STATISTICS OF THE DAY

300-1 The highest odds available about Ben Curtis before the start of the Open. By yesterday morning he was down to 40-1, and several large bets, one of £10,000 and another at £8,000, brought the odds down to 11-8.

90 The number of years since a golfer won when playing in his first major tournament. The 20-year-old Francis Ouimet became the first when he triumphed over Harry Vardon and Ted Ray in a play-off at the 1913 US Open near Boston.

14,130 The size in dollars [£8,872] of Ben Curtis's first prize money this year, which he won in March by making his first cut of the year on the US PGA Tour and finishing one over par for joint 42nd place at the Bay Hill Invitational.
