Checking 2005 Major Predictions
Well, the final major of 2005 is in the books. Let’s check my predictions made in January:
“Major winners: Master’s – Mickelson; US Open – Singh; British Open – Woods; PGA – Singh. That’s right, all big names. No darkhorses this year.”
3 out of 4 were not dark horses. Only Michael Campbell, US Open Champ, came out of the pack. Significantly, he has Polynesian ancestry in common with Vijay. Genetically speaking, that’s as close as a guy could come to getting that prediction right–without actually getting it right, that is.
Mickelson came in 10th at the Master’s, but won the PGA. Not bad. And Tiger at the British, well, I don’t want to brag, but…
So, by my count, that’s…well, who’s counting? All I know is that it’s not often for a commentator to revisit their pre-season picks. How’d everyone else do?

If someone just picked Tiger for the lot, they'd of done better.
There is not "no" connection, however, as Maori and Fijian are linguistically related.
What is that last link supposed to link to.... no predictions there????
