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

 

Adam Scott-- He took a long break after playing in Hawaii and returned to play last week at the Honda Classic, where he finished T12, which was his worst showing since a T14 at the TOUR Championship. In other words, Scott is a top flight elite player that should be on your very short list each week. He does have a good record at Doral, but the total rebuild of Doral means that past records won't get as much weight as recent form.

 

Matt Kuchar-- Outside of a missed cut at the NTO, Kuchar has played well since last fall with top 10s in seven of his last eight starts. He does have a solid career record at Doral of top 10s in three of four starts. I do reserve the right to play Tiger Woods in this spot, but as of right now Tiger is still a question mark to play this week.

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson

 

 

Group B

 

Rory McIlroy-- Played great last week until the closing holes and was able to get in a playoff with a great approach to the final hole. Despite the P2 finish I don't see him fading on a course that he has finished in the top 10 his last three starts (T10 in '11, third in '12 and T8 last year.)

 

Dustin Johnson-- He hurt many brackets at the WGC-Match Play when he bowed out in the first round, but before that he was very hot with a T6 at the TOC, a T2 at the AT&T Pebble Beach and a T2 at the NTO. His best finish at Doral came in "11 when he finished in second place.

 

Jordan Spieth-- Normally, I would shy away from using first time players at Doral, but he has been performing well all season on courses that are new to him and the veterans won't have an edge in knowledge after the total rebuilding of Doral.

 

Keegan Bradley-- Usually, I would use Justin Rose in this spot, but he is coming off of a shoulder injury, so instead I'll go with Keegan Bradley. He looked good at the Honda, where he tied for 12th place, and he has a very good record at Doral of a T8 in '12 and a seventh place last year.

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Jason Day, Justin Rose, Webb Simpson, Graham DeLaet

 

 

Group C

 

Sergio Garcia -- He’s been playing well since last year with tops 10s in six of his last seven worldwide starts. His record at Doral is solid with his most recent top ten coming last year when he tied for third place.

 

Graeme McDowell-- Here is the tricky pick of the week. You can make arguments for McDowell, Schwartzel, Jimmy Walker or Harris English and they are all good picks. I was impressed with McDowell at the WGC-Match Play, where he tied for fifth place, and a lot of the players that went deep at the Match Play didn't do that well at the Honda.

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Charl Schwartzel, Harris English, Jimmy Walker
