Ned said, “…


Group A


Sergio Garcia-- I've used up my starts on Phil and Tiger, but if I have only one start left on either I would wait until next week in Atlanta. Garcia finally woke up last time out with a T4 finish at the Deutsche Bank and I'm hoping that momentum carries over.


Jason Dufner-- The PGA Champion had an understandable let down after his first major title, however he looked good last time out in his T9 result at the Deutsche Bank.




Phil Mickelson, Tiger WoodsChris Kirk


Group B


Steve Stricker-- Group B is by far the hardest group this week due to the number of quality golfers. Stricker looked great last time out in his second place finish in Boston and he will be, with Luke Donald, local favorites to win this week.


Matt Kuchar-- The big question this week is how everyone will play a new course. Kuchar looked great in his T4 finish at the Deutsche Bank and, even though this is my last start with Kuchar, I think he is a better fit here than in Atlanta.


Justin Rose-- He has played very well in the Playoffs with at T2 at The Barclays and a T12 at the Deutsche Bank. Rose has played well in Chicago in the past and I think this course might fit his eye.


Graham DeLaet-- For months, I've had Luke Donald penciled in for a spot this week, but his form just isn't good enough to give him the nod. Jim Furyk does have the form, but being left off the Presidents Cup has to be a heavy blow for him. Instead, I'm going with one of the hottest golfers in here by using Graham DeLaet. He came into the Playoffs in off-form, but then found something to finish T2 at The Barclays and in third place at the Deutsche Bank.




Jim Furyk, Luke Donald, Hunter Mahan, Dustin Johnson


Group C


Henrik Stenson-- I faded Stenson last time out and paid the price because almost everyone in the Top 100 had him. It's a bit much for him to win two weeks in-a-row, but overall he has played the best over the last six weeks on the TOUR.


Adam Scott-- I thought about saving my last start for Scott for the TOUR Championship, however his recent record in Atlanta is so-so. He did look average last time out, but he opened the Playoffs with a championship at The Barclays.
