Inbee Park Is Our Best Bet For The Women's British Open

There is more live LPGA Golf to enjoy on Sky Sports this week as the Women's British Open takes place on the links of Kingsbarns in Fife and we are backing Inbee Park to make up for lost time in the fourth major tournament of the year...

Tips Inbee Park (each way)    Best Bet @ 16 / 1  
Stacy Lewis (each way) @ 30 / 1  
Cristie Kerr (each way) @ 35 / 1  

The Head Of The Betting

It is Lexi Thompson who heads to Scotland as a 10/1 favourite (Ladbrokes) after recently moving up to a career-high ranking of number two in the world, although she makes little appeal at such a short price when you consider she has managed just one top-ten finish in five previous appearances at The Open.

So Yeon Ryu has a much better record at the British Open as the world number one has finished in the top-seventeen in each of her past five appearances in this major. The South Korean, who has won two titles already this season, is a player for the big occasion as she has finished in the top-fifteen in ten of her last eleven major tournaments, including her success at the ANA Inspiration earlier this year.

Ryu's ANA success was her first major win since 2011 and she can be backed for a maiden Open title at 12/1.

Sung Hyun Park is next best at 14/1 and the 23-year-old recently landed her maiden major tournament by winning the US Women's Open, although a crack at Kingsbarns may be a bridge too far.

Top Tip

It is a player with a fine pedigree at the British Open who heads our shortlist this week though as Inbee Park gets the nod at 16/1 (Paddy Power). Park has finished in the top-ten in five of her last six appearances at The Open, including her victory in 2015, and she will be looking to make up for lost time after missing Woburn with a thumb injury last year.

Park is a seven-time major winner and she enjoyed a useful work out at the Scottish Open last week.
Tip #1: Inbee Park (each way) @ 16/1 with Paddy Power.

The Best Of The Rest

Ariya Jutanugarn won the British Open at Woburn twelve months ago but that was more of a parkland course and it is worth noting that the defending champion has struggled on more traditional links courses, while she has missed the cut in each of her last two major outings.

We prefer to focus on the 2013 champion Stacy Lewis who has finished no worse than 17th in her past six appearances at the British Open. Lewis finished solo 4th twelve months ago and the 32-year-old American is a handy each-way price at 30/1.
Tip #2: Stacy Lewis (each way) @ 30/1 with PaddyPower.com.

Finally, another American caught our attention en route to a tie for 4th at the Scottish Open last week as Cristie Kerr continued her fine run of recent form. The Lotte Championship winner hasn't missed a cut at the British Open since 2001, securing ten top-fifteen finishes since, and she completes our shortlist at 35/1.
Tip #3: Cristie Kerr (each way) @ 35/1 with Paddy Power.
