5. And the 2014 Players Championship winner is…?

BAMBERGER: I think we all know Rickie Fowler is going to win this. Now that he's got his ears tucked under his hat in the wind, he's got one less thing to worry about.

SHIPNUCK: Not a bad call, Michael. Sawgrass is kind of a petite course that's all about position. I'll take Luke Donald. He's been in swing-change mode for a while and it's coming together, as we saw at Harbour Town. He's peaking, he's reengaged, and he's ready to win again.

VAN SICKLE: I'll go with golf's hottest player, Matt Kuchar. He had four straight chances to win and got the last one, at Harbour Town. He's won a Players and may be our next world No. 1.

BAMBERGER: Your logic is impeccable. I'm changing my pick to Ponte Vedra Beach resident Jim Furyk. You can win on this course by grinding your way around for 72 holes. Jim excels at that.

GARRITY: My streak of picking winners with Adam Scott is broken, so I'm going into long-shot mode and taking John Huh, if for no other reason than I can do the who's-on-first routine with my grandkids.

VAN SICKLE: It would be great for you if he beat Kevin Na in a playoff. Who won? Huh? Kevin? Nahhh. Huh?

ANONYMOUS PRO: I like Mr. Rogers.

GARRITY: Really?

ANONYMOUS PRO: That's Kuchar. He's got control of his ball better than anyone right now. I know it's a boring pick, but that's how Mr. Rogers rolls. Kuchar's one cardigan sweater away from having his own show.
