The 2013 Open Championship is finally here, and if this year’s other major tournaments are anything to go by, we are in for a real treat at Muirfield.
One of the best things about professional golf is just how notoriously unpredictable it is. Before the Masters, everyone was convinced that only Tiger Woods could go home with the green jacket, but Adam Scott stepped in to tear up the odds.
It was beginning to look as though Justin Rose would never win a major, but he stepped in and proved everyone wrong at this year’s US Open.
So although it is impossible to know who will step up and claim the claret jug this year, let’s take a look at some of the players to watch at Muirfield.
