AIG Women's Open Championship 2021: Betting tips

The Spiv makes his selections for Carnoustie

They have been playing golf at Carnoustie as far back as the 16th century and the classic links layout is sure to challenge golf's best players this week at the AIG Women's Open. The weather is looking variable and the Spiv has his views as to who offers the best value in the betting stakes.
The trophy awaits!

It is hard to look past Nelly Korda given her recent wins at the Women's PGA Championship and the Olympics but she is not looking great value at the short odds bookies are offering (15/2). She also passed up on last week's Scottish Open so may be a little rusty when it comes to the unique challenges of links golf.
Lydia Ko (12/1)

The diminutive New Zealander has been knocking on the door at the big events this year.  After winning a bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics Ko finished runner over the Dumbarnie Links last week and is looking good as ever.
Ko had a stunning final round of nine-under at the Women's Scottish Open and we think she can carry that great form to Carnoustie.
Charley Hull (33/1)

England's Charley Hull is well overdue for a first major success. Her record at the Women's Open has not been great when by the sea but her ball striking at Dumbarnie Links last week, where she finished fifth, was first class.
If Hull can get her putter working and eliminate the small errors we may be celebrating another British Women's Open champion.
Ally Ewing (55/1)

Our outside bet is American Ally Ewing who was another player that had a storming final round at the Women's Scottish Open. Ewing from Tupelo, Mississippi, has had a victory this year, defeating Sophia Popov in the final of the Bank of Hope LPGA Match-Play back in May.
We fancy that Ally may well be in the mix come Sunday afternoon.
