So in an attempt to inject a bit more life and interest into tournaments, and because we're all inveterate gamblers who are one bad card from being out on the streets, Jay Busbee and I are playing a golf version of a football suicide pool: We each pick one golfer per tournament and see how they do against each other, straight up. Victory over the other guy gets one point, victory in the tournament gets three points, and a tie lands you half a point. (Double for the majors.) And when we burn a golfer, he's done for the year. We turn our attention to the AT&T National at Congressional.

Wall: Give me Jim Furyk this week. Sure, he's coming off a disappointing final round at the U.S. Open a couple weeks ago, but he's had enough success at AT&T National in the past -- three top-10 finishes -- to make him a solid play. Add to that seven top 15s in his last nine starts and I like his chances against "The Tank."

Busbee: After a relatively slow start to the season, Choi has finished inside the top 20 in both the Memorial and the US Open. He won the first AT&T back in 2007, and he seems like a decent bet to put together a decent couple days. At this point, I'm hoping my guy remembers to get to the course by his tee time.

Last week: Someone finally won a point! Busbee picked Matt Kuchar, who finished T-8 -- another ho-hum top 10 for Mr. Consistent -- at the Travelers Championship. Wall's pick didn't fare so well, as Ryan Moore made the cut but finished T-47.

Current score: Busbee - 7.0, Wall - 5.0.

Already Used: Wall - Gary Woodland, K.J. Choi, Martin Laird, Nick Watney, Lee Westwood, Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Steve Stricker, Zach Johnson, Luke Donald, Ryan Moore, Jim Furyk. BusbeeNick Watney, Webb Simpson, Bill Haas, Ben Crane, Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott, Zach Johnson, Luke Donald, Robert Karlsson, Dustin JohnsonMatt Kuchar, K.J.
