The British Open is my favourite major.
I don't know why I love it so much, it could be because it is so different, the links style, the wind, and the conditions are just not seen any other time of the year.
It could be the history, in the land where golf was created, at the oldest tournament in the world the Open provides a sort of mystique about it.
If the wind is not blowing, the course is always unassuming, but when the wind is up, the course always shows it's bite.
But maybe the best reason why I love the British Open is because of where I live.
As a kid, I would wake up, watch the Open, and go out in the afternoon and pretend I was the hero I just watched on TV for five hours.
The British Open is a special time for me and many other people around the world.
Here are 5 of my bold predictions for the third major of the year.
As always, feel free to comment with your predictions for this year's tournament.
