Golf’s Major season is set to come to a conclusion as the 150th Open Championship swings into action later this week.

We’ve had different winners at all three of this year’s big tournaments so far; Scottie Scheffler landed the US Masters, Justin Thomas claimed the USPGA Championship, while Matt Fitzpatrick secured the US Open, so the question is whether it soon becomes a Gang of Four.

Collin Morikawa came out on top in last year’s Open Championship, becoming the first debutant winner since 2003, and the world number eight will attempt to defend his crown.

When is the Open Championship 2022?

The Open Championship 2022 is scheduled to be held between Thursday, July 14 and Sunday, July 17. The cut to make the weekend will be decided after the second round of play on Friday, June 15.

Where is the Open Championship 2022 being held?

We’re heading to one of the most prestigious golfing venues on the British Isles for the Open Championship 2022. The Old Course at St Andrews, Scotland is the location in question and it’ll be the 30th time in tournament history that the ‘home of golf’ has had the honour of playing host.

How much prize money is on offer at the Open Championship 2022?

A record prize pot $14,000,000 is on offer, which represents a 22 per cent increase on last year’s fund. The winner of the Open Championship 2022 is set to walk away with a tidy $2,500,000. It even pays to make the cut as the lowest-placed finisher bags $32,200.

Who heads the betting for the Open Championship 2022?

We’ve taken a look at Paddy Power’s Open Championship 2022 odds to pick out the leading contenders and you can see the latest prices on our snazzy widgets below.

Rory McIlroy heads the market as he bids to end his eight-year wait to add to his Major haul. The Irishman won the Open Championship in 2014 but was tied for 46th last year and missed the cut in 2019. He has enjoyed a decent year to date and finished in the top 10 in all three of the Majors.

Xander Schauffele heads to St Andrews in brilliant form after back-to-back tournament victories at the Travelers Championship and Scottish Open.

Jon Rahm has finished outside the top 10 in all three of this year’s Majors and slipped from his place at the head of the world rankings but the Spaniard remains prominent in our betting.
