Odds for Past Open Championship Winners

Rory McIlroy won his first, and so far only, Open Championship in 2014 when he defeated Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia by just two strokes. The victory was especially meaningful for the Northern Ireland native as it allowed him to become the first European golfer to win three different majors.

Past 10 Winners

Year Golfer
2018 Francesco Molinari

2012 Ernie Els

Tiger Woods already has three Claret Jugs in his overflowing trophy case, but he’ll have to stick around a little longer to catch up to legendary linksman Harry Vardon, who won the event six times from 1896 to 1914.

Open Championship Winners by Country


Scottish golfers won the first 29 Open Championships, but the Yanks have been making up for lost time ever since. Americans have won the event a record 44 times since 1921 and captured 10 titles in 12 years from 1995 to 2006.
