With Tiger a best-priced 2/1 with William Hill for next week’s Open Championship, FHM’s tipster picks out some longer odds players to follow (probably as each-way wagers):
The pick of the younger Americans, Anthony Kim finished tied 7th on his Open debut last year and has a game suited to links golf. He’s best priced at 35/1 with BlueSq.
Jim Furyk has a solid, if not spectacular, Open record. Having been there at Majors before, he’ll handle any pressure and the wily World No 9 is available at 40/1 with SkyBet.
Previous Open Champion Ben Curtis has a knack of playing his best golf at Majors and is ominously coming into a bit of form. Back him at 66/1 with William Hill.
He may not be the player of years gone by but Vijay Singh is one of only a few people in the field who’s played an Open at Turnberry before. As Colin Montgomerie and Greg Norman have shown in recent years this can count for a lot and so we like the 66/1 odds available at ExtraBet.
