Jeff Babineau

Best Bet: Jim Furyk

It’s been too long since this guy has been in the winner’s circle. Congressional is a perfect fit. U.S. Open venue meets U.S. Open-type player.

Ace Up My Sleeve: Nick O’Hern

Hey, this is the Tiger Slayer, correct? So here’s thinking Nick O’Hern goes to sleep at night thinking nothing would be better this week than to be on that final green on Sunday, Tiger slipping the winner’s blazer over his shoulders. Hey, we all have to dream, right?

Last Week's Best Bet: Hunter Mahan (T-4)

Last Week's Ace: Stewart Cink (MC)

Standing: 1st

Jim McCabe

Best Bet: Hunter Mahan

You have to figure he’s due to win, given that he’s gone T-14, T-6, T-4 the last three weeks and has had two strong finishes at Congressional the last two summers. Or, the pessimist in you could suggest he’s due to fall back, given that he’s made 21 consecutive cut. Here’s to be optimistic and yet another solid week from Mahan.

Ace Up My Sleeve: Bubba Watson

Big, difficult golf courses seem to bring out the best in him – T-7 at Torrey, T-2 at Quail Hollow, T-18 in the U.S. Open. Finished T-11 at Congressional a year ago.

Last Week's Best Bet: Steve Marino (MC)

Last Week's Ace: Webb Simpson (T-26)

Standing: 2nd

Sean Martin

Best Bet: Tiger Woods

He tied for sixth in the ‘07 AT&T National, and has seven consecutive top 10s this year. Woods has won his Chevron World Challenge four times during the offseason. No doubt he wants to add his AT&T National trophy to his mantle.

Ace Up My Sleeve: Bubba Watson

He won’t be considered a sleeper much longer. Watson, No. 53 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index, has now made five consecutive cuts, finishing in the top 25 in four of those starts.

Last Week's Best Bet: Bet: Hunter Mahan (T-4)

Last Week's Ace: Bubba Watson (T-14)

Standing: 3rd

Eric Soderstrom

Best Bet: Hunter Mahan

Considering I gained some decent ground last week by picking Kenny Perry on the same week five out of the seven Aces picked Mahan, I’m going to try and flip it around this week for a similar result. Mahan was a great pick last week (he tied for fourth and made a $248,000), but he could be a better one this week. He’s playing as well as anyone and finished T-12 last year.

Ace Up My Sleeve: Jason Day

After a couple weeks off, Day comes to Congressional on the heels of a pretty good start to the season, with only two missed cuts, two top-4s and no worse a finish than T-35 in eight made cuts.

Last Week's Best Bet: Kenny Perry (Won)

Last Week's Ace: Bubba Watson (T-14)

Standing: 4th

Lance Ringler

Best Bet: Tiger Woods

This may be the weakest field Tiger Woods will see all year, in fact it may be one of the weaker fields he has taken part of in a long time. You have to play Tiger this week.

Ace Up My Sleeve: Bubba Watson

We are going to stay on the Bubba Watson train this week. His form has been good and like he to cash a good check this week.

Last Week's Best Bet: Hunter Mahan (T-4)

Last Week's Ace: Bubba Watson (T-14)

Standing: 6th

Jeff Rude

Best Bet: Tiger Woods

Can a host win his own contest? Yes, the rules allow it. And the talent will see to it.

Ace Up My Sleeve: Michael Allen

Has fairways-greens game that works here. Confidence high. Won Senior PGA, played well last week at Hartford.

Last Week's Best Bet: Hunter Mahan (T-4)

Last Week's Ace: Brian Davis (WD)

Standing: 7th

Alex Miceli

Best Bet: Anthony Kim

Ace Up My Sleeve: Peter Lonard

Last Week's Best Bet: Hunter Mahan (T-4)

Last Week's Ace: David Duval (DNS)

Standing: 5th
