I still think Tiger is a couple weeks away from being a major contender, but he is always capable of winning this event.  He has played really well at Doral in the past, and there isn't any reason he won't play somewhat decent golf this week.

As far as a winner goes, the first two golfers who come to mind are Graeme McDowell and Martin Kaymer.  They are playing well as of late, and they have plenty of game to win at this venue.  Hunter Mahan is another guy who comes to mind because of his great overall golf game.  He is long and straight enough off the tee to put himself in great position, and his iron play is usually solid as well.  If he can putt well, he will be a factor.

No offense, but we're getting near stopped clock territory.

I'll go with Hunter this week.

Srixon versus Nike (or "Niki" as one guy on here insists) and Callaway. Another group features TM v. PING v. Cobra.  Very interesting.

They should try groupings based on OEM - all 3 guys from one team, just like cylcling.

i read it too, walked with foley during practice round and was spraying many shots. Walked to 18 and sprayed one into the water, smiled and then did the same thing again, this time had a more serious face. Teed it up for third time and hits it into right ruff. His follow through and release is weird, definitly doesnt look like foleys other players.

Is this when I should say Hunter Mahan?

It is more fun to pick players after the first two rounds. It's so much left up to chance, performances going up and down each week. After the first two rounds you got some indication of who will be around and who is at +4.

I'll go with Kaymer.

    • I stand corrected. I will however, stand by the fact that he's not nearly as far gone as someone like Fowler. This year was clearly a drop on the stats front, but he still finished respectably on the money list. I'm not ready to assign him to the trash heap yet. Completely OT, but I'm curious how Rory's recent fall in the rankings compares with others who've fallen hard from the top  - not because of physical injury (I'm making an assumption that injury is not Rory's issue). People like Jordan (who's rebounded) and Duval. Do they collapse in one area (e.g. putting) or many areas? Is there any pattern? My guess is that there isn't a pattern, and that it's such a hard game that any golf "skill" that degrades can cause a precipitous drop in results.
    • @kmp which rules would you change, and how?  Though no rules should allow cutting down the lone tree at Chambers Bay...
    • Man, get well soon (seriously). This is just chit-chat about golf, or, to be precise, a level of golf most of we mere mortals can only watch in awe before heading out and skinning one over the green. The best of luck with your recovery. And I'm sorry for being snippy.
    • Yeah sorry your right but my point was Jack didn’t make the course the reason he didn’t win, my memory is abit off after a month in a coma. I’m trying to setup a new laptop and it’s not happening, I’ve had to admit defeat and get some help. My bad…
