*Make sure you check our Twitter accounts for any updates before the first tee ball flies on Thursday. Change in weather, tee times, etc. can always lead to last-minute changes and we will let you know through our social media channels. 


This week's Strategy: It looks to be a windy week ahead of us. Whenever wind is in the forecast it is good to split tee-time waves when possible to provide the most flexibility.

Season Rank: 15,823


Group A


Dustin Johnson (7): All he does is win. Returning from injury but he was close to teeing off at the Masters, so his back should be just fine now. 

Adam Scott (7): The Aussie posted a T9 at the Masters and should see a similar test this week at Eagle Point GC.

=SUPER SUBS =

Graeme McDowell, Patrick Reed, Bill Haas
 


Group B

Webb Simpson (10): Hasn't been the most consistent golfer for quite a while now, but we should see a steady performance this week as he tees it up at a very familiar venue. 

Francesco Molinari (7): Steady as it comes, especially in a field without much depth this week. 
 

Phil Mickelson (7): He continues to spray it all over the park but still manages to rack up birdies in bunches. 

Paul Casey (5): I've been riding him early in the season through his ups and down. Going to stick with him now that he's rounding into form. 
  

=SUPER SUBS=
William McGirt, Hudson Swafford, Jim Furyk, Kevin Kisner

 

Group C

Byeong Hun An (10): The early wave on Thursday looks to have a slight wind advantage if the current forecast holds. For that reason, I'm choosing An to lead things off. His ball-striking keeps propelling him to paychecks. It's just a matter of time before he finds his putting strokes in the States. 

Jon Rahm (7): Not showing any signs of slowing down, so I will show no signs of removing him from my lineup. 
 

=SUPER SUBS=
Daniel Berger, J.B. Holmes, Emiliano Grillo
