British Open Odds 2016: Best Bets & Sleeper Picks at Royal Troon

The last time The Open Championship (British Open) was held at Royal Troon, American Todd Hamilton outlasted Ernie Els in a playoff to hoist the Claret Jug in 2004. It was one of just two career PGA TOUR wins for Hamilton, who entered that week ranked 56th in the world. It's a reminder that, even at major championships where the courses are difficult, the fields are deep with stars and the pressure is at an all-time high, sleepers and lesser-known players can rise to the top of the leaderboard. While the looming quartet of Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy makes it a little more difficult these types of underdogs to win major tournaments, it also means anyone below the upper tier of players will have favorable odds. With that in mind, you can click through the gallery for a closer look at some of the best sleepers (anyone with odds longer than 30-to-1; full list of odds here) for the upcoming third major of 2016.
