Halfway through the major season and there have been two different winners. Bubba Watson won his second Masters, and Martin Kaymer won his second major at the U.S. Open
The talent across the field is deep. Predicting who can win any golf tournament is about as easy as holing a 7-iron from 150 yards out. Just look at how Odds Shark predicted the likelihood of certain golfers to win the U.S. Open. Rory McIlroy was 10-1; he finished tied for 23rd. Watson was 18-1; he missed the cut. Kaymer was 40-1.
Predicting is like a joker performing before a king holding court: for amusement, and maybe some food for thought. But mainly amusement. The criteria for the following golfers has to do primarily with how they finished the U.S. Open, but also how a few have performed in the British Open.
The U.S. Open is over, dads were celebrated, and when July comes, it's time to follow the jet stream and land in the Mother Country for some links-style golf.
