Ned said, “…


Group A


Tiger Woods-- He has four wins on the season and he is a seven-time champion at Firestone. I have only two starts left with him this season, but his record is so strong here that I think he is a must-use this week.


Brandt Snedeker—He is back to the top form he was at to start the season, however Tiger Woods record is so outstanding at Firestone that I probably will play Tiger all four days.




Phil Mickelson, Bill Haas, Bubba Watson


Group B


Steve Stricker-- He has finished in the top 10 in his last two starts on the TOUR and his recent record at Firestone has been very good, with top 10s in three of his last four starts (T6 in '09, T9  in '10 and T2 last year).


Keegan Bradley-- I thought Bradley looked good in his T15 finish at the British Open and his brief history here is very strong with a T15 in '11 and a championship last year.


Jim Furyk-- Since this is a no-cut event, I'm going to save starts on Matt Kuchar (one left) and Justin Rose (two left). Instead, I'm going to use Jim Furyk, who looked good last week in his T9 at the Canadian Open. His record at Firestone in very good with eight top 10s in 13 career starts including a T2 last year.


Zach Johnson-- It was an easy call that Johnson would do well at the John Deere Classic, but he then surprised me with his T6 at the British Open. His record at the WGC-Bridgestone is solid with two top 10s in nine starts.




Matt Kuchar, Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson



Group C


Adam Scott-- I'm getting low on starts with Adam Scott (three left), but he looked great at the British Open and he won a championship here just two years ago.


Henrik Stenson-- It's real tempting to take Lee Westwood here, however Stenson has been on fire, with a T3 at the Scottish Open and a second place at the British Open.




Lee Westwood, Charl Schwartzel, Hideki Matsuyama
