The Open Championship is always fun, because the courses don't look pristine and it almost looks like they're playing in weeds. Plus the weather is going to suck this weekend and make things incredibly difficult.
4 People to Watch to Contend
Obvious is Obvious- Tigger Woo - He's a staple here. It's mandatory that you say he's going to be in contention.
Mr. Pretty Pants - Ian Poulter - Mr. Pretty Pants came in 2nd last year. Expect the Pretty pants to finish at worst top 10 this year.
Spiderman - Camilo Villegas - There's just something about his putting approach and his goofy outfits that will work this weekend.
The Youngster - Rory McIlroy - He's made the cuts in both majors this year and improved from the 20th finish in the Masters to the 10th finish at the US to the #1 position at The Open?
3 People Who Might Surpisingly Miss the Cut
US Win to British Fail - Lucas Glover - Mr. Glover came out of nowhere to win the US Open. 1 Hit Wonders often get crushed come the next major tournament.
The Titties - Phil Mickleson - He's not going to make the cut. I guarantee it.
The Dick - Rory Sabbatini - Screw Rory Sabbatini.
2 People to Root For this Weekend
The Bitter Scot - Colin Montgomerie - His old and only has so many appearances left in him. And while most people can't stand the man, to a certain extent I enjoy the relatively pissed of Scotsman.
The Emotional Brit - Darren Clarke - Its been about three years since Darren Clarke lost his wife to breast cancer and what better way to remember his wife and honor Mickelson's wife's battle than winning to Claret Jug.
SERGIO- Fuck It I'm going Sergio and the Monotone.
