Spieth feeling rested as Open looms

20 Julio 2017, 02:40 | Cornelio Vivanco

Shane Lowry (75-1): Another Irishman who has shown some style in Major Championships, Lowry finished 9th in 2014 at Hoylake and took 2nd in the U.S. Open previous year at Oakmont.

"But it's like any Open Championship, you've just got to control your golf ball". Thankfully I did at Hoylake in 2014.

Rose didn't win at Augusta this year, but he did turn in a classic Masters moment.

But instead the onus is on craft and avoiding the many pitfalls, notably the 499-yard par-four sixth, a left-to-right dog-leg that was the hardest hole on the course the last time the Open came here in 2008.

"I'm not saying it's easy based on competition or anything like that, I'm strictly saying that because a lot of the time some of the field is thrown out and you're actually playing against a smaller field your percentage chances go up". Other than a 4th place at St. Andrews in 2015, Spieth has never finished better than 30th at an Open Championship.

Now McIlroy comes to The Open out of form, having missed the cut at his last two events in Ireland and Scotland, and realistic about his chances for the week ahead. However, this tournament will have special meaning to Rose. On the 18th hole, in the final round, the then 17-year-old amateur, playing in his first major championship, chipped his wedge shot, from thick rough, into the hole for a birdie, producing what was described as one of the loudest roars ever heard on a course.

Royal Birkdale is where it all began for Justin Rose. I think, myself included, all the young guys are so good.

Sergio Garcia proved that he can win a major this year. That includes three runner-up finishes.

Jon Rahm is hoping to cash in. Here are the golfers we think should contend for the win. He's missed his last two cuts (the Memorial and U.S. Open) and hasn't played since Erin Hills.

The two favourites now are Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler who can both be backed at 16/1 on Sun Bets.

But they will come tumbling down if the 28-year-old gets off to a good start on the
Lancashire coast and he remains confident his game is very close to clicking despite last week's latest early exit in the Scottish Open at Dundonald Links.

Tiger out of the top 1,000: Tiger Woods is out of golf for the rest of the season as he recovers from a fourth back surgery, and that means he finally is out of the top 1,000 players listed in the Official World Golf Ranking. Though he ultimately fell short in finishing tied for second, Harman should have a good shot at a major again at the 2017 British Open.
