The Greenbrier Classic will have plenty of buzz this week, mainly due to Tiger Woods' first appearance at the third-year event in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.

But it isn't just the appearance but also the fact that Woods has won three times on the PGA Tour in 2012, including last weekend's masterful play at the AT&T National to clear the field at Congressional by two shots.

Is Tiger back to being Tiger?

While only time will tell, Woods will have plenty of top-notch competition this week with Phil Mickelson, Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk, Webb Simpson, Keegan Bradley and Dustin Johnson in the field.

Woods is the overwhelming favorite from our fantasy panel, while Stricker also received some love from a pair of our experts.

As for our panel, Jim McCabe has taken a commanding lead after picking Woods to win at Congressional.

Here is a look at their picks this week:

Rank Winner Wild Card Last Week
Rude Tiger Woods

Winner three times this year, he's Tiger Woods again.

Bill Haas

He lost a playoff there last year.

Winner: Hunter Mahan ($195,000); wild card: Ben Curtis ($31,444). 2012 total: $7,295,290.

McCabe Steve Stricker

When going low is part of the blueprint for success, few meet the challenge like Stricker, because he can get on a torrid roll with the putter. Plus, he's coming off of a two-week break and he seems to always play well when rested.

Jimmy Walker

All he's done in the brief history of this tournament is finishing T-4, T-4 and post sub-70 scores in seven of his eight rounds.

Winner: Tiger Woods ($1,170,000); wild card: Ryan Palmer ($114,750). 2012 total: $10,005,394.

Martin Tiger Woods

The Tour's only three-time winner this year. Winner in two of his past three starts. He's getting back to the point where he's the favorite every time he tees it up.

Jimmy Walker

Had two good rounds at AT&T National, and has a good record here, finishing fourth in both 2010 and 2011.

Winner: Jim Furyk ($31,444); wild card: J.B. Holmes ($12,025). 2012 total: $5,169,560.

Miceli Steve Stricker

After some time off, he should have his putter working and has a good track record after taking time off.

Stuart Appleby

Showed some signs recently and has good vibes from his last win in West Virginia.

Winner: Did not pick; wild card: DNP. 2012 total: $6,939,162.
