We're off to Royal St George's for the final major of the year as our golf expert Cian Kirby takes a closer looks at this year's field. The Open Championship was the only major to be lost to the covid-19 pandemic last year so it's two years since Shane Lowry lifted the iconic Claret Jug.



Koepka's the Man for Majors

It's safe to say that Brooks Koepka's record in major championships continues to impress. The 31-year-old claimed his maiden major title at the 2017 US Open and has since won an additional three majors, whilst also finishing inside the top ten on another eleven occasions.

The Florida native arrives in brilliant form with three top-five finishes in his last four starts and also has some quality Open Championship results in his locker with three top tens from six visits to the British Isles. Koepka looks certain to be in the mix again and the current price of 14/1 with Paddy Power paying an industry-leading 12 each-way places, is too tempting to resist.

MacIntyre to Relish Links Asssignment Again

Robert MacIntyre announced his arrival to the golfing world with an unbelievable tied sixth-place finish at the 2019 Open Championship on his major debut and the 24-year-old's career has trended in the right direction ever since. His first professional victory at the Cyprus Showdown last year was backed up with a tied 12th on his Masters debut and he also racked up top tens in the Dubai Desert Classic, the WGC Match Play, and the British Masters.

MacIntyre's schedule suffered a minor hiccup when he recently had to withdraw from the Irish Open after being identified as a close contact of a positive covid-19 case but he bounced back in impressive fashion with a top 20 finish in last week's Scottish Open. Although he make lack experience, MacIntyre looks tailor-made for this week's windy links assignment and he makes plenty of appeal with William Hill at 66/1, who are paying 9 places each way.

Scott Flying Under the Radar

Adam Scott has definitely slipped under the radar for this year's event based on his attractive odds of 66/1. The Aussie has five top-ten finishes to his name at Open Championships and also arrives in decent form with good performances at the Memorial, US Open, and most recently the Travellers Championship.

The now 40-year-old has some course form to boast after a good showing here in 2011, so the former Masters champion should enjoy the return to Royal St George's. The current 66/1 price with 888Sport, who are paying 9 each-way places, looks like a standout bet as Scott aims to secure his second major title.
