So, every single year i place a little bet on someone to win The Open, and every single year i seem to struggle to get it right... My last win was Padraig Harrington, years ago. Personally, i like to have a little bet on every Major, as i'm sure a number of you do. The only issue is, this Open Championship seems to be open to anyone, it's almost a sweepstake.
Justin Rose is hot in the eye's of the public, and from what he says, he seems pretty confident:http://www.goodwood.co.uk/golf-at-goodwood/latest-news/articles/justin-rose-blog.aspx
It's understandable, as he has literally just won, and seems to play well on difficult golf courses. But, call me crazy, i'll be rooting for Tiger at Hoylake. Last time he played there, his course management was stunning. Iron off the tee, fairway finding masterclass. It's just whether he has his head screwed on to do the same again.
So, i was going to bet on Tiger... But, what i want to do is a little test. I've attached a poll below, and whichever golfer has the majority of the votes from the golfing community will be the golfer i bet on, and think we should all go for. So, pick your golfer...
I say this because he is also my contest prediction and my top guy in a couple of side bets. It was Tiger when I was optimistic about his return, but I can't see Tiger winning any time soon, unfortunately. That is, unless something drastic happens and he breaks the rust off like a transformer or something.
