The pressure will be on Rory McIlroy this weekend at the 2019 Open Championship.

Not only is the tournament taking place in McIlroy’s native Northern Ireland, but the 30-year-old will head home as the betting favorite for 2019’s final major.

McIlroy is 8-1 to win the Claret Jug and is currently the only golfer with single-digit odds. Brooks Koepka, who has made a name for himself as the game’s premier big-tournament player, is the second betting choice at 10-1 with Dustin Johnson right behind him at 12-1

Tiger Woods, who hasn’t played since finishing tied for 21st at the U.S. Open back in June, is tied with Jon Rahm at 16-1.
