The Sports Xchange's 2013 PGA Tour rankings, selected by TSX Golf Staff, based on 2012-2013 performance.
1. Tiger Woods, United States -- Woods looked like a winner most of the way last week in the Players Championship, other than one terrible shot in the final round, navigating his way around the Stadium Course as he never has before. After that water ball led to a double-bogey 6 on the 14th hole and dropped him into a tie for the lead, he righted the ship down the stretch and wound up with a two-stroke victory when his challengers made mistakes. It was his fourth victory of the season and the 78th of his career, four behind Sam Snead's PGA Tour record, and he won for the 53rd time in 57 tries when he has held at least a share of the 54-hole lead. ... There are no tournaments listed on the schedule page at tigerwoods.com between the Players and the U.S. Open, but Tiger figures to be at Muirfield Village in two weeks to defend his title in the Memorial Tournament. Jack Nicklaus' tournament is another in which he has had great success, claiming the title in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2009. He has not finished outside the top 25 in his last 11 appearances in the event. ... After his big miscue at TPC Sawgrass, Woods rebounded with a brilliant up-and-down for par on the next hole and a go-ahead birdie from the sand on the 16th hole. Sergio Garcia, with whom he had a testy exchange in the media on Saturday, tied him with a birdie at 16, but he hit two balls into the water short of the island green at No. 17. Woods won for the second time at the Players, the other title coming in 2002, and the scary thing is that he says he is getting better.
2. Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland -- McIlroy started and finished fast while making the cut for the first time in four appearances in the Players Championship last week, but he was dogged by the inconsistency that has plagued his season as he finished in a tie for eighth. He has said that he still was trying to figure out how to play Pete Dye's dangerous beauty, the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, and at least he seemed to make some progress this time. ... McIlroy will take a week off before returning to the European Tour for its flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, outside of London, for the sixth consecutive year. He plans to return to the PGA Tour the following week for the Memorial Tournament. Rory has struck up a friendship with tournament host Jack Nicklaus since making South Florida his U.S. base, and he will be playing in the event for the fourth consecutive year, having finished in the top 10 twice before missing the cut last year. ... McIlroy opened with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 66 last week in the Players, carding five birdies in a span of seven holes through No. 17. He had a similar run in the final round, with three birdies in four holes through No. 17 en route to a closing 70, bouncing back from three bogeys in four holes through No. 9. However, he managed to shoot only 72-73 in the middle rounds, when he made a total of five birdies, compared to 11 the other two days. McIlroy's numbers weren't bad, as he hit 34 of 54 fairways, 52 of 72 greens in regulation and averaged 28.8 putts per round.
3. Brandt Snedeker, United States -- Even though he broke par every day in the Players Championship, Snedeker simply did not go low enough to keep up with the leaders and finished in a tie for eighth. However, it was his best result in the tournament since he tied for 12th in his first appearance at TPC Sawgrass in 2007, as he missed the cut in each of his last four tries. ... Having played 10 times this season on the PGA Tour despite missing six weeks because of a strained intercostal muscle, it appears that Sneds is taking two weeks off, with the schedule page at brandtsnedeker.com having him back for the Memorial Tournament. He's going to keep trying at Muirfield Village, even though he missed the cut in his first four appearances there before withdrawing after two rounds last year because of a rib injury. ... Snedeker carded at least five birdies every day in the Players, and he finished with a total of 21, tying for the most in the field. However, he also had a total of 14 bogeys, which ranked among the most in the field. His most consistent round came on Saturday, when he shot 3-under-par 69. Snedeker had some brilliant runs, including five consecutive birdies through No. 12 in a first-round 71, three birdies in a row through No. 16 in a 71 in round three and four consecutive birdies through No. 11 in his closing 70. However, Snedeker had too many stumbles that broke his momentum in those three rounds, as he learned that there is trouble on every hole on the Stadium Course. He hit two-thirds of the fairways and greens, but he took 58 putts on the weekend after needing only 52 the first two days.
