Duke is the defending champion of the Travelers and the veteran will be a popular sleeper pick this week. However, Duke hasn’t cracked the top-10 in his 27 tournament appearances since then. The 44-year-old will struggle all week long and won’t be worth grabbing this week at TPC River Highlands.

4. Kevin Chappell Will Crack Top-20

Chappell has three top-26 finishes in his last four tournaments alone. The California native is starting to heat up and will be a decent sleeper pick this week. He won’t exactly be a threat to win it all, but he should have no problem racking up another top-20 finish.

3. Brandt Snedeker Will Crack Top-15

Snedeker started the year off with only one top-10 finish in his first nine events, but he has started to turn things around. He finished ninth at the U.S. Open last week and shot under 70 in the first two rounds. Snedeker will have a strong showing this week in Cromwell.

2. Matt Kuchar Will Have Another Top-10 Finish

Kuchar has been on a record pace this season. He has nine top-10 finishes already this year and the veteran continues to be in the conversation every Sunday. Look for him to have another top-10 finish this week in Cromwell with the limited field.

It seems that a different player is winning a tournament every single week, from Patrick Reed (WGC-Cadillac Championship) to Martin Kaymer (U.S. Open). More and more players are starting to win tournaments and this week will likely have yet another relatively unknown golfer hoisting the trophy on Sunday.
