Tiger’s the word this week. The other big name is Louis Oosthuizen comes from a Top 5 at St. Andrews last week. Tiger’s coming off of a course record. Let’s go.
Paul Casey is in the field, too. Sneaky. Same with Ernie Els. There are some names this week!

Cut here last year, but T23 in 2009 and T27 in 2007. Coming off of a Top 25 last week.
Great record here. T24 last year, T13 in ’09, 6th in ’07. Coming off of a T17 at the Wyndham over a month ago.
First time here. last 4 starts; 29th last week, 62 at Soboba, 5th at Mylan, T21 at Knoxville.
New caddy. New course record and a sight to get back into form for life and the President’s Cup.
Casey’s last 4 tournaments were all state-side (Wyndham/PGA/WGC Bridgestone/Canadian Open). CUT at Canadian Open and 47, 72 and 45 at the others. Let’s hope Casey has worked on his game and is ready to ball.
Bramlett played here last year as an amateur and missed the cut. He’s shot 66 in his last two tournaments, but any experience is good for the rookie.
Young Tway has made 1 cut in his last 4 events, but that made cut consisted of 4 rounds in the 60’s on the Nationwide Tour. First time here.
recent finishes – 5th at JT Shriner, 6th Boise Open
7 of last 8 rounds in the 60s. First time here.
recent finishes – 2-1-1 at Walker Cup, 2nd at US Amateur Match Play, 9th Canadian Open, T20 AT&T National, T24 Travelers, T21 US Open
I’m in love with this kid. No homo.
recent finishes – 16th JT Shriners, 6th Boise Open, T30 Wyndham, T10 Reno-Tahoe
Same story as Hearn, really. Both playing well, both first timers here.
recent finishes – 1st JT Shriners
2 top 10s in his last 4. Cut here in ’08 and T61 in ’07. Doesn’t have great history in following up on his Top 10s
Best finishes – 8th in ’09, 29th in ’08, 12th in ’07
Last start was a T22 at the BMW Championship. Made the cut at the first 3 playoff events

Alan :: Chad Campbell, Louis Oosthuizen, Cameron Tringale and Tiger Woods
Bob :: Steve Elkington, Tommy Gainey, Pat Perez and Justin Leonard
Damian :: Tim Herron, Patrick Cantlay, Paul Casey and Tiger Woods
There’s a lot of sleepers I would like to take, but I basically took 4. It seems weird that Casey and Woods are sleepers, but Casey has probably had one of the worst years of his careers if you take away his 1 win in Europe. I’m hoping he bounces back here. I’d like to give Levin/Oosthuizen/Crane and Molder a shot, but I’m going with dogs this week.
Crane would be my 5th. Has 2 Top 20’s in his last starts here and he’s coming off of a Top 10 last week. Heck, I may end up switching them.
