1. Johnson Wagner: He is a top-10 machine this season and is making his first start since the Masters. With a T-15 finish here last year, Wagner could be in line for another high finish.

2. J.B. Holmes: Holmes was T-8 in his last start in Houston. After a two-week break, Holmes returns to a place where he was T-11 and T-13 in the last two years.

3. Kevin Na: Yes, Na made that 16 in the first round last year. He won't remember that, however, as he won in Vegas last fall and has four top-10 finishes this year. He was T-8 last week in Harbour Town.

4. Matt Kuchar: Kuchar is making his debut at the AT&T Oaks Course, but the track fits his profile as an excellent ball-striker.

5. Charley Hoffman: Hoffman has a great, albeit short, track record at this course. He was T-2 last year and T-13 the year prior. He notched a T-8 finish last week at the RBC Heritage.

6. Fredrik Jacobson: His rough final-round 81 at Harbour Town should be a distant memory as Jacobson shows up to a course where he has been in the top 5 each of the last two years.

7. Harris English: English recorded a T-8 finish last week on the tree-lined Harbour Town layout. He enjoys tracks which require that level of precision, which should translate this week, too.

8. Vaughn Taylor: Taylor is playing sneaky good golf right now. In his last five starts, he has three top-20 finishes. He was T-13 last week and cashed in his last four Texas Open starts.

9. Cameron Tringale: A tremendous driver of the golf ball, Tringale should have little problem getting around TPC San Antonio. He was T-8 in his last start in Houston and T-5 here last year.

10. Matt Every: Every is the flier pick this week. He was T-30 here last year in one of just a handful of PGA Tour starts. Coming off of a T-8 last week, Every is hit or miss.
