The 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie

The 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie – 19th July – 22nd July.

Although the venue for The Open changes each year, making it tough to predict a winner, the one thing each tournament has in common is a links course. The course at Carnoustie has often produced a dramatic finish, most notably the Jean Van De Velde incident and the socks in 1999!

What we learnt from previous winners – Only two of the last 13 winners didn’t have a Links victory to their name before their win (Henrik Stenson and Zach Johnson)
– 12 of the past 13 winners had at least a top 6 at The Open before their victory
– 11 of the past 14 winners had a victory in the year they lifted the Claret Jug
– One top 8 in one of their 6 events leading up to The Open

Using this information we have selected the following players to look out for this week:-Rory Mcllroy
-Justin Rose -Brooks Koepka
-Jason Day
-Alex Noren
-Paul Casey :For those of you who prefer a bigger prices contender then the following could go well at long odds:
-Eddie Pepperell
-Cameron Smith
-Russell Knox
