Open Championship Predictions 2011

Most Likely To Win (Part 1): Someone that none of us are really thinking about. I can see the eventual winner coming from one in this group: Francesco Molinari, Fredrik Jacobson, Henrik Stenson, Hunter Mahan, Louis Oosthuizen,  Matteo Manassero, Peter Hanson, Rickie Fowler, Robert Karlsson, Ross Fisher, Y-E Yang, Alvaro Quiros, Geoff Ogilvy, Jim Furyk, Stewart Cink, Zach Johnson. All of these are middle of the pack players, odds-wise. Sure, it wouldn’t be as surprising as a Louis Oothuizen or Ben Crane win, but none of these are being pushed by the prognosticators.

Most Likely To Win (Part 2): Luke Donald

Most Likely To Win (Part 3): Rory McIlroy

American Most Likely To Win: Steve Stricker. He has the patience, I think, to put together a run on the unpredictable links.

Who Won’t Win: Lee Westwood. He’s the new Colin Montgomerie.

Guy I Most Want To Win (Part 1): Phil Mickelson. What can I say? I’m a fan. But he won’t win. His gambling style isn’t suited for the Open Championship, where trying to force the issue will kill you.

Guy I Most Want To Win (Part 2): Sergio Garcia.
