The Open Championship Betting Tips, Offers and Bonuses – 14th to 17th July 2016
The British Open Championship – or simply the Open as it is referred to – takes place at Royal Troon Golf Club from the 14th to 17th July 2016 and promises to be one of the highlights of an already fantastic sporting calendar that has seen the Euros dominate.
The Royal & Ancient do their best to make sure that the Open is only held at the best links courses in the UK. However, it is fair to say that some Open venues are better than others. Thankfully, the host for the 2016 renewal, Royal Troon, is an absolutely classic. Troon is an incredibly historic course that has hosted the Open eight times previously. It is also a true test of links golf. Each player will have their ups and downs during their time at Troon but if the mild weather forecast proves accurate, the world’s best players could rack up some low scores this week.
Here you bring you the best betting offers for the Open Championship to make it a profitable as well as enjoyable weekend of golf. So take your pick from some cracking bonuses and promotions!
We’ll be adding to this feature as and when the best golf betting sites around release their offers so be sure to bookmark this page if you intend to have a bet on the 2016 British Open.

Open Championship Preview and Tips
At around 7,200 yards, Troon is a comparatively short par 71 layout for a major championship. Those who are playing the course for the first time this week will wonder what all the fuss is about after the gentle start which includes three par fours and a par five that will yield plenty of birdies. But, Troon is there ready to bite you as soon as you start to feel comfortable. The stretch of holes around the turn – including the iconic Postage Stamp par three eighth – are difficult and if the wind kicks up on the way in, the back nine can play incredibly long. Add to that around 80 deep bunkers, some very hittable out of bounds areas and nasty bits of rough and you’ve got a course that requires the utmost concentration.
Golf’s Big Four Lead The Way
It’ll be no surprise to followers of golf to see Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth right at the top of the betting market. Any of those four could potentially come up with the goods this week but of the lot, the most attractive option looks to be Day.
The world number one has the game to compete around almost any golf course in the world but there are those who claim he is not a particularly good links player. The fact that he’s never missed the cut at the Open and finished in a tie for fourth last season suggests that view is unfair. He is brilliant with his driving iron and can take full advantage of the shorter holes. He’s also got one of the world’s best short game and is incredibly confident with his putter. Day is the joint favourite but still looks a good price at 9/1 with BetVictor.
US Dominance at Troon to End?
America has provided the last six winners of the Open at Royal Troon. British golf fans will be desperate for that run to be ended and Graeme McDowell could be the man to do just that. At the 2010 he ended a 40-year European drought at the US Open and is playing as well now as at any time since that famous win at Pebble Beach. He has a naturally low ball flight and loves rising to the challenge of links golf. With a spring in his step about his game, GMac should at least go close this week at a tasty 80/1 with Ladbrokes.
