I was just checking out tee times, tournament play is going to be almost over before i even wake up in the morning..lol. If tiger putts and is playing from the fairway, he is normally impossible to beat. But this year he hasn't shown that he is back in form yet. I cant tell you who might contend. The weather in this tournament is such an unknown variable.

If my math is correct Tiger tees off at 4ish AM eastern. He's my pick to win.

I am super excited about this tournament this year. I don't think Tiger has it together enough to win. His putting has been pretty brutal lately and you need to putt well on these greens. Haven't decided who I think is going to win, but I really don't think Tiger will be able to pull it out.

I think Tiger contends, maybe wins. Like Augusta, he knows how to play St. Andrews, and links golf, and as Watson showed us last year, that counts for something.

And I hope not... but I have an odd feeling Monty might muster up some magic. He didn't fare too bad in 05 here.

Other guys I expect to see on Sunday- Paddy, Luke Donald, Ricky Barnes, YE Yang.

Now that I've named half the field... I'll be rooting like hell for Watson and Phil.

It's gonna be pretty interesting with how much wind there is supposed to be. I'll pick Paul Casey...just a wild guess.

My favorite tournament of the year to watch!

Don't think Tiger will win, a european player is my bet for this Open.

I would love Rory to do it, but I'm not sure he's quite ready for a Major win.I think it's 50-50 whether Tiger makes the cut or not.Either way he doesn't contend for me.I watched him on tuesday and was thinking I could have holed a lot of the putts he missed, and that's not good..

Think we could see another first time Major winner, possibly Ian Poulter.If not him someone from the middle of the pack, another YE Yang type.

There are too many outstanding British players right now for me to believe that the Claret Jug will spend the next 12 months residing anywhere outside the Isles.

I've always been amazed at how Mickelson never seems to contend at the open. I think its the hardest major to predict a winner or who will even be in contention.

I'm going to surprise no one and say I reckon Justin Rose might have a shout. Dark horse, Charl Schwartzel.

Agreed. Each week he has improved on what he did bad the week before. The way it looks, if he gets his putting tightened up this week, he will be tough.

I'm expecting the same Tiger experience at St. Andrews as we've seen from him during most recent majors. He'll start with two pedestrian rounds, putting him around midfield after the cut. He'll shoot something to the tune of 2 or 3 under on Saturday to launch into contention and spark a media frenzy about Tiger on the prowl, even though he'll have left several strokes on the course. One more average round on Sunday will lock a finish on the back end of the top ten, but he'll never be a threat to win.

    • I don’t know if you’re just posting as a journal, but if you’re looking for feedback you’re going to want to film at better angles.
    • Really?  Knowing the name of the caddy would spoil the podcast for you?
    • Day 1: Aftermath of wife's company end of year celebration on Tuesday put my plans on hold, so trying again, again, again or whatever. Worked on backswing - focus on width and depth, with a little bit of toe-up feel. Did this indoors because it's starting to rain, used mirror vision to check on things (need to do this more often/always).
    • Played the back nine again at Minnesott with my son and my friend who’s working back from nerve injury to his right hand (numb little and ring fingers).  He’s contemplating larger grips so we brought a couple irons - one midsize, one jumbo.  He hit a few with each and said he could feel the clubs in his right hand better.  He’s going to work with a fitter about the best grip for him.  How did the round go?  It was a bogie kind of day - one dbl, two pars and six bogies for a 44.  Hit 5 of 7 fairways, the drives were finding the short grass today.  Not quite the same on the par threes, caught the tee shot with heavy 9i on 12 to nearly pin high, but right of the green. Pitched the 58 over the bunker as the pin was tucked tight.  Two putted for bogie.  The other three, 14 was a 6i flushed that landed ball at the back of the green and bounced just off.  Bumped the 50 to get the ball close - not close enough for a one putt par, but rather a two putt bogie.  While it wasn’t the up and down saves for par, felt the overall game was consistent today.  Best highlight was that there were only 18 putts - no three putts today!  
    • Day 23 (08 Dec 22) - Played the back nine today at Minnesott with my son and my friend who recently moved back to the area.  Drill work is paying off as I continue to see more consistent shot results.
