Read it, roll it and hole it.

Those are the simple words from a caddy to a golfer in my favorite golf movie, The Greatest Game Ever Played.

There have been numerous movies that Hollywood has created with golf as the theme, some based on actual events, others totally fictional.

It’s been said in golf that a tournament cannot be won in the first round, but it can be lost in the final round judging by what has happened in some of the men’s Majors this year.

The PGA Championship looked like a battle between Kevin Kisner, Hideki Matsuyama and Chris Stroud. Kisner held a one-shot lead over the other two going into round four. Justin Thomas sat two back.

By the end of the tournament, Thomas won by two, shooting a three-under 68.

Okay, it’s time to unveil my choice to win the Open.

Similar to the U.S. Open, I am staying away from favorites.

First of all, when you pick a favorite and he wins, that hardly makes you a genius.

When you take a long shot, as I did in the U.S. Open, there’s greater satisfaction if he wins.

His best results have been tied for fourth in two of the tourneys, the last one in the Arnold Palmer Invitational back in March.
