Majors Value Meter: British Open Rankings

This article is part of our Majors Value Meter series.

Below are our 2014 British Open rankings. This list is geared toward winner-take-all leagues and leagues that reward the lowest aggregate score, but it can serve other leagues as well, no matter the nuances.

Note: Finished 3rd at the Open Championship in 2010 and notched six top-10s on the PGA Tour in 10 starts.

Note: Won both The Players Championship and the U.S. Open in convincing fashion, Kaymer is at the height of his powers and will look to add a third major since 2010.

Note: After a magical Sunday 66 to win his first Open Championship last year, Mickelson will defend his title but has yet to post a top-10 finish this season.

8. Jason Day
