The 2013 British Open Championship presents an opportunity for any member of the field to rise up and claim a piece of golfing history.

In recent years, we've been reminded of the unpredictable nature of this tournament by surprise winners such as Ben Curtis, Paul Lawrie and Todd Hamilton to name a few.

Household names like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els start the event with spotlights shining on full blast. The cameras will catch their every move, from Thursday, July 18 through the end of the tournament on Sunday, July 21, as analysts break down their approach at each hole.

However, the majority of competitors at Muirfield will begin the British Open with significantly fewer eyes on them. That's not to say people aren't familiar with their golfing careers, just that most onlookers won't exactly be looking at them as front-runners for a title.

It's time to examine which wild-card golfers are primed for a potential run at the Claret Jug, providing they can put together a complete package and perform at Muirfield.
