Off we go!
- Jason Day - Anytime you win three of your last four starts, you get the top spot.
- Jordan Spieth - Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and I think the same principal could apply this week. The last time he missed a cut, he tied for second in his next start (Colonial CC). Has a T4 on his TPC Boston resume in 2013.
- Bubba Watson - Two top-three finishes in his last three starts is a nice trend, and he's made seven of his nine cuts at TPC Boston. Banking on his form being a bigger deal than his course history, which does not include a top 10.
- Rory McIlroy - Already a winner at this venue, he's back for the first time since his 17th at the PGA Championship. It's time for him to heat up.
- Henrik Stenson - Looked the part in last week's runner-up finish and is a past winner of this event.
- Justin Rose - Has two top fives in his last three starts and two top fives at TPC Boston. Good enough for me, given his class.
- Dustin Johnson - On a course that favors longer players, he has made all five of his cuts with a pair of T4s.
- Matt Kuchar - Is 9/11 with five top 25s, which is both not surprising and a reason to give him a hard look.
- Jim Furyk - Always a trusted hand for a top-10 finish, he's 10/10 with six top 25s and three top 10s at the DBC.
- Brooks Koepka - Earns the final spot inside the top 10 due to his recent form. I'm ignoring his week at The Barclays because that course isn't a good fit for him on paper. This one is.
- Robert Streb
- Louis Oosthuizen
- Bill Haas
- Webb Simpson
- Paul Casey
- Brendan Steele
- Brandt Snedeker
- Billy Horschel
- Russell Henley
- Phil Mickelson
- Zach Johnson
- Jason Bohn
- Tony Finau
- Justin Thomas
- Ryan Palmer
With the pickings slim, I'm rolling with the course history angle and taking Russell Henley.
Best of luck to all this week!
