What are the best Open Championship free bets?
If you are a punter looking to use your free bet on The Open 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 in July.
Nick Faldo was the last Englishman to be victorious at The Open as he came home in front in 1992 at Muirfield, while Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy was the latest Briton to claim the title with his victory at Royal Liverpool in 2014.
Patriotic punters can choose to use their Open Championship 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 Tommy Fleetwood 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. With Rory McIlroy in the mix backing a British Winner would certainly be a good bet and we'll have the latest odds and tips on his form here at FREEbets.org.uk.
Local knowledge can also play a bit part when betting 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 free bets on The Open 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
- Will the tournament will be decided by a play-off

Since 1860, The Open has been played over some of the world’s most cherished links courses and has produced a remarkable legacy of great champions. It is the oldest and most international championship in professional golf and the Claret Jug - first presented in 1873 - is one of the most iconic trophies in all of sport.
The very first Open Championship 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.
