The Open Championship is in full swing, and it has been 48 years since an Englishman won the Open on home soil. There are 28 Englishmen in the field this tournament, with four being ranked in the Top 25, and the numbers are on their side to quench that drought. However, the British Open is as unpredictable as ever, and other players have been hotter this year. What do you think? 🏌

28 Englishmen on an English course. Someone is going to catch fire eating some home cooking this tournament. Tommy Fleetwood might be the most likely to do it. Fleetwood is from Southport, which iscoincidentally the same city that claims Royal Birkdale. Having his hometown supporting him may put him over the top.

Aside from Fleetwood, who finished fourth at the U.S. Open, Justin Rose has also had a decent year. The Englishman finished second at the Masters this year, and could easily get hot on English soil. It's been 25 years since an Englishman has won the Claret Jug. The drought ends this year.

The English have not been able to secure an Open Championship since 1992. There is no indication they will end that dry spell this tournament. People are looking to Tommy Fleetwood to lift the burden of the country, but he will have the hopes of an entire nation on his shoulders. That's a lot of pressure for a player who is playing in his hometown. He may not be mentally prepared for that pressure.

Golf is an unforgiving sport, and a lot of things have to break your way to have a dream ending. English golfers have a difficult course with the difficult weather with great players to contend with. There are too many factors working against them to end this curse.
