Because many of those with strong records at Colonial are not having the best of seasons and enter the week with form a question, correct selections will likely vault you ahead in some formats. This is a week to take calculated risks because the "chalk" is a calculated risk anyway.
With that as the backdrop.....here we go:
Our resurgence in the Yahoo! format continued last week, picking up 163 points and moving up to 4,069 in the rankings (96th percentile) with 3171 points. Our Spring ranking boosted to 2,497 with 1,249 points.
Here's where we're headed this week:
- A-List - Chris Kirk starting with Jason Dufner on the bench
- B-List - Zach Johnson and Ben Crane starting with Jim Furyk and Bo Van Pelt on the bench
- C-List - Kevin Streelman starting with Charl Schwartzel on the bench.
Golf Channel is another one of those duel-tournament weeks. In addition to Colonial, we have the European Tour's stop at Wentworth. I don't proclaim to be any sort of an expert on the European Tour, but I do know Luke Donald is the two-time defending champion. That's exactly why I picked against him.
- Group 1 - Charl Schwartzel
- Group 2 - Chris Kirk
- Group 3 - Harris English
- Group 4 - Richard H. Lee
- Group 1 - Justin Rose
- Group 2 - Francesco Molinari
- Group 3 - Peter Lawrie
- Group 4 - James Morrison

I'll be back tomorrow with the one-and-done. I can't recall a tournament this year where I'm this undecided this late in the week. Hopefully it will clear up soon!
