  • 2018 British Open Predictions: Five Golfers Who Can Win Claret Jug

The 82-year-old South African, who won the second of his three British Opens at Carnoustie 50 years ago, believes world golf needs Woods back at the top of his game. Maybe more imperatively, he's going for his first top 10 at any major since the 2013 Open Championship at Muirfield.

"When I was a kid I watched him at Kingston Heath at the Aussie Masters and then I volunteered as a marshal and met him again at the President's Cup in Melbourne", Herbert said.

Rose has held steady at No. 3 on the rankings since claiming victory at the Fort Worth Invitational in late May, and followed up by finishing sixth at the Memorial Tournament as a strong +1400 bet before claiming a share of 10th place at the US Open as +800 chalk.

The 24-year-old and a swathe of his fellow young Americans threatening to dominate the future of the sport will also have a returning Tiger Woods. "I don't think the rain is going to affect how the golf course is playing in one day, but I have to just keep doing what I'm doing".

The Carnoustie course is the wildcard, several degrees of difficulty up from Ballyliffin and Gullane and bone dry amid a summer drought.


Fox talks of two-irons running 300m-plus which isn't necessarily a good thing, and makes aggression a risk with nasty pot bunkers dotting the parched fairways.

CARNOUSTIE, SCOTLAND-Kevin Kisner took advantage of light winds and warm temperatures to shoot a 5-under 66 and take the early lead in the British Open, where defending champion Jordan Spieth was also in the mix on Thursday. I felt like I was really going well.

Locke, whose progression has been helped by the Paul Lawrie Foundation, tees off his first round at 11:36 BST on Thursday with American Brandt Snedeker and Australia's Cameron Davis. It's always hard backing up a few good weeks in a row. I'm just trying to stay a bit fresher by playing nine holes.

TAB leading contenders: $13 Dustin Johnson; $17 Justin Rose; $18 Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy; $21 Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth, Tommy Fleetwood, Brooks Koepka; $26 Justin Thomas, Tiger Woods, Alex Noren, Sergio Garcia.

Rory McIlroy, the 2014 Open victor, was 1 under par with five holes still to play, but world No. 1 Dustin Johnson was struggling at 2 over at the same juncture.
