I think Matthews has a great shot at top 3. Who cares if the South course is a little short? His time is right up there with the best in history on that course. The only person who ran significantly faster there was Bumbalough. Matthews is flying under the radar and peaking at the perfect time. He's not the type to go out to Cali just to take in the sights and finish the race. That said, there is some stiff competition in the form of Dunbar, Haile, and others. Matthews could finish in the middle of the pack but don't be surprised if he is in the top five or even wins it.
