A Few Who Could Win, But Won't

Angel Cabrera

Shouldn’t he be a contender at any major, what with a U.S. Open (2007) and Masters (2009) to his credit? But he’s missed as many Open cuts as he’s made (five each), and his best finish here (tied-4th) came 10 years ago.

Martin Kaymer

The 24-year-old German has won the last two events on the European Tour, making him a hot choice here. But do golfers not named “Woods” win three events in a row?

Kenny Perry

There is no more resurgent 48-year-old in the world than the Kentuckian who infamously botched the final two holes of the Masters — he’s now ranked fourth in the world — but he hasn’t played in the British since 2006, and once skipped it 11 years in a row.

Vijay Singh

The ultimate PGA Tour grinder is still ranked 10th in the world, but he has all of three top-10 finishes in 20 appearances in the British Open.

Lee Westwood

After Casey and Poulter, England’s best hope. But has time passed Westwood by? Never has finished higher in a major than third, one shot out of the epic Rocco Mediate-Tiger Woods playoff at last year’s U.S. Open.
