I'll also be hoping an Aussie wins with obviously our best chances being Day and Scott.
Tiger is always near the top of my picks for a major, he's just too mentally tough to leave out. His wedge play was actually too good in Augusta. I think if he doesn't hit the flag on Saturday and go in the water he makes birdie and wins the jacket. Course is going to be soggy and birdies will be made.
I'm also high in G. McDowell this week. Dude hasn't been around much this year but he's got US Open game.
I'll round out my 3 "A" picks w/ Brandt Snedeker.
Longer shots include Zach Johnson, Aaron Baddeley, and Ben Crane.
Biggest sucker bet in the field: Rory McIlroy.
