Oosthuizen by 2, Sergio top 5, Spieth lower top 10. Tiger will make noise Friday but will out of top 15 by Sunday.

 

I just hope the commentators are good. It has been real hit or miss lately.

Trying to pick a winner for this years Open is like trying to skate up hill on ice.  There are so many genuine contenders out there that could win it it's crazy.  I won't be making a serious call until after Friday's round.  Even then the nature of the beast is that anything can happen.  Adam Scott at Lytham and St Anns was a case in point.  I thought he had it stitched up and so did he and Ernie got up and came from nowhere.  It'll be a great watch though and I'm looking forward to it :)

Shane Lowry makes most birdies in round 1.

 

I tells you it's going to be affected by weather, think the greens will need to be slow or the balls might blow off greens Friday and Saturday......

I have to go with Dustin Johnson winning the Open Championship.  I have been rooting for Sergio, and he hasn't come through for me; maybe he will with wbealsd picking him!

I will say it now... Tom Watson will be the oldest player making the cut.

Oldest player to make cut - it'll be Bernhard Langer. The rubbish weather, links golf specialist.

 

Keep your eyes out for young amateur Alistair Balcombe, plays college golf in the states now but hails from Bristol area. He won regional and final qualifying.
