    SEAN MARTIN,
    Events Editor
    Keegan Bradley, Matt Kuchar
    Jimmy Walker, Gary Woodland
    Woodland Woodland just seems due, having made 12 consecutive cuts, including eight top-25s.
    D.J. PIEHOWSKI,
    Digital Producer
    Marc Leishman, Jordan Spieth
    Brendan Steele, Gary Woodland
    Woodland Woodland is trending and hasn't missed a cut since October. Spieth will be tired, but I'd never forgive myself for missing out on a big week at home.
    RYAN SMITHSON, 
    Site Producer
    Dustin Johnson, Martin Kaymer
    Jimmy Walker, Jordan Spieth
    Spieth Pretty easy picks with a good post-PLAYERS field. I have only used Spieth once this year, because I am an idiot.
    CHRIS DUNHAM, 
    Site Producer
    Keegan Bradley, Freddie Jacobson
    Martin Kaymer, Matt Kuchar
    Kaymer At least I'm not the only one with Kaymer this week. No one has won consecutive events since 2012 but I'll bet on good form and last year's T5.
    ROB BOLTON, 
    Fantasy Columnist
    Keegan Bradley, Ryo Ishikawa
    Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth
    Bradley In a season full of bad timing, I’ve slipped into the position in which I’ll need relative fliers to come through if I’m going to defend.
    ANNE DETLEFSEN,
    Site Producer
    Keegan Bradley, Harris English
    Morgan Hoffmann, Jordan Spieth
    Bradley Perfect place for Keegan Bradley  (2011 champ) to rebound with a win after last week's missed cut.
    BRYAN MULLEN,
    Site Producer
    Morgan Hoffmann, Matt Kuchar
    Charl Schwartzel, Jordan Spieth
    Hoffmann Gained some confidence after a T17 at THE PLAYERS. Finished T5 at HP Byron Nelson in 2013.
    MIKE McALLISTER,
    Managing Editor
    Keegan Bradley, Ryan Palmer
    Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker
    Bradley My team has three Texans, but it's the lone non-Texan that I'm picking to win. Tough to argue against Keegan's track record here.
    BILL COONEY, 
    Site Producer
    Jimmy Walker, Matt Kuchar, Ryan Palmer, Jordan Spieth. Spieth Look for Spieth to be highly motiviated to finish the job in his hometown.  
    JOHN SWANTEK, 
    Host, LIVE@
    Ryan Palmer, Jordan Spieth
    Brian Stuard, Jimmy Walker
    Spieth "Stinging" from the loss at The Players, but has the ability to quickly shake off stings. In fact, it motivates him.
    HELEN ROSS, 
    Chief of Correspondents

    Keegan Bradley, Ryan Palmer
    Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker
    Spieth My team is stacked with Texans this week. All are playing well and have history here but I look for Spieth to shake off Sunday's disappointment and make a statement in his hometown.
    BRIAN WACKER, 
    Staff writer

    Keegan Bradley, Matt Kuchar
    Ryan Palmer, Jordan Spieth
    Bradley He won there in 2011 and shot a course-record 60 in the opening round last year. A "favorite" has to win at some point this season, right?
    AMANDA BALIONIS,
    Host, Trending on TOUR
    Keegan Bradley, Marc Leishman
    Jordan Spieth, Gary Woodland
    Spieth Coming off an amazing debut performance at TPC Sawgrass, Spieth will appreciate unwinding at his home course event and walk away with the W.
