Lowry, Lee And Monty Amongst Worst open Results For Bookies

The British and Irish golfers are proving very popular in the betting ahead this year’s Open with Shane Lowry (45/1), Lee Westwood (40/1), Colin Mongomerie (150/1) and Graeme McDowell (80/1) four of the five worst results in the book for the bookies. The worst result in William Hill’s book is Shane Lowry.

“As always, the British and Irish golfers have been very well backed for the Open,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Lowry came so close in the US Open, Westwood is always very well backed to finally break his duck while honorary member, Monty, has attracted more than a few romantic bets.”

Dustin Johnson and Jason Day share favouritism for the competition at 10/1 with Rory McIlroy 11/1 and Jordan Spieth 12/1.
