Andrew Landry, the Open's Early Leader, Predicted He Would Win

U.S. Open Day 1: Winners and Losers
​After three rain delays resulting in stop-and-go play, GOLF.com Live at the U.S. Open discusses who the winners and losers of Day 1 were.

Before he jumped to the top of the U.S. Open leaderboard, Andrew Landry made a prediction to his father: he would win the tournament.

In a story by ESPN's Ian O’Connor about Landry's road to Oakmont, O'Connor recounts this exchange between father and son before the U.S. Open began.

"I'm going to win this tournament," Landry told his dad. His father, Dwain Landry, responded that he believed Andrew could do it, no matter how unlikely that scenario seemed to the rest of the world.

With a first-round 66, Landry has already proven that he is capable of world-class golf. Read the rest of the story about Landry's Texas roots and strong family connection.