4. Adam Scott, Australia -- Playing for the first time since becoming the first Aussie to win the Masters and claim his initial major title, Scott was in the conversation at the Players Championship until he managed only two birdies while posting a 3-over-par 75 in the third round. He wound up in a tie for 19th at TPC Sawgrass, where he won the title in 2004 but had missed the cut in two of his last four appearances. ... Scott is yet another player who is taking two weeks off after the Players before teeing up again at the Memorial Tournament, which he will be playing for the seventh time. He went to a reduced schedule last year in order to focus on the majors, and since it paid off even before he won at Augusta, we might not see him after Muirfield Village until the U.S. Open next month at Merion. The Aussie has finished no worse than 15th in the last five majors, including his heartbreaking loss in the Open Championship last year at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. ... Scott was among the leaders when he opened with 68-69 last week in the Players, but after carding 10 birdies in his first two rounds, he could manage only six more on the weekend. Only two of those came on Saturday, when he was still on the edge of contention as he came to the island green at No. 17 and hit his tee ball long and into the water. Scott hit in the neighborhood of 75 percent of the fairways and greens, but he averaged 30.3 putts per round with his long putter.
5. Phil Mickelson, United States -- Despite coming off a late collapse in the Wells Fargo Championship, Mickelson said he was excited about the Players Championship, but then he shot 72-73--145 and missed the cut by one stroke. It was his second missed cut in 11 tournaments this season and the fifth in his 20 appearances in the so-called Fifth Major, but the first since 2000. ... Lefty has played in the HP Byron Nelson Championship 15 times previously, winning the tournament in 1996, but he is skipping the tournament at TPC Las Colinas this week. In fact, there are no further events listed on the schedule page at philmickelson.com, so it's anybody's guess as to when we will see him next. It's possible that his next appearance will come in two weeks at the Memorial, which he has played 13 times, including last year. ... Mickelson was inside the cut-line last week at TPC Sawgrass and needed only a par while finishing on the ninth hole in round two to play on the weekend. However, he hit his tee shot into the water, needed five to reach the green and was gone when he closed with a bogey 6. He played the par-5 holes in 1 over in the second round, when he seemed to be safe before carding bogeys on two of his last three holes. Lefty could have broken par on Thursday, but he hit his tee shot into the water on the 14th hole, needed five to reach the green and took a double-bogey 6, his only really big number in 36 holes.
6. Dustin Johnson, United States -- After missing the Wells Fargo Championship a week earlier because of a wrist injury, Johnson opened with a 2-over-par 74 last week in the Players Championship and then withdrew before the start of round two because of a back injury. He warmed up on the range on Friday at TPC Sawgrass, but then decided not to play because "something didn't feel right." ... After withdrawing from two other recent tournaments, the Ballantine's Championship in South Korea and the Wells Fargo, DJ hopes to play three of the next four weeks following the Players. He will tee it up this week in the HP Byron Nelson Championship, which he played four consecutive seasons before missing the event a year ago because of another back injury. His best finish at TPC Las Colinas was a tie for fourth in 2009, when he posted four rounds in the 60s and wound up four strokes behind winner Rory Sabbatini. DJ also tied for seventh in 2010 and tied for 20th in 2011. He also plans to play in the Memorial in two weeks before defending his title in the St. Jude Classic. ... Johnson has never finished in the top 30 in the Players and was well on his way to perhaps missing the cut for the second time in five appearances. He has not broken 70 in 14 rounds at the Stadium Course and was under par last week only when he holed a 26-foot putt on No. 10, his first of the day in round one. Johnson carded the first of his five bogeys on No. 12 and then hit two bunkers and then three-putted from 31 feet to card a double-bogey 6 at No. 15.
