The 5 round Bob Hope Classic starts today. Played over 4 courses this tournament will be a grind due to the longer rounds played with amateur partners. But who can complain, the weather looks amazing for all the days (wish I was there). For those playing the Sony Open last week not much time between tournaments so that's why I look for a guy with experience at this venue to win this year. Look for guys who hit lots of greens and putt as well, lots of birdies will have to be made to win. Par will seem like a bogey.
Charley Hoffman - I like what I saw from Hoffman in Hawaii except
for one round. Like his combination of GIR% and putting plus he's won
here before. Comfort!
- Matt Kuchar - This guy is a top 10 magnet and hasn't let up this year. Pulling off a T2 last year here. He can win this week hands down.
Chad Campbell - Chad has a good GIR% and knows how to win here.
DJ Trahan - Missed cut last week but great record here(no missed cuts since win here)has him on my team.
Bill Haas -Last years winner always seems to make the cut. Hits it long and straight, great GIR%.
Bubba Watson - Can make lots of birdies/eagles would love to improve on his T2 last year.
Ryan Moore - A guy that can go low and make lots of birdies. First event of the season with his new sponsor Adams Golf. Look for him to come out pin hunting.
Bench - Weir - Has something to prove even if he won't admit it. Four top 10s here including a win. If he plays from the fairway there's no better player with the wedges. First event of the season will get him in play in the second or third round.
