The 149th Open Championship will return to Royal St George’s for the first time since 2011. The Open Championship will be from July 16 to July 19 in 2020. The last person to win here was Darren Clarke, but the face of golf has changed tremendously to even remotely begin Open Championship betting.

Top Five Picks That Could Win
Brooks Koepka, the overall No. 1 golfer in the rankings, definitely always has a shot. Last year at this event, he tied for fourth place. Even though this time around it is being played at a different location, he seems to be able to play his through any course and could be a strong favorite on anyone’s radar.
Rory Mcllroy is the second-best golfer, according to the rankings. He did not play well at all at this event last year, but this time it will be in a different location. After having a successful 2019, his 2020 campaign is off to a good start with a win at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.
Shane Lowry was last year’s winner of this event. He surprised everyone since the heavy favorite was Mcllroy. He has not played consistently well enough in my book to really make a case for his chances, but anything is possible. The 19th-best golfer in the world could have something to say if he wants to defend his title.
Dustin Johnson is the third-best golfer in the world rankings. Having tied for second place in the Masters, you could almost put him at the top for any betting. Having several victories and seven top 10 finishes for 2019, he should be considered at least for contention for any tournament.
Jon Rahm is first on the European tour and fifth in the world rankings. He had a great 2019 record with 12 top-10 finishes. He also had one victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. I believe he is just as dangerous as anyone right now.
Who Wins At The Open Championship?
With the resumes that each golfer presents, it is hard for Open Championship betting to really narrow it down to one person. I think the field is wide open and is up for grabs.
Koepka seems to be obsessed with being No. 1, and he has been playing like it. Mcllroy is an excellent golfer as well, but everyone now and then has a bad day just like the rest of them. Lowry just does not really fit for me in this tournament. He played really well for a few rounds of golf last time to snag a win, but this is a new location now, and anything could happen.
However, the one person that I think has the best chance is Rahm. Rahm has a creative mind just as good, if not better, than anyone playing on the tour. He seems to really know himself when it comes to correcting and adjusting to any circumstances.
He had an excellent 2019, and previous years also back up his consistency. I believe he will be the next winner to take home the trophy at the Open Championship.
