Bet on the British Open Championship

Mickelson is in the lead by three shots after tying the record for lowest score in a major by shooting a 63 on Thursday. He rimmed out a birdie on 18 for a chance setting a new record of 62. Mickelson won the 2013 British Open and is seeking his sixth major championship.

Kaymer is tied for second with Reed at -5 for the tournament. Both men opened the major by shooting a 66. Kaymer has never won the British Open, but has two majors to his credit. Reed has never won a major and never finished in the top 10 of one.

McIlroy is tied for 22nd right now at -2 after posting a 69 on Thursday. He won the 2014 British Open and has four majors to his credit. He was unable to play in last year’s British Open, which would have been his title defense.
