There is so little hype about this week's major that you might think golf is a dead gay sport. Padraig Harrington won the last time, in 2008, back when he won 3 out of 5 majors.

Wesley Bryan has been trending upwards lately and Bubba just doesn't have it this year. Plus I don't think this style of golf suits his game.

Wesley Bryan for me please

Top 30s last two Opens I think.

Edit: I would love to see how Crossfield reacts too, it would be ridiculous.

LOL that nobody is picking #2 player in the world Hideki Matsu yo mama

Matsuyama is great because A) He overreacts and drops his club after a swing despite hitting a perfect shot and B) We get to see Spieth and Rory and all the other players asked about Hideki by the Japanese media at every single press conference and it is always funny.

Poulter opens with -3. I really wanted to pick him this week because he played so well last week (until Sunday putting) and finished 2nd here in 2008.

OTOH, Justin Thomas is dressed like a proper gentleman.

Ignore Bubba, I have him in there just because.
