Scottie Scheffler will be the man to beat when the world's best golfers come together for the 2024 Open Championship at Royal Troon Golf Club on July 18. The world No. 1 is having a spectacular season, as he has racked up 13 top-10 finishes and six wins. He won his second Masters earlier in May and closed out the month of June with a first-place finish at the Travelers Championship. Even though his best Open Championship finish was a T8 at Royal St. George's in 2021, Scheffler is the 15-4 favorite to win at Royal Troon in the 2024 Open Championship odds. 

The Open Championship 2024 field is full of major winners, including Rory McIlroy (8-1), Xander Schauffele (10-1) and Bryson DeChambeau (12-1). Open Championship 2023 winner Brian Harman is a 60-1 longshot to defend the title.

Top 2024 Open Championship predictions 

One major surprise: Tommy Fleetwood, a 30-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. The Englishman, who has made the cut all but once this season, has three top-10 finishes on the season including an impressive T3 at the Masters, so he has shown he can elevate his game on the major stage this season. He is also coming off of a solid solo 15 finish at the Travelers Championship, where he shot 67 or better in all four rounds.

Fleetwood has finished in the top 10 in three of his last four Open Championship starts, including a solo second at Royal Portrush in 2019 and a T4 at St. Andrews in 2021. He shot a 66 in the first round of 2023 Open, and he will aim for another strong start and a shot at his first career major victory.

The model has also examined where Scheffler finishes at the 2024 Open Championship. Scheffler has racked up six wins already this season, which includes his second major championship at the Masters in April. He's finished outside the top-10 just twice in 15 starts season and is coming off a victory at the Travelers Championship in his latest start.

He's been able to dominate the opposition thanks to his incredible ball striking. Scheffler enters the 2024 Open Championship ranked first in greens in regulation percentage (74.14%) and strokes gained: approach to green (1.485). He's also been effective on the green, ranking first in putting average (1.687) and 25th in putts per round (28,38). The model just locked in its Scottie Scheffler Open Championship picks here.
