The Open: Updates Throughout Day 1

GOLF BET: Live on BBC: from 10.00: Rory McIlroy sets a course record -9 at Old Lady to claim the clubhouse lead on the 1st day of The Open, he is 10/3 with Coral to win. Compare all Open odds.

Rory McIlroy is into 10/3 with Coral to win The Open after he posted a new course record of 63. That has him 3 shots ahead of American John Daly, who himself is 40/1 at Paddy Power.

Tiger Woods is lurking ominously, tied for 2nd at -6 after the 16th. William Hill’s pre-tournament 7/1 is looking good as he is into 7/2 with Bet365.

Amateur Jin Jeong is also at -6 after 16, he is still 150/1 with 10bet.

Last year’s playoff contender Tom Watson is in the clubhouse at +1, 300/1 at Totesport.

Woods comes in at -5, 4 behind leader McIlroy, Woods can now be backed at 9/2 with Victor Chandler.

Rose, Woods’ partner, comes in at -2 after a late bogey on 17 and sits at 40/1 with Bet365, out from 20′s

Ross Fisher went round in 68 (-4), 66/1 with Ladbrokes.

Ernie Els is just in contention at -3, 33/1 at Skybet.

Big outsider Fred Andersson Hed , starting the competition at 500/1 with Ladbrokes, is now -6 after the 14th, 100/1 with Paddy Power.

Phil Mickleson and Colin Montgomerie par the first while Reteif Goosen birdies it, Goosen currently 50/1 at Sportingbet.

Louis Oosthuizen is on the charge, -6 after 11 holes. 40/1 at 888sport, anything up to 400/1 pre tournament.

Louis Oosthuizen is sticking well, moving to -8 from 16 holes. He moves to 20/1 Victor Chandler.

Westwood has started well, -4 after 8 and finds himself 11/1 at Skybet.

Oosthuizen cards a seven-under par 65 and is now available at a best price of 35/1 with bet365.

Elsewhere, Lee Westwood is -5 after 12 holes and Skybet have cut him to 8/1, Englishman Steven Tiley can still be backed at 250/1 (Paddy Power), despite going round in 66 while Phil Mickelson remains on par after the front nine and has subsequently drifted to 40/1 at Extrabet.


US Open champion Graeme McDowell is on the drift at 125/1 with bet365, struggling at +1 after 13 holes.

By contrast, Andrew Coltart is tied for third on -6 but can still be backed at 125/1 courtesy of Coral.

Wales’ Bradley Dredge shares that position having just carded a round of 66 to send his odds into 80/1 at William Hill but nobody will prevent Rory McIlroy from ending the day sitting proudly on top of the leaderboard and heading the betting at 10/3 with Stan James.
