This year’s British Open betting competition will take place at the hallowed grounds of old St Andrews and there could be no more fitting location for the most prestigious golf betting event in the world. The birth place of golf has hosted its share of British Open odds competition over the years and there could be no more fitting place for the 150th edition of the British Open betting.
Since 1860 the top golf betting pros in the world have been teeing it off on the top courses of the UK competing for the Claret Jug and bragging rights for a year as champion of the most important golf betting event on the planet.
This year we could see low scores early if the weather preliminary weather reports remain accurate. Fog and light rain are expected to kick off the 2010 British Open betting action and that means no wind.
Anyone that has ever bet on the British Open odds can tell you the wind is the biggest single factor that affects scores here at St Andrews. If the fog is hanging around that means no wind and that probably means low scores to open this year’s golf betting competition.
The players that get off to an early start in the morning generally have better playing conditions as the wind usually picks up later in the day. It’s also reported that more inclement weather could come in over the weekend and wreak havoc on the course and the players.
That’s why it’s imperative to catch the early action of this year’s British Open betting action and watch for any players that get ahead early. Typically any player that gets off to a good start by posting solid numbers in the first two days is able to hold on for the wind if the weather turns south over the final two rounds of golf betting.
In addition, old courses such as St Andrews don’t handle the traffic of Major tournament all that well and after a couple days of British Open odds competition the course starts to look a big ragged and play a big ragged, especially if it rains.
Early scores will be very important in this year’s British Open betting action and if anyone can put up low scores on Thursday and Friday they may get a huge boost from Mother Nature in their quest for the Claret Jug.
