Open Golf Pointers 2014

The most obvious tip for punters at the British Open is to look at those players who are in the best form heading into a tournament such as this one, momentum should never be underestimated in a Major tournament and Lytham will be no different. Punters are advised to check out the British Open Golf Form Guide to see which players are content with their game at the moment, this year there are a number of players who come into the British open on the back of some good victories in recent months.

After looking at the form players it is always worth having a look at course form which can often prove crucial in a tight situation, any player that has won or played well at the course before will go into the British Open in a positive state of mind.

The Scottish Open always precedes the British Open and the winner of that is worth taking note of, this year there was an excellent win from Luke Donald from England who now arrives in Kent full of beans. It will be a tough task for him to win two weeks in-a-row but he is playing well and should attract plenty of good each/way money from punters this year.

Links golf is a type of golf which many of the players in the field play very little of so punters should be looking through the field at those players who have a game proven to be effective in the wind. Phil Mickelson is one player that has struggled at the British Open and he has taken many years to get used to style needed to be successful, which is why he is often a longer price for the Open as opposed to any of the other Majors.
