2013 PREVIEW: Johnson Wagner will be looking to win for the third straight year in 2013. Consistency will be key — all four of Wagner’s top-10 finishes last year came in the first three months of the year.

2012 DEFINING MOMENT: Doing his best Tom Selleck impression with an abundant moustache, Wagner fired a 67 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to win by two strokes. He nearly made it two straight at the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation but his closing 65 left Wagner in second, two strokes behind Mark Wilson. –- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: How can we forget the ‘stache? Johnson grew a mustache during the offseason and after winning the Sony Open, decided to keep the bottlebrush. The mustache never looked good but his golf game was certainly impressive. Johnson is not a long hitter but is a good putter. You seldom see him without a smile on his face. — Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio

BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: Zero top 25s in his final 20 starts of the year, including a pair of unofficial events in Asia. Because he’s so streaky, he’s unreliable in short-term formats. He doesn’t mind a full schedule, so there’s value deep in rosters, but he’s not worth the $2.225 million sticker in salary games. — Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
