The Open Free Bets
The Open is the oldest of golf’s four major championships and is consequently shrouded in tradition and prestige. It is the tournament that all amateurs and professionals aspire to and the Claret Jug is the most instantly recognisable prize in golf.
The Open free bets can be used to bet on any aspect of the championships, whether that be the winner of the tournament, if a player will make the cut or the winning score. All bookmakers allow punters to use their Golf Free Bets on The Open Championship with many also introducing special offers and increased place terms ahead of the event.
The very first Open Championship was played at Prestwick Golf Club in Scotland in 1860 and was won by Willie Park Snr. The first 12 Opens were played at Prestwick before it was then taken to St Andrews and Musselburgh and as the years have gone by more and more British courses have been added to The Open roster. Every fifth Open Championship continues to be staged at St Andrews with the intervening years alternating between eight other links courses in Scotland and England. Courses currently encompassed on The Open Championship roster include Carnoustie, Turnberry, Royal St George’s, Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club, Royal Troon and Muirfield.
Betting on The Open Championship
If you are a punter looking to use your The Open free bets then there are plenty of markets for you to contemplate. The Outright Winner market is the most popular and allows punters to predict which player will lift the Claret Jug on Sunday evening. Nick Faldo was the last Englishman to be victorious at The Open as he came home in front in 1992 at Muirfield, while Darren Clarke was the latest Briton to claim the title with his victory at Royal St George’s in 2011.
Patriotic punters can choose to use their The Open free bets to back the nationality of the winner. If you think it’s about time an Englishman won a Claret Jug, but can’t decide whether it will be Luke Donald, Lee Westwood or Justin Rose, then it may be more sensible to bet on England in the Winning Nationality market. If you think the Americans will continue their incredible success in the competition then back the US, or perhaps it is the South Africans you fancy seen as they have claimed three titles since the turn of the millennium.
Local knowledge can also play a bit part in punting on The Open Championship. If you are aware that the course is playing particularly difficult then it may be wise to bet on the winning score being relatively high. If you know that the rough has been cut short and the greens are soft, then you could bet on a low score winning the title.
Other opportunities to use The Open free bets include betting on the first, second and third round leaders, 18-hole two-balls and three-balls, top 10 finishes, whether there will be a hole-in-one and if the tournament will be decided by a play-off.
