The Open Championship each-way betting tips for this week’s golf tournament with the best value golf betting tips.
The Open is the only Major to be played outside of America and this year the Open returns to Hoylake in Wirral.
The last time the Open was staged here was in 2006 when Tiger Woods was the victor on a very emotional day for the former World Number 1.
There have been a few changes to the course since Tiger won here eight years ago, some bunkers have been removed leaving 82 in total.
It appears to be a course that really suits Championship specialists as six of the 11 winners at Hoylake had already won the title at least once before.
Open Championship Each-Way Betting Tips.
Matt Kuchar – bet here at 40/1 with Bet365.
'Kooch' is my headline pick for the Open this week- he is massive value at 40/1 each way which is readily available. The world number five is still searching his first Major title of his career and I feel this could be his week here at Hoylake. Kuchar has been one of the most consistent golfers on the PGA Tour for a number of years now, but he does sometimes struggle to get over the finish line and his total of 11 professional wins outlines this problem as he should have many more victories to his name and makes up my first golf betting tip for The Open 2014. The American has the most top 10's of anybody plying their trade on the finest tour in the world, which shows how talented Matt really is. The course this week looks set up for Matt's game, he is not the biggest hitter on Tour but he is one of the most accurate of the tee which should be a big advantage on this links course, his scrambling stats are also very good and they may be tested here at Hoylake this week.
Zach Johnson – bet here at 50/1 with Coral.
Zach Johnson already has a Major victory on his C.V and it would be no surprise to see the American claim his second Major title this week at Royal Liverpool. Johnson has performed well in the Open the last two seasons were he finished 6th last year at Muirfield and in 2012 he finished inside the top 10 at Royal Lytham which proves he will not be over-awed by the Links golf courses which so many Americans just cannot adapt to. Like my above Open Championship betting tip, Zach Johnson is a precise hitter off the tee and he is currently in the top 10 on tour for driving accuracy. Generally to win this title the key stat is all round ranking and Zach is currently 5th on tour.
Bubba Watson – bet here at 50/1 with Ladbrokes.
Bubba is in search of his second Major of the year after he famously won his second green jacket at the Masters back in April and I feel he is just starting to get to grips with Links golf over the past few seasons. Watson, who initially played poorly on his first few attempts at the Open between 2009 & 2010 has adapted his game over recent seasons and on the last three renewals of this event he has made the cut and now he looks to have the experience to push on and make a claim for the title. Watson is one of the longest hitters on Tour and this may be a disadvantage as the rough will, as always, be very penal for any wayward drives. However, if the American can take note of how Tiger Woods won here eight years ago then I am confident that he will contend come the business end of the tournament. Bubba has had a very good season to date with seven top 10 finishes including two wins. The Par 5's here at Hoylake – holes 5,10,16 and 18 – may determine the winner of this prestigious title as all four holes are reachable and if Watson scores well on these then I can see his name on the Claret Jug come Sunday evening.
Jimmy Walker – bet here at 90/1 with Bet365.
Jimmy has had a fantastic 2013/2014 season to date on the PGA Tour and I think he can bring this form over to the Open this year and maybe surprise a few people this week and win this illustrious event. Walker is currently ranked 1st in the FedEx Cup race after three victories within a five month purple period on the PGA Tour. Jimmy is a long driver of the ball which, as already noted may be a massive bonus this week on the par 5's. Even so, I do worry about his control of the ball especially with the wind conditions around the Hoylake track. If Walker can sort his driving out this week I feel he must stand good value Each Way – the American is a good iron player and he also ranks in the top 10 on the putting stats on the PGA Tour which shows that his all round game is in very good shape leading up to this event. I also like the fact that Walker played in the Scottish Open (as did the last four winners of the Open) where he played reasonable well in Aberdeen, which will have been good preparation for this week’s Open Championship.
