Ned said, “…


Group A


Tiger Woods-- He disappointed at the PGA, but before that he crushed the field at Firestone for his fifth championship on the season. I have only one start left on him, so I'm going to try to keep him on the bench.


Phil Mickelson--He is a member at Liberty National and I felt, in '09 that he was a bit embarrassed by his T52 finish and that he would do well the next time The Barclays visited.  If you want to take more risk down, I thought Rory McIlroy played well at the PGA Championship and he is a good choice for the second spot in Group A.

Group B


Jim Furyk-- He is one of the hottest players on the TOUR right now with three consecutive top 10s, including a second place at the PGA Championship. Furyk did play at Liberty National in '09 and he finished in a tie for 15th place.


Webb Simpson-- I'm low on starts on Matt Kuchar (1) and Justin Rose (2), so I'm going to go with Webb Simpson instead. I think right now Simpson is playing better and the last time The Barclays was at Liberty National he finished in solo eighth place.


Dustin Johnson—He made news last week about his engagement to the Great One's daughter and I can see him making more news this week at The Barclays. Johnson has a streak of three consecutive top 10s at The Barclays, including a championship in '11, and he finished with a T15 in '09 when The Barclays was last here.


Keegan Bradley-- I have enough starts on Bradley (3) that I'm not worried about using him this week. He has been on a roll with three top 10s in his last four starts including a T2 at the WGC-Bridgestone. If you want to save a start on Bradley, Ernie Els has a good record at Liberty National (T2 in '09) and he got some needed work last week in his T20 finish at the Wyndham Championship.



Matt Kuchar, Justin Rose, Ernie Els, Hunter Mahan, Luke Donald


Group C


Henrik Stenson-- Right now he is playing some of the best golf of his career. He has racked up four consecutive worldwide top 3 finishes, which includes two majors and a World Golf Championship event.


Adam Scott-- Group C is just loaded this week with hot golfers such as Jordon Spieth, Jason Day and Patrick Reed. I'm going to use the reliable Adam Scott in this spot, as he has two top 5s in his last three starts, but I can see where players will want to play one of the hot young guns to move further up in the rankings.
