Louis Oosthuizen has had a great first two rounds of the 2021 British Open, carding a 64 in Round 1 and a 65 in Round 2, bringing him to 11-under heading into the weekend and the outright lead on both the leaderboard and in the odds.

Oosthuizen holds a two-stroke lead over Collin Morikawa and a three-stroke lead of Jordan Spieth.

The South African pro currently has odds of +220 to take home the Claret Jug. He is trailed by Morikawa (+450), Spieth (+450) and Dustin Johnson (+800), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Other top names like Jon Rahm and Brooks Koepka remain in the hunt at +1400 and+1800, respectively.

If Oosthuizen can put together two more rounds like he has so far, though, it's hard to imagine anyone catching him.
