Matt Kuchar: He has cooled off a bit from his hot play starting last fall, but he stands out in this this thin field. He has made the cut in both of his recent starts here with his best finish being a T13 in '12.
Phil Mickelson: This is a new tournament for Mickelson, who felt he needed some extra work before the Masters. He looked good coming off of a back injury at Doral where he was T16.
Charles Howell III
Jim Furyk: He looked great at the WGC-Accenture Match Play and he was steady at the Valspar Championship where he was T20. Furyk played in his first Valero Texas Open last season and eagled the 72nd hole to finish T3.
Jordan Spieth: He has played quite a bit in 2014 and has been pretty consistent with six top 20s in eight starts. Spieth hasn't done much in two previous starts here, so he is more about playing the current form.
Jason Kokrak: He has been on fire the last couple of weeks on the TOUR with a T14 at the Valspar and a solo fourth place last week at the API. He missed the cut in his first start at the TVO in '12, but he rebounded last year with a tie for 15th place.
Zach Johnson: He slowed down from his torrid start to the year and I've used up half my starts with him. However, he is a two-time winner of this event and should do well this week in this field.
Fredrik Jacobson, Ernie Els, Martin Laird
Jimmy Walker: He has won three events already in the wrap-around season and would love to win his hometown event. His best finish here is a third place in '10, but he is playing at a higher level this year than any time before in his career.
Charley Hoffman: Group C is absolutely loaded this week and you could pick among a dozen players and make a real good argument they will win this week. Hoffman stood out to me because of his record at Oak Course at TPC San Antonio of two T13s ('10, '12) plus a T2 in '11 and a T3 last year.
Kevin Na, Pat Perez, Brendan Steele, K.J. Choi

A big week last week with Matt Every and Keegan Bradley in B and GMAC firing in C. Imagine if I be smarted enuff to have replaced Woods with Adam Scott? D’oh!
Matt Kuchar – With a thin Group A, there is no reason NOT to play the chalk this week.
Phil Mickelson – As I mentioned in my preview, he’s not coming here to waste his time.
Jordan Spieth: No. 1 in the preview, first name on the team sheet in group B. #SpiethBoner
Jim Furyk: Adding him this week gives me the confidence to stretch on picks three and four because Furyk is so solid on tough courses.
Jason Kokrak: I’ll gladly ride a guy who has been on fire for two weeks! He played his final three rounds here last year at par or better.
Billy Horschel: The Man with His Own Column will be given another chance this week. I like this spot because of the three players in front of him so if he struggles, I’m covered.
Ryan Palmer: The Texan is coming off his second T2 finish in four events. #heatcheck
Charley Hoffman: I could argue for about 10 guys in this place but I liked how Hoffman knocked the rust off at Valspar. His track record here is first class as well.
