As always I will stick with Rory at 14 - 1 .
Koepka 18- 1.
Grace 60-1.
Hatton 33-1.
Fleetwood 45-1.
Berger 66- 1

Good luck to anyone who has a wager on the outcome .

Its ok G B but thank you for your support.
For his information the bets i have had on the open came from my winnings on the euro trophy .
Looking forward to watching it on sky sports .
I havent played at St Georges but visited it when i was staying in Ramsgate a few years ago.
Awesome course ..
Keep safe G B .

Perhaps so whups.
He does enjoy links golf witness his victory at Birkdale in the Open a few years ago.
So many with chances and sometimes its the luck with the weather .
Good luck if your having a bet..

If benign conditions prevail i would imagine 10 under but should it blow 6 under perhaps or even less .

Class player whups.
Watched him and he is well up for it .

Its anyones call right now.
Links courses rely on the wind blowing .
Without it they have little defence ,hence the terrific scoring .

Funnily enough i just switched on the t v when i came in after my morning long walk and caught Rory at the 5th were he dropped a shot .
At his best Rory makes things happen rather than now when he seems to be just hoping they will.
They will have set the course up to be much tougher today.
Woudnt like to call it but i am happy that 4 of my bets are under par including D JOHNSON who is playing well .

Well after a five minute study I got four that finished under par. Well done to the winner.

Good selection BRW.
A worthy champion in Morakawa.
I am well happy with 3 of my wagers in top 11 paying 1/5 th odds including berger at a tasty 66-1 which gives me a nice profit .

It's not with golf winnings is it? For the last 4 years you've picked six players for the open and never picked the winner yet lolol

When you select and bet each way you buffoon it pays off given the books pay 11 places 1/5 th odds .
It bothers me not one iota if i dont get the winner as long as i win .
A 66-I Place bet and two more selects placed to give a nice profit .
Do try to keep up buffoon

Watching the open from Sandwich brought oh so many good memories back for me ,for it was 1981 when i along with 3 workmates went down Bill Rogers' won it that year. He received £25,000 he scored 276 -4 ,Bernard Langer came second 280 ,Ray Floyd third on 283 ,My hero which has and will always be Jack Nicklaus with a score of 290 , my reason for telling you this because jack was one of the early players being so low down ,as he was approaching the tee off area just coming from practice putting area ,i had just bought one of his books and as he approached i popped out and stood in front of him and asked him could i have his autograph !!! TO MY ASTONISHMENT HE SAID""" WHY SURE YOUNG MAN""" TO HAVE MY LONG TIME HERO SIGN HIS NAME ME WILL LIVE WITH ME UNTIL MY DYING DAYS ..... HE WAS/IS THE TRUE AND HONEST PROFESSIONAL AND MANY YEARS LATER I STOPPED HIM AGAIN AT ROYAL LYTHAM ST ANNE'S AND I KNOW SCEPTICS WON'T BELIEVE THIS ,.....HE REMEMBERED ME !!!!! WHETHER IT'S BECAUSE I HAD SAME BOOK WITH ME ,BUT HONEST HE SAID""" DI I ENJOY SANDWICH ???? AKIN TO WILLIAM JOHN BOSTON A TRUE GENTLEMAN ,, HAPPY MEMORIES ALLL ......GB
