    McIlroy  Did you watch The Open Championship?
    D.J. PIEHOWSKI,
    Digital Producer
    Martin Kaymer, Justin Rose
    Adam Scott, Tiger Woods
    Kaymer
    With all the spotlight on Scott, McIlroy and, of course, Tiger, don't overlook the guy who's already dominated two difficult courses.

    Fantasy Columnist
    Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar
    Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott
    Scott I may need to replicate my 1-2 punch in Canada every week to fulfill a respectable title defense. Not worried about savings starts now.
    MIKE McALLISTER,
    Managing editor
    Jason Dufner, Rickie Fowler
    Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott
    Dufner Finished top-10 in two WGC starts this year and seems to have Firestone figured out.
    BILL COONEY,
    Site Producer
    Keegan Bradley, Justin Rose
    Adam Scott, Tiger Woods
    Scott Quietly the world's top-ranked player, probably just the way he likes it. Saving McIlroy for PGA, FedExCup Playoffs.
    RYAN SMITHSON, 
    Site Producer
    Jim Furyk, Zach Johnson
    Justin Rose, Bubba Watson
    Furyk How good has Furyk's year been? His fifth in FedExCup standings -- without a win. I am using him every week from here on out.
    ANNE DETLEFSEN,
    Site Producer
    Keegan Bradley, Rickie Fowler
    Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods
    Fowler Rickie has thrived at the majors this year with two runner-ups -- could be primed to add a WGC title to his resume.
    BRYAN MULLEN, 
    Site Producer
    Jason Dufner, Harris English
    Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott
    Dufner Expectations were very high for Dufner in 2013-14, and although it's been mostly quiet for him, Firestone will be his awakening.
    CHRIS DUNHAM, 
    Site Producer
    Jim Furyk, Jordan Spieth
    Steve Stricker, Tiger Woods
    Woods This is the second-longest victory drought of Woods career, but he has more Bridgestone wins than every other person to ever play combined.  
    HELEN ROSS, 
    Chief of Correspondents
    Rickie Fowler, Jim Furyk
    Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott
    Fowler He's playing too well not to step up in a big event sooner rather than later. This could be the one.
    JOHN SWANTEK, 
    Host, LIVE@
    Keegan Bradley, Rickie Fowler
    Jim Furyk, Tiger Woods
    Fowler His record in the most important tournaments of the season speaks for itself. Will shine on another big stage this week.
    BRIAN WACKER, 
    Staff writer

    Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose
    Adam Scott, Tiger Woods
    McIlroy He tends to play well in bunches and in case you missed The Open Championship McIlroy is playing the best golf he has in a while.
    AMANDA BALIONIS,
    Host, Trending on TOUR
    Rickie Fowler, Martin Kaymer
    Jimmy Walker, Tiger Woods
    Fowler Fowler has specifically said he is gearing his game up for majors. Coming off his runner up finish at The Open, and one week before the PGA Championship, Fowler's game is geared up for the win.
