The British Open, what is there to say.  It is the oldest and most historic golf tournament in the world.  It presents a whole new world of what golf courses look and play like, compared to the normal course over here in the states.

So like I did before I will start out with two contenders that have a good shot at winning it.

Rory Mcilroy :  Yes I know that he has struggled as of late and that I wrote him off in my picks for the U.S Open, but this is different this is the British Open.  These are the courses he grew up playing so if he has any chance to win a major this year this is the one.

Tiger Woods:  Yes I know I must be crazy for not picking tiger, but come on I can’t pick him for every tournament or else I would be like every other dumb golf fan.  But let’s be honest if you don’t either pick tiger to win or at least have him as being one of your favorites you are dumb… Any who what else can I say he’s tiger he is godly and yes he struggled here in 02′ but still he is playing great this year regardless of the last major.

Now here are some guys who will be flying under the radar but still have a good shot at winning it all.

Jordan Spieth- Yes I know he is 19, and yes I know he just won his first tournament, but this kid is good.  A lot of confidence in his game, and just a silky smooth swing.  Seems like a great guy and winning that last tournament should give a lot of confidence to win a big tournament.

Ernie Els- Last time the open was at murfield he won, he won last years open too.  Also his nickname is the big easy… ya that’s all you need to know.

Can I get a drum roll please….. no ok well here is my pick to win the open.

Phil Mickelson –  No I don’t like Phil and yes I am picking him.  One because he just barley won the Scottish open and also hes played really well in every major.  Also with how he lost the last major he is due.

Well let us know your picks would love to hear it.
