Scottie Scheffler is well-ahead of the field in the World Golf Rankings, but still working on becoming a household name in a year where the LIV Golf Tour has hogged headlines. The good news is Scheffler is a top-three favorite to win this summer’s British Open and LIV Tour golfers are allowed to participate, too. So, who do the British Open golf odds think will take the 2022 title for the 150th edition at the Old Course at St. Andrews??

Most Recent Champion Golfers

Collin Morikawa


Collin Morikawa was valued at +2500 heading into the 149th edition of the Open Championship and at fourth in the world golf rankings, he was established as one of the very best players in the world. He got off to a good start with a 67, and shot into contention with a 64 on Friday. Morikawa was paired with leader Louis Oosthuizen, trailing the 2020 Champion Golfer of the Year by two strokes, and Morikawa made a shot up on Oosthuizen with a 68 in the third round. Morikawa was unstoppable in the final round, shooting a bogey-free 66 and making a number of huge putts to win his second major. Morikawa won the first major championship to return without fans at the PGA Championship in August 2020. It’s fitting that he would win the Open Championship when it returned with fans.

Shane Lowry


Ireland’s Shane Lowry was a +6000 longshot heading into the 2019 Open Championship at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland, but got off to a great start with a pair of 67s. However, Lowry took control of the tournament with a 63 in the third round, which was a course record and he went into the final day with a four-stroke lead. He managed to hang on in a typically rainy and windy final round, shooting a 72 to finish at -15. Lowry would win his first major championship by six strokes over England’s Tommy Fleetwood.

Francesco Molinari


Molinari, who hails from Italy, was also a +6000 longshot like Lowry ahead of the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie in Scotland. Shooting 70-72 in the first two rounds wasn’t great, but it kept Molinari in it until the third round, where he shot a 65 to move up the leaderboard. Molinari was paired with Tiger Woods in the final round, and he didn’t blink as Molinari shot a bogey-free 69 to win his first major championship by two shots over Kevin Kisner, Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Xander Schauffele.

Jordan Spieth


Jordan Spieth burst onto the scene in 2015 with his first Masters win in 2015, and proceeded to surge up the world rankings, reaching #1 and he also won a FedEx Cup along the way, along with a US Open win. In 2017, Spieth went to the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale in England, and shot a -5 in the first round. Spieth held the lead after 36 holes, and again after 54 holes, where he led Matt Kuchar by three strokes. The two Americans battled each other as Spieth struggled early, but he recovered for some back-nine fireworks. Spieth managed a miraculous up-and-down for bogey on #13 from the practice area, and then hit a 50-foot bomb of a putt for eagle at the 15th to take control. He would go on to win his third major championship by three strokes over Kuchar.

Henrik Stenson


Henrik Stenson was playing good golf ahead of the 2016 British Open at Royal Troon in Scotland, and shot a solid 65 in the first round. However, the Swede put the pedal to the medal in the second round with a 65, and then followed that with a 68 in the third round. Stenson was paired with Phil Mickelson in the final round and the two put on a show. Mickelson shot a blistering 65, but Stenson bettered him with a 63 to finish -20, three shots clear of Mickelson for his first major championship. The -20 under was a new British Open record, edging Tiger Woods’ -19 in 2000.

Zach Johnson


Zach Johnson was a huge underdog of +8000 going into the 2015 Open Championship at St. Andrews, but an opening-round 66 put him up there with the leaders. The second round had weather issues, so it started Friday and finished on Saturday, but Johnson held steady with a 71. He shot a 70 to remain three shots back of leaders Australian Jason Day, amateur Irishman Paul Dunne and South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen. Johnson made his move in the final round, shooting a 66 to pull even with Oosthuizen and Australia’s Marc Leishman, and the three went into a four-hole playoff. Johnson cleared the four holes in 15 strokes, one better than Oosthuizen and three better than Leishman for his second major championship following the 2007 Masters.

St. Andrews Old Course

The British Open celebrates 150 years this July when the field tries to match what golfer Willie Park first accomplished back in 1860. It seems fitting that the major’s 150th birthday celebration would take place back at St. Andrews and on the old course, which first hosted the tournament in 1873.
