The Sports Xchange's 2013 PGA Tour rankings, selected by TSX Golf Staff, based on 2012-2013 performance.
1. Tiger Woods, United States -- While fulfilling his duties as host of the AT&T National, Woods greeted the golfers as they came off the final green at Congressional, then presented the trophy to the new champion, Bill Haas. Tiger was unable to defend his title because of an injury to his left elbow that he picked up while winning the Players Championship and aggravated in the deep rough en route to a disappointing tie for 32nd in the U.S. Open. ... Woods said at Congressional that his elbow felt much better after resting it and he was ready to start strengthening exercises before getting back to hitting golf balls in his preparation for the 142nd Open Championship next week at Muirfield. He said earlier that he might not be 100 percent for the third major of the year, but that he would be "good enough." His best prescription in Scotland would be to stay out of the rough, which tournament officials have promised will be high at Muirfield. ... After a brilliant start to the season, Woods has struggled in his last two events since the injury, also tying for 65th in his title defense at the Memorial Tournament. He won four of his first six stroke-play events on the PGA Tour, and it will be interesting to see if he can regain that sharpness after several weeks of inactivity. Woods putted extremely well early in the season, but not so well lately, and that's one part of his game he was able to work on during his time off. He probably spent plenty of time on the putting green in his back yard during his break.
2. Justin Rose, England -- Following the whirlwind that came after he claimed his first major championship by holding off Phil Mickelson and Jason Day in the U.S. Open at Merion, Rose did well to tie for 13th in the Travelers Championship. However, in doing so, he hit the wall and withdrew from the AT&T National, which he won in 2011. He's on the back end of a three-week break before the 142nd Open Championship at Muirfield next week, and he should be greeted as a conquering hero in the United Kingdom after becoming the first major winner from England since Nick Faldo captured the 1996 Masters. ... Looking back at the season, it was easy to see Rose coming, as other than his missed cut in the Players Championship, he finished in the top 25 in his eight other tournaments on the PGA Tour and posted four finishes in the top 10. He chased Tiger Woods all the way to the finish in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, tying for second, two strokes back. ... Rose got off to a strong start on the European Tour in January with a tie for second in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, finishing one stroke behind Jamie Donaldson of Wales, and also tied for 16th in the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. Despite finishing in a disappointing tie for 50th in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, he leads the European Tour's Race to Dubai. His strong season on the PGA Tour has put him sixth in the FedEx Cup standings and fifth on the money list with $3,032,310.
3. Matt Kuchar, United States -- Playing on foreign soil for the first time since the Open Championship last July, Kuchar could not break 70 in any of his four rounds and barely made the cut on his way to a tie for 49th in the Alstom Open de France. He has made the cut in all 15 of his PGA Tour events this season, with his worst result a tie for 48th in the Players Championship. With two titles to his credit this year, Kuchar seems to have his game in good shape despite the rough week. ... Kooch brought his wife, Sybi, and their two children with him on the trip to Europe, and after the tournament was over in Versailles, they made their way to the south of France for a week off before the 142nd Open Championship at Muirfield in Scotland. He could be a factor in the third major of the year after finishing in the top 10 in three of the last six majors, including a tie for ninth in the Open last year at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. ... Kuchar opened with a solid 1-under-par 70 last week at Le Golf National near Versailles but did not card a single birdie the next day en route to a 75 and was fortunate to make it to the weekend. Once there, he did not play much better, closing with 73-73 and carding a total of only three birdies over the final 36 holes. Kooch struggled on the tricky greens, averaging 32.8 putts per round. He will have to clean that up if he hopes to contend at Muirfield.
4. Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland -- McIlroy is in the second week of a break in which he is trying to figure out the problems in his game ahead of the 142nd Open Championship after missing the cut at home in the Irish Open at Carton House. He spent part of the time away with his girlfriend, Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark, at Wimbledon, where she was knocked out in the second round by Petra Cetkovska of the Czech Republic. After their twin disappointments, the couple headed for her home in Monaco to get away from it all. ... Following his brilliant 2012 season, when he won four times on the PGA Tour and five times in all en route to claiming the No. 1 spot in the World Golf Rankings, Rory has struggled for much of this season. He does have four top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour, including second behind Martin Laird of Scotland in the Valero Texas Open, but this is not what was expected. Padraig Harrington had an interesting observation at the Irish Open, saying that while McIlroy has been compared to Tiger Woods, he might be more like Phil Mickelson, brilliant but streaky. ... McIlroy was innocently involved in a little bit of controversy while at Wimbledon, where he was accredited and allowed to work out in the gymnasium for players and coaches at the Millennium Building complex. That upset 10th-seeded Maria Kirilenko of Russia, whose boyfriend, Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals, was not allowed in the gym. Tournament officials said Ovechkin would have been allowed in had he asked for accreditation ahead of time.
5. Adam Scott, Australia -- The Masters champion will get to Muirfield early ahead of the 142nd Open Championship next week, hoping that his preparation will lead to a better result than he had the last time it was held there, when he shot 77-68--145 and missed the cut in 2002. More than that, hopefully by winning at Augusta in April to claim his first major title, he has exorcised any ghosts he had from making bogeys on the last four holes a year ago at Royal Lytham & St. Annes to blow a four-stroke lead and finish second behind Ernie Els. ... After becoming the first Aussie to claim the Green Jacket, the man his countrymen hoped would become the next Greg Norman will try to become the first golfer from Down Under to claim the Claret Jug since Norman in 1993 at Royal St. George's. However, after a strong start to his season, he has not had his best form lately, finishing in a tie for 45th in the U.S. Open and tying for 57th his last time out in the AT&T National on a major-type venue at Congressional. ... Scott is one of nine players on the PGA Tour using an anchored putter who has retained a lawyer to deal with the ban on long putters by the United States Golf Association and the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, which will go into effect in 2016. The PGA Tour agreed to go along with the ban last week, so it will be interesting to see if any legal action ensues from any of the users of anchored putters.
6. Brandt Snedeker, United States -- Snedeker, who probably was the best golfer in the world for the first month of the season until being set back by injuries, is taking two weeks off ahead of the Open Championship at Muirfield. After struggling following his return from an intercostal strain, he seems to have gotten his game going in the right direction in his last two outings, finishing in a tie for 17th in the U.S. Open at Merion and in a tie for eighth in the AT&T National at Congressional, which he said was like playing a second U.S. Open in a span of three weeks. ... Snedeker was planning to play in the Greenbrier Classic last week, but he decided he needed to take a break before heading across the Atlantic because he had played four times in five weeks since returning from the injury. Despite his injury problems, he has finished in the top 10 seven times this season, which is tied for the lead on the PGA Tour. Last year, he tied for third in the Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St. Annes after missing the cut in his first three appearances in the third major of the season. ... Because of the recurrence of rib injuries that Snedeker has been experiencing over the last few years, he has been taking nightly injections in his stomach of Forteo, a drug commonly used to treat osteoporosis, since May. Since the medicine must be kept refrigerated, he has been trying to figure out the logistics of taking it with him to Scotland. Snedeker has been diagnosed with low-turnover bone disease, which means his body is slow to regenerate bone.
7. Phil Mickelson, United States -- Coming off a two-week break following the disappointment of his sixth runner-up finish in the U.S. Open, Mickelson shot 74-68--142 and missed the cut by three strokes in the Greenbrier Classic, missing the weekend in the event for the third consecutive year. It was his third missed cut of the season in 14 events on the PGA Tour, even though he finally broke the par of 70 for the first time in six rounds on the TPC Old White Course. ... Lefty is heading to Scotland a week ahead of the 142nd Open Championship at Muirfield and will play this week in the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open for the 11th time, including the third in a row since it moved from Loch Lomond to Castle Stuart Golf Links. He tied for 58th two years ago and tied for 16th last year. He has two top-10 finishes in the tournament and seemed to be headed for victory in 2007 at Loch Lomond by posting four scores in the 60s. Stop me if you've heard this before, but Mickelson hit a bad drive on the final hole of regulation and another on the first hole of a playoff, both leading to bogeys that allowed Gregory Havret of France to sneak away with the victory. ... Lefty was at even par through 16 holes in round one last week on the TPC Old White Course when he hit his drive into the water and then three-putted from 33 feet to card a triple-bogey 8, then added a bogey on the final hole to close out his 74. He tried to rally the next day with four birdies on the last seven holes of the back nine after starting at No. 10, but then he made three bogeys coming home and was gone.
