British Open Championship takes place in July, but the online betting has already begun.
The British Open Championship, the oldest of golf's four major tournaments, takes place one month from now in the middle of July, but the sports betting action has already begun thanks to online sportsbook bet365.British Open Details
The 2012 Open Championship will be the 141st installment of this historic tournament. It will be held at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club in Lancashire, England on July 19-22. This will be the 11th time the British Open has been held at the venue. David Duval was the last player to win there in 2001.
With a par of 70, it will take a massive effort for any of the players to beat Tiger Woods' British Open Record of -19 under par. Greg Norman holds the overall shot record of 267, and it also appears unlikely that anybody will defeat this with a -13 under par effort. But there are plenty more exciting options to bet on.Bet365 Odds
