It certainly won't be easy, as all of the top 10 players in the world are currently entered, along with someone by the name of Tiger Woods. I'm sure we all know by now about what Tiger did at the Honda Classic last week with the 62, but what is more impressive is looking at his overall statistics on the PGA Tour this year.
Woods currently ranks first on the PGA Tour in total driving (combination of accuracy and distance), first in approaches within 200 yards, first in scrambling, first in putting from 3-5 feet, and second in proximity to hole at 32 feet. What does all of this mean? Tiger is solid from tee to green, and will certainly be a threat to win this week's event.
Phil Mickelson will be well-rested coming off of a two week "siesta" after winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and nearly winning at the Northern Trust Open. The TPC Blue Monster at Doral favors longer hitters who are accurate off the tee, so I expect Phil to play well in this week's event also.
Let's not forget about Rory McIlroy either, who hasn't finished outside the top-5 in an event in what seems like forever. The guy just has it all, whether it is distance off the tee, accuracy with irons, clutch putting, you name it. Add in the confidence he gained from winning last week's event over Tiger Woods, and we could be looking at someone who will stay on top of the world rankings for a long time.
