Royal Troon Golf Club in Scotland will host its 10th Open Championship, with the first round of the year's final major set to begin on Thursday. Henrik Stenson shot 20-under par to win the 2016 Open Championship, snapping a streak of six straight Americans to win the British Open at Royal Troon. World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler will try to get Americans back on track at this course and aim for his seventh PGA Tour win of the season. He won the Masters in April and is the 4-1 favorite in the 2024 Open Championship odds. Scheffler will have to fend off 2024 Open Championship contenders like Rory McIlroy (8-1), Bryson DeChambeau (9-1) and Ludvig Aberg (9-1).

DeChambeau is coming off a U.S. Open victory and can become the first golfer to win consecutive majors since Jordan Spieth in 2015. Before locking in any 2024 Open Championship picks, Scottie Scheffler props, or golf picks at sites like FanDuel, DraftKings, Underdog Fantasy, PrizePicks, or Pick6, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, the model is up more than $9,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

This same model has also nailed a whopping 13 majors entering the weekend, including the 2024 Masters -- its third Masters in a row -- and this year's PGA Championship and U.S. Open. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns. 

Now with the Open Championship 2024 field taking shape, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Top 2024 Open Championship predictions 

One surprise: Tyrell Hatton, a 25-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The Englishman has three top-20 finishes in his last four Open Championship appearances, including a T6 finish in 2019. He is still seeking his first major victory, but he has six top-10 finishes in major tournaments and is the third-highest ranked British golfer in the field.

Hatton has three top-five finishes in his last three worldwide starts, including a win at the end of June. He finished in a tie for fifth place at Royal Troon in 2016 and tied for ninth at the Masters in April this year. This would be the perfect venue for Hatton to record his first major title, and his recent form suggests that it is a real possibility. 

The model has also examined where Scottie Scheffler (4-1) finishes at the 2024 Open Championship. It's easy to see why the world No. 1 is the betting favorite to lift the Claret Jug since he has 13 top-10 finishes on his 2024 campaign. He has won six events this season, including his second Masters earlier this season.

Scheffler surprised golf fans when he finished T41 at the U.S. Open, his only finish of the season outside of the top 20. However, he rebounded with a runner-up finish at the Travelers Championship after Tom Kim bested him by one stroke in a playoff. He enters the British Open 2024 leading the PGA Tour in multiple categories including total strokes gained (2.760), scoring average (67.78), birdie average (4.98) and putting average (1.687). The model just locked in its Scottie Scheffler Open Championship picks here.
