Continued: BRITISH OPEN '13: Capsules of 20 players expected to contend at Muirfield

  • Article by: DOUG FERGUSON , AP Golf Writer

British Open moment: Tying the major championship record with a 63 in the opening round at St. Andrews in 2010.

Pot bunker mentality: There is scant evidence that McIlroy will contend at the Open except that he is Rory McIlroy, and he is very good. He has a history of going into mini-slumps, but this is bordering on something more. Changed all his equipment at the start of the year, and is in the process of changing management again. Time is running out for him to join Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus as the only players in the last 50 years to win a major in three successive seasons.

LUKE DONALD

Age: 35.

Country: England.

World ranking: 9.

Worldwide wins: 12.

Majors: None.

At his best in 2013: Starting the final round of the U.S. Open two shots behind.

At his worst in 2013: Missing the cut at Wentworth going for a third straight BMW PGA Championship title.

British Open moment: Closing with a 67 at Turnberry and a 69 at Lytham for his only top-fives.

Pot bunker mentality: The first time since 2010 that he hasn't won before the British Open. His driving has held him up, and his short game is still better than most, but not at the level that took him to No. 1. Played seven straight majors at No. 1 in the world. Now close to falling out of the top 10.

MATT KUCHAR

Age: 35.

Country: United States.

World ranking: 5.

Worldwide wins: 6.

Majors: None.
