WGC-BI

After killing it without the winner at The Open, I gave it ALL back last week at the RBC. I went for the kill with Dustin Johnson when the proper play was just riding Jim Furyk. DJ, as we know, MC and WD for this week at WGC-BI so I’m glad I knocked him out for a week! Charley Hoffman and Chad Campbell also MC so the $.89 that Patrick Rodgers claimed stuck me with a mulligan. I guess averaging it out of two weeks isn’t bad but whatever. The other bad news was all the other guys had Furyk last week so it was like I didn’t even play.

 

That’s better.

Not really.

 

 

Group 1: Adam Scott

Group 2: Keegan Bradley

Group 3: Ryan Moore

Group 4: Tim Clark

 

 

ANALYSIS:  I’ve gone the “Jim Furyk” route this week with the steadiest player on TOUR as I’m completely shell shocked from last week. Keegan Bradley should be a no-brainer in Group 2 given his track record here over the last three years. It came down to Moore or Haas for me in Group 3 so I went with the better putter who’s coming off T5, T7 and T12 in his last three. After his closing 30 coming home last Sunday, I’ll gladly run Clark out there in a skinny Group 4. It’s too bad Woods doesn’t have ANY form entering this tournament or he would be the simple choice in Group 1.

 

 

 

Rob Bolton ($15,641,953; Rank: 4,093)


@RobBoltonGolf

 

Group 1: Adam Scott

Group 2: Jim Furyk

Group 3: Ryan Moore

Group 4: Angel Cabrera

 

ANALYSIS: Nothing like sitting on 18 tee on Sunday knowing that no matter what happens that you have guaranteed first and second place. Rob had Clark and Furyk last week and his over $1.7 million gave him a much-needed bump up the standings. This week, we share picks Nos. 1 and 3 and EVERYONE LOVES FURYK. I gave him his props earlier in this column, enough is enough.

 

 

Ryan O’ Sullivan ($17,074,680; Rank: 1,628)


@RyanGolfBlogger

 

Group 1: Adam Scott

Group 2: Jim Furyk

Group 3: Webb Simpson

Group 4: Angel Cabrera

 

ANALYSIS: Yep, having Furyk last week pushes him right up my backside and he’s trotting him out there again this week.  We both have Scott in Group 1 but he’s pulling out Simpson in Group 3. That’s interesting because Simpson has struggled just about everywhere this spring and summer. Another tour of duty for old man Cabrera in Group 4 makes for just one match between us!

 

 

Ned Brown ($18,465,037; Rank: 544)


@Esoxgolf

 

Group 1: Adam Scott

Group 2: Jim Furyk

Group 3: Ryan Moore

Group 4: Angel Cabrera

 

 

ANALYSIS: Ned and I match pick Nos. 1 and 3 and he matches Ryan on 1, 2 and 4. Lots of love again for Furyk this week but I’m hoping for a Keegan victory to get back in front.
