Podcast: British Open Winners, Sleepers, Players to Watch

Tuesday July 12th, 2016

The British Open at Royal Troon kicks off Thursday for the ninth time at the storied golf course.

Todd Hamilton raised the Claret Jug during the last Open at Troon in 2004, but things are much different in 2016. Dustin Johnson is blazing through the summer Tour schedule and sits alongside Jason Day as a co-favorite to win this week. GOLF.com editor Jeff Ritter joined Sean Zak on the GOLF.com Podcast and picked Johnson to make it three straight this week.

Beyond that, the discussion bird-walks briefly into a breakdown of Rory McIlroy's controversial press conference, where he said he could take HGH and get away with it and that he didn't join golf to grow the game. Next came a break down of sleepers and why Sergio Garcia, Lee Westwood and even Anirban Lahiri are valuable plays to win the Open. For that discussion and more, check out the podcast below.
