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.

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.

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.

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.
