Are you ready for two consecutive weeks of the world's best teeing it up against each other?

With the top 14 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings playing this week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitaitonal, it will be a good test prior to the last major of the year, the PGA Championship next week at Oak Hill.

It'll come as no surprise that Tiger Woods is the favorite this week for our panel, considering he has won the event seven times.

Yet, he isn't a unanimous choice, as Steve Stricker and Adam Scott both are receiving some love.

As for our panel, Jeff Rude and Jim McCabe both correctly predicted Brandt Snedeker as the winner last week in Canada, with McCabe regaining second place in the season-long standings.

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

Rank Winner Wild Card Last Week
Rude Adam Scott

Led Open Championship on last nine. Feels great about his game. Has won at Firestone.

Ryan Moore

Contended at Open till bad last day. Several good showings last three months.

Winner: Brandt Snedeker ($1,008,000); wild card: Hunter Mahan (WD). 2013 total: $8,203,940

McCabe Steve Stricker

Well rested and that seems to be when he plays his best. He's been T-6, T-9, 14th, and T-2 in his last four visits to Firestone CC, so clearly he's got a feel for the place.

Branden Grace

Strictly a hunch. Tosses in some impressive rounds, but needs to sustain the roll.

Winner: Brandt Snedeker ($1,008,000) ; wild card: Bud Cauley (MC). 2013 total: $9,084,088

Ringler Tiger Woods

If you can pick Woods this week, why wouldn’t you? Seven-time winner here and, ranked No. 1 in the world and form is good.

Kevin Streelman

Having a breakout year and a perfect week to quietly finish well to add to his great season.

Winner: Matt Kuchar ($369,600); wild card: Hunter Mahan (WD). 2013 total:$10,024,698

Masuda Tiger Woods

Wrote Adam Scott at first. Talked myself out of it. Phil Mickelson next. Didn't feel right. So I'll go with Woods, who has won four times this season. Boring, I know.

Nicolas Colsaerts

Not many beyond the top 50 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings, but the bomber is enjoying a solid year. This is a gut pick.

Winner: Charl Schwartzel ($39,760); wild card: Graeme McDowell ($10,752). 2013 total: $8,720,938
