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

 

Luke Donald-- He played well in the off-season events and he successfully defended his Phoenix Open title. He has had a slow start to 2014, but he looked good in his T8 at the Honda Classic and his T25 at Doral wasn't that bad after a second round of 82 dropped him way off the pace. His recent record at the Valspar is excellent with a T6 in '10, a championship in "12 and a T4 last year.

 

Matt Kuchar-- He has been one of the most consistent golfers in the world with top 10s in seven of his last nine worldwide events. Kuchar has played well recently at the Copperhead Course, with a T10 in '12 and a T14 last year.

 

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Gary Woodland, Brandt Snedeker

 

 

Group B

 

Jason Dufner-- He went into a mini-slump after his T5 at the TOC, but recently he has been finding his form again with a T9 at the WGC-Accenture Match Play and a T9 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. He has made his last five cuts at the Valspar, with his best finish being a T10 in '12.

 

Jordan Spieth-- The young guns on the TOUR are doing quite well this season. Spieth is the youngest and has already racked up three top five results in seven starts this season. He had a bit of a rough time last week at Doral, but I figure he will rebound on a course that he tied for seventh place last year.

 

Kevin Streelman -- A surprise T3 at the TOC, however since then he has four lackluster results. His form was almost the same in his last two visits to the Valspar and he came away with a T10 in '12 and a championship last year. A true horse-for-course.

 

Jim Furyk--It's tempting to go with Graeme DeLaet, but I'm going to opt for a older vet in Jim Furyk. I thought Furyk played very well at the WGC-Accenture Match Play and his recent record at the Valspar is solid, with a championship in '10, a T2 in '12 and a T7 last year.

 

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Graham DeLaet, Webb Simpson, Justin Rose, Bryce Molder

 

 

Group C

 

Harris English-- His hot play from the fall has continue into the new year with Top 10s in four of his last six TOUR events. He played well in last year's Valspar with a T7 result.

 

Pat Perez-- He got off to a hot start this season with four top 11s in six starts. Perez has taken some time off since the NTO and he returns to a course that he tied for seventh place at last year.

 

 

SUPER SUBS

 

K.J. Choi, Russell Knox, Paul Casey, Brooks Koepka
