Rory McIlroy-- He actually didn't play that bad at the Masters and I'm looking for him to rebound on a course that he had a T2 on last year and a championship in '10.


Phil Mickelson--I think this spot is a real coin flip between Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson. I’m going with Mickelson because he has six top 10s here in only nine starts.




Bubba Watson, Sergio Garcia, Bill Haas




Webb Simpson-- Simpson broke out of his mini-slump last time out with a P2 finish at the RBC Heritage. He also play well in last year's Quail Hollow with a fourth place result.


Nick Watney-- Watney followed up his T13 at the Masters with a T15 last week in New Orleans. He has six top 25s in eight career starts at Quail Hollow with his first top 10 coming last year when he finished in eighth place.


Dustin Johnson-- He doesn't have the strongest history at Quail Hollow, but he has been playing well recently with a T12 at Doral, a T4 at the SHO and a T13 at the Masters. *** ALERT: DJ withdrew on Tuesday with an "irrirated left wrist," according to PGA TOUR Media on Twitter. ***


Jimmy Walker-- This is a tossup between Lucas Glover and Jimmy Walker. Both are playing well, but Glover has a better history at Quail Hollow. The problem is that Glover is expecting the birth of his daughter any day now. Those that don't mind the risk of a possible sudden withdrawal might want to go with Glover, but I'm taking the safer pick of Walker.




Lucas Glover, Zach Johnson, John Senden, Cameron Tringale





Lee Westwood-- Westwood has played well recently with a T10 at the SHO and a T8 at the Masters. He did play in last year's WFC and finished in a tie for fifth place.


Rickie Fowler-- There are a half a dozen guys that could be picked here. I'm going with Fowler because he has two top 6s in three starts at Quail Hollow including a championship last year.




D.A. Points, Henrik Stenson, Ian Poulter, Angel Cabrera