7. Luke Donald, England -- The inability to go low like much of the field in benign conditions Thursday and one bad hole in round three kept Donald from being a factor Sunday in the Players Championship. He posted scores of 3-under-par 69 in the second and fourth rounds to wind up in a tie for 19th at TPC Sawgrass, but he was unable to finish in the top 10 for the third consecutive year and the fourth time overall. ... Donald is going to take one week off before heading back to the European Tour for the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, near London. He has won the tournament the last two years, helping him hold the No. 1 spot in the World Golf Rankings for a total of 56 weeks over the last two years. He also tied for second, one stroke behind winner Simon Khan, in 2010. Luke probably will rejoin the PGA Tour the following week for the Memorial Tournament, which he has played eight times, finishing in the top 15 in each of his last four appearances. ... Donald opened with a 72, making only two birdies, in round one last week on the Stadium Course, but he played well the rest of the way except for the seventh hole in round three. There, he hit two balls into the water and carded a triple-bogey 7, the only big number he had all week on his way to a 73. Donald's ball-striking could have been better, as he hit 35 of 54 fairways and 43 of 72 greens in regulation, but he averaged a very good 27.0 putts per round on the treacherous greens.
8. Matt Kuchar, United States -- Following a strong start, Kuchar went the way of the previous 39 defending champions in the Players Championship, as nobody has won the tournament two consecutive years. He opened with 71-66 to rank among the leaders, then struggled through an ugly weekend, shooting 75-76 with a bad start on Saturday and a terrible finish on Sunday to drop into a tie for 48th. ... Kooch has played 11 times on the PGA Tour this season and is going well despite his troubles at TPC Sawgrass, so he's playing in both of the events in Texas the next two weeks. This will be his sixth appearance in the last seven years in the HP Byron Nelson Championship, with his only top-10 finish a tie for sixth two years ago, three strokes out of the playoff in which Keegan Bradley beat Ryan Palmer. Last year, he ranked among the leaders when he started with 66-68, but he played the weekend in 70-72 and slid to a tie for 15th. ... Kuchar sprinkled seven birdies across his scorecard Friday but only could manage to equal that number over the last 36 holes. He took himself out of contention early in round three by playing a stretch of four holes in 5 over par, capped by a double bogey at No. 5, where his first three shots wound up in sand. Hoping for a strong finish, Kuchar instead hit his last two tee shots into the water in the final round and took a double-bogey 5 at No. 17 and a triple-bogey 7 on the final hole. He got lucky on Saturday when his tee shot at No. 17 hit the woodwork but stayed on the green.
9. Webb Simpson, United States -- Simpson broke 70 for the first time in 11 rounds at the Players Championship when he opened with a 5-under-par 66, but he could not break 70 the rest of the way and finished in a tie for 15th. Still, it easily bested his previous high finish at TPC Sawgrass, a tie for 69th in 2011, as he missed the cut in three of his previous four appearances in the Fifth Major before this year. ... Simpson has yet to commit to any PGA Tour events before he defends his title next month in the U.S. Open at Merion, but it figures that he will play in two weeks at the Memorial Tournament for the fifth consecutive year. Last season, he missed the cut in the Players and the Memorial before being the last man standing at the Olympic Club in San Francisco in the second major of the season. Webb said on media day for the U.S. Open two weeks ago that he can't wait to get to the East Course at Merion, which he has played in the 2005 U.S. Open and in corporate outings. ... Simpson was bogey-free in the first round last week at the Stadium Course, carding three consecutive birdies through the eighth hole. He followed with a 71 that had him in good shape heading to the weekend, but he carded seven bogeys on the way to a 74 in the third round that took him out of contention. Simpson salvaged a closing 70 with four birdies in a span of eight holes through No. 16.
10. Justin Rose, England -- It was another short week for Rose in the Players Championship, as he recorded a score of 72-74--146 and missed the cut by two strokes. He failed to reach the weekend for the first time in nine stroke-play events on the PGA Tour, since the Deutsche Bank Championship in the FedEx Cup playoffs last September, but it was his fifth missed cut in 10 appearances at TPC Sawgrass, the last coming in 2010. ... Rosy is going to take a week off before going home to England for the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, outside London, where he will be playing for the 10th time. He hopes to break through in the flagship event on the European Tour after finishing second twice in his last five appearances. He will rejoin the PGA Tour the following week for the Memorial Tournament, which he captured in 2010 for the first of his four victories on the U.S. tour. ... The shot that proved most costly to Rose last week in the Players was his tee ball on No. 13 in round two, which he hit into the water en route to a double-bogey 5. That came after he carded three birdies in a span of four holes to get inside the cut-line, and he carded two more bogeys down the stretch and was on his way out of town. Rose was 2 under par after nine holes in the first round but could not record another birdie and finished at even par when he took bogeys on the 12th and 13th holes.
