Open Championship course preview: ROyal Liverpool Golf Club Hoylake

May 1st 2023


The Open Championship returns to the Royal Liverpool Golf Club Hoylake for the 13th time. This historic track will no doubt provide high drama and breathtaking scenes throughout. It should provide a more challenging test to the players as well who've dismantled some of the Open courses over the past few years. 

There may not be a more important sport to bet early than golf. While it is nice to observe player form and you can definitely still make bets throughout the year and even the week of the tournament the value on most players will be long gone by then. You need to handicap a player's season projections as well as finding a someone whose skills match up with the course.

ROyal Liverpool Golf Club Hoylake course breakdown 

The 2023 Open Championship will be held on 16-23 July 2023 at Royal Liverpool Golf Club near Hoylake, Merseyside, England. This will be the 13th time that The Open will be played at Royal Liverpool. The golf course was first designed and built by George Strath and Willie Fernie in 1888 but Open champion James Braid helped to redesign it in 1923. Currently, the course is a Par 71 alignment that is noted for its wind-swept sand dunes and undulating fairways. The championship will be held at Royal Liverpool for the first time since Rory McIlroy lifted the Claret Jug in 2014.

Staying in the NFC West we make our way to Matthew Stafford. McVay upgraded his QB and Stafford upgraded his coach. This team was the talk of the offseason for awhile but it has cooled off a bit after the loss of Cam Akers. Which seems to be overblown a bit, running backs are one of the easier positions to replace and Akers really didn't even contribute for a good chunk of last season. Stafford should have a lot of easy throws, McVay had Jared Goff playing MVP caliber football a few years ago and Stafford is a pretty significant upgrade. He can make all the throws including improvising and making tough throws, things that Jared Goff really struggled with. Their defense is really solid and they should be pushing for a top seed in the NFC. If they do get back to the top of the NFC expect impressive numbers for Stafford and definite MVP consideration. Bet MGM has 18/1 on him but we think there is value down to 16/1.
