Bamberger: I like Tiger, Charl Schwartzel, Lee Westwood and Jim Furyk.
Anonymous Pro: I'm also going with Tiger right out of the gate.
Van Sickle: You didn't sound that upbeat when you were talking about him before.
Anonymous Pro: Well, he's going to be the favorite, and his track record there is pretty strong. Then I have Luke Donald at Olympic. Anybody can win the British, and since I'm not giving Tiger two in a year, I'll take McIlroy at Lytham and Martin Kaymer for an encore at the PGA after a year of starring as The Invisible Man.
Hack: I have Rory, Phil, Sergio García and Webb Simpson. How about Sergio? Talk about a great story. I love how he quietly won two tournaments this fall. We haven't heard the last from El Niño.
Shipnuck: Wow, that's strong, Hack.
Van Sickle: And also Tiger-less. I have Tiger, Schwartzel, Hunter Mahan at Lytham—although I have no idea why. So I should probably write in Luke Donald, who is going to get his major in '12. I like Simpson because the PGA is in his home territory.
Garrity: I'm with the others—I have Tiger, then Kuchar. Robert Karlsson is a no-brainer to win at Lytham, of course, and then McIlroy.
Van Sickle: We all agree that your Karlsson pick is indeed a no-brainer.
Shipnuck: This is my best-case scenario for the sport. Do I really think it's going to happen? I don't know, but it would be spectacular: Tiger, Phil, Rory, Rickie Fowler. Tiger winning the Masters would be the biggest story, but Phil winning an Open would be off the charts. You couldn't beat it.
