I personally expect to see Kuchar and English win this event. They play solid golf consistently, but if any of these other teams like the two Brits get hot...look out!

 

Edit: I just had a thought, could you imagine an alternate shot with Dustin Johnson driving and Dufner hitting the approach shots the whole time? :blink:

There are some unique pairings in this event. Hoping DeLaet and Weir make a run.

Tripp I on the golf channel picked D.J. and Dufner to win it. They were my pick also, but I haven't been doing to well in picking winners lately..LOL

You can never discount Sticker and Kelly in this event.

I think buddies tend to play together.  I don't think anyone actually "picks" the teams, think it's more like "who would you like to play with?" and I'm sure Norman helps finalize the pairings.

Have to say that both English and Kuchar are in great nick right now.  Matt must fancy his chances at Kapalua in a couple of weeks.
