The British Open has a tendency to yield unheralded champions, probably more so than any other major championship.

2012 will be an exception to that occurrence.

As Bill Pennington of the New York Times found, every winner at Royal Lytham has been ranked No. 1 in the world at one time or another since the rankings were established.

1976 champion Johnny Miller also pointed out the trend of top players claiming victory at this particular Open site.

Come Sunday, the champion should be one who has occupied the top spot in the world at some point.

These distinguished, top-ranked individuals include Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer, Vijay Singh, David Duval, Ernie Els and current top gun Luke Donald.

Find out which one of these players will come out on top in this bold set of 2012 Open Championship predictions.
