2011 British Open Odds: McIlroy Favored

On Monday, the New York Times ran an article proclaiming “At the British Open, Everyone’s a Favorite.” That’s factually inaccurate as only US Open champ Rory McIlroy is the betting favorite at golf’s third major, which starts Thursday. McIlroy is at +650, followed by World No. 1 Luke Donald and No. 2 Lee Westwood, who are both at +1100.

Still, it is a wide open field and relative unknowns have dominated the British Open for most of the past decade. “There’s probably 130 guys that could win this week, have a legitimate chance,” said Ben Curtis, who won the 2003 British Open and became the first golfer in 90 years to win in his major debut. “You’re going to take here and there 20 that may not be feeling well or their game is really bad or whatever coming in, but pretty much anyone in the field can win this week. It’s just a matter of having the right things go your way and making a few putts here and there.”

Here are your 2011 British Open odds for all the top contenders:

  • Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland (4) 13/2
  • Luke Donald, England (1) 11/1
  • Lee Westwood, England (2) 11/1
