For about two years now, my buddies from work and I have gotten a little pool together for the four major championships each year in golf. How it works is we pick four players for the week. Scoring goes by the final score at the end of the week and whoever has the lowest score wins the pot. It’s normally just $5 or $10 and the winner takes all. If any of your players misses the cut, then after Friday’s round we double the score for the weekend. So I wanted to share my picks I have chosen for the week.
Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood, Justin Rose, and Rory McIlroy.
I think they are pretty solid. I think Tiger Woods will win it. I think the change in scenery and the course that he feels so comfortable on will play big factors in a great week for Tiger. I considered taking Phil as a pick but he has just not fared all that well in Open Championships. It’s just not his game. Justin Rose seems to be the hottest player right now with Lee Westwood always right there and just itching for that big breakout. Rory McIlroy is still a youngster but seems to play like a grisled vet. Three of my top four picks are all European and I think that will fare well for my picks.
Feel free to list your picks in the comments..
