Bubba Watson-- Last time out he tied for 50th place at the Masters, but he really didn't play all that bad. His recent history at the Zurich Classic is good, with at T18 last year and a championship in '11.


Jason Dufner-- It's been a dull season for Dufner, but he has a great record at the Zurich with a T9 in '09, a T7 in '10, a T3 in '11 and a championship last year.




Charles Howell III, Brendon de Jonge, Boo Weekley




Justin Rose-- He came into the Masters with three consecutive top 10s, so his T25 at the Masters was a bit of a disappointment. His recent record in New Orleans is a bit spotty, but he did manage a T10 here last year.


Keegan Bradley—He also was very hot going into the Masters, with four consecutive top 10s, but he disappointed with a T50 result. He doesn't have a long history at the Zurich, so playing him this week is about his hot streak before the Masters.


Charley Hoffman-- He was leading last week at the RBC Heritage going into the final round, but his red hot putter cooled down and he slipped into a T6 result. Still, it was the second consecutive top 10 finish, so playing him this week is about trying to ride the hot hand.


Nick Watney-- I think this spot is a tossup between Ernie Els and Nick Watney. I'm going right now with Watney because of his T13 at the Masters and that he is a past champion ('07) of the Zurich Classic.




Ernie Els, K.J. Choi, Cameron Tringale, David Toms, Jimmy Walker





Billy Horschel-- He had a rough two final holes at the RBC Heritage, but he still finished tied for ninth place, which gives him three consecutive top 10 finishes. His history here is fair, so he is all about playing the hot golfer.


Rickie Fowler-- Fowler was playing well going into the Masters, but he had a tough couple of rounds at Augusta which resulted in a T38 finish. Fowler has made both of his cuts in New Orleans and he did tie for tenth place last year.




Thorbjorn Olesen, Jeff Overton, Marcel Siem, Jordan Spieth
