Player to Fade: Nick Hardy- While he is on the list to play well, I see Nick struggling. He has made adjustments to his game as he tries to secure a win and I think this format won’t be a good fit for his adjustments. Nick might play decent, but I don’t see him grabbing a top 15.

Dark Horse: Nick Watney- Nick has had his up and downs through his career and while it’s hard to predict, I see him playing well this week. His short game is too solid and he can definitely make a showing in Tahoe when no one expects a lot from him. The course fits his game and I think everyone would love to see him have a solid event.

Top 10: Chez Reavie- He has been playing decently well. With a top 10 at the Travelers and a lot of top 15s this year, I see no reason why he wouldn’t be able to make the top 10 this week. Chez is familiar with this format and should make a good showing here in Tahoe.

Winner: Cam Davis- We have seen him play well this year, with multiple top tens, proving he can go low under pressure. This format will suit his aggressive play. He just has to stay away from those negative scores and he will dominate this field.
