That is clear by your prediction.
Hopefully one of the English guys can do well. Howell has had a great year so far and I think he is up to number 10 in the world so he is probably the best British hope, and I reckon Donald will be up there. He usually is for 3 rounds and then fades in the 4th, this time he might just go a bit better on the final day.
Golf majors are impossible to predict though, much harder than the tennis grand slams these days. There's always the obvious favourites like Woods, Mickelson and Singh, but then quite often someone just comes from nowhere like Ben "who the hell's he?" Curtis as a good example. Won the open a 3 or 4 years ago and never been heard of since. He was the only player to finish under par in that tournament if I remember correctly and there was another guy the following year whose name escapes me. I wouldn't be suprised if some nobody comes through again this year.

As for the poll, I'll go with Mickelson to make amends for his US Open final hole nightmare.

Edit: Hamilton was the other guy, name just came to me. Not sure which major he won but he was another nobody who won 2 or 3 years ago.