11. Lee Westwood, England -- Westwood was the only player in the field without a blemish on his scorecard through the first two rounds of the Players Championship after opening with 69-66, and he was only two strokes behind leader Sergio Garcia. However, he got a bad break on his first shot of round three and never really recovered, even though he hung in to finish in a tie for eighth, his fourth consecutive top-10 finish on the PGA Tour. ... Westy is taking a week off before heading home to England for the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. In addition to the tournament, he has plenty of catching up to do with family and friends since he moved from Worksop, the only hometown he had ever known, to South Florida last December. Westwood never has won the flagship event of the European Tour, but he has finished second twice. He plans to return to the PGA Tour the following week for the Memorial Tournament, which he has played only in 2003. ... Westwood's tee shot on the first hole Saturday left him trying to hit his approach with his backside against a tree just off the fairway. He appeared to have enough room on his practice swing, but then he whiffed on the shot when his club and left hand hit the tree. That led to a double-bogey 6, and he added another one three holes later on his way to a 74, and he closed with a 74. Westwood hit 38 of 54 fairways and 55 of 72 greens in regulation, but he struggled on the greens in the last two rounds, taking a total of 35 putts after needing only 54 the first two days.
12. Bubba Watson, United States -- Still trying to find his best stuff, Bubba could not break 70 in any of his four rounds and finished in a tie for 37th in the Players Championship. It was better than missing the cut, which he did in three of his first five appearances at TPC Sawgrass, but he still has not finished in the top 30 in the so-called Fifth Major. ... Watson is going to take two weeks off before playing next in the Memorial Tournament, making the trip to Jack Nicklaus' tournament for the eighth consecutive year. That might be his last event before the U.S. Open next month, and he hopes to figure out the course at Muirfield Village, where he has never finished in the top 20 and has missed the cut twice, including last year. Bubba has the game to play any course the way he moves the ball, so it's simply a matter of time before his magic returns. ... After opening with a 1-over-par 73, Watson rallied with four birdies on the back nine in the second round on the Stadium Course to shoot 70 and make the cut with a stroke to spare. He might have broken 70 in round three, but he hit his approach into a bunker to the right of the green, needed two more shots to reach the green and carded a double-bogey 6. That was the first of his three doubles on the weekend, as the next day he hit into the water on the same hole and made another 6, then drove into a fairway bunker and needed four shots to reach the 10th green. That led to another 6 on his way to a closing 73.
13. Keegan Bradley, United States -- Bradley's recent skid continued when he posted a score of 70-77--147 and missed the cut by three strokes in the Players Championship. It was his second consecutive missed weekend, the other coming in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, after he finished in the top 10 in four consecutive PGA Tour events earlier in the season. ... Bradley, with 13 PGA Tour events under his belt already this season, is going to keep right on playing this week in the HP Byron Nelson Championship, which he won two years ago as a rookie for the first of his three victories on the circuit. He opened with a 4-under-par 66 and closed with a 68 before beating Ryan Palmer with a par on the first playoff hole. Keegan used that as a springboard to his major breakthrough later in the year, when he captured the PGA Championship, also in a playoff, over Jason Dufner. He tied for 24th last year as defending champion at Las Colinas, opening with 67-68 but playing the weekend in 71-72. ... Bradley sprinkled seven birdies across his scorecard in the first round last week in his third trip to TPC Sawgrass, including five in his first seven holes after starting at No. 10. However, he hit his third shot into the water and took a double-bogey 7 at No. 11 and finished on the front with three consecutive bogeys. He still was inside the cut-line on Friday before making two bogeys and two more doubles on the last four holes, the second on No. 18, where he needed a birdie to play on the weekend but instead drove into the water.
