FedEx St. Jude Classic (6/7-6/10)

I find it hilarious that the so called "experts" are still picking McIlroy to win tournaments. He hasn't played well since before The Masters, with the exception of his 2nd place finish at Quail Hollow. McIlroy is in a serious slump, and he will eventually come out of it, but I doubt he will until he works on his issues. My picks are as follows:
Graeme McDowell: Graeme has played well here during his first start at TPC Southwind a few years ago. He usually plays good, consistent golf as well.

Justin Leonard: He has won this tournament twice before and enjoys playing the course. Even though his year hasn't been that great, Leonard will have at least one good tournament.

Zach Johnson: Johnson recently came off of his 2nd victory at The Crowne Plaza Invitational. This year, he has played very consistently and has always been hovering near the top of the leader board. It wouldn't surprise me if he joined the group with 2 wins.

I would like to see Camillo Villegas at the top of the leaderboard sometime soon considering he hasn't done much this year. The same with John Daly who is also playing at TPC Southwind. He would be a long shot, but he can be interesting to watch especially with the putter and driver.

TV coverage of The FedEx St. Jude Classic will be from 3-6 PM Eastern time, Thursday and Friday aon the Golf Channel, and Saturday and Sunday on CBS.
