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

Tiger Woods isn’t just playing through the pain of his surgically-repaired legs every time he competes at a tournament, but he’s also battling the inactivity that came following his Feb. 2021 car accident. Woods has played in just two official events over the last 20 months and shot over 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 2022 Open Championship a must-see event. Woods will at least have course familiarity on his side since two of his three prior British Open wins came at the same course that will host the Open Championship 2022 beginning Thursday.

The 2022 British Open will tee off at the Old Course at St Andrews. With no top-20 finishes over the last two calendar years, Woods is a 60-1 long shot in the 2022 Open Championship odds at Caesars Sportsbook, while the top 2022 Open Championship contenders include Rory McIlroy (9-1), Jon Rahm (14-1), Scottie Scheffler (16-1) and Justin Thomas (18-1). Before locking in your 2022 Open Championship picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, it’s up almost $9,600 on its best bets since that point, nailing tournament after tournament.

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

This same model has also nailed a whopping eight majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the 2022 Open Championship field is taking shape, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected 2022 Open Championship leaderboard.

Top 2022 Open Championship predictions 

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the 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 a top-five finish in each of the other three majors over his career, but eighth place is his best British Open finish. While he’s competed in all of the other major tournaments at least three times, he doesn’t have much links experience since that eighth-place finish came in his only previous start at the Open Championship.

Scheffler’s driving accuracy percentage (59.85 percent) doesn’t rank inside the top 100 on tour, a red flag at a course with over 100 bunkers, many of them lining fairways. Scheffler also ranks outside the top 70 in various putting stats including overall putting average (1.592), one-putt percentage (40.85 percent) and three-putt avoidance (2.45 percent). Considering the glaring weaknesses in his game but extremely short odds, the model is fading Scheffler at the Open Championship 2022.

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

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

How to make 2022 Open Championship picks

The model is also targeting five golfers with odds of 22-1 or longer who will make surprising runs. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it big. You can only see them here.
