Cabrera is fresh off a T11 at the Travelers Championship, so naturally it will make him a popular sleeper this week. He has already missed the cut eight times in 15 events this year. Cabrera will be one veteran to avoid at all costs this week at Bethesda.

4. Morgan Hoffman Will Have Another Top-20 Finish

Hoffman quietly has four top-20 finishes on the year and the 24-year-old is really coming around. He even recorded a T8 last year at Bethesda. Hoffman won’t be a reliable option each week, but he should easily crack the top-20 again in Maryland.

There will be a $1 million pot for any golfer that makes an ace on hole 10 this week in Maryland. Considering Zach Johnson recorded an ace at the U.S. Open earlier this month, it isn’t completely impossible. I fully expect at least one golfer to make an ace this week and take home that fat check.

2. Tiger Woods Will Struggle This Week

Woods will make his return to the course this week after a lengthy three-month absence. Tiger has been recuperating from back surgery and hasn’t had much time to practice. He will likely be very rusty this week and will have a tough time competing with the field in the first couple rounds.

1. Bill Haas Will Not Repeat

1. Bill Haas Will Not Repeat

Haas won this event comfortably last year with a score of 12 under. He shot under 69 in each of the final three rounds and dominated the event. Unfortunately, Haas has just one top-15 performance in the last eight tournaments. Don’t expect Haas to have a repeat performance in Maryland this week.
