BETHESDA, Md. -- So, you think you know something, huh?
For those who believe they might have a hunch, a nigglin itch, about who might win the 101st U.S. Open this week, well, there's still time to reconsider before plunking down any dinero with your friends.
Listed below are the winners from the PGA Tour this season. The first column represents the ranking of the winner that week, while the second represents his Sagarin ranking that particular week. The OWGR and Sagarins are calculated over 24- and 12-month intervals, respectively.
In other words, more than twice as many players (seven) from outside the OWGR top 200 have won this year compared to those in the top 10 with victories.
Still wanna bet on the U.S. Open this week? Hey, it's your money, but we tried to warn you.
