Don't miss out, amazing value, amazing prices

Course: Turnberry. Playing at 7,207 yards par 70 may seem like a long course but being a links course it won't play as long and the shorter hitters are not at as big a disadvantage as they usually are in majors. No, the key to the Turnberry course is good decision making and accurate shot making. The rough will be up as usual in majors and no different for the British Open and as per, the winds will be blowing. Top scramblers make the best picks.

-1pt E/W Lee Westwood @ 30/1places 1-8 (Boylesports, Westwood on fire last week on the European golf tour and would have won if not for a bout of illness. Rory Mcilroy says he's striking it terrific and even advises a bet!

-1pt E/W Geoff Ogilvy @ 45/1 places 1-8(Boylesports, Top Scrambler likes links courses and has the head to win a British Open title.

-1pt E/W Adam Scott @ 50/1 places 1-8 (Boylesports, Getting back to some form after some off course problems and at 50's, The British is a good bet for his style of play off the back of a great Loch Lomond Scottish open

-1pt E/W Mike Weir @ 100/1 places 1-8(boylesports) Massive value for a guy usually up there in majors. The reason he is is he's one of the best scramblers around and the wind won'y bother him too much at turnberry. Watch out for Weir - a top 8 placing being 20/1, great bet.

Golf Player Profiles

Please note that player attribute ratings are derived from the official PGA Tour and European Tour golf stats, and updated with a rolling average each golf betting year for precision.

Bryan Nicholson is the pioneer of the progressive form and course fit ratings for golf betting, with the associated progressive form model and course fit profiling model. Bryan is the author of the increasingly popular annual course fit profiling manual and #1 golf betting book Angles & Edges and runs the Sharp Sports Bettors Blog.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan also pioneered the concept of Expected Strokes Gained Course Fit (xSGF) in golf betting. xSGF can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating. For example: Sam Horsfield at Celtic Manor vs TPC Southwind. This number will also portray ability level in terms of strokes gained total. Click "find out more" under the course fit golf betting model for info.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds. For example - a player shows form of T40 - 24 - 24, but last week he was in the leading PGA Tour group on Sunday with Tiger Woods and had a bad round due to nerves. His finishing position may not fully capture his actual form... See more with our calculators and betting tools
