It will be good to see Nick Faldo back at Muirfield, where he won two Opens. He is the best English golfer we have ever produced. Okay, he might not have been the most exciting player to watch, but he did win five majors. He also did that after rebuilding his swing.
The sun is shining over here and that can only mean one thing, flowers are blooming, one in particular, that is, Rose.
Yes, I think Justin Rose has a good chance, as an amatuer he came fourth in the British Open and now he has the confidence of having already won a major.
Graeme Mcdowell is a strong contender and of course Phil Mickelson is a good choice, but having won the Scottish can he do two in a row?
Never rule out big Ernie defending his title.
I don't think Rory Mcllroy and Tiger Woods will win. They both can get frustrated with the setup of a natural British Open Course.
It should be a good championship, in the sunshine for once.
I'm looking forward to watching non stop coverage all day from Thursday.