8. Luke Donald, England -- Too many big numbers proved costly to Donald in the Alstom Open de France, as he could not break the par of 71 in any of his four rounds and wound up in a tie for 42nd. However it was better than his other two appearances on the European Tour this season, missed cuts in the Maybank Malaysian Open and the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, which he had won the two previous years. ... Even though he won the Aberdeen Asset Scottish Open two years ago, when it moved from Loch Lomond to Castle Stuart Golf Links, and wound up in a tie for 16th last year in his title defense, Luke is skipping the tournament this week. He closed with a 9-under-par 63 in 2011 to win by four strokes over Fredrik Andersson Hed of Sweden when the tournament was shortened to 54 holes because of rain, but apparently that showing was not enough to convince him to play this week rather than take the time off ahead of the Open Championship at Muirfield. ... Donald's biggest problems at Le Golf National came on the 18th hole, where he hit the ball into the water twice and carded triple-bogey 7s en route to an opening 71 and a closing 75. He also recorded a double-bogey 7 at No. 9 while closing out a second-round 73, which means he closed with a 7 in three rounds. He also had a double-bogey 6 on the eighth hole of a 71 on Saturday. Luke struggled with the putter, averaging 31.0 putts per round, taking at least 30 each day except Thursday, when he had 28.
9. Bill Haas, United States -- Coming off his victory in the AT&T National, Haas started with three rounds in the 60s in the Greenbrier Classic and was within hailing distance of the leaders. However, he recorded an early double bogey in the final round and closed with an even-par 70 to finish in a tie for ninth. Still, he has to feel good about his game heading to the third major of the year after recording his eighth top-10 finish of the season. ... Haas is passing up the John Deere Classic this week, at least in part because he has missed the cut four times in his five appearances at TPC Deere Run, and will head to Muirfield, Scotland, early for the Open Championship. He tied for 19th last year in the third major of the year at Royal Lytham & St. Annes and tied for 20th earlier this season in the Masters, but he never has finished in the top 10 in his 15 appearances in the Grand Slam events. ... Haas hit his approach shot into a greenside bunker on the sixth hole of the final round last week at the TPC Old White Course, needed two more shots to get on the green and then missed a four-foot putt to take a double-bogey 6. That was the only blemish on his scorecard, but he could only make two birdies on Sunday after carding rounds of 68-68-67. He had 11 birdies in the first two rounds, but only six on the weekend. Haas ranked among the leaders by hitting 42 of 56 fairways and 53 of 72 greens in regulation, but he could have been better with his belly putter, averaging 29.3 putts per round.
10. Dustin Johnson, United States -- DJ spent time at home in Myrtle Beach after finishing in a tie for 18th in the BMW International Open at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried in Munich, Germany, but has made another trip across the Atlantic ahead of the 142nd Open Championship next week at Muirfield. He flew into Dublin and is playing some of the classic links courses in Ireland before heading to Scotland on Sunday night. ... Johnson showed signs in Germany that his game is returning to the form he had at the start of the season, when he captured the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, before being stalled by illness and injury. Actually, he seemed to be coming around when he tied for 10th in his title defense at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, but then he struggled to a 55th-place finish in the U.S. Open at Merion. ... Johnson has been one of the more active travelers among the American players in recent years, making several trips to Europe and Asia, and has taken to links golf, finishing in the top 15 in each of the last three Open Championships. One of the longest drivers around, he was not wild about the set up at Merion with the tightness of the fairways, and he said he was looking forward to playing at Muirfield. Even though tournament officials have promised that the rough will be up for the third major of the year, there figures to be more room off the tee and hopefully the big bombers will be able to hit driver more often than they did in the U.S. Open.
