The Outlook

Scott has a solid track record at the Open. He’s been in the top-five three times in the last six years and appeared to have the 2012 title locked up before an epic meltdown gave Ernie Els the win. I’ve already been in and out on Scott for this tournament. He opened at 150-1 on Sportsbook, then crashed to 30-1 and I took the cash-out. As for his current number, 50-66-1 is a little too low for me. He isn’t in the same type of form as someone like Tony Finau or Bryson DeChambeau in that same range. We’d be counting on experience to be of value. Old guys pop up at the Open all the time, but I’ve got my eyes more on someone like Ian Poulter if we’re going down the veteran route.
