The Open Championship is the oldest and most revered golf tournament in the world. Lifting the Claret Jug is every professional golfer's dream and the 2015 Open Championship takes place at St Andrews on 16th - 19th April 2016 with a stellar field including Jordan Spieth, Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose and Tiger Woods to name but a few. Shame about Rory McIlroy, but he will be back!
Each year The Open is always one of the biggest summer betting events in the UK and 2015 will be no different with online bookmakers falling over themselves to grab your business via a range of free bets, best odds and tempting extended each way terms. Indeed simply using the right bookmaker to place your bets can prove to be a very profitable exercise as a select band will be paying out 6 Places Each Way, 7 Places Each Way or even 8 Places Each Way at this year's Open Championship, rather than the standard 5 Places. As the bookmakers extend their Each Way terms we'll compile details below of any Open Championship 7 places each way offers or better:
Open Championship 8 Places
Let us walk you through why it's vital to get the ultimate combination of market leading odds and extended Each Way terms at the 2015 Open Championship, plus we make it easy for you by highlighting the key bookmakers that will maximise your potential returns:
Who will lift this year's Claret Jug in 2015 with defending champion Rory McIlroy out of action?
Maximising the number of places paid by bookmakers for each way bets is absolutely essential when backing your selection(s) at The Open. After all, anything can happen! Players priced as high as 1,000/1 have delivered Top 7 finishes in the past 5 years at the British Open and it makes total sense to maximise the amount of EW places that a bookmaker will honour, especially for longer priced players.
The Open has 156 players with the standard each way terms on golf being 1/4 odds on the first 5 finishers. Traditional High Street players sometimes quite legitimately stick to these terms therefore minimising their exposure, however this also gives them the opportunity to be aggressive with their prices. So placing your bets with a bookmaker that offers 6 Places Each Way or even 7 Places Each Way increases your chances considerably and, year after year, produces great results.
As we get closer to the event we'll list any Open Championship 7 places terms on this page for 2015 at St Andrews as and when they're confirmed.
