Sleeper picks: AT&T National
David Hearn ... Enjoying a quietly productive run of late. After sharing 21st place at Memorial, he finished T18 in Memphis and T21 at Merion. His game improves as his ball nears the hole. Sits 170th in total driving (117th in fairways hit), 91st in greens in regulation and 23rd in strokes gained-putting. Also 54th in adjusted scoring and T10 in par-4 scoring. Getting his first look at Congressional.
Richard H. Lee ... When you rank 26th in fairways hit, 48th in greens in regulation and 13th in strokes gained-putting, you're going to play quite a bit on the weekend. Case in point, he's 12-for-17 with two top 10s and another three top 25s this season to rank 75th in FedExCup points. Shared 30th at the Travelers where he spun 4-under 66s in the first and third rounds and ranked fifth in strokes gained-putting for the week. Tops on the PGA TOUR in par-3 scoring average (2.95).
Greg Owen ... Arrives with the confidence of having put four rounds together at TPC River Highlands en route to a share of 24th place. His putter remains his weakness, but when par is a welcome score, sharpshooters are often rewarded. Tied for 17th at last year's AT&T National. Ranked T9 for the week in total driving, T3 in greens in regulation and first in par-3 scoring.
Brendon Todd ...Went in the books as the guy that replaced Justin Rose, who withdrew on Monday to recharge his batteries. Todd earned conditional status this season by $165 over Billy Hurley III, who coincidentally recorded his career-best finish at last year's AT&T National. Todd has fared well in limited playing time, survived four of five cuts, the last two of which going for a top 20. If he logged enough rounds to qualify for official rankings, he'd sit 31st in adjusted scoring and first in scrambling. He's also 6-for-6 on the Web.com Tour this season with a victory and ranks ninth on its money list.
Brandt Jobe ... While he's yet to record a top 20 this season, he's still within shouting distance of the bubble for the FedExCup Playoffs at 138th in points. Tied for 34th place at last year's AT&T National and converted on all 46 chances from 7 feet and in. Also posted a T23 at the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional.
