Scratch’s Thoughts:

After everything went so wrong at the majors for Tiger Woods, it’ll be interesting to see if he was able to fix those problems in the time between. He last played Liberty National in 2009 where he tied for second. The course has been tweaked since then, but the push for the FedEx Cup might give Tiger the push he needs.

Henrik Stenson – Stenson has placed in the top 3 at the Open, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA. He’s currently ninth in the FedExCup standings and a win here would definitely put him in the running for the Cup.

Jason Day – Day’s got six top-10 finishes and is coming off a T-8 at the PGA Championship. He took last week so expect to see him high on the leaderboard.
