PostSubject: Who will be the 150th Open Champion?    Wed Jul 14, 2010 9:23 am

There is only one day left before the worlds best golfers take to the home of golf, St. Andrews, to battle the elements in the 150th Open Championship. With wind already touted as being a major factor in this years Open, the ability to pull a number of different shots out of the bag and smart shot selection will no doubt prove key this year (see how Adam Scott is preparing for these conditions: http://www.titleist.com/teamtitleist/b/default.aspx).

So, with just over 24 hours until the first groups tee off, who would you pick to be left holding the Claret Jug on Sunday Evening? Who do you think will be the 150th Open Champion?

Ian made some big statements about the rise of English players on the PGA vs American players in the press recently...

He and Westwood definitely has the game to back it up, lets hope they can pull it off @ Open

Since the English cant kick or defend a football for nuts, lets hope it will be different case with a Pro V

I'm taking the cue from golf.com and will put in my two cents for the following categories:

Favourite: TW... I'll pick him as my favourite in any major.
Dark Horse: Padraig Harrington. If there's a need to grind out results, I'd put my bet on Paddy.
Geezer (The Greg Norman, Tom Watson honourary category): Miguel Angel Jimenez... he's got style and swagger. And looking at the recent Spanish successes in the sporting arena (Spain in WC, Nadal winning Wimbledon), motivation should be high for a Spaniard to do well in other sports too.

Seems like it's anybody's game......with the inclement weather and strong winds predicted for the Open. Gramae & Mcdonald perhaps?

What a round from Rory McIlroy, equaling the lowest ever round in a Major:

We're looking forward to the second days play.

TW is just 4 off Rory but I will say that Rory's 63 is awesome!

" Driver: Titleist 909D2 8.5 R w/ Fujikura Rombax 7V05 "

He is one of the handful of Pros who is willing to use Regular Flex shaft instead of the stiffer flex used by most pros. Definitely no ego problem here. Way to go Rory !!!!!!!! Superman

Superb long putt to nail that.
