It is that time of year for the year's most brutal setup of a golf course, the US Open. This year it is contested at Congressional near Washington DC.
Since only three of the current players in the world top ten rankings have ever won a major, it is wide open. I think that I heard that the last ten majors have be won by ten different players, and that most of them were not in the world top ten at that time. Who knows who will win.
The "experts" have said that this course favors a player that plays well at Augusta. This is due to many of the holes being doglegs left, and the rough being graduated, favoring long hitters who draw the ball.
I would love to see Steve Stricker break through. Other Americans I see with a good chance include Watney, Dustin Johnson, Mahan and Kuchar. Other than KJ Choi, the most likely foreign winner would be a Euro in the top ten.
