The PGA Tour hops down Interstate 95 to just outside the nation's capital for this week's AT&T National. Congressional CC returns as host after the U.S. open was here a year ago and Aronimink, just outside of Philadelphia, hosted this event for the last two years.
Take a look at our fantasy rankings for this week, then tweet out your picks using the hashtag #GCFantasy and send them to me @RyanBallengeeGC. Also be sure to join the Golf Channel Fantasy Challenge to test yourself against our panel of experts, including defending champion Win McMurry.
1. Tiger Woods: Though his weekend at the U.S. Open was disappointing, Woods has a pair of PGA Tour wins this season at events hosted by legends. He won here in 2009 and the pattern holds for him to win again.
2. Hunter Mahan: Mahan played sleepy golf through the first three days at the Travelers Championship, then went off for a final-round 61 to surge up the leaderboard. He had a final-round 62 here in 2009 to finish in second place, so he can do the same again this week.
3. Jim Furyk: Furyk returns for the first time since nearly winning a second U.S. Open at the Olympic Club. He's enjoyed a pair of top-three finishes at Congressional in this event and is playing great overall golf.
4. Dustin Johnson: Though the Memphis winner didn't make the cut at the U.S. Open, Johnson has clearly come back from injury in good form. It's his first look at Congressional in this event and second start in the AT&T National overall.
5. Marc Leishman: Last week's winner played this event at Congressional just once, but did post a T-7 at Aronimink in 2010. He has come alive since the Nelson, where he finished T-3.
6. Ryan Palmer: Palmer is one of the hottest players on the PGA Tour, with three consecutive top-10 finishes. He made just one cut in three AT&T National starts at Congressional, however.
7. Rory Sabbatini: The South African was T-2 to Tiger Woods at the Memorial and T-18 last week at the Travelers Championship. With Congressional set up to be more difficult than it has been in the past for this event, it fits Sabbatini's profile.
8. Kevin Chappell: Chappell finished T-10 at the U.S. Open, as well as T-3 in the u.S. Open at Congressional last year. Seems like a proper fit this week.
9. Bryce Molder: Molder is a good sleeper pick this week. He has cashed in four of his last five PGA Tour starts but, more importantly, has two top-eight finishes in three AT&T National starts.
10. Charlie Wi: Wi missed the cut in both AT&T National starts at Congressional, but was fourth at Aronimink in 2010. He has missed just one cut (Wells Fargo Championship) since February.
