Open Championship Golf Course Preview – Royal St. George’s Golf Club

Each year, The Open Championship is played overseas in the United Kingdom. This year, the tournament is being played at Royal St. George’s Golf Club in Sandwich, Kent, England.  Here is a look at each and every hole, where the PGA’s The Open Championship will take place in 2021.


Odds to win The Open Championship 2021

There is nothing more important to a sports bettor than getting the best odds, which is why it is important to shop around when betting on golf. Arguably, it is the most important when wagering on golf because of the nature of the sport. For example, the majority of golf bettors wager on outrights for a player to win a given event, but at long odds. This means you could get anywhere from +1200 to +1700 for a given golfer. Since it is tough to pick winners in golf (hence the long odds), you want to maximize your return when you do hit.

Each week, we will provide the opening odds and current odds for the PGA event that week, which gives you the best chance at finding value when placing your bets.
