2005 US Open Predictions…

On the eve of the PGA Tour’s second Major, I figured that it would be a good time to make some predictions on this year’s US Open. (Note: The Open Championship is the British Open and not the US Open)

I thought I would make some predictions about this year’s US Open, including some other random predictions, which could stir some discussion.

First, I’ve got to start with the boring one.
Winner: Jim Furyk – The man, with a swing plane only a mother could love, will keep it in the fairway and back off enough putts to win this week. His game and composure are perfect for this week and I cannot wait to see him win!

Next, winning score.
281 – (+1). This par 70 venue will eat the players alive. John Daly has predicted that +7 will win, but the man has not played a pracitice round yet because it was too hot.

And some others:
Best Dressed: Ian Poulter. The man is a true classic when it comes to fashion. I expect him to pull out the stars and stripes pants this week. However, I hope and pray that someone wears Knickers this week in memory of Payne Stewart.

Best looking wife/girlfriend/partner: Woods. This is the only thing that Tiger has going for him this week.

Levin or Moore: Moore. Ryan Moore also is the low amateur for the tournament and will be the only amateur to make the cut. Moore is the complete package and Levin will not be making holes-in-one this year to get him into the hunt.

Highest Round: With much dismay, I’m going to have to choose Ben Curtis. After watching him win the Open Championship at Royal St. Georges, my man from Ostrander wearing the NFL Colors (like Payne used to) will unfortuately shoot the highest round of the tournament, which I’m going to guess will be 85.

Lowest Round: 65

I’m sure that there are more predictions that could be made, but I’ll leave it to my fellow bloggers and the comment section to include those. And the link to the pairings.
