Sports – 2008 British Open Day 3

July 20, 2008 at 4:28 am Leave a comment

So, I had to spend some time in the office this AM and had the Open on in the background. I am impressed with what Greg Norman has done so far, but if the announcers continue to fawn over him for 6 hours tomorrow, I will yak. Yes, he could be oldest major winner ever (psst… Mike Tirico — here is a head up – if the dude becomes the oldest to ever win a major, then it is a given that he would be the oldest to win the Open). Yes, he got married a month ago. But the guy HAS won this tournament before. Also, if he pulls this off, he will be the FIFTH man to win the same major in three different decades.

I want to give some props to a local boy — Jeff Overton. Of course, the local paper is not giving him his due. The North High grad (hey, I went there too!) JUST qualified for the Open two week earlier with Top 10 at the AT&T. He is playing in his first major EVER — AND made the cut. He is currently tied for 35th, so he really has no chance of winning, but take a look at the some of the names below him: Els, Phil, Craig Perry, Lee Westwood, Justin Rose and guys that were cut: Stewart Cink, Geoff Ogilvy, Vijay Singh, Charles Howell III and Rory Sabbatini. Look out for this kid over the next five years. He has had a slow and steady improvement since he turned pro 3 years ago and has already earned $382,267 this year – and this week will definitely add to that total. He qualified for the FedEx Cup last year and is currently in 134th place. My bold prediction? He will be at least T30 and possibly T25 at the end of the day tomorrow.

My prediction to win. I will give you two: Greg (hey, he’s won this thing twice before) or (and this will require an Augusta like meltdown by the Shark) Ben Curtis.