11. Webb Simpson, United States -- Last week in the Greenbrier Classic, Simpson opened with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 64, his best score of the season, but he could not break 70 the rest of the way and wound up in a tie for 41st. He posted two 65s his previous time out while tying for fifth in the Travelers Championship, so his game could be heating up just in time for the third major of the season. ... Even though he has played in the John Deere Classic three times previously, Webb has decided to skip the tournament this week and get to Muirfield, Scotland, early in order to prepare for his second appearance in the oldest championship in the world. He tied for 16th in 2011 at Royal St. George's but skipped the tournament last year after winning the U.S. Open because his wife, Dowd, was expecting their second child, Willow Grace. ... Simpson struggled to a 73 in the second round on the TPC Old White Course, salvaging the day with his only birdies of the day on the 16th and 17th holes, and then played the weekend in 70-70. His final round was shaping up to be very much like the second, as he was 3 over without a birdie through 14 holes, but he finished with three birdies in the last four holes to leave the Greenbrier with a good taste in his mouth. Simpson hit 46 of 56 fairways and 54 of 72 greens in regulation but ran hot and cold with his belly putter, taking a total of 51 putts in the first and third rounds, and a total of 64 in the second and last.
12. Keegan Bradley, United States -- After making a commitment a few weeks ago to play in the Greenbrier Classic, Bradley changed his mind at the last minute and instead will make his final competitive tune-up for the Open Championship at Muirfield in the John Deere Classic, beginning on Thursday. Then he will take the flight to Scotland for the third major of the season on Sunday night in one of two planes chartered by John Deere officials to entice players to enter their event. ... Keegan is playing at TPC Deere Run for the first time, and his addition to the field was a big lift for the tournament, which loses many players who would like to play, but they want to get to the United Kingdom early ahead of the Open Championship. He might have made the switch because he has not played well in the Greenbrier Classic, tying for 43rd as a rookie and tying for 46th last year on the TPC Old White Course. ... Bradley has played 17 times on the PGA Tour this season, and while he has yet to add to his three career victories, he is enjoying another solid season. He has placed in the top 10 in six tournaments, including four finishes of fourth or better, and came closest to winning when he finished second, two strokes behind Sang-Moon Bae of South Korea, in the HP Byron Nelson Championship, which he won in 2011. Bradley has to consider that as one that got away, because he posted scores of 60-69-68 and had the lead going to the final round, but he couldn't get it done on Sunday, closing with a 2-over-par 72.
13. Lee Westwood, England -- His move to South Florida from his lifelong home in Worksop, England, late last year allowed Westwood to play more on the PGA Tour in the first half of this season, and he took advantage of that to compete in 14 events in the United States. He also opened the season in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and then made the trip back to England for the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, but then he hit the wall a few weeks ago. ... Westy felt so fatigued that he withdrew from the AT&T National and the Alstom Open de France, one of his favorite events on the European Tour, in which he tied for second in 2009. He also decided to pass on the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, which he has played 16 times and won in 2002 at Loch Lomond. When he tees it up at Muirfield next week, it will be almost a month since he last hit a shot in competition. ... Westwood has long been considered one of the best ball-strikers around, with his short game keeping him from even greater heights and possibly his first major championship. Being able to work on his weakness in the warmer weather in Florida has led to a vast improvement around the greens, and he ranks ninth on the PGA Tour in scrambling, getting up and down for par 63.87 percent of the time. His ball-striking suffered for a while, but before he finished 74th in the Travelers Championship, which he attributed to fatigue, he put together a stretch of five tournaments in which he finished no worse than a tie for 15th in the U.S. Open.
