Bamberger: Dustin Johnson plays well in Northern California. He's extremely long, is supermotivated after being out and probably has a lot to prove for various reasons.
Garrity: The guy who reminds me of Lucky Lee Janzen, who won the last Open at Olympic when his ball fell out of a tree, is Donald. He's the kind of technician who solves Olympic. Oh, and he's also Number 1 in the world.
Anonymous Pro: I like Luke too. If he wins a major, it's going to be a U.S. Open. His driving isn't the greatest, but nobody is going to lace it down the off-kilter fairways at Olympic. Luke is probably the best scrambler in the game. Janzen was never a great ball striker, but he was a great scrambler.
Van Sickle: I'm on the Dufner bandwagon. I just hope he doesn't run out of gas before the Open. He's a fairways-and-greens guy in the Ben Hogan mold.
Hack: I love the way Louis Oosthuizen's game has come back. I love his swing. If he's putting well, he'll be on the leader board.
Van Sickle: Dark horses? I like Furyk, whose ability to work the ball both ways should be huge at twisty-turny Olympic. Plus he's tougher than a steel lunch pail.
Garrity: My dark horse is Lee Westwood.
Bamberger: I reject Westwood as a long shot. He's Number 3 in the world.
Shipnuck: Nick Watney is long and has great ball control.
Anonymous Pro: I don't think driving matters at Olympic. Nobody is going to hit that many fairways. I'll take Geoff Ogilvy, who's long, hits it high and is a great putter.
