Ned said, “…


Group A


Phil Mickelson-- He was pretty quiet last week until the final round, where he almost came from behind to post a low score and watch the rest of the field struggle later in the day. I have only one start left with him, but he has posted top 10s in his last two starts here (T10 in '11 and T4 last year) and I would prefer to use him in the last event of the season with a weekend cut.


Rory McIlroy-- A lot of players will use Tiger Woods in this spot. I'm out of starts with Woods and I would be reluctant to use him anyway with his bad back acting up. McIlroy is the defending champion here and he is finally starting to show good form




Brandt Snedeker, Jason Dufner, Gary Woodland, Bubba Watson


Group B


Steve Stricker-- He played with a hamstring pull at the PGA Championship and still tied for 12th place. He has four top ten finishes at this event including a championship '09.


Jim Furyk- One of the hottest golfers on the TOUR right now with four consecutive top 10 finishes, including a T6 last week at The Barclays. He has a very good recent record at TPC of Boston with three top 10s (T7 in '08, T8 in '09 and sixth in '11) in his last five starts.


Webb Simpson—He’s playing well right now with three T15s in his last four starts and his recent record here is good with a championship in '11 and a T18 last year.


Keegan Bradley-- This is a tough call between Justin Rose and Keegan Bradley. Rose three-putt bogeyed the final hole at The Barclays to give the title to Adam Scott and I'm not sure if there will be a hangover from that. Keegan Bradley was a bit disappointing last week in his T33 at The Barclays, but this is an event that sorely wants to win and he will have the local crowd behind him.




Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson, Luke Donald, Zach Johnson



Group C


Adam Scott-- I blew it last week. I have two starts left with Scott, and in the final round I, thought that he was a shot too far back to use to win the tournament. He shot an amazing final round and then he got help from the dozen guys that were ahead of him going into the final round. Scott has a very good record at TPC of Boston with five top 10s in eight starts including a championship in '03.


Jason Day-- He has a very nice recent record at TPC of Boston of two top threes (T2 in '10 and T3 in '11) and he has six top 10s on this season including a T8 at the PGA Championship a few weeks ago.




Henrik Stenson, Jordan Spieth, Charl Schwartzel, Rickie Fowler
