Players That Can Make a Move:

  • Bubba Watson

  • Rickie Fowler
  • Jon Rahm
  • Hideki Matsuyuama
  • Paul Casey


My Pick: Tiger Woods- I’ve been calling it since December, but I really do believe that Woods will put on the Green Jacket for a fifth time.  Since his return to the game, after a year-long absence, Woods has looked like his former self.  He has finished inside the Top 12 in his past three tournaments, including Top-5 finishes in his past two.  Most importantly, however, Tiger is having fun again.  When that happens, he is always dangerous.

Sleeper: Cameron Smith-  Don’t be surprised that you haven’t heard of Smith before.  With only one career win, Smith is never brought up in the golfing world, especially during the majors.  This might change this year.  Smith is one of the hottest golfers on the planet right now.  He has finished in the Top-6 four times this season, and been in the Top-25 seven times.  Smith made the cut in 90% of his tournaments this PGA Tour season and is 20th in the FedEx Cup Rankings.  If a no-name is going to make a move, Smith has a good a shot as any.
