Expert Picks: OHL Classic at Mayakoba
Fantasy selections
Projected champion
Sean Martin
Briny Baird, Brian Gay,
Charles Howell III, Daniel Summerhays

Daniel Summerhays
He's made seven consecutive cuts, including last week's T-10, and finished fifth at Mayakoba last year.

John Swantek
Brian Gay, Ryan Moore,
Matt Every, John Senden

Brian Gay
Coming off T4 in Sea Island, travels to another course perfectly suited for his game, as he displayed in taking the title in 2008.
Ryan Smithson
Tim Clark, Matt Every
Ryan Moore, Camilo Villegas
Matt Every
Matt Every is a highly underrated player who thrives on the shorter courses. A must-start this week.

Anne Detlefsen
Jason Kokrak, J.J. Henry,
Morgan Hoffmann, Michael Putnam
Jason Kokrak
The 2011 grad has two top-12 finishes in three starts.

Chris Dunham
Briny Baird, Matt Every,
Charles Howell III, Jeff Overton
Briny Baird
I've been pressured to make this pick again. Hopefully Baird goes the way of David Toms after THE PLAYERS in ‘11 and gets a bounceback victory.

Bryan Mullen
Charley Hoffman, Charles Howell III,
Ryan Moore, Chris Stroud
Charles Howell III
Nice showing last year with a T16. Has a T5, T7 and T27 in last three starts in 2013-14.

Helen Ross
Brian Gay, Robert Karlsson,
Tim Clark, J.J. Henry
Brian Gay
Former champ at El Camaleon who prospers on courses that reward good play tee-to-green. He's got momentum after last week's T4, too.
John Schwarb
Briny Baird, Tommy Gainey,
John Huh, Chris Stroud
Chris Stroud
Was T3 at CIMB last month and T5 last year at Mayakoba. That's enough for me in a wide-open week.

Rob Bolton
Brian Gay, Briny Baird,
Ryan Moore, Kevin Stadler
Brian Gay
There’s room on the Baird Bandwagon that @ChrisDunhamJr is driving, so I’m hopping aboard. Moore won on similar greens just three weeks ago.
Brian Wacker
Matt Every, John Senden,
Brian Gay, Tim Clark
Matt Every
He's coming off a T7 at Sea Island, where he closed with a 66. He also tied for third two years ago in Mexico.
D.J. Piehowski
Brian Gay, Charles Howell III,
John Senden, Chris Stroud
Charles Howell III
A triple on Sunday short-changed me on last week's Howell pick, so I'll go back to him here, where's he's top-20'd the past three years.

Mike McAllister
Greg Chalmers, Tim Clark,
J.J. Henry, Scott Brown
Greg Chalmers
Last week, Briny Baird nearly won his first TOUR event in 365 starts. Why not Chalmers, a terrific putter, in his 338th start this week?
Bill Cooney
Tim Clark, Brian Gay,
Ryan Moore, Scott Brown
Tim Clark
Looks like the Briny Baird bandwagon is full -- at least for now. Meanwhile, Tim Clark has to win again eventually and -- he's had 10 straight seasons with a runner-up -- was T2 last week.

Amanda Balionis
Brian Gay, Matt Every,
Kevin Stadler, Tim Clark
Brian Gay
The 2008 winner was in contention last week until late Sunday. Past success + present momentum = winner winner.
