Group A
Group B
Group B
Group C
Round 4
Henrik Stenson
Rory McIlroy
Jim Furyk
Sergio Garcia
Round 4 Notes
  • Weather: Perfect weather all morning with 3-4mph winds; 40-50% chance of rain in the PM but still 4mph winds forecasted.
  • We’ll start Stenson instead of Fowler on Sunday, in case he climbs into the top 3. Given Rose is out of it and Furyk will have an uphill climb, we’ll preserve our last 2 Rose starts for the playoffs. Sergio > McDowell one more time. We have only one more McDowell start, so we’ll save it for the playoffs.

Throw out the historical performance and go with the trends and Justin is play really well, despite the concerning 1-2 ft misses on the greens on Saturday.
