The World’s number 7 golfer has one appearance here in 2008 with a T42. He’s also coming off of a T18 at Doral and is always a threat to win.
Cink has had 7 appearances here with 3 Top 10’s. Missed the Cut last year, but 2nd in ’08, 3rd in ’05. Notice a trend? He is coming off of a T28 after a bad weekend in Puerto Rico
Coming off of a T3 at Puerto Rico, Ames has a great record here. 6 appearances, 3 Top 25’s, 2 Top 10’s. Most recently, 6th last year.
other Nike athletes to choose from :: Justin Leonard, Lucas Glover, Jamie Lovemark, Joseph Bramlett
recent finishes – 5th Honda Classic, T19 Mayakoba, T35 Northern Trust
I can’t believe he’s on this list. Hasn’t played here before.
recent finishes – T3 Puerto Rico, T14 Honda Classic, T35 Northern Trust
I just like the way he’s trending this week. Hasn’t played here before.
Charles Howell III
recent finishes – T10 Honda Classic, T13 Mayakoba
Howell is solid. He has had 8 starts at this event and is averaging 33rd place. 28th last year, 2nd in ’09 and 6th in ’07.
recent finishes –1st WGC Caddy, T9 Match Play, T6 Pebble Beach, T5 Phoenix Open, T6 Farmers
Also, Watney has continuously improved at this course 58, 48, 23, 12, 4 (2006-2010) in his appearances here. I think he’s winning two in a row.
looking at 2000-2010
best finishes – 1st in ’06, 1st in ’02, 2nd in ’10, 6th in ’07
Very sexy pick this week, but I just don’t see it. Coming off of a T39 at Doral. Followed up his win in ’06 with a 6th. Let’s see if he can follow up big.
best finishes – 4th i n’06, 8th in ‘2010, 8th in ’07, 12th in ’09
He has the best record here. 8 starts, 5 Top 25’s, 3 Top 10’s. He’s averaging 21st place.
best finishes – 1st in ’09, 1st in ’03, 5th in ’10
Goosen had the best defense after his win in ’09 with a 5th last year. Nice!
best finishes –1st in ’04, 2nd in ’03, T19 in ’06, T19 in ’07
Vijay hasn’t played here in a long time (07), but his record is great. He’s also coming off of a T22 at Doral. Watch out!
Alan :: Ryan Palmer, Nick Watney, Ryan Moore and Lucas Glover
Bob :: Martin Kaymer, Nick Watney, Stewart Cink and Stephen Ames
Damian :: Justin Rose, Nick Watney, Charles Howell III and Paul Casey
I really wanted to take Kaymer and Mannaserro this week. Same with a healthy Bubba.Tough picks. You could even take a good all Nike team with Casey, Cink, Ames and Leonard. I wonder how they will do…
We usually average 25 unique golfers per event. NG Nation has already given you 10. Let’s get wild!
