British Open 2021 Odds After Day 1: Spieth, Oosthuizen Payouts

Louis Oosthuizen sat atop the British Open leaderboard after Round 1 and Jordan Spieth sat at a close second after leading for a bit.  Spieth is now the favorite at +450 while Oosthuizen was coming in at 5-1.


Spieth opened the tournament with a 5-under-par 65.  Coming in he worried about the extended amount of time he took off ahead of the tournament.

"That was kind of my one concern, I think, coming in here,'' Spieth said after making six birdies and a bogey to trail clubhouse leader Louis Oosthuizen by 1 stroke. "I felt pretty good about the work that I had done over the last, say, week and a half or so. But when you haven't played for a little while, you come into a difficult track, you can have a bit of rust early, and I was a little bit concerned about that.

"I think midway through the front nine today, kind of turning under par was just big to feel like, 'Hey, we're in the thick of things.' There's just a little extra nerves when you're not coming off the week before, just getting started. [I] hit some really good shots early in the round today, which I think was important."
