(A) Adam Scott (16) Deutsche Bank
(15) Barclays
(15) PGA Champ.
(8) WGC Bridgestone
Tourney never played at Cherry Hills. No course history to report. Adam Scott continues his top 20 streak although he’s cooled down from his hot play in June of this year. We’re out of starts for him, so we’re having to go down the list.
(A) Matt Kuchar (29) Deutsche Bank
(5) Barclays
(12) WGC Bridgestone
(4) RBC Canadian
Matt hasn’t been getting top 3s but he’s helped your team throughout the week. Given the lack of recent PGA Tour history at Cherry Hills, we’re going to preserve our last Kuchar start for the Tour Championship (where’s hes had a nice track record). That means our Others to Consider section will contain our two starters: #3 Henrik Stenson (our 1st starter), #4 Rickie Fowler (our 2nd starter), #5 Gary Woodland, #6 Bubba Watson, #7 Phil Mickelson, #8 Kevin Stadler, #9 Charles Howell III, #10 Patrick Reed
(B) Rory McIlroy (5) Deutsche Bank
(22) Barclays
(1) PGA Champ.
(1) WGC Bridgestone
Rory roared back after a poor first round but his Monday wasn’t nearly good enough and he finished outside the top 3. We are out of Rory starts for the last two events.
(B) Jim Furyk (23) Deutsche Bank
(8) Barclays
(5) PGA Champ.
(15) WGC Bridgestone
It’s been a winless yet amazing year for Furyk. We have one more start remaining and we’ll save it for the Tour Championship when the field is smaller, given his track record there.
(B) Bill Haas (9) Deutsche Bank
(15) Barclays
(2) Wyndham
(27) PGA Champ.
Bill Haas is surging as the season comes to a close, so expect him in our lineup from here on in. He’s got a Fedex Cup that speaks for his ability in these last 4 events.
(B) Justin Rose (30) Barclays
(24) PGA Champ.
(4) WGC Bridgestone
(23) British Open
After back-to-back victories, his top 25s seemed somewhat pedestrian. However, after a week off, perhaps he’ll come out “swinging” and set himself up for a Fedex Cup rally at the Tour Championship. Others to consider: #5 Jason Day (our 3rd starter), #6 Zach Johnson (our 4th starter), #7 Jordan Spieth, #8 Hunter Mahan, #9 Keegan Bradley, #10 Webb Simpson
(C) Jimmy Walker (9) Deutsche Bank
(MC) Barclays
(7) PGA Champ.
(26) WGC Bridgestone
There are 10 million reasons why Jimmy should have the right motivations these final two weeks.
(C) Sergio Garcia (57) Barclays
(36) PGA Champ.
(2) WGC Bridgestone
(2) British Open
He’s had back-to-back poor showings (for his standards), so after a week off, perhaps he’ll have his game together and make a run. Others to consider: #3 John Senden, #4 Graeme McDowell, #5 Charl Schwartzel, #6 Ryan Palmer, #7 Cameron Tringale, #8 Kevin Na, #9 Russell Knox, #10 Chris Stroud
