British Open 2019 odds: Assessing every player’s chance of contending at Royal Portrush

Golf Digest - 07-16


We love the Open Championship for so many reasons, but one of the sneaky qualities that makes golf's oldest major so unique is that the field tends to be one of the most interesting in golf. Unlike the Masters, with typically around 90 players, or the PGA Championship, which boasts the most players in the top 100, or the U.S. Open with its democratic field, the Open affords an opportunity for some less-heralded golfers to gain notoriety. That's how we became familiar with names like Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Jazz Janewattananond and others who play on less familiar international tours.
