Rickie Fowler, 33/1 - If he's on, yes. If not, no. I know that sounds obvious, but Fowler has a ton of moving parts. Timing is crucial in his swing. We'll see.

Steve Stricker, 40/1 - Gift pick at these odds. Game is tailor made for this course. Very possible.

Hunter Mahan, 40/1 - Resting on his laurels from earlier in the season. Possible, doubt it.
Jim Furyk, 40/1 - Hmm... Not sure. Has game suited for this track. Good for a flier.
Zach Johnson,40/1 - Can't count him out. Huge competitor behind the perma-smile. Like him.
