UP Open: Schauffele
The Open: Leishman
I could get down with this, although Phil winning a US Open anymore seems like a pipe dream.
I just placed a bet on some outsiders at each event:
Masters – Kisner @ $126
US Open – Schauffele @ $81
The Open – Leishman @ $41
PGA Championship – C. Hoffman @ $51
Stake - $1
Payout - $21,340,746
Masters - Rory
Us Open - Branden Grace
The Open - Fleetwood
Pga - Hideki
Masters - Rahm
US Open - Cantley
British - Leishman
PGA - Rory
It does a little bit, but I’m still holding out hope.
All in with these picks, but with Big Leish and “Rock on Tommy” F in a playoff at Carnoustie.
I’ll be rooting for Tommy, but the real winner will be golf.
Making a pre-valnetine’s pivot:
Masters: Chez Reavie: The experience garnered from his 2002 Augusta visit finally pays off as Reavie joins the proud list of Masters Champions under 5’7" (Player, Woosnam) who wear a green jacket sized “Youth Medium”
US Open: Patton Kizzire: The third win of the season for the newly dubbed “General” and, much to the chagrin of NBC, a lock for the Ryder Cup.
Open Championship: Tom Lehman. Are you laughing? Are you? Keep in mind, 10 years ago Greg Norman started this strange Open Championship phenomenon where former major winners over 50 suddenly appear in the final group of the Open. Watson did it again in 2009. This year my pick is Lehman to close the deal.
PGA: Pat Perez. I’m picking affable Californian for the title which should be fun, but what I’m really excited about is the subsequent war of words between Perez and the PGA, Furyk and anyone else who has anything to do with the Ryder Cup team that Perez gets left off of.
US Open: Day
Open Championship: Fleetwood
PGA Championship: Rahm
Masters: Justin Rose
US Open: Hideki
