    SEAN MARTIN,
    Events Editor
    Keegan Bradley, Rory McIlroy
    Justin Rose, Adam Scott
    McIlroy Did you watch The Open Championship, and the Bridgestone Invitational?
    D.J. PIEHOWSKI,
    Digital Producer
    Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia
    Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson
    McIlroy The year's final major is one of my last chances to close the gap on Martin. I'm using some major horses to do so.
    ROB BOLTON, 
    Fantasy Columnist
    Keegan Bradley, Sergio Garcia
    Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott
    McIlroy The plan is working. Going for my third consecutive win. Love the firepower and current form of the entire set. Coming after you, D.J.
    MIKE McALLISTER,
    Managing editor
    Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia
    Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose
    McIlroy Tried to talk myself out of Rory using the won't-win-three-straight argument. But that seems a rather flimsy excuse, doesn't it?
    BILL COONEY,
    Site Producer
    Keegan Bradley, Rory McIlroy
    Justin Rose, Adam Scott
    McIlroy Simply put, Rory is dialed in. Maybe the bigger question is, 'How many will he win by?' Long ball-strikers course at Valhalla, the reason I'm taking the four thoroughbreds.
    RYAN SMITHSON, 
    Site Producer
    Jim Furyk, Sergio Garcia
    Marc Leishman, Rory McIlroy
    McIlroy Rory's never seen Valhalla, but it wasn't like he had a lot of looks at Hoylake, either. Hitting driver 350 and straight works anywhere.
    ANNE DETLEFSEN,
    Site Producer
    Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia
    Martin Kaymer, Rory McIlroy
    Fowler Masters: T5, U.S. Open: T2, Open Championship: T2. This week he gets the W.
    BRYAN MULLEN, 
    Site Producer
    Jim Furyk, Rory McIlroy
    Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott
    Mickelson Following his final-round 62 at Firestone, Lefty sounded super confident about his game entering the season's final major.
    CHRIS DUNHAM, 
    Site Producer
    Jim Furyk, Charl Schwartzel
    Adam Scott, Brandt Snedeker
    Snedeker No Rory? No problem! My season couldn't get any worse. Give me Snedeker, who really wants it, and Tweeted that this is as close to a home major as he'll get.
    HELEN ROSS, 
    Chief of Correspondents
    Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia
    Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson
    McIlroy Three straight wins is a big ask. But it's hard to imagine a more confident or complete player right now.
    JOHN SWANTEK, 
    Host, LIVE@
    Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia
    Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott
    McIlroy Thought about taking him off the board, then realized I would lose too much ground to everyone else who picked him after he wins.
    BRIAN WACKER, 
    Staff writer

    Keegan Bradley, Rory McIlroy
    Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott
    McIlroy Golf is a lot easier when you drive it as far and as straight as McIlroy has been of late. No one is playing better at the moment.
    AMANDA BALIONIS,
    Host, Trending on TOUR
    Keegan Bradley, Rickie Fowler
    Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose
    Bradley Ryder Cup. That is all.
