Pick: Padraig Harrington
The Irishman is having a quietly steady year on the PGA Tour. He hasn't missed a cut in eight starts and has five top 20s, including a T7 at the Masters. Harrington missed the cut at Sawgrass last year and wasn't much better the year before, tying for 63rd. But it's worth looking back a little further: In both 2003 and '04, he was the runner-up. In other words, he can go low here, and he is in form to do it. The key for Harrington will be to avoid that one sloppy round i.e., his third-round 79 at Wachovia last week that separates wins from, well, everything else.
