Thomas Pieters 2019 British Open Odds

  • Odds to Win British Open: 200-1
  • DFS Pricing: $7,000 DraftKings; $8,700 FanDuel
  • Tee Times:  6:42 a.m. ET Thursday; 1:41 a.m. ET Friday

Pieters is yet another Euro golfer who actually sets up better for PGA courses than links-style venues. He has distance, but he’s typically erratic with his driver: He ranks 124th in this week’s field in Long-Term Driving Accuracy.

His recent form is also concerning: He finished 20th at the Scottish last week, but prior to that he missed his past three cuts.

Maybe last week was an indication of the success he can have:  He hit a ridiculous 81.9% of his greens. But that seems likely to regress. He’s not rating highly for me at all.
