Alternate field events are never easy points and last week was no exception. This week’s is a full field event with many European players making their first US start of the year.
In spite of the impressive field, the A list is a little sparse. Four names stand out: Keegan Bradley, Spencer Levin, Kyle Stanley and Charles Howell III. All four has played very well to start the season. I think Bradley and Levin are playing hotter right now and I’ll take Bradley for the start.
There is a lot to choose from on the B List. Rory McIlroy is an easy pick. The guy finishes near the top in every tournament and will probably pick up the win after finishing 2nd at the Accenture Match Play. I’ll start Mark Wilson who has won here before and is off to a hot start. Tiger and Ryan Moore get the bench.
I’m not a big Ben Crane fan, but he has been great so far this season with 3 top 10s. PGA National sets up well for his game so he gets the start. Ricky Barnes is a good sleeper pick, but I’ll bench Charl Schwartzel.
Start: Keegan Bradley, Rory McIlroy, Mark Wilson, Ben Crane
Bench: Spencer Levin, Tiger Woods, Ryan Moore, Charl Schwartzel
