Bubba tips Keegan, Keegan tips Bubba at the Open Championship

Two of the four reigning major champions have tipped each other to end the streak of 15 consecutive different major winners.

Masters champion Bubba Watson began the American lovefest by suggesting PGA champion Keegan Bradley will win the Open Championship at Royal Lytham and St. Annes.

"We're going to change that (streak) this week," Watson said Monday with a laugh. "Keegan Bradley, he's going to win."

Responding in kind on Wednesday, Bradley said he likes Watson to win his second major of the year.

"I'll pick Bubba to win this week, how about that?" Bradley said, according to Reuters.

Dating back to Padraig Harrington's 2008 PGA Championship win - his second major in a row - 15 different players have won the last 15 majors played.
