    Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson
    Graeme McDowell, Charl Schwartzel
    Furyk Great track record at this event and having a great season. Only thing missing is a win.
    Digital Producer
    Jerry Kelly, Hunter Mahan
    Charl Schwartzel, Brandt Snedeker
    Mahan I know everyone will have Furyk, but overwhelming favorites seem to struggle this year. I'm taking a huge flier on Mahan, who HAS to turn around his season at some point.

    Furyk Omitting DJ and Kuchar due to starts (3 each) and need countermeasures to consistently convert if I’m going to successfully defend my title.
    Site Producer
    Graham DeLaet, Luke Donald
    Matt Kuchar, Graeme McDowell
    Kuchar Kuchar didn't have a great week at the Open, but he should be back in top 10-mode in Canada, where he was runner-up last year.
    Site Producer
    Luke Donald, Jim Furyk
    Graeme McDowell, Charl Schwartzel
    Schwartzel Schwartzel's having a big year on TOUR and it's time for him to win again. Putter has been holding him back, though.
    Site Producer
    Graham DeLaet, Luke Donald
    Jim Furyk, Graeme McDowell
    DeLaet Still hard to believe he's searching for his maiden TOUR victory, but hardly a better way to break the ice than a win on his homeland's soil.

    McDowell Having won the RBC Heritage in 2013, this would complete the RBC Slam for G-Mac. Oh, and he's playing pretty well at the moment.
    Site Producer
    Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson
    Matt Kuchar, Charl Schwartzel
    Furyk A no-brainer and as obvious as it gets. Furyk had a T12 at the U.S. Open and was solo fourth at The Open Championship. Has won this event twice.
    Site Producer
    Aaron Baddeley, Jim Furyk
    Dustin Johnson, Charl Schwartzel
    Baddeley's two top-5 finishes this year have come on courses under 7,000 yards. He's second on TOUR (behind G-Mac) in strokes gained-putting.
    Host, LIVE@
    Graham DeLaet, Brad Fritsch
    David Hearn, Mike Weir
    DeLaet One of these Canadians has to be the first to end the 60 year draught, right? I'll go with the best of the bunch at the moment.

    Furyk I like the way he played at Royal Liverpool, the confidence he displayed and his record at the RBC Canadian Open.

    Graeme McDowell, William McGirt
    McDowell A good company man, he has a history of playing well in RBC events. This one isn't any different, and McDowell comes in with a win and two top 10s in his last three starts across the pond.
    Host, Trending on TOUR
    Luke Donald, Jim Furyk
    Dustin Johnson, Graeme McDowell
    Furyk He's one of the most consistent players of all-time and has a nice history in this event.