14. Steve Stricker, United States -- After Stricker plays this week in the John Deere Classic, perhaps his favorite event on the PGA Tour, we might see him only three more times this season and not until the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational next month. The 46-year-old claims he will play only 11 times on the circuit this season and is even passing on the 142nd Open Championship next week at Muirfield, where he tied for 59th the last time the third major of the year was played there in 2002. ... Strick is making his 12th start at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill., which is less than a three-hour drive from his home in Madison, Wis. The fans at the John Deere have embraced him since he is a graduate of the University of Illinois, plus an all-around good guy. He won the tournament in 2009, 2010 and 2011 before finishing in a tie for fifth last year, when he had a chance to make it four in a row after rounds of 65-67-66 but closed with an 1-under-par 71 and finished four strokes out of the playoff in which Zach Johnson beat Troy Matteson. ... Stricker closed with 61-68-64 to beat Johnson, Brandt Snedeker and Brett Quigley by three strokes at TPC Deere Run in 2009. He started with scores of 60-66-62 before closing with a 70 to beat Paul Goydos by two shots in 2010, and he made it a hat trick when he went 66-64-63-69 and overcame Kyle Stanley by one stroke in 2011. Stanley held a one-stroke lead going to the final hole, where he made bogey, and Stricker pulled out the victory by holing a 25-foot birdie putt from the fringe.
15. Hunter Mahan, United States -- Having tied for fourth in the U.S. Open at Merion, the best of his five top-10 finishes in the major championships, Mahan is taking two weeks off before playing in the 142nd Open Championship next week at Muirfield. Even though he missed the cut in the AT&T National in his last outing, he has had a solid first half of the season on the PGA Tour, with 11 finishes in the top 25 in his 18 tournaments, coming closest to winning when he lost to Matt Kuchar in the final of his title defense in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. ... Mahan is looking forward to getting to Muirfield, where he has never played, with his best finish in the third major of the year a tie for sixth in 2007 at Carnoustie, and he also tied for 19th last year at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. He has proven that he can win on tough courses against fields that include the best players in the world by capturing the 2010 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the 2012 Accenture. The next step in his progression would be winning the first major championship of his career. ... Hunter's ball-striking has been solid this season, as he has hit in the neighborhood of two-thirds of the fairways and greens, but he can do better than his average of 29.66 putts per round. He has a reputation of being a streaky player, winning twice in 2010 and again in 2012 but going winless in 2011. He has not been able to find the winner's circle so far this season.
16. Ernie Els, South Africa -- The Big Easy, preparing for his rare double title defense in the Open Championship at Muirfield, finally confirmed last week that he will play in the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open this week at Castle Stuart Golf Links. It's been a busy season for him already, as usual, as he has played 18 times in eight countries, and Scotland the next two weeks will make it nine. ... Els is playing in the Scottish Open for the 18th time and has posted seven top-10 finishes, including victories in 2000 and 2003. However, those wins came at Loch Lomond, and he has not fared as well since the tournament moved to Castle Stuart two years ago, finishing in a tie for 25th in 2011 and tying for 52nd last year. Ernie claimed his first title at Loch Lomond by one stroke over Tom Lehman, and prevailed again three years later when he ran away from Phillip Price of England and Darren Clarke of Northern Ireland by five shots. ... Els, who won the Open last year at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, in addition to prevailing the last time it was held at Muirfield in 2002, is heading toward his title defense in great form. He has four top-10 finishes, all in different countries, in his last six outings, including the 70th victory of his career a few weeks ago in the BMW International Open at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried in Munich, Germany. Until his recent hot streak, he had not finished in the top 10 all season, but he showed that he was getting close with five results in the top 20.
17. Bubba Watson, United States -- Bubba broke the par of 70 in every round on the TPC Old White Course but simply did not go low enough and finished in a tie for 30th in the Greenbrier Classic. He finished fourth in his previous outing at the Travelers, although he blew a chance to win with a late triple bogey. His game seems to be rounding into shape with the third major of the season only a week away. ... Watson has played in the John Deere Classic four times but hasn't been back since he missed the cut at TPC Deere Run in 2010, and he won't be there this week, either. He's going to take a week off before heading to the Open Championship at Muirfield, Scotland, where he hopes to at least finish in the top 10 in a major championship for the first time since winning the Masters last year. He's never posted a top-10 result in his four appearances in the third major of the year. ... Watson opened with a 68 last week in the Greenbrier Classic and followed with three consecutive 69s, but he never got on a sustained run. For example, he carded five birdies in the third round but also mixed in four bogeys that kept him from climbing the leaderboard. Bubba played well at the finish, covering his last 10 holes in a bogey-free 2 under, and he hopes to take some momentum to Muirfield. He hit 41 of 56 fairways while leading the field with an average drive of 316.0 yards, including a long of 367. Watson also hit 49 of 72 greens and averaged 28.8 putts per round.
