WEEK 27, MATCH 1: Jim McCabe ($6,735,611; 11-13-2) vs. Jeff Babineau ($4,885,914; 11-11-4)

JIM McCABE

Greenbrier Classic

Site: White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.

Courses: The Greenbrier, Old White Course (7,041 yards, par 70)

Purse: $9 million

Winner’s share: $1.09 million

Best bet: Steve Marino.Though 2010 hasn’t been quite as consistently good for Marino, he still shows a lot of game and makes you believe he’s not that far away from winning.

Ace up my sleeve: Charlie Wi. His last four starts have been pretty solid – two fourths, a T-15 and a T-21. He’s another guy who appears poised to win.

JEFF BABINEAU

Best bet: Sergio Garcia. You remember him, right? Well, he’s been spotted recently, playing under the radar but decently both at the U.S. Open (T-22) and British Open (T-14). If he can perform that well on major courses, he’ll have a better time at the Greenbrier. And he’d better do something pretty quickly or risk being left off Capt. Monty’s European loaded Ryder Cup squad. This is the summer of Spain (Rafa at Wimbledon, Spain at the World Cup), so what say you, El Nino?

Ace up my sleeve: Jeff Overton. He has $2.4 million in earnings this season, and four top 3s since New Orleans. At the British Open, his last start, he finished T-11 and missed an estimated 15 putts in the 15-foot range. So it’s time for this young up-and-comer to get the one thing missing from his resume: A Tour victory.




WEEK 27, MATCH 2: Sean Martin ($6,598,919; 13-12-1) vs. Lance Ringler ($4,537,593; 13-12-1)

SEAN MARTIN

Best bet: Matt Kuchar. Kuchar is a good bet to cash a good check each week. In 18 events, he has seven top-10s and 12 top-25s. After a few lean weeks, I’m going to go with the safe bet in Kuchar.

Ace up my sleeve: Charlie Wi. In his past three events, Wi has finished fourth, 15th and fourth. The Greenbrier is a short layout that demands placement over power, which should benefit Wi.

LANCE RINGLER

Best bet: Matt Kuchar. He was the top player according to the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index in last week’s field and he did not dissapoint posting a T-4. Again this week, Kuchar is the top player in the field and there is no reason to shy away from him at the Greenbrier Classic.

Ace up my sleeve: Jeff Overton. Sooner or later Overton is going to win on the PGA Tour. Overton has recorded six top 12s in his last nine starts.
