G’Lover has a great record at Torrey Pines. T9 in ‘10, T3 in ‘09, MDF in ‘08, T4 in ‘06. Good enough for me. I trust that Lucas has put in the work to get out to a good start.
He’s coming off a win. Most athletes tend to slump in their event following a win, but Vegas wants to make a splash on tour. Let’s get it, kid.
Kim is hot and healthy. T19 at HTOC and T13 at the Sony Open. He hasn’t played this event since 2008 where he finished T67. He also missed the cut in 2007.
other Nike athletes to choose from :: Stephen Ames, Stewart Cink, Carl Pettersson, Kevin Kisner, Joseph Bramlett, Jamie Lovemark
recent finishes – T9 at HTOC, t1 Shark Shootout, t16 at Chevron, t2 at ADT Skills, t1 at Wendy’s 3-Tour
The kid is sick. However, he missed the cut here last year after a T19 in ‘09 and a T37 in ‘08.
recent finishes – T27 at Sony Open, T13 at Bob Hope
In his last 9 rounds, he’s fired 66 or better in 4 of those rounds. I just like the way he’s trending and they’re two solid finishes. T33 here last year, T19 in ‘08,
recent finishes – T5 at Bob Hope, T20 at Sony Open
Great start to the year for Na thus far, but hasn’t played here in ‘10 or ‘09. He also had a MC in ‘08, ‘07 and ‘06.
recent finishes – T2 at Bob Hope, 8th at HTOC
The stars are aligned for Mr. Haas. Two big Top 10’s, a taste of revenge and a good record at Torrey Pines (T11 in ‘09, T29 in ‘08, T20 in ‘07, T18 in ‘05).
best finishes – 1st in ‘10, T7 in ‘09
Big Ben is ready to go. He looks to keep his Top 10 streak alive here after a good opening T21 at the Tournament of Champions. He’ll look to stay strong and contend in such a stacked field.
best finishes – T9 in ‘10, 1st in ‘09, T9 in ‘07
Looking for a breakout year and should post another high finish here in his first start of the season.
best finishes – 1st in ‘93, 2nd in ‘96, 1st in ‘00, 1st in ‘01, 19 in ‘10, T6 in ‘08, T8 in ‘06
I think Phil has a great chance to win. This is a comeback season for Phil and he needs to start the season right!
Charles Howell III
best finishes – T9 in ‘10, T13 in ‘08, 2nd in ‘07, T2 in ‘05, T7 in ‘03
Stellar record here (NO MISSED CUTS!)and also coming off of a T13 at the Bob Hope. Looking like a great sleeper this week.
Alan :: Dustin Johnson, Ryuji Imada, Anthony Kim and Tiger Woods
Bob :: Bill Haas, Keegan Bradley, Anthony Kim and Tiger Woods
