Next months US Open is going to an important tournament for Lee Westwood as he aims to get an automatic place in the Ryder Cup team to face the USA in September.
The big Englishman from Worksop is currently 14th in the points list and know that a really good week at Pinehurst could see him guarantee a place in the side for the showdown at Gleneagles.
You would like to think that even if he didn’t make the side automatically, he would get a captain’s pick from Paul McGinley as Westwood’s experience and record in the Ryder Cup is one of the best ever.
Westwood will fancy his chances in the second major of the year after his seventh place finish at Augusta back in April, and since leaving his coach Sean Foley, he seems to have a better grasp on his swing and feels more comfortable with what he’s trying to do.
The US Open starts two weeks tomorrow and will be live on Sky Sports. Make sure you tune in. I think we could see another European winner!

The long wait is nearly over as the first major of the year is just around the corner and it feels like an eternity since we saw Jason Dufner lift the PGA Championship at Oakhill back in August last year.
The players have arrived at Augusta today and they will playing their practise rounds, either on their own or in groups. For some players this will be a new experience, especially the likes of European players such as Jamie Donaldson, Victor Dubuisson and Joost Luiten. The last debutant to win The Masters was Fuzzy Zoeller back in 1979, so it doesn’t happen that often. Just to make the cut would be a major achievement for these players, and I’m sure they will be seeking advice for fellow European players before teeing it up on Thursday.
So the big question is….Who is going to win?
It’s always hard to pick a winner at any tournament, but even harder in a major championship. Augusta is a well known course, and The Masters is the only major that is held at the same golf course each year so you can kind of get an idea looking back through previous results who does well, and who doesn’t. So if you are going to bet, this is a good one to bet on.
Here are my tips for this year:
Phil Mickleson 12/1
Dustin Johnson 25/1
Rickie Fowler 66/1
Jimmy Walker 55/1
Zach Johnson 33/1

Tiger Woods is going into the Masters at Augusta a red-hot favourite according to eight-time European Tour Champion Colin Montgomerie. The big Scot believes that if Tiger can putt the way he has done in the past month then he will be virtually unbeatable.
Although the current World Number One has had his problems with injuries in recent years, this year has seen him win three times already and if he can win here in Augusta then I believe that Jack Nicklaus’ record is definitely in danger of being beaten by Tiger. It’s hard not to see him winning at least two majors this year which will take him to 16 majors with still a long way to go in his career.
Two days to go!
