British Open Predictions: Five Golfers Who Can Win Claret Jug

British Open Predictions: Five Golfers Who Can Win Claret Jug

He has three top-5 finishes and five in the top 12 but has finished within 5 strokes of the victor just once - his runner-up finish to Paul Casey at the Valspar Championship.

Woods will pair off in his first Open for three years with Russell Knox and Hideki Matsuyama at 3.21pm.

It is the first time Woods will have contested an Open Championship since missing the halfway cut in the 2015 Open at St Andrews while it will be the fourth occasion he has teed-up in a Carnoustie Open.

Rory McIlroy is the favorite entering this week.

Three weeks ago at the Quicken Loans National, Woods went to a new putter, a TaylorMade model that looks like a mallet and has grooves on the face.

"Nobody could have tried to play the golf course the way he did, and nobody else could have played the way he did", said Padraig Harrington, who won The Open at Carnoustie in 2007. "I like all of them".

Johnson figures he'll hit driver on half of the holes.

Reigning U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka was asked to compare the speed of Carnoustie's runway-like fairways to Shinnecock's insanely fast greens on U.S. Open Saturday. He's won three Senior Opens in the last eight years.

"Sitting here being a major champion, winning the green jacket, it just shows the hard work and dedication that not only I had, but my team and my wife had. I remember my dad on the range with me saying, 'Are you ever going to hit the ball past the 100 yard sign?" "It's going to be an interesting test to see which clubs we're going to be using off the tees, and a lot of it is dependent on which way the wind blows". "Even hitting sometimes four and five irons, they've been running 50, 60 yards". Reed won the Junior British Open that summer at Heswall, not far from Royal Liverpool. "It's one of the reasons why I think I really like the fact that this putter has grooves, so it does roll initially a little bit faster and a little bit more true and it is a little bit hotter".

"Like there were shots out there today where I was hitting a 7-iron off a par-4 and you just don't do that very often and it is one of those feel things".
