    2017 Open Championship

    So with the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale just around the corner, who do you fancy to lift the Claret Jug and who do you see as nice e/w bets? Worthy of note that Sky Bet have just gone 10 places each way at 1/5 odds for next week.

    10 places, awesome.
    Fed up of backing the favourites and winning sod all back, time for a change of tactic.
    I fancy Rahm, Fowler, Noren and a few other outsiders I haven't selected yet, maybe Harman, Haas types etc, not bothering with Johnson, Speith, or Mcllroy this year.

    I've backed all three of them at majors this year and they let me down!

    I'm not going to bother. I'd been betting on Brooks Koepka the last 6 majors and forgot for the US Open

    I don't bet but if I did I would nearly always go for Casey, Fowler, Westwood & Stenson as possible placings.
    I would now add Fleetwood, Tanihara and Rahm to the above along with Peter Uihlein & Bernd Weisberger

    Justin Rose to add the claret jug to his collection at the same place he won the silver medal almost 20 years ago. He played some good golf at Portstewart, finishing 4th and it looks like he has went straight to Birkdale to get some practice in. 22/1 on Betfred.

    I don't like Rose, but I would and will be putting some money on him for this.
    In My Bag
    Driver - Adams Superspeed 10.5 deg
    Hybrid - Adam Superspeed
    Irons - Cleveland CG16
    Putter - Yes Sandy or some other one that wrecks my score.
    Balls - Nike PD Soft. Until I've lost them all.

    Out of interest, why don't you like Rose?
