The Longshots Report is your guide to high-priced golfers that can earn us profits in some of the less popular markets without winning the Tournament – First Round Leader, Top 10, 20, Make Cut etc

Last week’s Longshots Report at the Scottish Open didn’t fare too well, with just two of our six making it through to the weekend. As is the nature of taking big prices, we don’t expect to get big collects all the time but we’re hoping for better this week. We’ve moved on to St Andrews for the year’s last Major championship – the British Open, or commonly referred to as The Open.

You can also check out the Golf Insider’s full preview for the tournament right here.

Here’s our British Open Hit Squad:

  • Marc Leishman @ $81 :flag-au:
  • Ryan Fox @ $67 :flag-au:
  • Christiaan Bezuidenhout @ $101 :flag-za:
  • Wyndham Clark @ $251 :us:
  • Joo-hyung (Tom) Kim @ $101 :kr:

And the details:

Marc Leishman @ 81 :flag-au:
2022 hasn’t been a great year for Leish but he has played well in the Majors – 14th at US Open, 34th at the USPGA and 30th at Augusta. He’s been around for a while now, possibly engineering his potential “peaks” around the big weeks. In his British Open form guide, 3 finishes of Top 6 or better from 2014-2017 including 2nd here at St Andrews (2015) when beaten in a playoff by Zach Johnson. To make that playoff he shot 64-66 on the weekend, simply super scoring.


Ryan Fox @ 67 :flag-au:
Has made 4 cuts out of 5 at The Open with a best of 16th in 2019. Fox’s game has gone from strength to strength since his win at Ras Al Khaimah back in February. He went back to NZ for the first time in a couple of years immediately after winning for a well-earned break. He’s returned with some blistering form – 15-9-8-2-54-2-Cut-3-2-47. For some context, the 54th was at the USPGA Championship, the Missed Cut was at the US Open, and the 47th was last week in Scotland, when loads of big names missed the Cut. The other finishes listed amount to 6 Top 10’s and a Top 20 from 7 starts. Very, very, solid golf. His game needs to go up another level to contend this week, but he should be feeling very confident.


Christiaan Bezuidenhout @ 101 :flag-za:
It’s been a very decent 6-start block for Bezuidenhout starting with the Byron Nelson Classic in mid-May. His results starting there 12-Cut-15-Cut-2-16. So that would be 4 Top 20’s and 2 Missed Cuts (at the USPGA Championship and the Travelers Championship after a 3-week break). The 2 most recent starts were his strong all round performance for 2nd at the John Deere followed by 16th last week in Scotland where he finished with 66 which was just a shot above the lowest round of the day. That warm-up positions him well for this test at St Andrews. With the course playing very firm, his lack of distance won’t be much of a disadvantage, he’s right in this.


Wyndham Clark @ 251 :us:
Clark played some very consistent links golf last week in Scotland with scores of 71-70-70-67. He’ll be really looking forward to this week’s test which will be his Open debut. No reason to think he can’t get through to the weekend and do a little better.


Tom Kim @ 101 :kr:
He’s the man they call “Tom” because of his affinity for Thomas the Tank Engine when he was a kid. Tom has quietly moved up to #39 in the world courtesy of another fruitful season across Asia which has given him loads of confidence in these mid-year events. His last 2 starts have delivered 23rd at the US Open followed by his excellent 3rd in Scotland, where he got under the guard of many. Unfortunately we’re not getting the $401 that was on offer last week but there’s some quiet confidence for this guy after such an excellent finish.
