We have another double dip this week, with the Open Championship stealing the show as the Barbasol Championship offers the lower tier of the PGA TOUR a shot at glory. It's time to declare a one-and-done selection, as the Open starts about six hours earlier than what we are used to for other U.S. tournaments.
A selection for the Open Championship is normally tricky, but the perfect pick fell right into my lap. It's hard to burn a truly elite player at the Open, as weather could throw a huge wrench into the proceedings at any time.
Enter a man who tied for second in the Masters and had a chance to win the U.S. Open this year. That's right. Lee Westwood. He's showing up on the big stage. History tells us he won't win, but current form tells us he will contend. Plus, you won't miss him later.
At the Barbasol Championship, I have two criteria. Give me a guy from the Southeastern part of the United States, and give me a player with some level of pedigree or current form in 2016. That man is Roberto Castro.
Best of luck to all!
