Golfweek: U.S. Open: Tiger headlines staff predictions: Our staff of experts will be

It's tempting to say Phil Mickelson could be an underdog winner because he has been a runner-up at the U.S. Open five times and he hasn't shown much that would lead us to think his game is clicking (which is usually when he explodes for a resounding victory), but he's ranked too high for these criteria. I'll take Jim Furyk. The 2003 champion from West Chester, Pa., could have won when the last U.S. Open was played in Pennsylvania (Oakmont in '07); he was in the mix at Winged Foot in 2006 and last year too. I worry that he can't make meaningful putts anymore, and that quick-left miss with a hybrid on the 16th at Olympic Club in 2012 cost him a second major. But the crowds will be solidly behind Furyk, and he won't be awed by the spotlight Sunday. He wouldn't be considered a Hall of Famer before the start of this tournament, but a win would get him enshrined for sure.
