Bubba Watson – He is on fire right now with a T2 at the NTO, a championship at the WMPO and a T2 at Doral. He has had some success at the API with two top 10s in eight starts, including T4 just two years ago.
Patrick Reed – He missed the cut in his only start at Bay Hill, but he's super-hot right now and his mindset is to prove to everyone that he is a top-5 player.
Henrik Stenson, Rickie Fowler
Justin Rose – The shoulder injury looks to be healed and Rose looked great last week in his T8 finish at the Valspar. Recently, Rose has played very well at the API with a T3 finish in ‘11 and a solo second place last year.
Zach Johnson – Cooling off from his torrid start to the season, Johnson is playing well with a T16 at the WGC-Cadillac. He has three top 10s in 10 career starts at Bay Hill with the most recent being a third place in '09.
Hunter Mahan – He’s played well recently with top 10s in four of his last five events. He has only one top 10 in ten starts at Bay Hill, however he is almost a lock to play into the weekend and will most likely finish in the top 25.
Keegan Bradley – He was playing decently before the WGC-Cadillac, but he had an off week and finished T50. I'm looking for him to rebound on a course that he T3last year.
Ian Poulter, Matt Every, Chris Kirk
Graeme McDowell – It's a real gift to have McDowell in Group C because he has played well this year, including three top 10s in his four starts. He has two top 2s in six career starts at The API with the most recent being a solo second place in '12.
Kevin Na – I tend to shy away from using Na in fantasy because he has burnt me more than once. However, he looked great last week in his second place at the Valspar and his recent record at the API is very good with at T2 in '10 and a T4 in '12.
Harris English, Will MacKenzie, John Senden, Jamie Donaldson
