    SEAN MARTIN,
    Events Editor
    K.J. Choi, Jason Day
    Justin Rose, Brandt Snedeker
    Snedeker His T11 at Travelers made it seem like back problems from Pinehurst were behind him. Finished in top 11 in four of five starts at Congressional.
    D.J. PIEHOWSKI,
    Digital Producer
    Keegan Bradley, Jason Day
    J.B. Holmes, Justin Rose
    Rose Rose and Bradley are two great drivers of the ball, always helpful at brawny Congressional. We've all still got plenty of Day starts left, which I'm not complaining about.
    RYAN SMITHSON, 
    Site Producer
    Jason Day, Brendon de Jonge
    Bill Haas, Tiger Woods
    Day I have nine picks left for Tiger -- might as well use them all, right? Same thing with Day. Haas is having his usual consistent season -- great for gamers.

    Jason Day, Brandt Snedeker
    Jordan Spieth, Brendon Todd
    Day Day (left thumb) and Sneds (knee) are on the rise following injuries. Still have half of my starts for Spieth. Todd can’t miss lately.
    ANNE DETLEFSEN,
    Site Producer
    Keegan Bradley, Jason Day
    Michael Putnam, Brandt Snedeker
    Day Leaving Tiger on the bench in favor of another in his group for the first two rounds: Jason Day.
    CHRIS DUNHAM, 
    Site Producer
    K.J. Choi, Jason Day
    Jason Dufner, Brandt Snedeker
    Day It's time for Jason Day, my preseason FedExCup pick, to really assert himself as one of the game's best. With him I'll play two hot hands and Dufner, who won my mental coin flip with Nick Watney.
    BRYAN MULLEN,
    Site Producer
    Kevin Chappell, Jason Day, Morgan Hoffmann, Justin Rose
    Rose A winner here two years ago, Rose already has five top 10s this season but is still seeking his first victory of 2013-14.
    MIKE McALLISTER,
    Managing Editor
    Jordan Spieth, Brendan Steele
    Brendon Todd, Gary Woodland
    Spieth Spieth has struggled on the weekends -- he ranks T-105 in Rd. 3 scoring average and T-66 in Rd. 4 -- but hopefully he solves that issue at Congressional.
    BILL COONEY, 
    Site Producer
    Jason Day, Justin Rose
    Brandt Snedeker, Gary Woodland
    Snedeker Looking good -- T9 at U.S. Open, T11 at Travelers in previous two starts. Feeling even better -- Vanderbilt, his alma mater, is on the verge of winning the College World Series.
    JOHN SWANTEK, 
    Host, LIVE@
    Aaron Baddeley, Keegan Bradley
    K.J. Choi, Billy Horschel
    Bradley A strong showing at the US Open (T4) followed by an up and down week in Hartford. I think he's really close to busting out and this tough course suits him perfectly.
    HELEN ROSS, 
    Chief of Correspondents

    Jason Day, Justin Rose
    Brandt Snedeker, Jordan Spieth
    Day My top two picks will be part of the sideshow that is Tiger Woods' return to competition on Thursday and Friday. I expect both to thrive in that pairing but Day gets the nod over four rounds.

    Bill Haas, Justin Rose
    Jordan Spieth, Gary Woodland
    Woodland He's long and hits a lot of greens - a good combination for Congressional, where he shot 62 and finished T16 a year ago.
    AMANDA BALIONIS,
    Host, Trending on TOUR
    Bud Cauley, Jason Day
    Billy Hurley III, Justin Rose
    Day He's shown no signs of rust since returning from injury with a T4 at the U.S. Open and a top-20 finish last week after a final-round 65.
