On the first day’s play, several big names have already gotten off to a great start with Jordan Spieth and Louis Oosthuizen both jumping to an early lead on their opening rounds. 

There’s a lot to like about both players but punters are more likely to favour the South African contender since Spieth has had a tendency to get himself into contention and then drop out later in the tournament. If he can sustain this good initial period, he could be able to run up a really good result at Royal St George this time around. 

There’s a good mix of established names and up and coming PGA Tour members competing in the leaderboard and that means plenty of opportunities to get some action down on the top 10 and top 20 finish markets - a place where lesser-known contenders can produce outsized payouts. 

Taking a look at the initial odds, you’ll find that Spieth is trading as the betting favourite with a price as low as a 4/1 margin though his odds will likely drift higher as players finish up their rounds. Oosthuizen can be backed around a 5/1 margin and he could wind up being the player to keep your eye on before his price drops to a prohibitively low price.
