Researching the history of The Open will help punters make more informed (and therefore smarter) bets.
The Open Championship is the oldest, and one of the most prestigious golf tournaments in the world. The tournament has always been played on links courses - pitting the world's best golfers against nature in all its unforgiving force.
The Open favours players who can adapt to fast-changing conditions, with pre-tournament form an important signpost to success as always. In five of the last seven years, for example, the Claret Jug has been claimed by a player who had won at least one of his previous five events in the build-up. Historically, experienced players have also had an edge in The Open due to the unique nature of the tournament.
To get the best value, consider bookies that have Open Championship betting offers like extra each-way places, where you can secure a profit if your backed player finishes in the top 5-12 places on the leaderboard.
The Open prize fund currently sits at around £10million, with the winner taking home nearly £2million. The 2024 runner-up will land a £1.41m payday and third place will get £731k. All of the golfers who finish in the top 20 at The Open will take home more than £100k each.
