US Open: Boys to Watch at The Black

“Hooks and Slices” will bring you our view on whats happening in the golf world.

There are so many great golfers ready to tee it up at The US Open on Thursday. The stage is set for another memorable tournament. This Open will have to go a long way to even come close to the drama that took place last year at Torrey Pines. These may be some of the players that we are talking about on Sunday night as they hoist the trophy.

*** Of course we have to pick the best golfer in the world. If Tiger brings his “Memorial Game” to Bethpage he’ll be one major closer to Jack.

*** Phil Mickelson playing is a great story. If Phil is able to contend, the roar from the galleries will shake the earth. Phil will be feeling the love all week.

***Angel Cabrera has two majors in the last two years but still flies under the radar. He is the Rodney Dangerfield of golf, he gets no respect.

***Sean O’Hair and Nick Watney. These are the young studs of American golf right now. They are playing well and should be ready to break through for a major win.

*** Geoff Ogilvy, Jim Furyk, Retief Goosen. These guys will contend at any major and could pick up another Open trophy this week. All former champions, they have the game to contend at The Black.

***Zach Johnson and David Toms. These two aren’t long but they are straight. They will be up against it at Bethpage but their consistency can get them in contention.

*** Englishmen Paul Casey, Ian Poulter and Luke Donald would like to claim the US Open trophy for their first major and finally break the European Curse.

***Miguel Angel Jimenez is my “Coolest Guy in Golf Dark Horse” pick. If he wins his first major, he’ll be smoking his cigar and drinking his wine right on the eighteenth green.
