I gotta be honest, I really am starting to think Matt Kuchar is going win this tournament. He is arguably the best all around ball-striker on tour. He ranks 2nd in the "all around" category on tour and I really like what he did with his putting last week at the Memorial (Dave Stockton had him switch to a longer putter, and completely deloft the 7 degrees on it by pushing his hands way forward)
I'd like to say Luke Donald or Lee Westwood, but those Englishmen can't close out big tournaments! Donald is a top 10 machine, but he only has 7 career wins worldwide which is amazing considering how talented he is. Donald was quoted as saying the thick rough at Murifield Village was causing him problems. If the thick rough at Murifield is causing him problems I really don't know how he'll win the US Open. And he's had difficulty driving the ball. For someone who is such a great iron player his accuracy off the tee isn't very good and I think it could cost him at the Open. And Lee Westwood is long overdue for a major. But again, it seems like he finds ways to lose BIG tournaments. Look at the BMW Championship last weekend. He had a 2 shot lead with 3 holes to go, and 17 and 18 were 5 pars. He finished bogey, par, par and lost in a playoff to Donald. I just think it's Kuchars time. He's playing so well.
