Tiger Woods or Rory Mcilroy U.S. Open 2020
These are my predictions for the U.S. Open at Merion 2020
The course is small. The smallest venue possibly ever for the U.S. Open. That means the course is short at 6,996 yards it is under 7,000. You may be thinking it will be a birdie fest. But this par 70 golf course has a lot of teeth. First off there are only 2 par 5's, so if you were thinking that the winner is going to be the one that plays the par 5's under par think again. This still may be the case, but these Par 5's are difficult. The first one had its fairway moved to the right, to bring the out of bounds in to play, and the rough on the left is very thick. It is going to take a good Driver and possibly a 3 wood or 2 iron to get there. Did I mention the fairways avg. 22 yards wide? The second par 5 is 628 yards and unless the wind is down wind, you won't be getting there in two. Next comes the par 3's there are 4, and 3 of them are over 236 yards, pars are a fantastic score and there won't be many birdies. The 13th hole will be fantastic a short 115yd par 3, it will be a good, fun, short, hopefully a birdie fest of a hole. Expect spectators to be all over this hole. Next are the par 4's several are over 460's yards and only one over 500. This gives some good chances for birdies on the rest of the holes. Hitting the fairway is gonna be key, because the rough is so thick and deep. The only thing is the fairways avg. 22 yards wide! That is gonna make things difficult. The greens are heavily guarded by bunkers, other than that the greens are pretty flat, without much undulation. It is the U.S. Open so expect them to be very slick and get out of hand come Sunday. Did I mention that the fairways avg. 22 yards wide?
I know what your thinking he doesn't have a chance to win. He has been playing terrible all year. He has been nearly missing several cuts in the U.S. and on the European Tour. He may not even make the cut at the Open. But he is Rory Mcilroy! He won the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship by 8 shots each! He is the real deal. He may be struggling a bit, but he has had 4 Top 10's and a runner up finish this year. He usually known for hitting fairways and greens. His driving accuracy has gotten worse this year and has fallen to 106th on the PGA tour, but his greens hit in regulation is 5th on the tour. He has a great chance and defiantly has a chance to win another major. If he get off to a hot start he may win again by 8.
Then there is Tiger Woods. Coming off a good hot season in 2020 to an even hotter season in 2020. Yeah he didn't play good last week with a 79 in the 3rd round at the Memorial, but I wouldn't take that seriously. Everybody has a bad round, and now his it out of the way. Nothing to worry about and nothing worse can happen. He can look forward to being in contention and quite possibly winning the U.S. open and claiming his 15th major. Tiger has won 4 times this year, and got 4th in the Masters. He would have won the Masters if his shot on the 15th didn't go into the water after nearly making it. It was unfortunate, but it literally cost him the tournament. Tiger can hit his 5 wood around this entire golf course basically, and maybe pull driver on one hole. His driving accuracy is improved to 79th on the tour and he is 38th in greens in regulation, but his best stat is strokes gained putting which he is 5th. Expect Tiger to go off on a putting frenzy if he is going to win this tournament, and be on track to another major.