18. Graeme McDowell, Northern Ireland -- Following four consecutive missed cuts, including one the previous week in the Irish Open, McDowell was simply trying to get his game back on track heading to the Open Championship. Instead, he closed with a 4-under-par 67 to win the Alstom Open de France by four strokes over Richard Sterne of South Africa. It was his third victory of the year and second on the European Tour, lifting him to second in the Race to Dubai standings behind U.S. Open champion Justin Rose. ... Even though he's played in the relatively low number of 13 tournaments this year on both major tours, G-Mac has decided not to play this week in the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, even though he's played the event eight times and won it in 2008. Instead, he will head for Muirfield early to finish his preparation for the 142nd Open Championship. He shot 66-68 on the weekend five years ago to beat James Kingston of South Africa by two strokes at Loch Lomond, but he tied for 41st when the Scottish Open moved to Castle Stuart in 2011 and will skip the tournament for the second consecutive year. ... McDowell found himself one stroke behind Sterne after carding his only bogey at No. 7 on the final round at Le Golf National near Versailles, but he played the final 11 holes in 3 under, recording birdies on the ninth, 10th and 17th holes as the South African stumbled home with three bogeys to close with a 71. After struggling on the greens for three days, averaging 31.0 putts per round, G-Mac needed only 26 on Sunday.
19. Jason Dufner, United States -- Duf again showed that he could be a major player when he tied for fourth in the U.S. Open at Merion, but after missing the cut in the Travelers Championship, he is taking three weeks off before teeing it up in the 142nd Open Championship at Muirfield. After playing in the majors only four times between 2001 and 2009, he has finished in the top 10 once in each of the last four years in the Grand Slam events. ... After claiming his first two PGA Tour victories last year at the age of 35, Dufner has finished in the top 10 only three times this season, twice on the European Tour in January and again in the second major of the season. Last year was the first time he played in all four of the Grand Slam events in the same season, and even though he was struggling early this year, he managed to tie for 20th in the Masters. His best result in a major was second in the 2011 PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club, where he blew the lead down the stretch and lost in a playoff to Keegan Bradley. ... Dufner has often said that putting is his least favorite part of the game and that the putter is the weakest club in his bag, and his numbers this year again bear that out. He has hit in the neighborhood of two-thirds of the fairways and greens, but he is 155th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained putting at minus-.392 and 152nd with an average of 29.71 putts per round.
20. Ian Poulter, England -- Despite breaking 70 only when he posted a 2-under-par 69 in round three, Poulter was mostly solid as Le Golf National played very tough, and he finished in a tie for 25th in the Alstom Open de France near Versailles. He tied for 21st in the U.S. Open at Merion, so the Englishman seems to have his game going in the right direction heading toward the third major of the season next week. ... Poults has played in the top 10 of the Aberdeen Asset Scottish Open in four of his 10 appearances, but all of those were at Loch Lomond, and he won't be making his first trip to Castle Stuart Golf Links this week. Instead, he will get to Muirfield early for the 142nd Open Championship to see what changes have been made to the course since he tied for 50th when the third major of the season was last played on the Scottish links course in 2002. ... Poulter could have finished in the top 10 last week in France if not for bookend 73s. He nearly played himself out of the tournament in round one after opening on the front nine, which he finished with double bogey, double bogey, bogey to post a 5-over 40, but salvaged the round by carding three birdies on the front. His best stuff came in the middle rounds, when he shot 71 to make the cut by two strokes, and followed with a 69. In the final round, he played steady golf other than making three consecutive bogeys through No. 11. Poulter struggled again with the putter, averaging 29.8 putts per round.
