Open Championship 2022 odds, picks: Tiger Woods predictions from an advanced golf model that passed eight majors

ADVERTISEMENT

Tiger Woods not only plays through the pain of his surgically repaired legs every time he competes in a tournament, but he also struggles with the inactivity that followed his car accident in February 2021. Woods hasn’t played only two official events in the last 20 months and has exceeded par in his last six rounds. Even with that, the 15-time major champion believes he can win every tournament he enters, which will make The Open Championship 2022 a must-watch event. Woods will have at least some knowledge of the course on his side as two of his three previous British Open victories have come on the same course which will host the 2022 Open Championship from Thursday.

The 2022 British Open will start on the Old Course in St Andrews. With no top-20 rankings in the past two calendar years, Woods is a long shot 60-1 in Open Championship 2022 odds at Caesars Sportsbook, while top Open Championship contenders 2022 include Rory McIlroy (9-1), Jon Rahm (14-1), Scottie Scheffler (16-1) and Justin Thomas (18-1). Before you lock in your picks for The Open Championship 2022, be sure to check out the golf predictions and projected standings from SportsLine’s proven computer model.

SportsLine’s exclusive model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been abuzz since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, it’s risen nearly $9,600 on its best bets since then, nailing tournament after tournament. .

At the 2022 Masters, McClure’s pattern was all over Scottie Scheffler’s first career major championship win heading into the weekend. The model also nailed Tiger Woods’ exact finishing position at Augusta National before the tournament started (47th). Additionally, McClure’s best bets included winning Collin Morikawa at the 2021 Open Championship, even though he was on the 40-1 long shot list.

This same model also managed eight major tournaments entering the weekend. Everyone who followed him saw massive returns.

Now that the Open Championship 2022 field is taking shape, SportsLine has simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results have been startling. Head over to SportsLine now to see the projected standings for the 2022 Open Championship.

Best Open Championship 2022 Predictions

A huge shock the model calls for Open Championship 2022: Scottie Scheffler, the No. 1 ranked player in the world and one of the top favorites, stumbles at St. Andrews and barely cracks the top five. Scheffler has finished in the top five in each of the other three majors during his career, but eighth place is his best result at the British Open. Although he’s been to every other major at least three times, he doesn’t have a lot of ties experience since that eighth-place finish came in his only previous Open Championship start.

Scheffler’s driving accuracy percentage (59.85%) does not rank in the top 100 on the tour, a red flag on a course with more than 100 bunkers, many lining the fairways. Scheffler also ranks outside the top 70 in various putt stats, including overall putt average (1.592), one-putt percentage (40.85%), and three-putt avoidance (2.45%). ). Given glaring weaknesses in his game but extremely short odds, Scheffler’s pattern fades at The Open Championship 2022.

The model also revealed where Tiger Woods will finish in the 2022 Open Championship. Woods has not played in an official event since retiring from the PGA Championship after 54 holes in May. He finished with a nine of 79 in the third round, his worst round at a PGA Championship.

Woods has only played in two official tournaments since being injured in a car accident last February, finishing in the top 50 at the Masters in April. He told reporters that he planned to play at the US Open, but ultimately skipped the tournament to prepare his body for the Open Championship. Three of his 15 major championships have come at this event, including victories at St. Andrews in 2000 and 2005. The model just locked in his Tiger Woods British Open picks here.
