Missing the championship at the PGA Championship, Zalatoris continued to look sadly at the U.S. trophy. Open slipped out of hand.

Max Homa will be a favorite following his 61-stroke run at LACC's North Course en route to the 2013 Pac-12 individual title. There are also several golfers who won the 2017 Walker Cup at the LACC, including Zalatoris, who after three major runner-ups broke out to take the No.

The favorite will be Tiger Woods, who won The Open in 2006 at Hoylake with a textbook-grade performance, but that feat happening again seems highly unlikely. A better choice would be Morikawa, one of the most comprehensive golfers with a distinct playing style, which would be a potential name for the world's oldest professional golf tournament championship.

It's been three decades since the US team's last Ryder Cup win each time they toured Europe, but with the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club still a mystery, perhaps the owner of the This year's Ryder Cup will be more unpredictable than ever. Unlike the previous squad - consisting of names that have fought for many years and tried to win glory for the country (but all failed), this year's US squad will be completely new elements, with youth, confidence and bravery. At the Presidents Cup, the members of the US team showed their closeness, cohesion and solidarity for a common goal - defeating the opponent.

European Team

After the turbulent LIV Golf effect last season, the home team of the 2023 Ryder Cup will still launch a squad led by the main names Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Viktor Hovland and Matt Fitzpatrick. Shane Lowry, Tommy Fleetwood and Tyrrell Hatton could also be on the team, and with potential rookies like Thomas Detry and Rasmus Hojgaard, do Europe really need names like Sergio Garcia at this point? Regarding the US team, the absence of Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka is a bigger blow.
