    Luke Donald, Harris English, Jordan Spieth, Gary Woodland
    Donald Has finished in the top 6 in his past three starts here, and played well for three rounds at Doral.

    Jason Dufner, Matt Kuchar, Justin Rose, Gary Woodland
    Kuchar After the underrated cut streak ended at Riviera (at 30), he's back to his ultra-consistent ways. T13 at Doral after holding the 36-hole lead.
    RYAN SMITHSON, Site Producer Luke Donald, Jason Dufner, Harris English, Jordan Spieth
    Dufner I am going with a safe lineup for this week with few gambles. I hate leaving Copperhead master Jim Furyk off my team, though.

    English English sits atop my Power Rankings for the reasons provided, but he also won the 2011 Southern Amateur on this course.
    ANNE DETLEFSEN,
    Site Producer
    Harris English, Matt Kuchar, John Peterson, Jordan Spieth
    English He didn't let a difficult Doral slow him down, and I don't expect Innisbrook to either.
    D.J. PIEHOWSKI,
    Digital Producer
    Graham DeLaet, Jason Dufner, Harris English, Will MacKenzie
    English Surprised Martin didn't reference English's Southern Am win at Innisbrook. He's been rock solid here (and pretty much everywhere else this year).
    BRYAN MULLEN,
    Site producer
    Jason Dufner, Harris English, Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar
    Furyk He won here in 2010 and has played well in each year since. Not a great showing at Cadillac, but Furyk will be ready.
    MIKE MCALLISTER, Managing Editor Luke Donald, Jim Furyk, Kevin Streelman, Gary Woodland
    Woodland His February results weren't as impressive as his January finishes, but Woodland feels comfortable at Innisbrook.
    CHRIS DUNHAM,
    Site Producer
    K.J. Choi, Brian Davis, Jim Furyk, Cameron Tringale
    Tringale He's one of that new group and could really make a name for himself on TOUR with a triumph this week.
    BILL COONEY,
    Site Producer
    Harris English, Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar, Jordan Spieth
    Kuchar I feel a warming trend coming on for Kuchar after a T13 at Cadillac. Good wind player with low ball flight should play favorably at Innisbrook.
    HELEN ROSS,
    Chief of Correspondents

    Luke Donald, Harris English, Bill Haas, Webb Simpson
    Donald Donald is on the upswing and he's got a comfort zone at Innisbrook after a win and two top-six finishes in his last three starts there.
    BRIAN WACKER,
    Staff writer

    Luke Donald, Jason Dufner, Jim Furyk, Jerry Kelly
    Dufner The Copperhaed Course is a ball-striker's paradise and if the Duf can do what he didn't in the final round last week -- make putts -- he'll get his first win of 2014.
    AMANDA BALIONIS,
    Host, Trending on TOUR

    Luke Donald, Matt Kuchar, Justin Rose, Webb Simpson
    Simpson Simpson hasn't finished outside the top 17 at Copperhead. Coming off a strong weekend at Doral, he'll defeat the snake pit with ease.
