2013 PREVIEW: For the second straight year, Mark Wilson got off to a fast start — winning for the fifth time and earning more than $1.7 million before the TOUR headed to Florida. If the former UNC standout can find a way to carry that momentum throughout the year, he could take the next step.

2012 DEFINING MOMENT: A career-low 62 in the second round that included eight birdies and an eagle helped stake Wilson to victory at the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation. The win was his third in 53 weeks. –- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: What a nice man and what a good player Wilson has become. He almost won the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, losing to Hunter Mahan on the 17th green in the semifinals. Struggled with his game during a mini slump during the summer but finished strong with a Top 10 at The McGladry Classic. Mark took his extended family to Maui for the Hyundai and helped to personally jump-start the economy. He’ll be returning to Hyundai after his win at Humana. — Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio

BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: King of the West Coast Swing, with three titles in the last two years as well as a solo third at the WGC-Match Play this past February. After that, however, he picked off just one top 25 in his final 19 starts, and that was a T24 at the RBC Heritage. The 38-year-old horse for certain courses would have to maintain that unlikely trend to retain his fantasy value. It’s not a hopeful recipe, however. — Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
