WHO THEY THINK WILL WIN

-

BR That’s so hard. I pay attention to what goes on these days, but there are so many players capable of winning the Championsh­ip and I don’t know if I’d like to name just one of them. SL I think Rory almost has the perfect game for St George’s. He’s obviously not short of power, is a terrific ball striker and he’s a previous Open winner. GN It depends on weather conditions, but guys like Dustin Johnson because of the way he flights the ball and drives the ball really well, I’ll put him right up there along with Brooks Koepka if he can stay strong and fit. They’ve got effortless power and if its windy, that’s critical. BC Did anybody expect Darren Clarke to win in 2011? No. Nobody expected me either. It’s The Open and it’s unique, but basically you’re looking for somebody who hits it straight, is discipline­d and is in decent form. And if you can keep it out of the thick rough and fairway bunkers, you’ll have a great chance.
