The top nationality bets from the Open Championship for 2022.
Cameron Smith is the obvious favourite in this market but his form has been mixed a little of late. Herbert stands out though as the clear second favourite but is down on the fourth line of betting. Herbert ranks 5th in Three-Putt Avoidance and 13th in Par 4 Scoring. Form is solid with two Top 13 finishes in his last six starts.
There are plenty in the mix for the Top Englishman race but Tyrell Hatton looks the best hope. Hatton has two Top 6 Open finishes and his form on links and desert courses is arguably better than anyone else in the field. He is a tremendous putter. Ticks a lot of boxes.
All eyes in this race are on favourite Rory McIlroy and 2019 Open Champion Shane Lowry but the value in this market is with the very talented Seamus Power, who is knocking on the door of becoming a Top 30 player. Power has five Top 30 finishes in his last six starts and has finished 27-9-12 in the three majors this year. Power ranks 2nd in Par 4 Scoring, 7th in GIR, 11th in Ball Striking and 14th in Scrambling.
Top South American
Mito Pereira had one of the most stunning major debuts at the PGA Championship when he stood on the 72nd hole with the lead. He missed the cut at the US Open but profiles nicely here ranking Top 11 in GIR, Ball Striking and Par 4 Scoring. Four Top 17 finishes in his last seven starts.
