Ernie Els – is already a two time winner this season. He won the World Golf Championships-CA Championship and most recently the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard. He was also on the winning side of the Tavistock Cup squad. He finished T-5 at the Farmers Insurance Open and T-10 at the Northern Trust Open. He’s made all seven cuts entered.

Phil Mickelson – has been a letdown this season, so I'm reluctant to pick him again. But then again it’s Phil we’re talking about. He’s made all six cuts entered but has only one Top 10 finish which was at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He’s currently 44th in FedEX Cup standings. Phil Mickelson is listed at 12/1 odds to win.

Paul Casey – The defending champ has four top 10s finishes in four starts and is looking to keep that hot streak alive heading to the Masters. If he doesn't win, he'll definitely be in the top 10. He finished second at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, T-4 at the The Honda Classic, World Golf Championships-CA Championship and T-10 at the SBS Championship. To say he’s due for a win is an understatement. Paul Casey is listed at 12/1 odds to win.
