2017 Open Championship Preview

Betting Preview FOr The 2017 Open Championship

We preview the 2017 Open Championship which gets underway this Thursday at Royal Birkdale.

The idiosyncratic joys of links golf come to full fruition this week with the premier golfing event of the year - at least from a European perspective - in the Open Championship. Henrik Stenson’s sensational duel with Phil Mickelson at Troon last year was one of the finest displays of competitive golf in recent memory. Don’t go expecting a score of -20 this week, however. Royal Birkdale has a reputation for displaying some of the more vengeful aspects of links golf. With over 120 highly treacherous bunkers and fescue that would make Erin Hills blush, Birkdale should be a course that rewards discipline over ambition.

The Aberdeen Asset Scotish Open Betting Preview

Our golf scribe previews this week's European Tour event, the Aberdeen Asset Scottish Open.

This week will see yet another illustrious edition of what is fast becoming a rather intriguing Rolex series. You have to hand it to the European Tour organisers. They have gone through inordinate pains to keep the tour competitive with the grand rewards on offer in the states, and the last three tournaments have been a testament to that success. Obviously, preparation for the Open Championship has been partially responsible for the deluge of great players jumping the pond, but I don’t quite remember seeing such great fields in three consecutive weeks in Europe for quite some time.

The Dubai Duty Free Irish Open 2017 Preview


The Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Betting Preview The European Tour heads for Ireland this week for the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. 

The Portstewart Golf Club plays host to the nomadic Dubai Duty Free Irish Open this week, as hosted by Tiger Woods’ successor to the crown of world’s biggest drawcard in the sport: Rory McIlroy. McIlroy’s 5 wood into the heart of the 18th green at the K Club last season was one of the most indelible moments of the European calendar. One has to say, this week’s lineup in Northern Ireland bears testament to the amount of work that Rory has done in elevating the status of the tournament. This week’s roster has the beating of the PGA Tour lineup for the week and could be the strongest field thus far this season.
