U.S. Open predictions?
I think it's gonna be Tiger Woods. This is his year, and he's physically back as far as I'm concerned. Now mentally, I don't know, I hope so. He's gonna own Merion.
Yeah Tiger's definitely back and I think he should be the favorite. That being said, Phil Mickelson had a great showing at the St. Jude Classic and I'd never ever rule out Adam Scott and/or Rory McIllroy as favorites too.
Yeah Mickelson always chokes at the Open though, he'll choke again.
Rory McIllroy wins it. And I tend to agree with Howdy on Mickelson, though I wouldn't call second place finishes "choking" exactly.
Okay, NOW I consider Mickelson's second place U.S. Open finishes (6) officially "choking." I just knew he was gonna do it when he got the eagle, but nope. Howdy high, hats off for calling it.
I feel bad "predicting" yet another Mickelson choke, but yep, it happened again. I'll say what I always say: Maybe next year for him. Or not.
