The top golfers assemble at WGC Bridgestone in Akron Ohio where Shane Lowry will defend his title. Of the top players only Rory McIlroy is not in attendance and this is a tough one to call. Do you go with the guys who played well in the US Open or with someone more rested? A back to form Jim Furyk must be considered here if his US Open exploits haven’t worn him out.
He has been out of the game for a while but played beautifully at Oakmont. Others with course form include Justin Rose and Rickie Fowler while at a bigger price, the Swede David Lingmerth at a big price can go well. This is a unique event in that it has no cut so even if your player is a few behind he could still go low at the weekend and challenge.
