The 150th Open Championship was billed as one of the biggest majors of the 21st century and through two days, it has delivered.
There were worries before the tournament started that without weather, the course would be defenseless. However, the Old Course at St. Andrews has certainly shown its teeth as big names such as Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka, Louis Oosthuizen and Phil Mickelson failed to make the cut.
But more importantly, it’s delivered a star-studded leaderboard.
Cameron Smith leads the way at 13-under. The Aussie has fired off rounds of 67 and 64 in back-to-back days. Smith has been knocking on the door at majors, but has yet to get his first victory. He is +165 to win the tournament on DraftKings.
Trailing him is another Cameron, Cameron Young. The PGA Tour rookie arrived on the scene during the PGA Championship, where he was in contention before falling apart on the weekend. He is +750 to get the job done this weekend.
Rory McIlroy, the favorite heading into the week, is right in the mix and is the second-highest favorite to lift the Claret Jug. He is currently +650 after the first two days after starting the week at +900.
There are plenty of stars who will be chasing those three guys on the weekend. The No. 1 ranked player in the world, Scottie Scheffler, is sitting at nine-under and +1000 to win on DraftKings.
Viktor Hovland is another up-and-coming star expected to get his first major soon. He’s sitting at 10-under and +850 to win.
Dustin Johnson (+900), Tyrell Hatton (+2200) and Patrick Cantlay (+2800) are also sitting just a few back and in position to chase down the leaders.
Let’s see if the home of golf can deliver a magical finish once again.
