2023 The Open Championship SBG Overview

Now it all comes down to this, the final men’s major sportsbook championship of 2023. The best players in the world are set to take on Royal Liverpool for the 151st Open Championship from July 20-23. Cameron Smith, a member of the LIV Golf League, is the reigning Champion Golfer of the Year. Cause by his come-from-behind victory at St. Andrews over Cam Young and Rory McIlroy.

Overall, Smith has made the cut in all three majors this year. He tied for 34th at the Masters and ninth at the PGA. Also, he finished fourth at the US Open. Meanwhile, McIlroy grabbed second at Los Angeles Country Club. Now he is looking for his first major win since the 2014 Open. Consider that win was held at Royal Liverpool. At the onset, McIlroy opened as the betting favorite.

2023 The Open Championship Top Contenders

Rory McIlroy +800

Despite some painful near-misses and concerns about his wedge play, Rory McIlroy is knocking on the door. He has seven top-tens in his last nine major starts. Last month, The Northern Irishman came agonizingly close to ending his major drought at the US Open. But he finished just one shot behind American Wyndham Clark. Since lifting the Claret Jug in 2014, McIlroy has four top-five Open finishes.

Jon Rahm +1000

Of course, Rahm has already enjoyed major glory this year, winning at Augusta in April. However, the 28-year-old is not enjoying the red-hot form of the season’s early months. But he remains a strong candidate with no real weaknesses in his game.  Rahm has never really been in contention at the Open. His T3 at Royal St George’s in 2021 is only top 10 in the major.

Scottie Scheffler +1000

Naturally, Scottie Scheffler is the World No 1 and the game’s best player from tee to green. But he has been held back in recent weeks by a cold putter. So far in 2023, the American has finished no worse than T11. He has three third place finishes and coming runner-up at this year’s PGA Championship. In his two outings at the Open, Scheffler has finished T-8 and T-21.

Brooks Koepka +1200

Now, the American Koepka has five major titles to his name. Following his victory at the PGA Championship at Oak Hill back in May.  Koepka needs the Claret Jug to complete the career grand slam before rivals McIlroy and Jordan Spieth.  Four top-10 finishes at the Open suggest Koepka is likely to be a big player at Hoylake.

Cameron Smith +2000

The defending champion, he shot a final year-round of 64 to beat Rory McIlroy and claim the Claret Jug in St Andrew.
