In this week’s golf report for Crain’s Chicago Business, I write that with an injured Tiger Woods, who already was way off his game, sitting out next week’s U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club, the door is wide open for somebody to finally walk off with the big prize.

In this week’s Inside the Leather video, Steve Olken and I pick our favorites to win next week’s U.S. Open at Congressional. I like a player who is collecting a bunch of top 10 finishes. No, it isn’t Luke Donald.
