Two-time major golf champion, Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland, is second favorite behind newly crowned Scottish Open Champion, Justin Rose, to win this week’s 2014 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool Golf Club.

Rose, heads up the open golf betting with odds ranging from about 12/1 – 15/1, and the former US Open Champion is followed by McIlroy in the latest betting odds.  McIlroy, is on offer at golf odds normally varying between 14/1 – 16/1 in most leading online bookmaker spotchecks.

On double checking these open golf betting odds again for McIlroy, I noticed that Sporting Bet, Coral & Stan James are currently offering the Irish golfer at 18/1. It will be interesting to see if the former USPGA and US Open Champion will move further in and out of the open golf betting prior to Thursday’s first round tee time.

If you do wish to place a golf bet on McIlroy for The Open 2014, we recommend you shop around before placing your open golf bet on the second favorite. These golf bettiing prices were spot checked at 1145 hours, GMT, Tuesday, 15 July, 2014, and may be subject to fluctuation.
