Northern Ireland’s rugged and spectacular north-east coastline will come alive with excitement and expectation on Thursday when the Open Championship returns to Royal Portrush for the first time since 1951. The County Antrim club will host the 148th staging of the game’s oldest major, 68 years after it held the only other Open to be played outside of England and Scotland.
When the serious action begins, Northern Ireland’s Darren Clarke will hit the opening tee shot at 06:35 BST on Thursday. Despite the early start, the grandstands around the first tee are certain to be packed in order to watch the 2011 Open champion and local favourite tee off.

The Best Bets on The Open 2019
Here is our best bets at the Open 2019. Plus two potential outsiders with Big Odds.
Rory McIlroy – Betting Odds 9.00
The world number 3 is our best bet this year. Already at 16 years of age he shot a 61 score at this course and the home favorite could win his 5th major now. Big question mark if he can handles the pressure since everybody wants to see him win…
Brooks Koepka – Betting Odds 11.00
Brooks Koepka is not only the world number one and a four-time major champion, but he also has the benefit of some insider knowledge.The 29-year-old’s caddie is Portrush local Ricky Elliott, who Koepka says would become a “legend” in the town if he helps the American clinch a first Open title.
“I don’t think when he grew up that he ever thought there would be an Open Championship here,” said Koepka. “It would be cool to see him win.” The 11.00 odds on Koepka is worth a good bet.
Dustin Johnson – Betting Odds 17.00
Dustin Johnson is second in the world rankings and has three top-10 Open finishes to his name but he missed the cut last year and Portrush’s Dunluce course is likely to resist being overpowered.
Tiger Woods – Betting Odds 21.00
The 15-time Major winner is one of the best bets again. Woods won his 15th major this year at the Masters, 11 years after major win number 14. Woods is currently number 5 at the rankings and 21.00 is a great odds on Tiger.
Henrik Stenson – Betting Odds 26.00
The first and only Swede to win a major showed rising form last week at the Scottish Open and could be an outsider for the title. He is looking for his second major and second Open championship this year. In 2016 he won the Open at the Royal Troon with the best score in history at -20.
OUTSIDERS WITH BIG ODDS
Phil Michelson – Betting Odds 101.00
The last of Phil Mickelson’s five majors came at The Open in 2013 but he has missed six cuts in his past 10 tournaments this year and has taken drastic action in a bid to find some form.
The 49-year-old said on social media he has shed 15lbs after a six-day fast that saw him drink water and a “special coffee blend” before arriving in Northern Ireland. The 101.00 is Too good not to bet on!
Bubba Watson – Betting Odds 176.00
The 40-year old and two time Masters champion has a 23rd place finish as his best result at the Open and has not been at his very best the last couple of years…but if he finds his top level… 176.00 times your bet is just too good.
