Tournament host and defending champion Tiger Woods isn't in the field, but there are a slew of big names that intrigue our fantasy panel at the AT&T National this week.

Jim Furyk, Rickie Fowler, Billy Horschel and Brandt Snedeker are all in the field, but none register as favorites at Congressional.

Adam Scott is receiving plenty of love from the panel, being the top-ranked golfer in the field and enjoying some recent success at the track. Fellow Aussie Jason Day is also a man to watch, while our Jeff Rude is picking Hunter Mahan for the second consecutive ...

Excuse the golf world as it recovers from its U.S. Open hangover, but it will need to shake off the cobwebs quickly as an impressive field will tee it up this week at the Travelers Championship.

Justin Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champ, is the biggest name in a field that includes the likes of Lee Westwood, Jason Dufner, Ian Poulter and Webb Simpson.

It is Hunter Mahan that a pair of our fantasy panelists believe will recover from his late fall down the leaderboard at Merion to capture his second Travelers title, while pals Rickie Fowler and ...

While much of the golf world begins to focus on the U.S. Open at Merion next week, part of that field will use the FedEx St. Jude Classic as a warmup for the year's second major.

This week's field includes the likes of Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Ian Poulter - none of whom registers as a favorite with our fantasy panel.

Plenty of love is being shown for Freddie Jacobson as the winner, while Brandt Snedeker and Charles Howell III also pick up votes of confidence. Robert Karlsson was selected by two panelists as an underdog pick ...

Tiger Woods will defend his title at the Memorial Tournament starting May 30.
Tiger Woods will defend his title at the Memorial Tournament starting May 30.

Four wins in 2013. Five wins at Memorial.

So it is no shock that Tiger Woods would register as the favorite this week at the house that Jack Nicklaus built.

A year ago, Woods made a back-nine surge to win at Muirfield, picking up his second win of 2012 to that point.

This season, Woods has won four of his seven PGA Tour starts.

It won't be a runaway for Woods, as he will face off against 36 of the top 50 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings, including 15 of the top 20. One of those is Matt Kuchar ...

Zach Johnson celebrates on the 18th green with his caddie Damon Green after his one-stroke victory after the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial at the Colonial Country Club. Green's father passed away last week.

With much of the European contingent overseas at Wentworth this week, the field is wide open at Colonial, leading to an array of potential favorites.

With 22 of the top 50 in our Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings teeing it up this week, all four of our panelists have chosen a different favorite.

Defending champion Zach Johnson, perennial contender Jim Furyk, 2011 Masters champion Charl Schwartzel and unheralded Chris Kirk are all players to watch this week.

As for our panel, Lance Ringler keeps his lead over Nick Masuda, while Jim McCabe had the best pick of the week with Marc Leishman ...

Jason Day

A week after all but one of the top 50 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings played in the Players Championship, only 19 will tee it up this week at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

But there are still plenty of big names to follow in Texas, including defending champion Jason Dufner, Matt Kuchar, Charl Schwartzel and Dustin Johnson.

But none of those four registers on our panel's list of favorites this week, as Jason Day and Jordan Spieth are receiving plenty of love.

Day won this event in 2010 and has shown plenty of signs that his game is ...

Luke Donald at the Masters

In what many consider to be golf's "fifth major," there is no question that the quality of the field at the Players Championship will present many different opinions on who the favorite at Sawgrass might be this week.

Of course, there is Tiger Woods and his three victories in 2013. There is also Adam Scott and his Masters victory. This is not to mention defending champ Matt Kuchar.

Yet, none of those players registers on the radar of our panel of experts this week.

Luke Donald is the most popular pick, mostly due to his short-game prowess. Lee Westwood ...

While the likes of Ian Poulter, Dustin Johnson and Vijay Singh have all withdrawn from the Wells Fargo Championship this week, there are still plenty of big names to make this week in Charlotte a marquee stop on the PGA Tour.

Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia all return to action, while Rickie Fowler is back to defend his only career Tour title.

Our panel is split this week on a clear frontrunner, with Webb Simpson the only player being chosen by more than one of our experts. Westwood, Garcia and McIlroy are also favorites.

Many of the first-day headlines at the Zurich Classic will be focused on a certain 14-year-old that will be teeing it up at TPC Louisiana.

But Tianlang Guan aside, there are plenty of big names that are looking for their first title of 2013.

Jason Dufner is the defending champ, but has yet to record a top 10 this season. Rickie Fowler is nearly a year removed from his first career victory. And then you have the most popular pick this week in Justin Rose, who was a favorite at the Masters before fading away on the weekend.

Welcome to the calm after the storm -- better known as the RBC Heritage, the tournament that follows the craziness of Augusta National this season.

While the likes of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson take a week off, there are plenty of big names in this field.

Ten of the top-25 players in our Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings will tee it up this week, including Luke Donald, Jason Day, Jason Dufner and Matt Kuchar.

But it is another player that is catching the eye of our fantasy panel, that being Brandt Snedeker.

The defending FedEx Cup champ faltered on Sunday ...

While plenty of attention will shift to Augusta National as the week goes on, there are a handful of the world's best teeing it up at the Valero Texas Open this week.

Rory McIlroy decided to get in a last-second start prior to the Masters to get in competitive rounds as he looks to win his third major title. McIlroy will actually be paired with Matt Kuchar and Jordan Spieth in the first two rounds.

Kuchar is the only player in that grouping that registers as a favorite among our fantasy panel, with Jeff Rude taking the defending Players ...

Rory McIlroy, it's your turn.

Tiger Woods regained the World No. 1 ranking Monday with his win at Bay Hill, but McIlroy could put the focus back on himself with a win this week at the Shell Houston Open.

McIlroy showed signs of coming out of his funk over the weekend at Doral and says he got some good time in on the range during the past two weeks.

For our Jim McCabe, he believes the Ulsterman will win this week to set up plenty of hysteria for Augusta National.

Keegan Bradley is the more popular choice this week ...

Tiger Woods reacts to his five-shot victory in the 2012 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club and Lodge.

ORLANDO, Fla. - It should come as no shock that Tiger Woods is the overwhelming favorite at this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Seven wins on the Bay Hill track make that pretty easy pickings for our fantasy panel. Woods' two 2013 victories help his cause, too.

But, let's say you don't think Tiger will be hanging with Arnie on the 18th green come Sunday. Who else might be a good bet?

Two of our panelists didn't go with Tiger, opting instead for Phil Mickelson and Graeme McDowell, both of whom have proven success living in Tiger's ...

After the excitement of last week's WGC-Cadillac Championship, there isn't as much focus on this week's PGA Tour event in Tampa, Fla.

But there should be. With the likes of Luke Donald, Adam Scott, Matt Kuchar and Louis Oosthuizen teeing it up at the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook, the field is quite impressive.

Yet, it is someone who has dipped in the OWGR (and Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings) that is getting love from our fantasy panel this week: Retief Goosen.

While considered an underdog, Goosen has made all three cuts this season, including a T-9 at Pebble Beach ...

The stars will be out this week, with the top 13 players in our Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings in the field at the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral.

Rory McIlroy will return to the course for the first time since walking off of it at the Honda Classic, while Tiger Woods will look to add his second PGA Tour title of the season.

Our fantasy panel is a bit divided on its favorite this week, although South African Charl Schwartzel is garnering the most attention after a solid start to his season.

Others to keep an eye on: Luke Donald and Matt ...
