It's tough to say Tiger given the injury. I'm not sure.

I think Sergio has a pretty good shot... until sunday anyway.

Pretty impressive start for Boo Weekley.

I didn't even realize this was next week until today. I'm pretty excited.

Tiger won't win I don't think...it's too hard to come back from that and have the same swing.

Old cliche is that the guys who keep it straight will do well and it's true. Zach Johnson, Justin Rose..

But i'm going Furyk. Four top-10s this year and it sets up well for him.

He's going to be good for a long time. Good to see him win. There are a lot of good young guys on tour right now.

Incredibly dominant win. Congratulations to Rory. He seems to be a really good young guy and potentially a great player.

Hell of a player. Obviously he has the game to win anywhere he tees it up, which is a big advantage and to me more truly reminiscent of Tiger than anything else about him (as opposed to a guy like Phil who is a hell of a golfer but has virtually no chance of ever competing for the British Open).

Sweet wing and not one that looks like it would break down or break down his body (unlike Tiger). I can imagine a 45 year old still using that basic swing, though some of the flexibility will clearly be gone.

I think he wins 8-10 majors, including the career grand slam. Could easily be more. I'm not sure he has the drive to be the best, which was Nicklaus' lifelong goal, or the burning desire to top Tiger's or Jack's numbers. Or maybe he does and he just doesn't show it. But he's 22 and he's held the lead at some point in each of the past four majors, so I don't want to put anything past him.

Really tough to pick one for this. Here's a few that I think will fare well:

Mahan
Dufner
Rose
