We all love a major
What did you make of Brooks Koepka's victory at last month's US Open? To finish four ahead of your nearest competitor in any tournament takes some doing, but managing it in a major, when all of the world's best are competing, is a magnificent feat. According to June's poll, the US Open (4.83%) is your third favourite major, albeit some way behind The Masters (41.47%) and the Open Championship (52.73%) in the voting.
The latter of these takes place this month at Royal Birkdale. Who takes home the coveted Claret Jug is anyone's guess, but with so many players finding form just at the right time it's going to be a fantastic four days. We've put a few picks up on this month's poll so make sure you click on the link below, visit our website and cast your vote as to who you think will be Open champion.
