Matt
WEIBRING
The former Georgia Tech star is on a roll in his last four tournaments. He's had a tie for 15th, a tie for fourth, a tie for 10th and at the Mylan Classic two weeks ago he tied for second. He's crept his way up to 39th on the money list and with another good week could crack the top 25.
Brad
FRITSCH
He's another player making a run at the top 25 on the money list. He's made six straight cuts and he also tied for second at the Mylan Classic. The Canadian is ranked No. 26 and is picking the right time to play well. The 34-year-old former player at Campbell has never played a season on the PGA TOUR.
Ben
KOHLES
With two wins in four starts on the Web.com Tour the former Virginia All-America has had a great rookie season. He's coming off a fifth place at the Mylan Classic and is third on the Tour's money list. In his 16 competitive rounds on the Web.com Tour this season he's an astounding 57 under par.
Jason
KOKRAK
He played on the PGA TOUR this season but comes back as the defending champion of this week's tournament. The long-hitting Kokrak made 10 cuts in 23 PGA TOUR tournaments. When he won last year in Boise he was the last player to make the field getting in as an alternate two days before the first round.
Casey
WITTENBERG
The Tour's leading money has been very consistent making his last six cuts which includes a tie for 19th at the Mylan Classic. He has won twice this season and is third in scoring average (69.50) on tour and 13th in the all-around category. Hes finished in the top 10 five times this season.
