The popular Dublin based bookmaker are expecting a bumper few days of top golfing action as the firm braces’s itself for record levels of turnover on one of the UK’s most loved Championships.

One of the biggest sporting events of the year – The British Open – gets underway from Muirfield on Thursday and we are all set for an enthralling four days of golf in this famous tournament.

can always get a bit of a surprise at the Open Championship as well and you only have to look at the last two winners of the tournament to see that as veterans Ernie Els and Darren Clarke have been the last two men to come out on top.

However, this year, the bookies think it might be time for Tiger Woods to win another Major and his fourth in this competition as he is being offered at 10/1 to lift the trophy.

Woods has had a decent year so far and is clearly the best in the world when at the top of his game, but he will be disappointed with his performances in Majors recently as you have to go back to 2008 to find the last time he won one of golf’s biggest prizes.

If at his best here in Muirfield though, it is going to be tough for anyone to get near the American.

British sport is of course having a superb summer so far and you say the best chance of a home-grown winner here comes in the shape of US Open Champion Justin Rose.

Rose finally ended his wait for a Major title in Merion earlier in the year and he will fancy his chances of winning the British Open this time out.

It isn’t a tournament he has enjoyed too much as a player though as his best performance came back in 1998, where tied for fourth position. In two of the last three years, Rose has failed to make the cut, so he needs to raise his game here. He can be backed at 20/1.

Phil Mickelson comes to Muirfield full of confidence after a win in the Scottish Open last weekend. It was a performance that showed just how good he still is and after just missing out on the US Open title, he will be looking to bounce back here.

You can get odds of 22/1 on Mickelson winning this one.

Adam Scott is another Major winner this year as he took the Masters, so he could prove to be a popular bet at 22/1.

Graeme McDowell is also involved in the betting at 28/1 and we have seen in the past that when on top of his game, he is superb in these big tournaments and never a man to be written off.

Then you have Rory McIlroy at 28/1 and you wouldn’t have thought his odds would be that long at the start of the year. The Northern Irishman just isn’t playing well in 2013 and he has to have a big turnaround to win this one, but his quality is still there and you never know when he might put in a stunning performance.

There are of course too many players to mention, but people might see value in Luke Donald (33/1), Sergio Garcia (33/1) and Ian Poulter (55/1).

Don’t miss a moment of the action from Thursday.
