Jordan Spieth Victory at The Open Championship Bad for Books

Bookmakers throughout North America in particular were hoping for a winner of this year’s Open Championship not named Jordan Spieth.  He led throughout the tournament to take the victory Sunday.

Spieth entered this year’s Open Championship as a relatively long 13-1 co-favorite with Dustin Johnson, the later of whom does not appear to be in contention any longer.

Spieth was among the most wagered on participants coming into Thursday.  His odds dipped to around 2/1 by Friday morning.  Typical Majors tournaments feature high paying winners minus the wagering volume.

The American golfer becomes only the second golfer to win three Majors before the age of 24.

"Tiger Woods did not manage it, but Jack Nicklaus did," James Corrigan of the Daily Telegraph noted. "That is the calibre of legend against which Spieth is vying. And on a day when this rain-soaked, gust-free links has never seemed so compliant, the young Texan managed to accomplish that most difficult of tasks for a front-runner and increase the advantage while everyone else is furiously sprinting in behind."
