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

  • Article by: DOUG FERGUSON , AP Golf Writer
  • Last update: July 12, 2013 - 11:05 PM

At his best in 2013: Won the Match Play Championship and the Memorial.

At his worst in 2013: Has finished out of the top 20 eight times this year.

British Open moment: Catching the bad end of the draw and opening with an 81 at Royal Birkdale in 2008.

Pot bunker mentality: He has finished under par only twice in the eight times he has played the British Open. He has a very reliable swing and a solid putting stroke, and he doesn't get too rattled.

PHIL MICKELSON

Age: 43.

Country: United States.

World ranking: 8.

Worldwide wins: 43.

Majors: Masters (2004, 2006, 2010), PGA Championship (2005).

At his best in 2013: Came within a fraction of an inch of a 59 in the Phoenix Open.

At his worst in 2013: Couldn't hit the 13th green at Merion with a wedge.

British Open moment: Making a terrific charge at Royal St. George's before losing momentum by missing a 3-foot putt. He tied for second.

Pot bunker mentality: Mickelson's record suggests he can't play links golf, though he came awfully close at Royal Troon in 2004 and Royal St. George's in 2011. He can be loose off the tee, and with Muirfield's tall grass off the fairway, this wouldn't be a good place for that. Hard to predict how he will be after another debilitating U.S. Open loss at Merion last month.

JASON DAY

Age: 25.

Country: Australia.

World ranking: 18.
