Take a look at the GNN Top 10 this week, then let us know your picks on Twitter @GolfNewsNet or using the hashtage #GNNFantasy.
1. Graeme McDowell – G-Mac has been in it deepr into each of the last two major championships and finished T-12 at the Masters. His game is perfect for the game’s four biggest stages.
2. Tiger Woods – Given Woods’ struggles on Pete Dye designs – primarily TPC Sawgrass’ Stadium Course – it seems he should be flummoxed by the Ocean Course. With three wins this year, however, it’s hard to overlook him.
3. Matt Kuchar – The Players champion is already a winner on a Dye course this year. He was T-8 at Firestone and is a top-10 machine. He had a taste at the Masters.
4. Jason Dufner – Finishing T-7 at Firestone, Dufner can handle the long tracks. He also likes Dye courses, winning in New Orleans this year on one. His demeanor is perfect for major championships.
5. Jim Furyk – He’s been sorely disappointed with his finish three times this year – Tampa, the U.S. Open and last week. Still, he’s been in it to win three times this year. Don’t overlook that, or his ability to dust himself off.
6. Dustin Johnson – He won in heat this year (Memphis), grew up in the state and finished T-9 at The Open Championship. Being a bomber certainly helps on the longest major layout ever.
7. Bubba Watson – The Masters champion finished T-19 last week and T-23 at Lytham. He loves the Ryder Cup and will be jacked to get into form starting the run to Medinah.
8. Keegan Bradley – Last week’s winner at Firestone can’t glean much about this week from Ohio, but can take a world of confidence. He hits it long and straight.
9. Jonathan Byrd – Consider Byrd a flier this week. He’s a Clemson kid, lives on Sea Island and finished T-12 at The Players.
10. Rory McIlroy – The Ulsterman cannot seem to fare well on Dye designs. He has never made the cut at The Players and is a poor wind player.
