2012 US Open Championship
Location: The Olympic Club San Francisco, CA, USA
Par: 34/38. Yards 7170 yards
Tiger Woods @ 9.8
Tiger Woods looks as if he's getting himself together again as he's won twice this year at Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard in March when he shot 275 which was 13tn under par 69 65 71 70,
Tiger is coming here of the back of winning at the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance when he shot 279 which was 9 under par 70, 69, 73, 67, this year he's made cut 8 of the 9 events played he's also had T2 and 3 top ten finish's.
His swing at the memoril tournament looked much better and compact, he seemed comfortable in himself like the old Tiger, and if he continues that this week then he's got a great chance.
Lee Westwood to get his first major
Lee Westwood @ 14.5
The best player in the world tee to green, won last week and if can sink a few putts he will be right up there.
Lee Westwood the nearly man looking for that big major win he's ranked 3 in the world he's been over in USA more this year and has played 7 times already where he's had a 3rd in Augusta and 4 top ten finish's,
In Europe he won last week in Nordea Masters when he shot 269 which was 19 under par so is hitting good form he's also made 4 top ten finish's here in European tour
Jason Duffner @ 34
Dufner is currently in the form of his life, he's won two out of his last four events and finished runner up in a third. The win at the Zurich Classic clearly released the pressure off him after so many near misses, and this was illustrated when he followed up three weeks later by winning the Byron Nelson. Past US Open performance hasn't been too hot, but he is a different player at the top of his game, so I can overlook this. Dufner's win at Byron Nelson and runner up at Colonial were both played on short(ish) shot making Par 70 courses, this appears to suit his game and Olympic Club will be set up similarly this week. In terms of performance statistics he is currently 11th in driving accuracy, 6th in greens in regulation, 9 in bogey avoidance, 17th in scrambling and 7th in par four performance. If he can keep his head when the pressure is on, he'll likely to be involved in the business end of the tournament.
Should be a great tournament
