The Honda Classic - One-and-Done

The Honda Classic is set to kick off the Florida Swing, and here is this week's one-and-done.


If we've learned anything the last three week's, it's that things are looking chalky of late. The last three winners are Hideki Matsuyama, Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson.


While I tried to talk myself out of it, I'm keeping with that classy group and throwing Adam Scott's name in the hat this week.


Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!

Genesis Open - One-and-Done

The Genesis Open is about to kick off at Riviera Country Club, with Bubba Watson as the defending champion. This week's one-and-done is about as complicated as its past champion.


Given a chance for weather, it's tough to stomach the idea of burning a start on a guy like Dustin Johnson, who is the favorite for my money. Instead, I'm going with Sergio Garcia. His form is great and there isn't an obvious must-play spot in his future.


Best of luck to all!

AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am - One-and-Done

In my mind, the one-and-done selection in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was a two-horse race from the get go. While Dustin Johnson could certainly be an argument, his recent form in that event has been more of a guy having fun with Wayne Gretzky than a player trying to win a tournament. That leaves Phil Mickelson and Brandt Snedeker.


Sneds has been hit-or-miss in his nine visits, but has twice been a winner. Lefty is a four-time winner who has played fairly well of late, but has thrown up plenty of bogeys to go with his plethora of bogeys.


Weather should be fairly brutal on Thursday, but both Lefty and Sneds will avoid the exposed Pebble Beach layout in favor of Monterey Peninsula Country Club. Either way, that's a push.


I'm rolling with Sneds for a couple of reasons. For starters, I wonder if Phil may have run out of gas on the back nine at the WMPO last week. I also have concerns that Phil may get off to a bad start in the poor weather and lose interest. Seeing that Sneds looked very comfortable two weeks ago at Torrey Pines, where he's also been great over the years, I have the confidence that this will be one of his good weeks on the Monterey Peninsula.


Best of luck to all, and let's go Sneds!

Waste Management Phoenix Open - One-and-Done

Sometimes the selection of a one-and-done is easy, and sometimes it is hard. For the Waste Management Phoenix Open, it's an absolute no-brainer.


Not all that different than Jordan Spieth at Augusta National, it would appear that TPC Scottsdale is made for Hideki Matsuyama. In his three trips, he's finished no worse than T4 and is the defending champion.


Easy call. Matsuyama!
