THE 2022 Open Championship takes place this week from the Old Course and St Andrews, Scotland for its 150th edition.
And Paddy Power have boosted the the odds for Rory McIlroy, Matt Fitzpatrick and Shane Lowry all to finish inside the top 20 (including ties) up from 9/2 to 8/1 – which can easily be added to your bet slip HERE*.
The top three ranked players from the British Isles are all in contention for top spot at this week’s Open Championship, which starts on Thursday.
McIlroy goes into this weekend’s final major of the year as the pre-tournament favourite.
The 33-year-old from Northern Ireland is bidding to win his fifth major championship and his second Open Championship.
His last major win came eight years ago at the 2014 PGA Championship, and the current world number two will be desperate to put an end to his major drought.
Fitzpatrick became just the third Englishman to win a golfing major this century with his US Open win in Brookline, Massachusetts last month.
The 27-year-old from Sheffield is now under pressure to keep his rich vein of form going this year and keep climbing up the rankings list.
He currently sits at a career best 10th place but will need to improve his best ever Open finish of T20 from three years ago to up his ranking.
That Open Championship from 2019 was won by Lowry, who is also in mix with the bookies to have a good weekend this time around.
The Irishman finished third at the Masters this year and is looking to build on his strong year that has seen him climb up to 22nd in the rankings.
