The Open 2017 betting odds to win had Dustin Johnson as a favorite just shy of 7-1 and Rory McIlroy at 7.5/1.  Betting was available until prior to the start of Thursday’s play with LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING available during play and odds to win updated in between rounds.

Just how good is Johnson?

“I think he is the best athlete ever to play professional golf,” Keith Sbarbaro, club brand TaylorMade’s vice president of PGA Tour operations, says of Johnson. “He has a freakish natural talent. He can do anything. Give him a basketball, he can dunk it in bare feet. Give him a baseball, he can throw it 90mph…”

And with a potential payout of $70 on every $10 bet to boot.

McIlroy, meanwhile, missed out on the Irish Open but looks forward to this week’s play.

"I'm really disappointed," McIlroy said, who has only played three times since The Players Championship in May. "The last two times The Irish Open has been in Northern Ireland, not playing at the weekend, it's obviously not where I want to be.

"It's been a really frustrating year. Just hasn't really went the way I wanted it to. And yeah, it's been tough but I felt like I was playing well coming in here. I played a lot of links golf last week. I was shooting good scores. I was confident. Just when I needed to play well and shoot the scores that I was shooting last week, it just wasn't quite there."

Jordan Spieth had the third shortest odds with a payout potential of $90 for every $10 bet.

Major golf tournament payouts could prove especially lucrative. Brooks Koepka won this year’s US Open with opening odds set at 40/1.
