Garrity: If he isn't injured or physically impaired, the winner is Tiger. He'll be ready for a treeless, wide-open Old Course. He won't go 72 holes without finding a bunker this time. He won't win big. He'll just win. Unless, of course, Robert Karlsson crushes the field as I've long suspected.

Anonymous Pro: I'm sticking with Luke Donald as my dark horse pick. I'm riding him hard, but man, the guy is playing well. I've been picking Lee Westwood to win majors, but now I'm not convinced he can close the deal. He was basically handed the Memphis tournament.
