Featured Pairings:  

Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Angel Cabrera (Round 1: No. 1 at 7:33 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 10 at 1:33 p.m. PT) — Mickelson is a sentimental pick to finally capture the Open after six career runner-up finishes, including in 2013 at Merion. He's finished second in the last two majors. Watson is a two-time Masters champion, while Angel Cabrera has both an Open and a Masters title.


Jordan Spieth, Jason Day, Justin Rose (Round 1: No. 1 at 2:17 p.m. PT, Round 2: No. 10 at 8:17 a.m. PT) — The Masters champion? Check. A Masters co-runner-up and former U.S. Open champion? Check. A guy who could've won both by now? Check.


Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler, Louis Oosthuizen (Round 1: No. 1 at 2:28 p.m. PT, Round 2: No. 10 at 8:28 a.m. PT) — Woods draws Players champion Rickie Fowler and 2010 Open champion Louis Oosthuizen. So, two guys who have won the last three Open Championships played at St. Andrews and the guy the USGA thinks will win this year?


Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia (Round 1: No. 10 at 8:17 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 1 at 2:17 p.m. PT) — While Scott and Garcia are not playing their best golf, they're compelling players. However, the headliner is Dustin Johnson, who is one of my picks to do well in this Open.


Martin Kaymer, Gunn Yang (a), Rory McIlroy (Round 1: No. 10 at 8:28 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 1 at 2:28 p.m. PT) — Can Rory McIlroy make it five majors? After thousands of miles of travel in a busy stretch caught up with him, will he be refreshed at Chambers Bay? Martin Kaymer hasn't been the same guy since winning the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2. What kind of defense will he have?


Webb Simpson, Keegan Bradley, Kevin Na (Round 1: No. 10 at 8:50 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 1 at 2:50 p.m. PT) — These guys are all interesting characters, but in the rare themed group this year, the USGA put perceived slow players together.

I think T trumped your thread Bones - you aren't offering any prizes - well except the opportunity to chat with you.  That's certainly worth more than a box of Golf Balls. :)

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.
