Ned said, “…


Group A


Brandt Snedeker—He is playing well right now and I thought he looked great in his T11 finish at the British Open. He did play the Glen Abbey back in '09 and finished in a tie for fifth place.


Graeme McDowell-- It would be safer to pick Bubba Watson or Chris Kirk in this spot, but McDowell has three worldwide wins this season with the last coming a couple of weeks ago at the Open de France.




Bubba Watson, Chris Kirk, Chez Reavie


Group B


Matt Kuchar-- I'm getting very low on starts with Kuchar, but this field is field isn't that strong and he is playing some of his best golf of the season right now.


Hunter Mahan-- He was in the hunt for his first major title last week, but a final round of six bogeys and an eagle slid him down into a tie for ninth place. Mahan's best finish at Glen Abbey is a T4 in '04.


Ernie Els-- In his last eight worldwide starts he has racked up four top six finishes, and I thought he look good at the British Open in his T26 finish. He has played the Glen Abbey course twice with a T20 in '96 being his best result.


Dustin Johnson-- It's very tempting to go with Graham Delaet or Davis Hearn in this space, but Canadian players have a ton of pressure put on them to win the Canadian national title and the results haven't been good. Instead, I'm going with Dustin Johnson who looked great in the first couple of days of the British Open.




Graham DeLaet, David Hearn, Luke Donald, Daniel Summerhays


Group C


Charl Schwartzel--He made headlines for snapping a thrown club in two at The Open, but overall he has played well over the last couple of months with four top 15 finishes in five starts. He has played in two prior Canadian Opens however this is his first start at Glen Abbey.


Hideki Matsuyama-- He got hit last week in the third round with a penalty for slow play. I was impressed with the way he handled it and the way he played the rest of the tournament. This is his first time at the Canadian Open so he is all about playing the hot player.
