AND THE WINNER IS...
1. JIM FURYK
World Rank: 3rd
I'm high on Furyk and have been for a while. I picked him to win the Players too, but why not? Here's a profound quote: The guy's just good....Sure, Oakmont has some long holesO.K., a lot of long holesbut it will not be a bomber's course. It's the U.S. Open, and the name of the game is controlling your ball off the tee and into the green, and no one does that better than Jim. (Remember Olympia Fields in '03?)....He's one of the best clutch putters. Maybe Tiger and Phil top him around the greens, but I can't think of anyone else better than Jim....He nearly won at Colonial, so I think he's peaking.
When the toughest course hosts the toughest tournament, the player who's mentally the toughest wins. That' s Furyk.
