#2. Martin Kaymer, Matt Kuchar & Tiger Woods: Yes, I said it. Tiger Woods. He's won here before and as the "drought" continues I can't help but wonder when he will win again. I still believe it's a matter of time and he's paired with my pick of the week. Martin Kaymer is the #2 ranked golfer in the world but for how long? Earlier this year you could have counted him in come Sunday and now it's a question of if he will make the cut. A win here would silence a few critics and could give him a boost with three majors to go. Matt Kuchar is my pick of the week to win. He's consistent and cool under pressure. He has made the cut in all 10 PGA TOUR starts this season and has six top 10's to show for it.
#1. Bubba Watson, Luke Donald & Mark Wilson: A group like this will be interesting to watch. Bubba Watson and Mark Wilson are the only players on TOUR with multiple wins this season. For Wilson, they came earlier in the year while Watson just won his second a couple of weeks ago. Wilson ranked first in the FedEx Cup Standings but Bubba Watson took over the top spot and knocked him down to second and Donald moved him to 3rd. Luke Donald is still in the hunt for #1 in the Official World Golf Rankings and is hoping to join his group with multiple wins. He sits in 2nd in the FedEx Cup standings and 3rd world rankings, something he will be looking to improve upon with a win this week.
