Matt Kuchar’s 2017 British Open odds have undergone a serious change from where they sat on Wednesday. Pre-tournament he was being offered up at odds of 51.00, but now that’s he’s tied for the lead at 5 under par, he’s at odds of just 13.00. Kuchar is definitely in the group of “best players never to win a major” and the British Open at Royal Birkdale is the perfect place for him to shed that moniker. Birkdale is a strategy driven layout that plays well into the hands of a golfer like Kuchar. The 39 year old American also seems to have the flat stick working well, something that vexes him at times, as he had just 25 putts in round one. That putting performance was good enough to put him in the top five in the putting stats for day number one. The only thing we have to worry about sometimes with Kuchar in a major championship is length. Despite being one of the physically larger players on tour (6’4″, 195 pounds), he’s one of the shortest hitters. If the wind starts to blow in the wrong directions at Royal Birkdale, he could be at a serious disadvantage.
