How to watch the 2022 Open Championship: British Open Australian TV Times

 

The 150th Open – Day One. ST ANDREWS, SCOTLAND – JULY 14: Paul Lawrie of Scotland tees off on the 1st hole during Day One of The 150th Open at St Andrews Old Course on July 14, 2022 in St Andrews, Scotland. (Photo by Oisin Keniry/R&A/R&A via Getty Images )

The 150th Open Championship will be played at The Old Course at St Andrews this week with great expectations the milestone event will provide a fitting classic edition worthy of the tournament’s long and storied history.

Eleven Australian golfers will have the honour of vying for the Claret Jug as the world’s top golfers strive to win what would be a highlight in any trophy cabinet.

Australia’s charge will be led by Cameron Smith, who will be buoyed by his top ten finish at the Scottish Open on the weekend. Also teeing it up will be Adam Scott, Marc Leishman, Lucas Herbert, Min Woo Lee, Brad Kennedy, Jason Scrivener, Dimitrios Papadatos, Matthew Griffin and debutantes Jed Morgan and Anthony Quayle.

In a tournament neck-deep in interesting storylines many eyes will be on three time champion Tiger Woods, who has seemingly spent many weeks preparing his fragile body to compete for what would be his third St Andrews victory.

Woods withdrew from the 2022 PGA Championship and sat out the 2022 U.S. Open in a bid to improve his open chances.

But realistically, Woods is a 40–1 outsider whose first task will be to make the weekend still in a reasonably healthy state.

Favourite with the bookies is Rory McIlroy 9-1, followed by Jon Rahm 11-1, Scottie Scheffler 12-1, Justin Thomas 14-1, Collin Morikawa 18-1, Matthew Fitzpatrick 20-1, Will Zalatoris 20-1, Xander Schauffele 22-1, Jordan Spieth 22-1, Shane Lowry 22-1, Cameron Smith 25-1 and Patrick Cantlay 25-1.
