British Open Championship Betting Odds news… It is considered to be Golf’s Premier Major. Many ask why? Basically there are five reasons why it is the first as 1) it’s the major championship, 2) This is where the way Golf was to be played. 3) Every great player has won the British Open. 4) It does not take up the entire weekend. 5) The tournament is played on the most historic courses on this planet! The British Open over the years has been played 139 times with 11 years of the 150 were years when it was not played due to World War I and World War II.
Many wonder how the golf course came to be 18 holes. Going back to 1764 The Saint Andrew course had 22 holes, 11 holes going out and 11 holes coming back. The players decided that the last four holes were too short and this reduced the number from 22 to 18 that is today standard round for a golf course. This Saint Andrews Course is the largest golfing complex in all of Europe.
Some 15 previous Open Champs will play with odds going from 6-1 to 1000-1. The course is very much greener for the match than in the past, and the old course without a breeze is defenseless because of the fairways that are like mall parking lots (wide open spaces). Any sign of winds can force players to hit shots they normally don’t shoot which can lead to all types of unexpected results and a lot of entertainment for those watching on the tube.
