Dark Horse: Alex Smalley- I’ve seen Smalley getting some love lately for his performance thus far this season, so I’ll give him a shot this week. Smalley finished T-4 last weekend,and has finished in the Top 25 in 3 of his last 4 starts this season. Expect him to be 4 for 5 after this weekend.

Top 10: Seamus Power- Having a relatively solid season thus far and already with a win at the Butterfield a couple of weeks ago, Power will likely hold his own this weekend. The current FedEx Cup points leader ranks 15th on the Tour in Strokes Gained: Putting, along with ranking 10th in Birdie Average. Power is a sure fire lock for a Top 10 spot this weekend.

Winner: Mackenzie Hughes: Already a winner on the young season, Hughes figures to be a contender this week at Sea Island. He is currently 3rd in FedEx Cup points, and averaging a 69 scorecard. I predict Hughes continues his winning ways and picks up a win at the RSM this weekend!
