WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Bob Friend, director of operations at Pikewood National Golf Club in Morgantown, submits his five picks for this week’s Greenbrier Classic:
Boo Weekley: He won at Colonial recently and plays these type of golf courses well. All three of his PGA Tour victories have occurred in the south and on shorter venues.
Gary Woodland: His game is showing signs of life and he is due to win again on the PGA Tour.
Charles Howell III: The University of Kansas graduate has played well here in the past and is a shaper of shots—perfect for Old White.
Brendon DeJonge: The long-hitting South African, who played collegiately at Virginia Tech, finished third at the Greenbrier in 2010.
D.A. Points: A fourth-place finisher at the Greenbrier in 2010, Points won this year in Houston and finished second in New Orleans.
