Golfing greats compete in the prestigious British Open championship while players stand to make a mint off great betting odds.
It's time to celebrate one of golf's greatest tournaments - the British Open. This year's glamorous event, the 138th of its kind, is scheduled to take place from tomorrow at Turnberry in Scotland. This will be the third time the Scottish grounds have catered to this event.
Big name players
Tiger Woods missed last year's Open Championship and PGA Championship, he will be roaring back to this year's British Open. Alongside him will be the likes of many golfing greats in Ernie Els, Stuart Appleby, Retief Goosen and Vijay Singh to name a few heavyweight contenders for this year's title.
William Hill Sports betting odds
This Thursday, one of the most anticipated sporting events is kicking off to a global audience. William Hill Sports has provided an easy-to-use sports betting platform for golf fundis. For example Tiger Woods is a hot favorite to win at 9/4; Sergio Garcia is a long shot at 20/1 and Lee Westwood even further adrift at 25/1.
Adventurous gamers can place their faith in Hole-in-Ones which have 'Zero' chance odds of 8/11, and 'Yes' chance odds of occurring of an 'Even' betting range. Gamers can test their golfing knowledge by placing wagers on:
- regional round leaders,
- top continental players,
- or the top rest of the world player.
But William Hill Sports offers more, like who's likely to be in the 'top 5 finish' or 'top 20 finish'. And what will the 'margin of victory be?' All the hot golfing action as soon as it unfolds is available through William Hill Sports.
