Jon Rahm leads 2021 British Open odds headed into Royal St. George’s

Jon Rahm is the favorite to win his second consecutive major heading into the Open Championship.

PGA: U.S. Open - Final Round Michael Madrid-USA TODAY Sports

The final major of the season is set to get started later this week with the British Open from Royal St. George’s Golf Course. The first tee shot is scheduled for early in the morning here in the United States on Thursday, July 15th, and the opening betting odds are out on DraftKings Sportsbook.

The last PGA Tour event Jon Rahm participated in was the U.S. Open in June when he won his first career major. Ranked as the second best golfer in the world by the Official World Golf Rankings, he is the betting favorite at +650 odds to win the British Open.

Dustin Johnson is currently ranked No. 1, and he is tied with Rory McIlroy for the second best odds at +1100 according to the oddsmakers. Brooks Koepka has +1400 odds to win it, and Xander Schauffele rounds out the top five at +1600.

The British Open did not happen in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so Shane Lowry is the defending champ after winning it in 2019. He is tied for the 14th best odds at +4000 heading into the tournament.
