Odds Analysis

Rory McIlroy +575

With the season he had you might as well put McIlroy at the top of the odds board every week. There are a few other reasons for backing Rory, other than the obvious fact that he’s on an absolute heater right now. After coming so close in this event with three – yes, three – runner-up showings, McIlroy badly wants a win. He also edged out Brooks Koepka for the PGA Tour Player of the Year award and wants to overtake him for the world No. 1 ranking.

Shane Lowry +1553

With his win in The Open at Royal Portrush still fresh in his and everybody’s mind, Lowry returns to the links for the first time since that major title. He took some time off after his victory and returned to capture T11 at Wentworth going 69-66 over the weekend. That looks like just a warm-up for what’s ahead. Lowry has had success in this event with a T3 in 2013, T6 in 2014, and three top-25s from 2016 through 2018.

Bernd Wiesberger +2759

There’s a lot to like about Wiesberger and his odds are inviting. Finally getting over the injury bug that plagued him last year the Austrian broke through with a win in Denmark in May to start a nice run. He also won the Scottish Open and was runner-up at the Irish Open. He followed his first MC in two months with a top-5 at the European Open and had a top-20 at Wentworth. Second in the Race to Dubai, he needs to keep playing well and he’s enjoyed success in this event with two top-10s among his four top-15s in his last four starts.

Tyrrell Hatton +2784

No one has dominated this tournament like Hatton, who went back-to-back in 2016 and 2017 by carding a combined 47-under. A repeat looked like a lock last year when he had a five-shot lead starting the final nine. He caved down the stretch conceding first and settling for runner-up. He returned from a layoff and missed the cut last week, but he is a links performer and has a good payday should he win again.

Ross Fisher +8550

With odds greater than 6/1 we saw Danny Willett topple the field at last week’s BMW PGA Championship. So why not take a look further down the odds board for a hefty payday. One guy that stands out is Fisher, who like McIlroy has come so close to winning this event with back-to-back runner-up finishes in 2016 and 2017 and three total. He’s quietly going about his business with 3 for 3 entering, though nothing better than a T31.


Old Course at St. Andrews – 7,318-yards, par-72
Championship Course at Carnoustie – 7,394-yards, par-72
Kingsbarns Golf Links – 7,227-yards, par-72

This is a true test of links golf with the tournament contested over three courses. Like we’ve seen in the past the pro-am format will allow for easier pin placements, which benefits the pros and is a courtesy for the ams. There have also been minor increases to the length at St. Andrews and Carnoustie from previous years, though it shouldn’t have a severe impact on the field. What will come into play is the weather, and mainly the wind, which is always unpredictable. In the event of high winds green speeds need to be slower. After playing each course over the first three days, those who make it through get one last crack on the Old Course on Sunday.
