There was no British Open in 2020, marking the first year since 1945 that we didn’t have a “Champion Golfer of the Year” crowned.

Royal St. George’s turn as host will move to July 15-18, 2021, while St. Andrews will take the 2022 British Open.

It’s never too early for odds on who will lift the Claret Jug, and it’s no surprise who is the very early favorite.

Rory McIlroy is at +900, while Jon Rahm (+1200), 2020 U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau (+1400) and 2020 FedEx Cup champion Dustin Johnson (+1400) are not far behind.

Brooks Koepka will look for his fifth major and first British Open, and he opens tied with Justin Thomas at +1600. Tiger Woods is +2000 to claim his fourth Open Championship.
