Expert Picks: HSBC Champions
Fantasy selections
Projected champion
Sean Martin
Martin Kaymer, Ryan Moore
Keegan Bradley, Sergio Garcia
Keegan Bradley
He's finished no worse than 16th in his past four TOUR starts and has a good record in these World Golf Championships.
Ryan Smithson
Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy
Ryan Moore, Jason Dufner

Rory McIlroy
Probably a dumb move to bench Phil, Keegan, but I am saving them. Look for Moore to stay hot on this type of course.

John Swantek
Keegan Bradley, Sergio Garcia
Rory McIlroy, Ian Poulter
Ian Poulter
Five of his 15 career worldwide wins have come in Asia and he owns a strong record at this event as the defending champion.
Bryan Mullen
Brandt Snedeker, Jimmy Walker
Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia
Sergio Garcia
Garcia, who's game appears to be in order, played well last week at the CIMB Classic, finishing T11 after opening with a 66.
Anne Detlefsen
Jordan Spieth, Jason Dufner
Luke Donald, Keegan Bradley
Keegan Bradley
Can't ignore Bradley's strong record at World Golf Championships.

Chris Dunham
Keegan Bradley, Phil Mickelson
Jordan Spieth, Lee Westwood
Jordan Spieth
No one can turn their game around faster than Phil but give me Spieth who finished 2013  with five top 20s (three were top 5s).
Mike McAllister
Keegan Bradley, Martin Kaymer
Hideki Matsuyama, Ryan Moore
Martin Kaymer
In four previous HSBC Champions appearances, Kaymer has three top-10s, including a win in 2011.
Helen Ross
Keegan Bradley, Henrik Stenson
Sergio Garcia, Graeme McDowell
Keegan Bradley
He didn't have a good weekend at CIMB but he plays well in big events and the caliber of this field should get his juices flowing.
Rob Bolton
Keegan Bradley, Rory McIlroy
Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose
Keegan Bradley
The goal here is to get on the bandwagon before McIlroy makes it rain again. His track record at Sheshan International is sterling.
John Schwarb
Keegan Bradley, Sergio Garcia
Justin Rose, Martin Kaymer
Keegan Bradley
Picked him to win last week, a brilliant call until the weekend. The game's there, just need four good rounds to end the drought.
D.J. Piehowski
Keegan Bradley, Henrik Stenson
Grahan DeLaet, Sergio Garcia
Keegan Bradley
It stung to go winless last season and he's working hard to pick off an early W. Here's a great chance after a nice week in Malaysia.

Bill Cooney
Keegan Bradley, Justin Rose
Martin Kaymer, Graham DeLaet
Graham DeLaet
Great ball-striker with pedestrian ball-striking stats during T7 at CIMB. Will only improve this week.

Amanda Balionis
Henrik Stenson, Jason Dufner
Keegan Bradley, Sergio Garcia
Henrik Stenson
A final round 65 at the BMW Masters shows that the recent FedExCup champ is far from being done in 2013.

Brian Wacker
Jordan Spieth, Ian Poulter
Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia
Ian Poulter
For starters, he won last year. For another, he tends to play well in WGC events. Expect the upward trend to continue.
