Rank: Who will fare best at Oakmont?



Oakmont Country Club
Tickets won't be easy to come by this week at Oakmont, host of this year's U.S. Open, but finding a way in will be a walk in the park compared to the challenge faced by players searching for birdies.

Rarely a haven of low scores wherever it's held, the U.S. Open could be especially cruel to participants this week. Geoff Ogilvy won last year's event at Winged Foot with a score of 5-over, but there are no guarantees anyone will clear even that low hurdle this weekend.

Below you'll find the top 18 players in the current World Golf Rankings. In theory, these guys are the best equipped to handle the challenge ahead, but who do you think has the best shot at surviving Oakmont?

You must rank at least five golfers to cast your ballot.
