Jon Ram finally performed well in an important game, Win the 2021 U.S. Open. One month later, can he win his second championship at the 2021 British Open?
After the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the 2020 event, the British Open is about to return. This will give Ireland’s Sean Lowry a chance to defend his first Grand Slam title.
For bettors, the British Open is often unpredictable and frustrating. The course is a pile of courses as usual, 19 of the top 20 golfers in the world will participate in the competition. Usually there is wind and rain that make players feel confused and may lose their rhythm.
Nevertheless, there are still some attractive odds available for bettors to take advantage of.
The 7,204-yard Royal St. George Stadium will not automatically favor big swingers like Kiawah Island and Torrey Pines in the most recent major game. This brings new energy to some of the more accurate and cautious drivers on the tour, especially those who perform well in the wind.
Below is all the information you need to know about betting at the 2021 British Open, including the latest tournament odds and the best bets for the event.
2021 British Open odds

Jordan Spieth (+1400), Rory McIlroy (+1400), Dustin Johnson (+1800), Xander Schauffele (+1800), Brooks Koepka (+1800) with Justin Thomas (+2000) He is the only golfer in the tournament with odds of 20-1 or higher.
Bryson DeChambeau (+3000) Given his nine-hole collapse after the 2021 US Open and his recent change of caddies, his ranking on the roster is much lower than usual. Brian Ziegler will serve DeChambeau as a caddie for the first time at the British Open.

British Open Expert Picks
The 2021 British Open will be held at the Royal St. George Golf Course, which is a relatively short course compared to the monster course that golfers have been playing recently. It is 7,204 yards in length and is a par 70 course, so it is not necessary to tee off from the tee. The more important thing is to land the ball on the fairway.
Therefore, the most important data to watch this week are the number of shots (SG:APR) obtained when approaching the green and the accuracy of the server. Open tournaments always have some wind factors, so choosing a player who can pass the ball consistently and accurately will prove to be the most important. Bettors will want golfers who believe they can also make sand saves, because the British Open courses always have tricky bunkers.
Considering these three categories, Colin Senchuan (+2500) This week is a good choice. He is the best in the SG:APR Tour, adding 1.502 strokes per round. The next golfer Paul Casey was almost half a shot behind him. Coupled with Morikawa’s 11th-ranked driver accuracy rate, he should have a chance to avoid the trouble of the wind. In terms of serving distance, he may be just average-114 of 208 yards, 294.9 yards per kick-but it doesn’t matter on the shorter Royal St. George’s Stadium.
Joan Ram (+700) Even with the lowest odds on the court, it is another reliable bet.He played well in the wind. In the past 24 rounds, he has scored 60.1 strokes in windy conditions. Mobile networkCoupled with his seventh-ranked game in the SG:APR game, it will make him the best chance of winning in this game. His serve accuracy (65th) and sand save rate (52.22%) are slightly above average, but his tee-to-green game and recent performance make him an attractive bet.
In long shots, Russell Henry (+10000) It seems to be a good value choice. He ranks in the top 10 in SG:APR with 0.901 shots and also ranks in the top 10 in sand save rate. His driver accuracy rate ranks 37th in the field, so he checked all the boxes. He has finished in the top 20 in every of the past three games, including 13th at the US Open, so at 100-1 odds, he is worth a try.
One of Henry’s concerns is that his 289.6 yards serve distance, ranking 163rd on the PGA Tour. This may make longer holes more challenging for him, but he should make up for it with his accuracy and stability. In addition, the Royal St. George’s Stadium has only two holes over 500 yards.
Annual British Open champion
There is no British Open champion in 2020, so the defending champion is Sean Lowry. The Irish beat Tommy Fleetwood with a convincing six-shot lead, including a 7-under 63 on the moving day, a new record for the Royal Portrush Stadium.
Lowry will seek to become the first back-to-back British Open champion since Padreig Harrington won at Carnoustie and Royal Berkdale in 2007 and 2008. Before him, Tiger Woods won consecutive championships at St Andrews (2005) and Royal Liverpool (2006).
The Open Championship will have 11 previous champions participating. These include Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Louis Osterhewson.