14. Steve Stricker, United States -- It appeared that Stricker's plan to play less and still play well this season was going to pay off again when he started with a 5-under-par 67 last week in the first round of the Players Championship. However, he could not break 70 the rest of the way and wound up in a tie for 37th. He still has finished in the top 10 only once in 17 appearances at TPC Sawgrass, when he tied for sixth in 1999. ... It's back home to Wisconsin for Strick, who is cutting back to possibly 11 tournaments this season at age 46, and we probably will not see him again until the U.S. Open next month at Merion. The only other events we know for sure that he will play are the three remaining majors, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the John Deere Classic, which he considers his home event and a tournament he won in 2009, 2010 and 2011. That will get him to 11, unless he decides he has a chance to win the FedEx Cup, in which case he will play in the PGA Tour playoffs. ... Stricker started on the back nine in round one last week on the Stadium Course and reeled off five birdies in a span of seven holes through No. 17, but he never found that form the rest of the way. He spoiled his second round when he needed five shots to reach the 14th green and took a double-bogey 6. After a mediocre 72 in round three, he drove into the water on the final hole Sunday to record a double-bogey 6 and close with an ugly 76.
14. Hunter Mahan, United States -- Bouncing back from a recent slump, Mahan played solid golf much of the way in the Players Championship before closing with a 3-over-par 75, but he still finished in a tie for 19th. He had finished in the top 25 in seven consecutive events before missing the cut twice and missing the secondary cut on two other occasions in his last four starts. ... Mahan is taking a week off, passing on the HP Byron Nelson Championship, even though he lives in Colleyville, Texas, only about a half-an-hour drive from TPC Las Colinas. He played in the tournament for seven consecutive years through 2010 but never finished in the top 40. Hunter will be back next week for the other event in the Dallas area, the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, which he will play for the 10th consecutive season. ... Hunter opened with a bogey-free 67 last week at TPC Sawgrass and followed with a 70 the next day that included only a single bogey. He managed a 71 in the third round, but things started to come unraveled because he carded double bogeys on the eighth and 15th, even though his ball stayed dry on both holes. Mahan salvaged the round by chipping in for eagle from 30 yards on the 18th hole. After recording only two bogeys, plus those doubles, on the first three days, he had five bogeys in his closing round. Mahan gave himself enough chances by hitting a shade under 70 percent of the greens, but he could have done better than his average of 29.0 putts per round.
16. Ernie Els, South Africa -- After flying back from a second-place finish in the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters, Els shot 73-73--146 and missed the cut by two strokes in the Players Championship. The reigning Open champion missed the weekend for the third time in eight stroke-play events on the PGA Tour this season, all in his last five outings, and missed the cut for the sixth time in 20 appearances at TPC Sawgrass. ... Following a week off, Els will head to England for the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, where he still owns a home even though he lives most of the year in West Palm Beach, Fla. He's never won the flagship event of the European Tour in 16 tries, but he did capture the World Match Play Championship a record seven times through 2007 before the event was moved from Wentworth. He plans to be back on the PGA Tour the following week at the Memorial Tournament, which he won in 2004. ... Els dug himself a big hole early in round two last week at the Players, carding three consecutive bogeys and four in a span of five holes through No. 7. He tried to rally at the finish, recording three birdies in the last four holes, but that was not enough to get him through to the weekend. Even though he talks about going back to the conventional putter, Ernie is sticking with his belly model, and he took 30 putts Thursday and 31 Friday, missing eight times inside 10 feet and taking two three-putts.
17. Ian Poulter, England -- Following a three-week break after he missed the cut in the Masters, Poulter shot 71-75--146 and again failed to reach the weekend at the Players Championship, missing by two shots. He didn't miss the weekend in any of the 21 stroke-play tournaments he played on both major tours last season, although this was the third time he missed the cut in 10 appearances at TPC Sawgrass. ... One of the best, if not the best match player in the world, Poulter is off to play this week in the Volvo World Match Play Championship, which is being played for the first time at Thracian Cliffs Golf Course in Kavarna, Bulgaria. He won the title two years ago, beating Luke Donald in the final, 2 and 1, then finished in a tie for ninth a year ago, both at Finca Cortesin Golf Club in Casares, Spain. Poults also captured the 2010 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, beating Paul Casey in the final, 4 and 2. He will play next week in the BMW PGA Championship in England and has not yet to indicated when he will return to the PGA Tour. It might not be until the U.S. Open next month. ... Poulter was under par last week in the Players only after he birdied the third hole in round one. He made a mess of the sixth hole, hitting into a fairway bunker and then into the water en route to a double-bogey 6. He followed that with three bogeys in four holes through No. 17. Poults tried to rally on Friday with birdies on the sixth and seventh holes, adding another at No. 16, but they were not nearly enough.
