Devil Ball Power Rankings: Kuch cruises to the top of the heap

It's time for the latest Devil Ball Power Rankings, our look at who's up and who's down in the world of golf. Your panelists are an esteemed group of the world's greatest golf journalists ... or so our mothers tell us. Devil Ball Golf's Jay Busbee and Jonathan Wall, CBS Sports/Eye on Golf's Shane Bacon, and Golf Channel/Golf Talk Central's Ryan Ballengee bring you these, our rankings. Enjoy, and read on to see how you can be a part of the festivities.

T1. Luke Donald. He and Rory McIlroy are passing the No. 1 ranking back and forth like a baby with a full diaper. Somebody needs to claim that baby and clean it up.

T1. Matt Kuchar. Snooch to the Kuch! Congrats to one of golf's good cats on his big Players win. Now, it's been a few days...time for an encore, isn't it?

3. Rory McIlroy. Rors once said that Sawgrass in real life was a lot different from Sawgrass the video game. Clearly McIlroy is one of those "accidentally kick the reset button when he's losing" kind of video game players.

4. Bubba Watson. Who? Didn't this guy used to golf?

5. Rickie Fowler. We are prepared to declare Rickie Fowler the past, present and future of golf. We are the Golf Media, and we are never given to ridiculous overstatement.

6. Hunter Mahan
. I would give Mahan two dollars American if he would carry a full glass of water on his flat brim up one fairway at his next tournament. Same deal for you, Fowler.

7. Lee Westwood. Win or GTFO, Lee.

8. Phil Mickelson. If you can read this article on Lefty's generosity and still bust on him as a fraud, you're an idiot.

9. Justin Rose. Before stumbling to a T51 at The Players, Rose was quietly putting together a very good season. Better days ahead for Axl's brother, we're sure.

10. Tiger Woods. Next week he could be No. 1 or he could be No. 100. You just never know with this cat.

Also receiving votes: Jason Dufner, Louis Oosthuizen, Carl Pettersson, Martin Laird,
