Who: Tough (always is, so I'll pick 3) Rose, Rory, or Day.
How: By shooting the lowest score.

I myself will "stick my neck out" and predict that Rickie Fowler will win in a playoff.

As long as Tiger doesn't win, it'll be worth it. It'd be a complete success if he doesn't make the cut again. So sick of the press putting the entire success of the game on whether or not he plays. ESPN with an entire channel covering him? (insert vomiting sounds here)

BREAKING NEWS!!! The commercial slogan is, "These GUYS are good", not "This ONE guy is good, but if he's hurt, the rest of them are chopped liver and golf isn't interesting"

It's a TW playoff, with the Old TW taking down the new TW. Old TW will go birdie, birdie, birdie, birdie, while new TW will go bogey, double, triple, par.

I really have no idea, but my above statement assumes that Tom Watson is playing.

I'm still sick about Tom Watson's missed putt for par on the 72nd hole to win the 2009 Open.

Angel Cabrerra. He already has two majors and they seem to bring out the best in him.Winning his third would put him in rare company. He is one of the longer drivers on the tour and is very straight. I doubt that he will change his approach to hitting irons off the tees to avoid the traps and if he can hit fairways he can dominate.He also loves playing with Tiger and will be paired with him and Stenson the first two days.

Why should I burnout my brain trying to squint into the future if there's no prize giveaway? I like joe's pick, Cabrera. He makes a good case.

Want to support the ultimate underdog? No, not Tiger... There is an English guy working at a factory down the road who qualified for the Open: his name is John Singleton. I'll pick him to make the cut, and pick Rory to win.

@sjduffers... I just read a story on him. How freakin' cool is that?

Thumbs up for John Singleton. Just make the cut baby and cash that big fat cheque.

We profiled John Singleton last week here on oobgolf. And likewise, I would *love* to see him make the cut and get a big cheque.
