    Bubba Watson, Jason Day,
    Matt Kuchar, Graham DeLaet
    Watson Bubba talks a lot about courses that fit his eye. This one obviously does. Three top-4s, including a win, in past four starts.
    D.J. PIEHOWSKI,
    Digital Producer
    Jason Day, Zach Johnson,
    Bo Van Pelt, Keegan Bradley
    Day I was gunshy about Day last week, but a T4 finish at the U.S. Open shows that he's healthy and ready to win again.
    RYAN SMITHSON, 
    Site Producer
    Keegan Bradley, Bubba Watson,
    Brendon de Jonge, Ryan Moore
    Bradley This will be the last event where I don't start Jason Day (a late scratch from my lineup). This is the week Keegan finally wins again.
    ANNE DETLEFSEN,
    Site Producer
    Jason Day, Keegan Bradley,
    Hunter Mahan, Bubba Watson
    Day Jason Day's first start in Hartford since 2009. Coming off a solid week at the U.S. Open (T4).
    ROB BOLTON, 
    Fantasy Columnist
    Bubba Watson, Brandt Snedeker,
    Charley Hoffman, Keegan Bradley
    Watson In the end, it will be just Sean and me. Or Sean, D.J. and me. Or just them. Probably just them. And maybe someone else.

    CHRIS DUNHAM, 
    Site Producer
    Brendon de Jonge, Bubba Watson,
    Brandt Snedeker, Andrew Svoboda
    De Jonge Both de Jonge and Svoboda could extend the streak of first-time winners here to five. Bubba is the guy who started the run and Snedeker is a microwave. He can heat up fast.
    BRYAN MULLEN,
    Site Producer
    Charley Hoffman, Hunter Mahan,
    Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson
    Hoffman Finished T7 here in 2013. Rested following previous event, a T19 at the Memorial Tournament.
    BILL COONEY, 
    Site Producer
    Jason Day, Bubba Watson,
    Brendon de Jonge, Keegan Bradley
    Day
    Strong week at the U.S. Open, meaning he's healthy again. De Jonge and Bradley makes lots of birdies.
    MIKE McALLISTER,
    Managing Editor
    Charley Hoffman, Ryan Moore,
    Freddie Jacobson, Bubba Watson
    Hoffman Hoffman has top-10s in his last two visits to TPC River Highlands and has nine top-25 finishes this season
    JOHN SWANTEK, 
    Host, LIVE@
    Ryan Moore, Keegan Bradley,
    Erik Compton, Hunter Mahan
    Moore Always knocking at the door at TPC River Highlands, with five top-15s and two career runners-up. This week, he walks through to the trophy ceremony.
    HELEN ROSS, 
    Chief of Correspondents

    Bubba Watson, Brandt Snedeker,
    Keegan Bradley, Brendon de Jonge
    Watson How can you not pick Watson? He's already won twice this year and he loves TPC River Highlands with one win and three other top six finishes in his last six starts there.
    BRIAN WACKER,

    Graham DeLaet, Hunter Mahan,
    Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson
    DeLaet A tremendous ball-striker who has a proven ability to go low is a perfect combination at what is typically a bit of a birdie-fest. DeLaet also finished third here a year ago.
    AMANDA BALIONIS,
    Host, Trending on TOUR
    Erik Compton, Ryan Moore,
    Charley Hoffman, Bubba Watson
    Compton Compton is coming off a T2 at the U.S. Open and has a ton of confidence in his game which bodes well for a birdie-fest in Cromwell.
