Majors 2016: Our writers’ predictionsJanuary 6, 2016 Golf News
Who will come out top in 2016?
Dan Murphy – Editor
Masters Bubba Watson: He deals in the even-numbered years.
US Open Rory McIlroy: Oakmont is playable from where McIlroy drives it.
The Open Sergio Garcia: Same as every other year but this time it’s different. Get on him now.
PGA Jason Day: A rare Major defence shuts out Jordan Spieth for the year.
World No.1 in December Rory will get his own back on Jordan.
One to watch (outside world top 50) David Lingmerth.
One to ï¬‚op (inside world top 50) Henrik Stenson.
Mark Townsend – Deputy Editor
Masters Jordan Spieth: Now think he is bordering on being the perfect thinking golfer and record at Augusta impossible to pick holes in – 2nd, 1st.
US Open Jason Day: Four top 10s in last ï¬ve US Opens and can square the circle after last year’s vertigo problems.
The Open Rickie Fowler: Already a winner in Scotland and will continue American run at Troon.
PGA Justin Rose: Too good these days not to add a second Major.
World No.1 Spieth, see above.
One to watch Thomas Pieters.
One to ï¬‚op Sergio Garcia.
James Savage– Equipment Editor
Masters Justin Rose: Might need to shoot a couple better than last year’s -14 to get over the line.
US Open Dustin Johnson: You have to think that he’ll get the job done at some point.
The Open Jordan Spieth: He’ll add to the run of American dominance at Royal Troon.
PGA Rory McIlroy: After a string of near misses, he’ll come good.
World No.1 Rory, will ï¬nish in the top 10 of every Major and pick up a few more wins.
One to watch Kristoffer Broberg.
One to ï¬‚op Jason Day.
