There is something to be said when it comes to the PGA Majors. The hype, the glamour and the coverage is taken up a notch. However in my opinion The Open seems to be the granddaddy of them all. The coverage is more intense as well as what would seem the history as well.

So if you could win either The Open or The U.S. Open which would it be?

For me I would go with The Open!

I would have to say The Open also and I hope Tom Watson wins again.

There's something very special about "The Open". Especially when it's played at St. Andrews!
For my money, the Majors go: Open, Masters, US Open and PGA Championship...with the PGA Championship being interesting, but I'm not glued to the TV like the other three.

I know all the history and everything. But I'd rather win the U.S. Open since i have watched it more over the years. I'd rank the Majors in the order they actually go. Masters, U.S. Open, The Open and when did it stop being referred to as The British Open? And PGA Championship. But i almost would rank the Players the quote unquote 5th major ahead of PGA.
