It's a packed leaderboard at the Open Championship, with big names all chasing the Claret Jug. So, who will walk away with the title? Well, we're glad you asked. Here's what we've got.

Bob Harig, ESPN.com senior golf writer: Tiger Woods. He's never come from behind to win a major, hasn't shot in the 60s for 13 straight weekend rounds in the majors. All of that changes Sunday.

Rick Reilly, ESPN.com columnist: Hunter Mahan. Finally, something good happens to Hunter Mahan -- besides being rich, handsome and the husband of a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.

Gene Wojciechowski, ESPN.com senior national columnist: Lee Westwood. Five players with wins in majors are within 5 shots of Westwood's lead. They'll all make runs at him, especially Woods, but I think Westwood will hang on for his first major victory.

Ian O'Connor, ESPNNewYork.com columnist: Tiger Woods. At some point in his career, he will win major No. 15, and he will actually come from behind on a Sunday to seize a Grand Slam event. Both will happen at Muirfield, where Tiger can keep his driver in storage. It's time for Tiger's five-year drought to end, and major-less Westwood is a vulnerable mark.

Michael Collins, ESPN.com senior golf analyst: Adam Scott. Guess who's got all the pressure on them? The guys with no majors and the guy on a five-year drought. Now guess who's got none? The guy who just won his first major. Scott wins.
