Rory McIlroy Open Championship Betting Odds
Rory McIlroy is the favourite at odds of 7/1 to win The Open Championship in 2023. Those odds imply that McIlroy has a 12.5% chance of winning this year’s tournament and being crowned Champion Golfer of the Year.
The two other market leaders for the Open Championship are world number one Scottie Scheffler at 9/1 followed by 2023 Masters Champion Jon Rahm at 12/1.
Mcllroy has been a regular fixture at the top of major betting markets for well over a decade now. Typically he has been somewhere in the 10/1 range in the odds, and he even won this event in 2014, which was his fourth and most recent major success.
Could this be his time to win his fifth major? We all know when Mcllroy is at his best, there are very few who can live with him on the golf course.

Rory McIlroy’s Current Form
McIlroy’s Wins In 2023
The Northern Irish man has only one victory to his name in 2023, which came in the Dubai Desert Classic at the end of January and got plenty of press coverage as he defeated nemesis Patrick Reed by a single stroke with a birdie on the 72nd hole. Reed had previously sued McIlroy, so the victory was about far more than just golf and prize money; it was personal.
The closest he has come to a win since then is a T2 finish at the Arnold Palmer in March, where he came one shot behind the winner Kurt Kitayama and 2nd at the US Open, coming one shot behind Wyndham Clark.
Most Recent Form
Mcllroy has been very consistent in recent events coming in the top 10 in all five of his last five events. Since being cut at the Masters and coming T47 at the Wells Fargo, we have seen a different Mcllroy on course coming T7 at the PGA Championship and the Memorial, T9 at the Canadian Open, 2nd at the US Open and T7 again at the Travelers Championship most recently.
Recent Major Form
Rory has shown progressive form at the Majors this season. At the 2023 Masters, many predicted he would complete the Grand Slam of Golf, but it was not to be as he was cut at the halfway stage. However, in the two majors since then his form has improved with finishes of T7th at the PGA Championship and in the most recent major, the US Open, he finished in 2nd place.
Rory McIlroy’s Open Championship Form
McIlroy has had mixed success at the Open Championship, with his best result coming back in 2014 when he won the event. It’s also very noteworthy that his lone Open Championship win came at Royal Liverpool given that this year’s Open will also be held at Royal Liverpool Golf Club. That means that Mcllroy is the last major winner to win on this course, something that certainly goes in his favour.
His full record at the event is 11/13 cuts made, 7 Top-25s, 6 Top 10s, two 3rds, one 2nd and one victory. However, in most recent entries into this event, his record has been on the poorer side, being CUT in 2019 and T46 in 2021 although he did return to form last year with a 3rd place finish.
Could Hoylake prove to be McIlroy’s good luck charm once more as he seeks to land that all elusive fifth major?
