That can be a handy thing to know when handicapping players and setting the Open Championship odds, but with only a small handful of courses used in the hosting of the Open Championship betting odds, most of the handicappers have an intimate knowledge of each. This year the Royal Birkdale Golf Club will host the Open Championship odds and if history is any guide, it should be a very tough outing for the golfers.
When it comes to great courses to host events such as the Open Championship odds, you really can’t do much better than the Royal Birkdale. Birkdale is one of a handful of UK courses that are used in the hosting of the Open Championship betting odds on a rotational basis. Since 1954, when this great course hosted the Open Championship odds for the first time it has been the host of the Open Championship betting odds eight times. This year will be the ninth time that Birkdale will host the Open Championship odds.
While no one doubts the greatness of the course, the home town British crowd might be slightly disappointed with the Open Championship odds location this year. You see, in over a half century of hosting the Open Championship odds, no British player has ever won the Open Championship betting odds whilst the event has been held at the Royal Birkdale Golf Club. The list of winners of the Open Championship odds here is long and distinguished including greats like Lee Trevino, Arnold Palmer, Johnny Miller and the great Peter Thompson who took the Open Championship odds five times. But there are no players from the UK that have won that trophy when the Open Championship has been contested there.
While the odds would seem to favor a British win in the Open Championship odds at Royal Birkdale, history would seem mightily opposed to such a thing. Only time will tell whether the British can shake off their jinx this year in the Open Championship odds. With top talent representing the country throughout the Open Championship odds books, it would seem that they’ve got as good a shot as anyone now that Tiger Woods is out.
