GolfWRX is onsite this week at the 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale for the 146th playing of golf's oldest championship.<br />
<br />
Dustin Johnson (10/1) enters as the betting favorite this week, followed by John Rahm (12/1), who won the Irish Open just more than a week ago. The 22-year-old Spaniard will be a popular pick to win this week; he's arguably the hottest and most consistent golfer in the world at the moment. The coldest among big name players might be Rory McIlroy (15/1), who Open Championship prep included missed cuts at the Irish and Scottish opens the last two weeks. <br />
<br />
Royal Birkdale last hosted an Open Championship in 2008, where Padraig Harrington (100/1) pulled away from final round leader Greg Norman and Ian Poulter (90/1) to win by four shots. Returning the Claret Jug this week is Henrik Stenson (20/1), who topped Phil Mickelson (30/1) by three shots in an epic Sunday showdown last year at Royal Troon. <br />

    I think this is a week where Mcilroy catches fire in a bottle and contends for the win.<br />
    <br />
    If you watched Chronicles of a Major Champion on him, it means a lot to him to feel like he can take on the challenges of the Open Championship, since it doesn't fit his game very well.<br />
    <br />
    I just really wish he'd show up with a Scotty Cameron mid-mallet and not 6 different TM putters hanging out of his bag.

    McIlroy seems so far away. I'd never count him out, but I wouldn't take 15/1.

    Anyone know where these head covers are from? I looked on Sunfish or Stitch, but don't see them. Probably custom, but thought I would ask. <br />
    <br />
    Thanks! <br />

    Access here isn't like the PGA Tour, No inside the ropes. Like the Masters, shooting from very long distances. Also, David in the past hasn't allowed me to do close ups of his clubs.<br />

    So TaylorMade aren't releasing the 2017 Open Driver headcover to the masses - or so they tell me on Twitter. Quite frustrating given it's the only Major in the UK and the only headcover on their so called "Major Collection" that'd I'd want to buy.

    I want to pick Henrik... but he's hasn't been showing up too much this year. Rahm is hot right now, but not sure if he's got what it takes mentally (yet). Rory could bounce back at any time, so you still have to count him in. From there it's pretty much a crap shoot, there are so many great players just as any major, you really never know.

    I don't know about others but when I see pics of AS I get a sense it's just not gonna' happen. As for post above...don't see RM bouncing anywhere..any time soon. IMO he looks a bit lost...and/or disinterested.

    Looks like there is a hot melt port in the toe? Maybe a hollow head Fli-Hi? Looks quite nice.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
