Phil Mickelson-- It was tempting to not use Mickelson this week after his missed cut at Bay Hill, but his recent record here of a win in '11 and a T4 last year is just too strong to ignore.


Rory McIlroy-- He finally looked like he broke his mini-slump last time out when he tied for eighth place at Doral and his fall to the number two spot in the OWGR should motivate him this week.




Chris Kirk, Charles Howell III, Geoff Ogilvy





Steve Stricker-- His reduced schedule this year seems to agree with him because his worst finish this year is a T5, which was at the WGC-Accenture Match Play. He looked great in his second place finish at Doral, so I can't think of a reason not to start him this week.


Hunter Mahan-- He was near the top of the leaderboard last week until a final round of 75 dropped him into a tie for 21st place. His recent record in Houston is pretty strong with three top 10s in his last four starts, including a championship last year.


Keegan Bradley-- He looked good at Bay Hill, where he tied for third place, and he had success at the SHO last year with a T4 result.


Jimmy Walker-- He hasn't had a lot off success in the SHO, but he is playing so well right now that I think he is worth a shot this week.




Dustin Johnson, Cameron Tringale, Graham DeLaet, Louis Oostheizen





Henrik Stenson-- He looked pretty good last week at Bay Hill, where he tied for eighth place, and he has a good record at the SHO, with a T3 in '09 and a T21 last year.


Lee Westwood-- I think this spot is a toss-up between Westwood and Jordan Spieth. Westwood should make the cut this week, but Spieth just earned a Special Temporary Membership on the TOUR after his T2 in Puerto Rico and his T7 in Tampa. I'm penciling Westwood for right now, but I might switch to Spieth on Wednesday evening.




Brian Struart, Bryce Molder, Harris English, Ryan Palmer
