    Rickie Fowler, Jim Furyk
    Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood
    Westwood Has finished in the top five each of the past two years and is coming off a seven-shot win at the Malaysian Open and seventh-place finish at the Masters.
    D.J. PIEHOWSKI,
    Digital Producer
    J.B. Holmes, Rory McIlroy
    Justin Rose, Daniel Summerhays
    Rose Not a great record at Quail Hollow, but he's due to contend and striking it beautifully, coming off a windy final-round 68 and backdoor top 10 at Zurich.
    RYAN SMITHSON, 
    Site Producer
    Rory McIlroy, Ryan Moore
    Webb Simpson, Lee Westwood
    Westwood Pretty straightforward week. Hot player (Westwood), former winner (Rory), local guy (Webb) and good Quail Hollow history (Moore).

    Robert Karlsson, Rory McIlroy
    Phil Mickelson, Lee Westwood
    McIlroy In this season of parity, the chalk will always contend in the long-term, at least that’s what I keep telling myself.
    MIKE McALLISTER,
    Managing Editor
    Robert Karlsson, Rory McIlroy
    Webb Simpson, Lee Westwood
    Simpson OK so he's not in form. But he is a member at Quail Hollow. Counting on local knowledge here
    BRYAN MULLEN,
    Site Producer
    Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson
    Ryan Moore, Pat Perez
    Moore Finished T6 here last year and has had multiple standout showings during the 2013-14 season, including a playoff victory at the CIMB Classic.

    Westwood Quail Hollow set-up is like a major. Just the way the recent winner in Malaysia likes it; evidenced by his top 5 finishes here the last 2 years.
    ANNE DETLEFSEN,
    Site Producer
    Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy
    Phil Mickelson, Lee Westwood
    McIlroy McIlroy's game has been trending up, and he's got great history at this stop.
    BILL COONEY, 
    Site Producer
    Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson
    Justin Rose, Lee Westwood
    Rose Finished strong in New Orleans and appears to be healthy again. Going chalk here because Quail Hollow usually plays tough.
    CHRIS DUNHAM, 
    Site Producer
    Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy
    Jimmy Walker, Nick Watney
    Fowler There are 10 different players I could have picked before settling on these four. Fowler's cut last week doesn't bother me because he was playing so well before it.

    Mickelson Seven top-10s in 10 starts here at Quail Hollow. This could be the start of a big summer for the popular lefthander.

    Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy
    Ryan Moore, Webb Simpson
    Moore It feels like a horses-for-courses kind of week and Moore has a good record at Quail Hollow with a T6 last year and a T5 in 2012.
