Louis Oosthuizen [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #35

Webb Simpson [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #25
Last year's TPC Boston winner has missed two of his last three cuts this season. Simpson still ranks first in birdie average, 17th in greens in regulation percentage and 14th in All-Around Ranking. However, Simpson has just one top-20 in five starts after winning the U.S. Open.

Lee Westwood [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #37

Keegan Bradley [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #18
After winning at Firestone, Bradley finished T3 in the PGA Championship. However, he missed the cut last week in The Barclays and last year at TPC Boston. Bradley could be considered a dark horse, but a risky one.

After a pretty disappointing season, Watney has come alive. Since finishing T21 in the U.S. Open, he’s recorded five top-25s in his last seven starts, highlighted by last week’s win in The Barclays. Watney has a poor track record at TPC Boston, but this recent turnaround is encouraging.
