Kevin Kisner Sits Atop Leaderboard of The Open - Would Pay $150K on $100 Bet With Win

Kevin Kisner sat atop the leaderboard for the 2018 British Open nearing the end of Day 1.

Should Kisner hold onto the lead and ultimately go on to win, the payout would be $15,000 on every $100 bet for those who got in on action early.  Betting on Kisner after Day One will see drastically slashed odds, though there should still be value.

Justin Thomas was among the early favorites performing well on Thurday as was Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.

Among the favorites, Jordan Spieth collapsed in Round One.

A 6-iron into a fairway bunker resulted in his third shot having to be played out to the left and eventually cost him a double bogey. 

"It was an easy decision. I just hit the wrong club [at 15]," he said.

"I hit a 4-iron off the tee. I thought it was locked up and it ended up in the fescue.

"I hit a lot of shots I didn't think were as good and I walked up and kind of got good breaks, especially starting the round.

"But the problem was on the second shot I should have hit enough club to reach the front of the green and even if it goes 20 yards over the green, it's an easy up-and-down.

"And that's what I would consider as significant advantage for me is recognizing where the misses are, and I just had a brain fart, and I missed it into the location where the only pot bunker where I could actually get in trouble, and it plugged deep into it.

"It was a really, really poor decision on the second shot and that cost me.

"It felt like a missed opportunity. I felt like I was really going well. I had a nice par save after driving it in the bunker at six.

"Other than that, it was very stress-free. I was putting the ball where I needed to, having maybe no more than fewer feet for par on every hole. It was just a clean round of golf."
