  • Brooks Koepka is the betting favorite at the 2019 Open Championship at Royal Portrush.
  • Rory McIlroy (10-1), Tiger Woods (12-1), Dustin Johnson (12-1) and Justin Rose round out the top five on the board.
  • 2019 U.S. Open Champion Gary Woodland is listed at 50-1.

The U.S. Open is in the books which means there is only one more Major Championship left for the 2019 golf season.

Brooks Koepka, who has turned himself into golf’s preeminent big-game hunter, is the favorite to win the Open Championship at 6-1. The 2019 PGA Championship winner is the only golfer currently listed shorter than 10-1.

Rory McIlroy is the second choice at 10-1 with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson right behind him at 12-1. Justin Rose, who finished tied for third at Pebble Beach, is currently priced at 16-1.

Gary Woodland, who won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach as an 80-1 longshot, is listed at 50-1 for the year’s final major.

Last year’s Open Championship winner, Francesco Molinari, is sitting at 20-1 along with Rickie Fowler, Jon Rahm and the suddenly in-form Jordan Spieth.

The 148th Open Championship begins on July 18 and takes place at Royal Portrush Golf Club in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It will be the second time the British Open will be held at the course. The last time it was held at Royal Portrush was in 1951.
