Looks like we have 39 entries.  Tiger Woods is, surprise, surprise, the most popular choice for winner, with 10.  Scwartzel has 6, Rose has 5, Rory has 4, Oosty has 3, McDowell 2, and it looks like if you chose somebody else, you were the only one.  :)

No suprise Tiger being the favorite, but really no one else took the Belgian Bomber? That is a suprise, he took the Euro match play last year pretty handlely and was a force at the Ryder Cup last year.

I picked him in the US Open last year, and he was playing well until he stunk on Sunday, costing me my driver, so I am punishing him by putting him on the end of my bench.  He has to earn his way back in the game! 

 

My new favorite European "sleeper" this year is Thorbjorn Olesen.  Somebody please tell me his nickname is simply Thor?  I don't like spelling people's names wrong, however, I don't know how to put in the o with the slash and don't like looking his name up all the time to see if I put the "J" in the right place.

Nah, he's just planning on them tying at least 17 consecutive holes in a row.

He had one super round at the Ryder Cup and was less than good in the other two rounds.

 

Olesen is going to be big, the Euro golf mags were touting him as one to watch a couple of years ago. Had a nice win last year and has been at the sharp end of tournaments this year.

 

Sky Sports still talking like there is going to be more golf today...... err no, put last years highlights on.

97 was an answer!? Same dude definitely thought the Myans were on the mark and Area 51 is at the turn? f1_cool.gif

A couple of years ago it was Jacob Olesen. Full name Jacob Thorbjorn Olesen. Don't know why he changed from Jacob to Thorbjorn. Maybe to scare his matchplay opponentsa1_smile.gif

LOL!

 

Rules question ... If one of them put a snowboard or a pair of skis in their bag for tomorrow in case this happens again, is that considered a 15th or 15th and 16th club, and thus a rules violation?

Thanks! That's me on my backyard course. I have a tourney twice a year and we'd burn the years collection

of burnable debris. That was a couple years ago, now it's a sandtrap.

 

Eat like kings, drink like fish, golf like mulyaks

When they said they were going to make golf one of the sports in the Olympics, I mistakenly assumed they meant the Summer games.

Olesens game does look to be in tip top shape the last couple tourneys I watched him in. Ill tell you what I saw a Nike add with all their players in the tourney and their team is stacked. Probably the best pro lineup in golf right now.
