Tyrrell Hatton

Tyrrell Hatton, after a fairly difficult time on the links, has gotten better and better on these sorts of tracks.

Looking back at his track record at The Open, the Englishman missed the cut in each of his first four attempts.

It has been a missed cut from him in five of his previous eight Open appearances.

But in two of his last four, he has banked top ten finishes. There’s been progress there.

In 2019 he was tied for sixth at Royal Portrush. Last month he went well at Congaree on a links-style track and that just puts him on the radar for this week.

Ten of the last 17 attempts on links-style courses have yielded a top twenty finish for Tyrell Hatton. That’s not bad consistency at all.

Tyrrell Hatton is a 5/1 punt to finish the weekend as the Top Englishman in The Open golf betting* (odds recorded at 21:19 GMT on July 14th, 2021 at Boylesports).

Matthew Fitzpatrick

Fitzpatrick carries over the positive from last week’s Scottish Open. He reached a playoff there and while he didn’t triumph, that run bucked the trend of poor results in links tournaments.

That was only the third time in his career that Fitzpatrick had reached the top ten of a links tournament, from 23 attempts. So this really isn’t his kind of track.

Fitzpatrick is a good solid player but just doesn’t have the track record in the Majors to really suspect that he will go strongly.

There has not been a top ten from him in any of his last 21 appearances in golf’s majors.

He may be right up there at 5/1 as Top Englishman for the golf betting this week, but we think he’s worth opposition* (odds recorded at 21:19 GMT on July 14th, 2021 at Boylesports).

Paul Casey

Casey does have some appeal in this market at 6/1* (odds recorded at 21:19 GMT on July 14th, 2021 at Boylesports).

He will be heading to the Olympics later this month for Team GB and 2021 has been good to him. Casey has broken the top fifteen in three previous attempts at The Open.

Casey was well in touch at the 2020 PGA Championship and went close again at the PGA Championship this year with a top-five finish there.

Then he was a Top Ten finisher at the US Open.

He is just in fine nick at the moment and has tallied up eight of those top ten finishes across the course of this campaign.

Tommy Fleetwood

Fleetwood is one of the genuinely better links players around, certainly from the home crop of players. The windier it is, the more he seems to thrive as well.

He carries some Open form as well having taken 12th in 2018 and then the runner up spot in 2019 at Royal Portrush.

Fleetwood looks a good fit for this week’s action. He is a quote of 11/2 to be the top Englishman for The Open golf betting this week* (odds recorded at 21:19 GMT on July 14th, 2021 at Boylesports).

He’ll probably hold his own without question. This could be a great opportunity for him to bury the huge disappointment of that narrow miss two years ago.

Lee Westwood

Lee Westwood had an Open resurgence in the last edition. He managed to get into the top five at Royal Portrush.

That was the fourth such finish at the tournament in his last eleven attempts at the major. However, where the challenge falls about is his track record in England.

Ten times Westwood has appeared in The Open on home turf and he hasn’t made it into the top 25 on any of those occasions. It’s a strange record.

Westwood appears as a 13/2 option on The Open golf betting this week to be the Top Englishman* (odds recorded at 21:19 GMT on July 14th, 2021 at Boylesports).
