Ned Brown is a long-time contributor for Rotoworld Golf.  He’s had documented success in Yahoo!’s game for years.  Even if you’re confident in your selections for that game, give his insight a read. 

 

Group A

 

Ryan Moore--- He played well in the fall portion of the new wraparound schedule and that has continued into the new year with a T10 at the TOC and a T6 a couple of weeks ago at the WMPO. He has made the cut six times in seven starts here and his best result was a T4 in '11.

 

Matt Kuchar--- He is playing great right now, but he never has had a top ten at the NTO. I started to look to Charles Howell III as a replacement, due to his success at Riviera, but I saw that he has missed the cut here three of his last four starts. I'll try to protect Kuchar on the bench this week, however if Moore has a rocky start I won't hesitate to use him.

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Bubba Watson, Charles Howell III, Lee Westwood

 

 

Group B

 

Dustin Johnson--- He started out the season with a T6 at the HTOC and he put a great final round charge on last week to finish in a tie for second place. He has been in the top 10 at the NTO three of his last five stops here ( T10 in '09, T3 in '10 and T4 in '12), but be warned the other two starts he missed the cut.

 

Webb Simpson-- Played well in the fall, with a win at in Las Vegas, and that has carried over into the new year with a T3 at the HTOC and a tenth place a couple of weeks ago at the WMPO. His two previous starts at the NTO were a T15 in '10 and a T6 last year.

 

Hunter Mahan-- He knocked some rust of the off-season at the Farmers and then earned a T4 at the WMPO and a sixth place last week at the AT&T Pebble Beach. His record at the NTO is somewhat mixed, but last year he played well on route to a T8 finish.

 

Graham DeLaet-- Group B is really an embarrassment of riches this week. Bill Haas, who is a horse for the course, or Jordan Spieth, who is a very hot player, are great picks. I'm going with Graham DeLaet, who like Spieth, is a very hot player right now with T2 finishes at the FIO and the WMPO. The second place at Phoenix really impressed me, because his record at the WMPO was so poor that I thought that he could be faded, but he proved me wrong.

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Bill Haas, Jordan Spieth, Keegan Bradley, Justin Rose

 

 

Group C

 

Jimmy Walker-- He almost blew that six-stroke advantage last week at the AT&T, however he hung on for his third victory of the season. This is his favorite course, and I don't see how you can fade him, but I'll be interested to see if Sunday's round took a little something out of him.

 

Charl Schwartzel-- It's a real coin toss in here between Harris English and Schwartzel. English won at the Mayakoba and that play has carried over into the new season. Schwartzel also played well in the off-season with victories at the China Masters and the Alfred Dunhill Championship. I'm going with Schwartzel mainly because he grew up playing on the African Kikuyu grass that is found at Riviera and that he finished in a tie for third place last year, which was his first start at the NTO.

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Harris English, Pat Perez, Kevin Na
