form is OK and it's a course that suits him! Sergio I think won't do much more having won the Masters although DJ and Spieth are sure to be there or thereabouts as well.

Looking forward to it as well I'm sick of losing money on golf I might just leave the gambling this time!

Will be there on Saturday and Sunday, and find that the one player I really hope is there is Harrington - have resigned myself to the very real risk that Rory won't even make the cut.

Weather looking a bit showery for those days - a bit far out I know but not looking great for spectators  :(

Sky are live from the course every afternoon this week, they just gave a not very positive weather forecast with it getting gradually more windy and showery over the weekend..

Big Dazza nailed on again. O'Neill will be lumping on.

Poulter and Kuchar are my main 2. Backed a few mad outsiders also.
