Will it be a superstar or a young up n coming player to win this week? Rain and soft conditions will help the longer hitters keep balls in play and stay on the greens. Tiger looks in good form and has to be the favorite. Two young players that should play well are Kyle Stanley and Charl Schwartzel

Long deep rough at the Open requires strong hands and a steep angle of attack. The rough may help guys like Carl Petterson or Dustin Johnson with their upright swings. The Open will come down to putting and hitting fairways, this should favor a player like Graeme McDowell or Luke Donald that blend these areas into strengths

The USGA is testing Merion to see if a “short” course can be used in a modern US Open. By Sunday night, the golf world will realize what a special place this and the connection to history will continue. Scores will be lower than normal with the soft conditions but the course will hold up as worthy of its stature
