Last Week: 485.5 points

Last Week Rank: 1,095
 

Jason Day ($32,200)
Rickie Fowler ($32,000)
Bill Haas ($13,200)
Zach Johnson ($11,400)
Kevin Na ($6,600)
Keegan Bradley ($3,800)
 

ANALYSIS:  Bradley is basically free at sub-$4K. He can rack up birdies and eagles on the par 5s and we have no cut line to worry about. ZJ and Day are both past champs here, so there is plenty of course experience here.

Group A

Rickie Fowler (2): Great combination of current form and course history (top 5 in his last trip to Conway Farms).


Jason Day (9): Talk about start mismanagement. I know Day has had a down year, but no way it's iptimal to still have nine starts remaining.


=SUPER SUBS =

Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy


Group B
Justin Rose (2): Back-to-back top 10s, let's keep riding this form into the finish line.


Hideki Matsuyama (2): Rattled off four straight top 15s not too long ago, but he's overshadowed now. Should get back in the mix this week.


Matt Kuchar (1): A steady Eddie. Going to trust Kuchar to keep his name near the top of the leaderboard all week.


Francesco Molinari (4): One of the most underrated talents due to lack of wins. Still, he's a steady tee-to-green talent that is still getting comfortable in the States. Already ran out of Spieth and Casey starts.


=SUPER SUBS=

Jordan Spieth, Paul Casey, Justin Thomas

 

Group C
Zach Johnson (6): Not a sexy name, but we're teeing it up in the Midwest. ZJ was born in Eastern Iowa, loves the Iowa Hawkeyes, and this is just a few hours from that whole scene. Played Conway Farms back in college and also won here back in 2013. Very comfortable.


Henrik Stenson (7): Back in action after getting two weeks of rest. Should love the fact that he can safely stow his driver for most of the round at Conway Farms.


=SUPER SUBS=

Brooks Koepka, Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm
