Here Are the Fives Guys That Will Win the British Open

We can sit here and try to pick a winner all day long for the Open Championship, starting, interestingly enough, in just a few hours. But that's impossible. Nobody really knows who will win. But I do think I can narrow it down to five guys, and then let those sticks battle it out for four days.

So here are the five names I think have the best shot at winning the Open Championship, in no particular order.

Graeme McDowell -- If it wasn't for a nine last week on the back nine during the Scottish Open, this guy might be my favorite to win it, but stuff like that can really rattle your emotions. That said, McDowell is gutsy, and plays well when the conditions aren't favorable, and that seems to be the word coming out of Sandwich. Windy, nasty, gross, you name it, Graeme can handle it.

Matt Kuchar -- I just feel like this guy is eventually going to bring his "A" game to a major, and what better time then now, after his putter change to that "under the armpit" format he's using? I like this guy a lot, and think he fits the mold of a major champion, so hopefully if an American can do it, it's this guy.

Y.E. Yang -- He took down Tiger when he was at his prime, now let's see him take down McIlroy after a major win.

Scott Jamieson -- Sure, you probably haven't heard of this guy, but the man went birdie-birdie on his final two holes at the Scottish Open to make it into the field at Royal St. George's. On top of that, he has two third place finishes in his last three events on the European Tour, so you know he's riding a wave of confidence before the week. Also, how boring are lists like this if I name five guys you've heard of?

Luke Donald -- Fine, this is my pick. He's coming off a win, he's due to win a major, and he's good. Like, really, really good. I like Luke.

But what about Lee Westwood? Check out his chances right here.

Now your picks?

Justin Rose

Miguel Angel Jimenez. 274.
Why would he be called the Mechanic if he can't work his way around RSG?

Luke, GMac, Rory, Westwood, Watney.
Not really going out on a limb with those. All these players are great iron players, which is supposed to be the theme this week.
