The Tout’s tips for The Open 2014
It’s that time of year again when the world’s best professional and amateur golfers turn up for the toughest tournament in golf. The crucial word is links play which is so different from every other top course that they play on.
The wind is a game changer and so few have the game to handle it. The winner needs to have superb long iron skills combined with a smooth putter.
The Tout has been lucky for the past two years and from four selections has produced the winner for The Steeple Times. This time we are again selecting three players and at the top of our list is Graham McDowell at 33/1, Tiger Woods at 20/1 and Lee Westwood at 70/1. He would be the most popular winner of all.
McDowell is a player in form but ignore Tiger’s self-belief at your peril because if he is now pain free then he could reemerge as better than the Tiger of old. You don’t have to be young to win this tournament and experience counts for more than big hitting. Enjoy the spectacle and The Tout will be celebrating in style should either of these three lift The Claret Jug on Sunday evening.
