2018 British Open odds: DJ, Rory McIlroy among the favorites, Tiger Woods an interesting choice

It should come as absolutely no surprise this week that the world's No. 1-ranked golfer, Dustin Johnson, opens the 147th Open Championship atop the board as the favorite to win the entire thing.

DJ opens with 12-1 odds entering the tournament on Thursday, followed closely by the trio of Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose. Defending champion Jordan Spieth is listed next with two-time U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka just behind that foursome, and three-time Open winner Tiger Woods sits less than a dozen spots behind DJ.
