There are plenty of big names in this week's field at Memorial, from Rory McIlroy to Luke Donald to Phil Mickelson to Tiger Woods. And that isn't to mention Bubba Watson and Rickie Fowler, or defending champ Steve Stricker.

Clearly an impressive field, many paying their respects to Jack Nicklaus' signature PGA Tour tournament.

But, it is a name that isn't on the tip of your tongue that is playing solid golf and is an unsuspecting favorite for our fantasy panel: Bo Van Pelt. Van Pelt has a great track record at Muirfield Village, a pair of T-3s and a T-13 last year.

Others to keep your eye on? Hunter Mahan, Luke Donald and Justin Rose.

Last week, three of our panelists correctly selected Zach Johnson as the Colonial winner, including our clubhouse leader Jim McCabe, who now has a nearly $2 million lead. Jeff Rude and Alex Miceli are battling it out for second, while newcomer Ryan Lavner also took Johnson and made a big move.

Check out who they like this week at Muirfield Village:

Rank Winner Wild Card Last Week
Rude Hunter Mahan

Has won twice this year, game on rise, Muirfield Village suits him.

Kyle Stanley

Power game suited for this golf course.

Winner: Jason Dufner ($691,200); wild card: David Toms (MC). 2012 total: $6,864,306.

McCabe Bo Van Pelt

There's good history at Muirfield Village (T-13 a year ago, twice previously he was T-3) and as always with Van Pelt – or so it seems – there's good form to be happy with. He's been top 10 in five of his 11 stroke-play tournaments this year.)

Jonas Blixt

Has anyone noticed what he has done in his last four tournaments? T-13 in New Orleans, T-9 at the Wells Fargo, T-3 at the Nelson, and T-10 this past weekend at the Crowne Plaza. That warrants a serious long-shot vote for the young man from Sweden.

Winner: Zach Johnson ($1,152,000); wild card: Brian Harman (MC). 2012 total: $8,468,107.

Martin Luke Donald

Coming off victory at the BMW PGA and has a good track record at Muirfield Village. He's finished in the top 15 in his past three Memorial starts.

Ricky Barnes

Taking a flier here, but he's finished 18th and 3rd in his past two Memorial starts.

Winner: Zach Johnson ($1,152,000); wild card: Charlie Wi ($23,040). 2012 total: $4,942,714.

Miceli Bo Van Pelt

Playing well and has had some success at Muirfield Village. It's about time he finally wins one.

Brandt Jobe

This was the beginning of his run in 2011, why not in 2012?

Winner: Rickie Fowler ($216,960); wild card: Boo Weekley ($37,120). 2012 total: $6,806,461.

Ringler Jim Furyk

Quietly starting to be noticed this year. Recorded five top-11 finishes in 11 starts this year. And has played well at the Memorial Tournament with six career top 10s and a victory in 2002.

Harris English

Why not? English is getting comfortable on Tour and his current form is strong. Top-5 finish last week at Colonial.

Winner: Matt Kuchar ($47,360); wild card: Vijay Singh ($16,240). 2012 total: $4,519,452.

Lavner Justin Rose

Great record at Jack’s Place, winning here in 2010 with two other top 4s. Runner-up last week at Wentworth is further proof of his good form recently.

Jonathan Byrd

Three consecutive top-12 finishes on Tour, and he tied for seventh here a year ago.

Winner: Zach Johnson ($1,152,00); wild card: David Toms (MC). 2012 total: $1,822,845.
