2022 Open Championship Recap

At St. Andrews last year, it was a battle of the Camerons. Cameron Young shot a -19 to finish a stroke off Cameron Smith at -20.

Rory McIlroy followed the Cameron’s to finish third with a -18. Tommy Fleetwood and Viktor Hovland both shot -14 scores to tie for fourth. Sixth place was another tie between Dustin Johnson and Brian Harman at -13.

Jordan Spieth, Patrick Cantlay, and Bryson DeChambeau all tied for eighth after shooting a -12. There was a four way tie for eleventh at -11: Abraham Ancer, Dean Burmester, Tyrrell Hatton, and Sadom Kaewkanjana.

2023 Open Championship Top Pick

Tommy Fleetwood should know the course well. Tommy is English. So he understands the nuances of links play.

For sure, Fleetwood will have to be at the top of his game and, yes, he has missed the cut in two of his last five tournaments played, but the missed cuts happened at the Charles Schwab and the Travelers.

Fleetwood finished fifth at the U.S. Open after shooting a 73-69-70-63. He had a similar scorecard when finishing fourth at The Open Championship last year, shooting a 72-69-66-67.

Tommy should have hot sticks this week. Give the top choice a long look to lift the trophy.

2023 Open Championship Second Pick

Brooks Koepka has played in just three PGA Tournaments. Brooks teed off at the U.S. Open, the PGA Championship, and the Masters.

Koepka played in all three, finishing seventeenth at the U.S. Open, winning the PGA Championship, and finishing second at the Masters. For sure, Brooks should be one of the choices to win on Sunday.

Our second pick thrives in major tournaments. He’s won the PGA Championship three times and the U.S. Open twice. The best finish at The Open was in 2019 when Brooks clocked in fourth. So Koepka is motivated to add an Open trophy to this mantle.

2023 Open Championship Third Pick

Rory McIlroy comes off a fantastic Scottish Genesis Open victory. McIlroy shot a 64-67-66-68 on his way to a -15 and first place victory.

The third pick has finished in the top ten in six straight tournaments. Rory finished second at the U.S. Open and seventh at the PGA Championship. No doubt, McIlroy would be the top pick if the odds were higher. But at +525, we must relegate Rory to third choice.

2023 Open Championship Underdog Pick

The U.S. Open winner played okay at the Scottish Genesis. Clark shot a 68 first round and a 67 second round before two straight rounds of par 70.

The performance, a twenty-fifth, could set Wyndham up for another underdog victory in a major tournament. At the U.S. Open, Clark showed he can hang with McIlroy, Scheffler, Rahm and the rest of the top ranked golfers in the world.

Not only that, but the odds make Wyndham an overlay. Backing Clark at the odds makes sense.
