Comments SEAN MARTIN,
Jim Furyk, Luke Donald, Kevin Na, Russell Henley
Furyk He has a win and two runners-up at Harbour Town, a course that definitely fits his game. He's coming off three consecutive top-20s. D.J. PIEHOWSKI,
Russell Henley, Jordan Spieth, Matt Kuchar, Harris English
Henley He's played well since his Honda win and top 10'd in his only appearance at Harbour Town. I'm filling out the team with great short games to back him up. JOHN SWANTEK,
Will MacKenzie, Jim Furyk, Zach Johnson, Kevin Stadler
MacKenzie He's 14th in FedExCup and fourth in scoring; fueling a strong resurgent season. And does Willy Mac's laid back Carolina vibe fit anywhere better than the low country? RYAN SMITHSON,
Matt Kuchar, Jim Furyk, Charley Hoffman, Zach Johnson
Kuchar Tough week to pick: Great field, and so many players set up well here. I hope I am not making a mistake by not starting G-Mac.
Jim Furyk, Graeme McDowell, Kevin Na, Luke Donald
Furyk Rather straightforward lineup featuring a mix of surgical approach, short-game wizardry and success at Harbour Town. BRYAN MULLEN,
Kevin Streelman, Carl Pettersson, Russell Henley, Chris Kirk
Streelman He finished T3 here in 2013, just two shots out of the playoff. Coming off some solid play at Augusta where he was 1 under entering the weekend. ANNE DETLEFSEN,
Russell Henley, Graeme McDowell, Stewart Cink, Charley Hoffman
Henley The Honda Classic champ is coming off a decent showing at the Masters (T31), and was T6 here last year.
MIKE MCALLISTER, Managing Editor Jim Furyk, Luke Donald, Charley Hoffman, Matt Kuchar Furyk Hard to believe he hasn't won since 2010, but Harbour Town seems like a perfect spot to end the drought. CHRIS DUNHAM,
Briny Baird, Luke Donald, Harris English, Jim Furyk
Baird Chasing his first trip to the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola since 2008, Baird is 68th in the FedExCup and has three top 20s in his last four trips to Harbour Town. BILL COONEY,
Russell Henley, Luke Donald, Russell Knox, Jordan Spieth
Henley Loved Henley as a sleeper at the Masters -- and he came through with a T31 despite a 150 weekend. Great on short tracks. Can really putt when he gets it rolling.

Z. Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Luke Donald, Jim Furyk
Z. Johnson His performance at the Masters was an aberration in an otherwise solid season. Look for the man who ranks sixth in driving accuracy and 15th in GIR to bounce back well on a course that rewards ball-striking. BRIAN WACKER,
Jim Furyk, Zach Johnson, Harris English, Luke Donald
Furyk Harbour Town is a perfect track for his game with its small greens and premium on accuracy. Plus he's in good form after a T15 at the Masters. AMANDA BALIONIS,
