Well, there’s two clear front-runners this week; Jason Day and Steve Stricker. Honestly, I think one of them will win. If not one of them, then maybe Bryce Molder, Stewart Cink or Heath Slocum.
This is the second event of Month 7. For a refresher on the rules, hit the link — Contest Guidelines and leave your Fantasy Four below (don’t forget your ONE Nike Athlete).
Cink has 3 missed cuts all year; 1st event of the year, The Masters and The US Open (his last event). He’s bounced with with Top 60’s in those first two…how will be bounce back this week? Could be a very good sleeper this week. He has played well here..just not recently. T8 in ’04, T29 in ’05 – that was his last two appearances here.
Started off well last week..faded again though. Hopefully he can bounce back here.
cut last week after 74-74. Hasn’t finished better than T42 this year, but did have all 4 rounds in the 60’s at the Travelers.
Had his best finish of the year at St. Jude, but followed it up with a barely missed cut of 70-70. Probably the 2nd best option on the list based on recent play.
other Nike athletes to choose from :: none
Charles Howell III
recent finishes – T3 AT&T National, T3 St. Jude, T22 Memorial, T20 HPBNC
He’s definitely the 2nd hottest in the field this week after Day. T39 here last year
recent finishes – T8 AT&T National, T6 Travelers
T11 here last year. He could definitely pull out the win this week.
recent finishes – T6 AT&T National, T17 Travelers
I don’t even think I knew who Chris Stroud was. I’m impressed with his T12 at The Players. T15 here in ’09, DNP in ’10. SLEEPER!
recent finishes – T15 AT&T National, T9 Travelers, T11 St. Jude
He’s quietly playing really well. He’s made 10/12 cuts this year. Can’t complain about it. T39 here last year.
Jason Day – in his past 6 starts, he has 5 Top 10’s and a T31.
T15 here last year. T15 here in ’09.
Best finishes at this event – T15 in ’10, 1st in ’08, T11 in ’07
Kenny “Katy” Perry (he kissed a girl…and he liked it). He’s having a weird year. That’s all I will say.
Best finishes at this event – 1st in ’10, 1st in ’09, T4 in ’04
Hot hot hot. Someone tell me how he doesn’t win! Jason Day playoff? Sounds good to me.
Best finishes at this event – T21 in ’10, 1st in ’07, T13 in ’05, T2 in’03
Byrd has played well this year — could make some magic happen.
Best finishes at this event – 5th in ’10, T5 in ’09
He always plays well here (in the past 2 years). He’s not playing well lately, as he’s on 4 straight missed cuts. However, he was on a nice streak of a T6, T21 and T19 before that. This could be a very big breakthrough week for him. I’d like to see someone take a gamble on him.
Alan :: Jason Day, Steve Marino, Jonathan Byrd and Jhonattan Vegas
Bob :: Jason Day, Steve Stricker, David Toms and Jhonattan Vegas
Damian :: Jason Day, Steve Stricker, Heath Slocum and Stewart Cink
Other big names in the field: Louis Oosthuizen, David Toms, Brian Gay, Steve Marino, John Daly..check out the full field.
There are the obvious this week, but you really need to look at Matt Jones, Bryce Molder, Heath Slocum and John Merrick. I really think one of these guys could steal a win.
I think the most popular 4 this week will be; Stricker/Day/ZJ/Cink
