Fantasy selections
Projected champion
Rob
Bolton
Jason Day, Billy Horschel
Hunter Mahan, Adam Scott

Hunter
Mahan
Congressional can be punishing, so I want a youthful foursome with length, swagger and solid form upon arrival.
Mike
McAllister
Jason Day, Rickie Fowler
Billy Horschel, Hunter Mahan

Jason
Day
Has top-10s in each of his last two starts in this event, although one of them was at Aronimink in 2010. He's playing well this year and ranks 10th on the PGA TOUR in the all-around category that has some notable names at the top (Woods, Rose and Scott are 1-2-3).
Chris
Dunham
Jason Day, Jeff Overton
Adam Scott, Nick Watney
Nick
Watney
I had a bad dream earlier this week that I forgot to submit a fantasy lineup this week after posting three of the top finishers as my Expert Picks here (Yeah, I dream big). Crisis averted. Three consecutive missed cuts coming in for Nick Watney? Big deal. He's an average (by TOUR standards) putting week away from re-asserting himself in the FedExCup race.
Helen
Ross
Jason Day, Billy Horschel
Hunter Mahan, Adam Scott
Adam
Scott
Adam Scott has five top-25 finishes in eight starts this season including his victory at the Masters Tournament. He's finished third each of the last two years at this event, but with Tiger Woods not playing the door will be open for Scott to earn his 10th PGA TOUR title.
John
Schwarb
Jason Day, Hunter Mahan
Adam Scott, Brandt Snedeker

Adam
Scott
The rest of the year is gravy when you win a Green Jacket, but Scott's showing he's still hungry to strike while the iron's hot. He's had two top-20s since the Masters and his Congressional record (third last year) is strong. That adds up to win No. 2 on the season.
Bill
Cooney
Jason Day, Graham DeLaet
Ryan Palmer, Adam Scott

Jason
Day
Hard to believe Jason Day still sits on one career PGA TOUR victory, and that came back in the 2010 HP Byron Nelson. He was second at the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional and finished T8 last season there at AT&T. Also owns five top 10s in 13 events this season. It's his time to shine.
Anne
Detlefsen
Jason Day, Hunter Mahan
Adam Scott, Brandt Snedeker

Adam
Scott
Adam Scott finished solo-third here last year and has looked solid in his three starts since winning the Masters. Scott is third in the all-around ranking.
Ryan
Smithson
Jason Day, Hunter Mahan
Adam Scott, Billy Horschel

Jason
Day
I'm never leaving Jason Day off my team again, ever. Everyone on TOUR should hope he doesn't win again, because it would open up the floodgates for him. Congressional is for big hitters, so plan accordingly.
Brian
Wacker
Jason Day, Billy Horschel
Hunter Mahan, Adam Scott

Jason
Day
Day finished second at the U.S. Open in his last start and already has five top 10s this season. A year ago, he finished eighth at Congressional, where he also finished second when it hosted the U.S. Open in 2011.
Bryan
Mullen
Ryan Palmer, Jordan Spieth
Adam Scott, Scott Stallings

Adam
Scott
After winning the Masters, Scott finished in the top 20 in two of his next three starts, and he's rested after taking off last week. He finished three shots back of Tiger Woods last year at Congressional, and only one player (Brian Harman) matched his final-round 67.
John
Swantek
Billy Horschel, Hunter Mahan
Chris Stroud, Bo Van Pelt

Hunter
Mahan
Two strong performances on two completely different tracks the last two weeks (Merion, TPC River Highlands). Congressional falls somewhere in between and will be the victorious fit.
Amanda
Balionis
Jason Day, Graham DeLaet
Hunter Mahan, Chris Stroud

Hunter
Mahan
Mahan is coming off three consecutive top-25 finishes and tied for eighth here last year. His game is on point, and past success at this course all leads to a winning week.
Sean
Martin
Jason Day, Billy Horschel
Hunter Mahan, Brandt Snedeker

Hunter
Mahan
He looks like he's nearing another win, and Congressional may just be the place.
