William Hill boost each-way Open Championship places to seven!

Justin Rose is the 12/1 favourite to follow up his Scottish Open success with victory in Merseyside

Make a profit if your golfer finishes in the top seven at the 2014 Open Championship

The Open Championship kicks off tomorrow and William Hill have enhanced their each-way terms which is great news for anyone wanting to have a few bets on this golf major at Hoylake.

Justin Rose is the 12/1 favourite to follow up his Scottish Open success with victory in Merseyside, with Rory McIlroy available at 14/1, while Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson are likely to be popular punts at 16/1.

Back any golfer each-way for the Open and you will enjoy ¼ odds for the first seven places. So if you back Scott with a £10 e/w bet at 16/1 and the Australian finishes in the top seven, you will be guaranteed at least £50 back from a £20 stake.

Many pairs of eyes will be on Tiger Woods who is a 20/1 chance to win the Claret Jug at this course once again, while new William Hill customers can claim a free £25 bet when using promo code F25.

  3. Place £25 on any sports betting market

You will then see a free bet of £25 credited to your Hills account once your qualifying bet has been settled.

Rose, who won the Quicken Loans National at Congressional a fortnight ago, said: “I came here on Wednesday and felt absolutely horrendous. It was like I had lost my game somewhere over the Atlantic. But the last couple of days I have been finding my feet again and that’s part of the reason for playing this week ahead of Hoylake.

“It was great to see the course in a completely opposite wind. The par fives are playing very easy on the front nine and there are some tough par fours on the back nine. I did well to hang on to my score on the back nine and made a few good six or seven-footers coming in.”
