US OPEN GOLF .... Adam Scott and Padraig Harrington

I simply cannot see, one of these not being in contention come Sunday evening and hopefully both will be challenging.

Scott had a poor final round last week, but is a model of consistency on the USPGA tour. He has made every cut this year and has 5 top 10 finishes from 9 strokeplay events. Infact, if we extend this to cover the end of 2006, he is top 10, in 10 out of 17 tournaments.

After missing the cut in his first 3 Open's, he has slowly come to terms with the very peculiar nature of the event and after a 28th and 21st place finish, is ready to challenge.

He flew to Oakmont last week and played a practice round with Geoff Ogilvy, his score of +1 impressed everyone and was one of the lowest recorded.

Padraig's game is in good shape and he has recently recorded a win in his national championship, which looks mighty fine alongside his 7th place finish in the Masters. The Irishman has four US Open top 10's to his name in just 7 starts, including two 5th place finishes.

5 points Adam Scott 3.25 Top 10 finish Stan James/ Boyle.... 3.30 + exchanges.

4 points Padraig Harrington 3.75 Top 10 finish Stan James/ Bet 365 .... 3.80 + exchanges.

Good Luck.
