My Accenture Finals Pick: Luke Donald
I know it's last minute, but I wanted to get it out there before this thing kicked off. On Saturday, on my own dime, I picked Bubba Watson and Matt Kuchar to advance out of the quarterfinals, which both won with the impressive Watson comeback, but didn't have time to make semifinal picks (I would have gone Donald, Watson, so I would have been 1-1).
Anyway, I like Luke here in the finals. He's playing well, he hasn't had to deal with the number one talk all day and night, and he is flying under the radar, if that's at all possible for a guy that has played the fewest matches ever to reach the finals.
So, yes, Donald. Boom. It's the only time in my life I'd pick a guy wearing a visor.
