Tiger Woods- One of the toughest questions this week is do you try and save a start on him? Seeing that he already a three-time winner this season, I think the way to go is to put him on the roster and then try to keep him on the bench.


Phil Mickelson-- He played well last week and led the tournament until a bogey at the 71st hole. His hot hand should carry over this week and I'll try to use him the entire tournament, unless it's clear that Woods is going to finish in the top 3.




Sergio Garcia, Brandt Snedeker, Tim Clark





Luke Donald-- After a bit of a slow start to the season, he is playing better of late with a T4 at Tampa and a T3 at the RBC Heritage. He has played well in the last couple of PLAYERS with a T4 in '11 and a sixth place last year.


Steve Stricker-- He is playing in only a handful of events this season, but in the five events he has played so far he has three top 5 finishes.


Bo Van Pelt-- Van Pelt has played well recently and he notched his first top 10 of the year last week at the Wells Fargo when he tied for sixth place. His recent record at THE PLAYERS is pretty good with a T4 in '10 and a T7 last year.


Jim Furyk-- Furyk recorded a T7 in Tampa and T3 at the VTO, then he added a T25 at the Masters. His T42 at the Heritage was a bit of a disappointment, but he had played a pretty heavy schedule going into the tournament, so I'm not going to give that showing much weight.




Matt Kuchar, Nick Watney, Peter Hanson, Zach Johnson, David Toms





Adam Scott-- He earned his first Major last time out and he hasn't played since then. Scott is a past champion at THE PLAYERS and I'm assuming that his form is somewhat like it was at Augusta.


Henrik Stenson-- I've used quite a few starts on Lee Westwood and Charl Schwartzel so I'm going to use Henrik Stenson instead. He has a very nice record of three top 10s in seven career starts at THE PLAYERS including a championship in '09.




Lee Westwood, Charl Schwartzel, Ian Poulter, Jason Day
