The Greenbirer Classic - Power Rankings and One-and-done

The Greenbrier Classic is inching closer by the minute and here is a power ranking and one-and-done to complete our week's work. As mentioned in the Preview on Sunday, this is a tough tournament for which to prepare.

Here's our best effort:

  1. Paul Casey - Looked very good in his P2 at the Travelers Championship last week and is a solid fit for his first trip to The Old White TPC as well. Nice combination of class and form.
  2. Bubba Watson - Highly unlikely that he goes back-to-back, but his value this week is impossible to ignore. Trending with a T30-T16 run in his last two.
  3. Webb Simpson - A bit of a course horse here, which always makes Webb dangerous, he's 4/5 with three top 10s and a third-place finish last year.
  4. Bill Haas - While Casey has form and class, Haas offers class and course history. He's 4/4 with a pair of top 10s here. 
  5. Tony Finau - Right mix of really good form and shares the look of some of the early winners of this event. Long off the tee and has the ability to make some birdies.
  6. Graham DeLaet - The Canuck nearly popped the cork on his first win last week and is 3/3 with a T12 in 2012 at The Old White TPC. 
  7. Steven Bowditch - The Aussie has always been right at home on on this course and actually has some believable current form as well.
  8. Keegan Bradley - Flashed some nice signs last week to go with a T4 last year. Certainly an intriguing option in most formats.
  9. Patrick Reed - Comes down to his class relative to the field. He's 1/2 in this event, but doesn't own a top 25.
  10. Kevin Kisner - Typically, great form trumps bad history, which is what we have in play this week for Kisner. One of the hottest players on TOUR the last two months.
  11. Russell Henley 
  12. J.B. Holmes
  13. Pat Perez
  14. Brendan Todd
  15. David Lingmerth
  16. Louis Oosthuizen
  17. George McNeill
  18. Kevin Na
  19. Carl Pettersson
  20. Robert Streb
  21. Brendon de Jonge
  22. Jason Bohn
  23. Daniel Berger
  24. Rory Sabbatini
  25. Jon Curran
As for the one-and-done, it was nice to at least sneak out a top 10 with Brandt Snedeker last week. Given the nature of this tournament, this is a great week to take a risk. I'm doing that with Steven Bowditch. Best of luck to all!
