Scratch’s Thoughts:
Zach Johnson is the defending champ and has won this even twice in the last three years, so keep your eye on him. Last year he just squeaked out a win over Jason Dufner – fingers crossed for another exciting ending! But Johnson also had a pretty disappointing week last week.

Matt Kuchar – he’s made 16 straight cuts and counting. He’s made the cut at Colonial the last six times. The question is if he can back those cuts up.

Jim Furyuk – He was the runner-up in 1998, tied for second 2007, and has finished in the top-10 in seven total Colonials with a fourth-place last year. His game also really suits this course.
