    Power Rankings: Zurich Classic

    ***B List Continued***

    13. Tim Petrovic -- Seems to like this week’s course as he won this event in ’05 and finished 24th last year. Not the most dependable player and has not exactly been on fire in ’08 (his only top-10 finish was at the Mayakoba and an extremely weak field).

    14. Mike Weir -- Its funny to see a player of his caliber this far down on the rankings. But he has yet to break the top-10 after a strong performance to open the year in Hawaii. And it does not help that he has no record on this week’s course.


    C List:

    1. Tim Clark -- Really struggled early in ’08 missing the cut in his first 3 tournaments. But he is coming off a 12th place finish at Doral, and when he has it going he is one of the most consistent players on Tour. He is somewhat familiar with the layout (finished 21st in ’05).

    2. Steve Marino -- Has been remarkably consistent this year making the cut in all 9 of tournaments he has played in. The only downside is that he has only been able to post 1 top-10 and that was against a weak field in Mexico. If you are worried about one of your guys making the cut this week, Marino would be the guy to pair him with (but don’t expect much more than a made cut). He missed the cut in his only appearance in this event last year.

    3. John Merrick -- Has played very well in ’08 with 4 top-20 finishes and he seems to like these weaker field events. He is coming in off a solid finish of 13th in Puerto Rico and he played well on this layout last year finishing 18th.

    4. Brian Davis -- Had a really good chance to win a couple weeks ago at the Honda and he appears to be playing much better than he was at the beginning of the year. He missed the cut on this course in ’07 but had a solid finish of 15th in ’05.

    5. Chris Dimarco -- I know you are probably going to say “he is washed up” or something very similar. Well, based upon his play in ’08 I really could not argue much. But, he played much better overseas a couple weeks ago and has a very solid record in New Orleans. He has 3 top-10 finishes in New Orleans over the past 6 years and one of them came on this week’s layout in ’05. However, he did not fare very well here last year as he finished 80th.

    6. Joe Durant -- With a quick glance at his track record you would probably think that Durant would be a great pick for this week. But, if you look closer, you will see that his 4th place finish in ’06 and 10th place finish in ’04 took place on another course. His record on this week’s layout includes a MC last year and a 52nd place finish in ’05. He has played very well in ’08 so he could still be considered a sleeper pick.

    7. Tom Pernice, Jr. -- Played extremely well in his last 2 events (finished 10th and 8th) and overall has played pretty well in ’08. Doesn’t have much record at this event but did finish 31st in ’05 on this same course.

    8. Kenny Perry -- Has been consistent in ’08 only missing one cut and that was his opening event in Hawaii. But he has only been able to convert the made cuts into 1 top-10. He is battling a hip/leg problem that supposedly does not affect him during his swing but bothers him when he walks. Has not fared well on this layout finishing 66th last year, but this course would seem to suit him since his a long hitter and hits lots of greens.