18. Jason Dufner, United States -- After a solid start in the Players Championship, Dufner had a chance for a top-10 finish heading to the final round but closed with an 8-over-par 80 that included three double bogeys. He plummeted 49 spots on the leaderboard to a tie for 62nd after he had an opportunity to better his top finish at TPC Sawgrass, a tie for sixth in 2011. ... Dufner, having played 13 events this year, appearing on both major tours, is going to play both of the next two tournaments in Texas, starting with his title defense in the HP Byron Nelson Championship. He posted four scores in the 60s to claim a one-stroke victory over Dicky Pride only a few weeks after earning his first PGA Tour victory in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and also getting married. Duf almost won again the following week in the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial before fading with a 74 in the final round to finish second, and he will make the short trip back to Colonial next week. ... Dufner opened with 71-67 last week on the Stadium Course, although his first round could have been better. He got to 4 under when he holed his second shot for eagle on the 18th hole after starting on the back nine, but he carded three bogeys in the first five holes of the front nine. No. 18 got him back, as he played the hole in 5 over the last three days, despite hitting the ball in the water only on Saturday, when he made a double-bogey 6. Duf closed the tournament with another double bogey, his two others Sunday coming on the second and 14th holes.
19. Graeme McDowell, Northern Ireland -- Playing for the first time since his victory in the RBC Heritage, G-Mac shot 70-76--146 in the Players Championship and missed the cut by two strokes. He has finished in the top 10 four times in eight tournaments on the PGA Tour this season, but he also has missed the cut three times, the others coming in the Northern Trust Open and the Masters. He failed to reach the weekend at TPC Sawgrass for the second time in his six appearances, the other coming last year. ... McDowell is playing this week in the Volvo World Match Play Championship at Thracian Cliffs Golf Course in Kavarna, Bulgaria. Big-hitting Nicolas Colsaerts beat him in the final last year, 1 up, and the Irishman also tied for fifth the year before, when Colsaerts also eliminated him, 2 and 1. Both of those events were played at Finca Cortesin Golf Club in Casares, Spain. Next week, Graeme will be in England for the BMW PGA Championship, and he might not return to the PGA Tour until the U.S. Open next month. ... McDowell made an appearance on the leaderboard last week in the Players when he carded three consecutive birdies through No. 5 to get to 4 under par while finishing round one on the front nine. However, he recorded bogeys on the sixth and ninth holes to spoil what could have been a sub-70 round before losing it completely on Friday. His only birdie in round two came at the second hole, but he still was inside the cut-line until driving into the rough at No. 12. He needed four shots to reach the green and took a double-bogey 6.
20. Zach Johnson, United States -- Despite playing some of his best golf of the year and looking at times like the guy who won twice on the PGA Tour last season, two bad holes kept Johnson from a high finish in the Players Championship. He opened with a 6-under-par 66, equaling his best score of the year, but could not break 70 the rest of the way and wound up in a tie for 19th. ... Zach is taking a week off before defending his title in the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, which he also won in 2010. He has another title defense coming up in July at the John Deere Classic, which is perhaps the second biggest of his nine PGA Tour victories, behind only the 2007 Masters. That's because he grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and considers the tournament at TPC Deere Run his home event. ... After his brilliant first round last week at TPC Sawgrass, Johnson seemed to be on his way to another when he carded three birdies in his first seven holes after starting on the back nine the next day. However, he made bogeys on two of his last five holes and had to settle for a 71. Two bad holes cost him on the weekend. He drove into a fairway bunker on No. 7 in round three, needed four shots to reach the green and then three-putted from 10 feet for a triple-bogey 7 on his way to a 76. Zach was rolling along at 4 under through 12 holes on Sunday before hitting his tee ball into the water at No. 13. He took a triple-bogey 6 while closing with a 70.
