British Open 2016Last weekend an important role for the majors was played in the PGA Tour. This is my analysis and predictions article for some upcoming  golf, as the numbers and predictions change from day to day let’s take a look at the first quote that surprise start with Dustin Johnson the big favorite after his victory, even ahead of Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth.

The wait for the next major of the Tour will be the British Open this 2016, The third Grand Slam  for this year, kicks off on Thursday, July 14 with the 145th edition, hosted by the Royal Troon Golf Club in Ayrshire, Scotland. In the meantime let’s take a first look at the odds for this important event that  right way surprises a little, the unexpected as the absolute favorite is Dustin Johnson on the board with a +600.

It must be said that at this moment Johnson looks in great shape and the numbers he had for the last event, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational 2016 was right on the money. After this victory Johnson jumped to number 2 in the World Golf Rankings, but almost everyone expected the big three in front of DJ for this 2016 British Open Championship .

Instead both Jason Day at +800, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth at +1000 are all behind DJ. In the top 10 and the favorites among the bookmakers are also other big names we know not to underestimate, Adam Scott and Branden Grace at +2000, Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson and Rickie Fowler at +2600 and Phil Mickelson trailing behind in +2800.

A high number for the winner of the Open Championship in 2015, or Zach Johnson , whom even last year had a close call in this event, where even this year opens away in the board in fact often not favorite at +5000, a share that could be of great value, even if Zach is certainly not playing his best golf right now. The numbers will continue to fluctuate but the momentum from each surge enables the predictions to be more specific as the Open is underway, Keep a close look at the big three as they will continue to reign this year.
