Royal birkdale hosts the British open this week and the rest of the field is happy because Tiger Woods is nursing his injuries while winning the US open. now lets look who will come on top:
Spain again or no no no no .... but wait a minute we have Sergio Garcia a Spaniard known for his tantrums nicknamed el Nino....remember when he spit on a cup after taking his golf ball? Never mind his attitude when he leads a tournament. if his put will cooperate he might treble the Spanish season.......for those who forget easily just a reminder The euro champions; The Wimbledon trophy and now the biggest golf tournament.
Woods you believe it! The Tiger has BEEM injured so someone ELS will win The Open. Wed LOVE to GARCIA British winner and WEIR hoping one of our LAWRIE load of hopefuls will CINK the opposition, lift the Claret Jug and carry home a CASEY full of DOUGHERTY.
Royal Birkdale will seem STRANGE with Tiger sitting at home in his slippers, but a British champion WESTWOOD go down a STORM ..
They might as well hand Sergio Garcia the claret jug now. All summer long Spaniards have been turning up at the winner's enclosure as regularly as olives on a saucer in a tapas bar. Spain's football team won the European Championship, Rafael Nadal won the French Open and Wimbledon and Alejandro Valverde won the opening stage of the Tour de France.
Goodness me, a Spanish horse called Equiano even romped home on the opening day of Royal Ascot. Garcia must be a certainty for the Open. The 28-year-old Spaniard has already won the Players Championship this season, the biggest tournament after the majors, and finished second at last week's European Open. So he has current form and past form - Garcia's record at the Open is superb with six top-10 finishes in his previous 10 championships.
Spanish claret: Can Sergio Garcia
win for Spain again?
Dont be jealousy its all about talent .
