Prediction: Barnes V. Hunter II
As it is fun to make predictions, how about a rematch of the 2002 US Amateur final between Barnes and Mahan? As we know, Barnes struggle mightily during his first 6 or so years as a pro while Mahan made the 2008 Presidents Cup and 2009 Ryder Cup teams. The irony is, Barnes won that US Amateur final, 2 and 1, having dispatched Bill Haas in the semifinals. There were three titans of amateur golf that year, Barnes, Mahan and Haas, and all three made the semis of the Amateur. Barnes had also qualified for the 2002 US Open at Bethpage as an amateur, providing even more circularity as we slop through the 2009 Open.
