Dustin Johnson at Hyundai. Tiger Woods at Torrey Pines. Phil Mickelson at TPC Scottsdale.

Three heavyweights have won this season.

And two will be in action this week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am - as Mickelson will attempt to defend his title, while Johnson hopes to continue his success on the majestic track.

Our panel of experts is decidedly in Mickelson's corner this week, with three picking Lefty to win in back-to-back weeks.

Johnson joins Padraig Harrington and Brandt Snedeker as favorites to watch this week.

As for our panel, Jeff Rude has reclaimed the top spot after picking both Snedeker and Scott Piercy at the Phoenix Open, with the pair of picks finishing second and third, respectively.

Here's a look at this week's picks:

Rank Winner Wild Card Last Week
Rude Phil Mickelson

Why not? He's riding high, coming off impressive victory at Waste Management Phoenix Open. Not only is confidence high with new driver and his putting, Mickelson has won the AT&T Pebble Beach tournament four times, including last year thanks to a closing 64.

Charlie Wi

Finished second at Pebble last year. He's a California guy who played at Cal and feels comfortable playing in NoCal. Has made cut in all four 2013 starts, with two finishes of 26th or better.

Winner: Brandt Snedeker ($669,600); wild card: Scott Piercy ($421,600). 2013 total: $2,572,874

McCabe Padraig Harrington

Possesses the most crucial ingredient for these long, and grueling pro-ams – he enjoys them and he cherishes his company. Found something in his game at the end of 2012 and it has carried over into 2013.

Bryce Molder

Like Harrington, he's coming off of a strong performance at TPC Scottsdale and at this event he's been top 10 twice in his last three starts.

Winner: Rickie Fowler (MC); wild card: Scott Piercy ($421,600). 2013 total: $1,555,585

Martin Dustin Johnson

Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson are the two favorites this week. I'm going to go with Johnson, who's won here twice and finished in the top 7 in four of five starts in this event. He was fifth here last year.

Aaron Baddeley

Back-to-back top-10s for Baddeley at Pebble Beach (T-6, 2011; 4th, 2012). Preceded last year's fourth-place finish with a T-65 in Phoenix. Guess what he finished at Phoenix this year? T-65. I smell a winner.

Winner: Nick Watney ($19,881); wild card: Charles Howell III ($27,944). 2013 total: $1,044,065

Ringler Phil Mickelson

Coming off a victory where he looked as comfortable as we have ever seen him and now he heads to a place where he is obviously comfortable competing. Mickelson is a four-time champion at Pebble Beach.

Kevin Stadler

Appears to be heading in right direction. T-11 last week and T-25 last year at Pebble Beach.

Winner: Nick Watney ($19,881); wild card: Charles Howell III ($27,944). 2013 total: $1,997,651

Miceli Phil Mickelson

Dominating performance in Phoenix, let's go for two. Why not?

Tom Gillis

Loves Pebble and took his first real vacation in two years last week.

Winner: Nick Watney ($19,881); wild card: Charles Howell III ($27,944). 2013 total: $472,225

Masuda Brandt Snedeker

Resume isn't fantastic at Pebble, but his play thus far in 2013 has been. Don't think Dustin Johnson or Phil Mickelson will get their second wins of the season before Sneds gets his first.

Charlie Wi

Contended at Pebble in 2012 before it became the Tiger and Phil Show. Let's hope he can keep it together on the weekend this time around.

Winner: Jason Dufner (MC); wild card: Aaron Baddeley ($12,958). 2013 total: $1,411,958
