  1. 1. Will Sergio Garcia win the 2007 Open Championship?

    • Yes - He'll be in or near the lead the entire weekend.
    • Yes - But he's going to cut it close and have to get lucky.
    • No - But he'll finish in the top 10.
    • No - He's going to completely and utterly collapse.

I vote no. He made everything he looked at today and hit a lot of shots close. Neither of those can continue at quite the same torrid pace. He's still mentally lacking.

I predicted -6 would WIN this year, but I'm still thinking the weather will not be so nice at least one of these days to balloon some scores. 55 degrees is nothing - I mean some real wind and a little rain.

I also went with no, but top 10. Consistancy almost always wins the majors and Sergio is very streaky. I'd guess he'll shoot low-mid 70's Fri and Sat then and then around 67-68 on Sunday. If he can follow-up with another great round tomorrow then all bets are off.

IF he can keep putting like he did today. hes not gonna lose. Hes gonna have problems being paired in the afternoon but i think he can hold everyone else off and keep playing good golf.

I don't think he will. I don't have enough confidence in his putting. He's a great ball striker though.

Sergio + Tiger in the final pairing = great action...

He's been known for how bad a putter he is. And, well, now he's putting great! If his putter stays hot, I think he's got a chance!

I gave him the benefit of the doubt and said he would finish in the top 10. I actually believe that he will have a complete melt down finish out of the top 10.

The Golf Channel gave a stat saying that only one first round leader in Open history has gone on to win; I find this hard to believe given how old the tournament is. If it is accurate (or I heard correctly) then the cards are stacked against him. I personally wouldn't mind seeing him get the monkey off his back.

I've been on record as saying I think he'll win a British within the next several years. To me this is his best chance at a major, by far. I picked him as 4th best option this week so after today, I certainly think he can win. Will he? I kinda hope so... but I say he finishes 3rd after a final round where he makes absolutely nothing on the greens. Hard not to predict his putting to fall apart until he actually proves he can putt when it really matters.

I knew right out of the gate he would play well opening round.. he's due for a decent showing and i dont think he will completely fade out. Granted, he's streaky.. and his putting comes and goes like a prostitute. No one knows if the putter just got hot for a day, and come saturday he'll go back to missing everything outside 4 feet.. or he's got it for the remainder of the week. we'll see.

Off topic, does anyone else think Bobby Clampets anouncing is incredibly annoying?

Sergio Garcia is a media sweetheart for some reason that is completely beyond me. He may have flashes of great golf, but he will never be remember as one of the greats.

However I might be biased. The mere sight of him makes me want to vomit.

    • Don't think that didn't get noticed by yours truly. They always swallow the whistle in the playoffs. When it is your team involved you just hope the calls or non-calls even out.
    • Day 116.  My golf room was occupied, but while watching the U.S. Open round on TV, I did practice my grip, stance, and putter swing on a rug in my living room (the room itself is hardwood, so I didn't practice there, and the ball was hit into a pillow when I hit a ball).  I did the coins drill from Stan Utley's The Art of Putting, where you have two dimes 3" in front of the ball and two quarters and a penny an inch or so behind.  The idea is to miss the coins on the backswing and hit the dimes on the way forward.  I had mixed results, two things occurred to me: 1.  I don't know if that's still what is recommended for a putting stroke.  I know from the obvious thread what pace is like in a good putting stroke, but I'm not sure I really know the rest. 2.  I don't know how to practice a putting stroke slowly or what that would even mean.  That seems like something worth learning.
    • Second entry; this time for second question.  My father doesn't play and I don't have any children.  My mother's father played when he was alive and well, but that was before I had any interest in the game.  I initially wrote an entry about rounds played in the afterlife (and that'd be the stat: rounds played), but while I meant it as a serious statement, I had trouble phrasing it to not sound like a joke entry. So here's the entry:  my good friend [name omitted] needs distance.  To some extent, he's the guy mentioned at one point in TST:  he won't hit it that far offline, and when he's within whatever an iron distance for him is, he's probably going to put it on the green, and once he's on the green, he'll likely be down within two putts.  
    • Pretty hard for settings that are around infinity for the most part to be out of focus. Time for a new TV.  
    • Jack Nicklaus has small hands and uses an interlocking grip.  Give it a try and see what you think.
