I’m sure, of course, that it will be either Phil Mickelson or Henrik Stenson, who are 5 & 6 strokes ahead of 3rd place, but it’s Scotland and the weather could be a factor.
Either way, it should be an entertaining next few hours, as the Open nearly almost is. I like both Mickelson and Stenson as players, so Phil winning his 6th major, or Stenson winning his 1st (and long overdue, IMO) would both be fun to see.
Stenson has been cool and composed, and this could simply be his week.
Will It Be Stenson’s Week?
Phil will surely have something to say about that, and given that he’s already got 5 majors in his pocket, I don’t see nerves being that big an issue for him, versus Stenson, who carries an entire nation’s hopes for a first Swedish male major champion on his Viking shoulders.
Stenson is hitting the ball much better than Mickelson, who is scrambling around the course – so given that Stenson leads by 1 going off, I give him the edge.
If not, Phil gets his 6th major title.
Any other result would be a shock, but that’s why they play all four days, isn’t it? Ask Shane Lowry about that…
Enjoy the final round on Open Sunday, I sure will!
