The Sports Xchange's 2013 PGA Tour rankings, selected by TSX Golf Staff, based on 2012-2013 performance.
1. Tiger Woods, United States -- Officials of the Wells Fargo Championship were confident that Woods was going to play this week in their tournament, which he won in 2007. He also finished fourth when he played at Quail Hollow in 2009 after missing his title defense because of knee surgery. However, agent Mark Steinberg said last week that Woods would not play in Charlotte, giving Tiger a three-week break between the Masters and the Players Championship. ... Woods has missed the cut in his last two appearances at Quail Hollow, in 2010 and last year after finishing no worse than a tie for 11th (in 2005) in his previous four appearances, but that apparently had little to do with his decision. He usually takes three weeks off after the first major of the year, but because of a change in the PGA Tour schedule this season, the Wells Fargo is being played three weeks after the Masters. So, he won't be back until next week at the Players Championship, in which he has not had great success since winning in 2002. ... Tiger did make a commitment to another tournament last week, the AT&T National, of which he is the host, and he will be defending his title near the end of June at Congressional. Woods won the tournament last year by two strokes over Bo Van Pelt, and he also prevailed by one stroke over Hunter Mahan in 2009. He's been pretty good in tournaments that he hosts, having won the World Challenge a record five times at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
2. Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland -- If there's a place for McIlroy to really find his game, it might be at Quail Hollow, where he will be playing this week in the Wells Fargo Championship for the third time. He claimed his first PGA Tour title there in 2010, and after missing the cut as the defending champion, he finished in a tie for second last year, losing out when Rickie Fowler made a birdie to win on the second playoff hole. ... Rory seems to have been getting closer to his 2012 form in three of his last four tournaments, registering a tie for eighth in the WGC-Cadillac Championship, finishing second to Martin Laird of Scotland in the Valero Texas Open and tying for 25th in the Masters, where he played well other than a 7-over-par 79 in the third round. Slow starts have dogged him all season, as he has not broken 70 in the first round in any of his five PGA Tour events, so he must give himself a chance by getting off the blocks quickly on Thursday. ... McIlroy shot 66-62 on the weekend at Quail Hollow three years ago to claim a four-stroke victory over Phil Mickelson, finishing with an exclamation point when he holed a 40-foot birdie putt on the final hole. However, he shot 75-72--147 the following year to miss the cut in his title defense. Last year, he shot 69-68 in the middle rounds before closing with a 2-under-par 70, making a bogey on No. 17 and missing a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole that would have given him the victory.
3. Brandt Snedeker, United States -- Snedeker remains second in the FedEx Cup standings thanks to a brilliant run early this season, but he has not fully regained that form after an hip injury put him on the sideline for two months. He did have his moments in the Masters before closing with a 3-over-par 75 at Augusta to finish in a tie for sixth, but he came back the following week with an unimpressive tie for 59th in the RBC Heritage, and he has not broken 70 in 11 of his last 12 rounds. ... Sneds has not finished better than a tie for 55th in three appearances at the Wells Fargo Championship, so it was easy for him to pass on the tournament, having not teed it up there since 2010. He will be looking to reverse his fortunes in the Players Championship next week because he also has not done well at TPC Sawgrass, missing the cut in his last four appearances after tying for 12th in 2007. ... Snedeker said the strained intercostal muscle he sustained earlier this season is healed and that the break actually came at a good time because he had played five times in the first six weeks of the season. He believes that might have helped in his strong performance at the Masters, even though he faltered on Sunday, because he was fresh going into the first major of the year. And he could afford to take some time off, having posted four finishes in the top three, including his victory in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
4. Adam Scott, Australia -- Australian greats Greg Norman and Peter Thomsen, and others, are touting Scott to win more majors now that he has broken through, but it will be interesting to see how his new-found status as Masters champion affects his game moving forward. Many first-time major winners have struggled initially. Bubba Watson has not won in the past year, and some have very good players have not claimed more than one Grand Slam title; see Davis Love III, David Toms and Tom Kite, among others. We'll get our first glimpse of the post-Masters Scott next week in the Players Championship. ... Scott has been a supporter of the big three Australian events at the end of the year, and officials of those tournaments are holding their collective breaths about the Masters champion because he usually plays only two per year. He is defending champion of the Australian Masters, which will be played at Royal Melbourne, so that seems to be a no-brainer. Scott surprisingly didn't claim his first pro victory Down Under until the 2009 Australian Open, probably the biggest of the three events, so he probably will play that one, too. However, the Australian PGA is played at Royal Pines on the Gold Coast, right down the highway from his home at Sanctuary Cove, so that one will be difficult to pass up. ... You knew Steve Williams, Scott's outspoken caddie, would make his own news after the Masters, and he didn't disappoint. Tiger Woods' former bagman said Scott's winning 15-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole at Augusta National might be the highlight of his career because his boss asked him to make the read.
5. Phil Mickelson, United States -- There might be a victory waiting for Lefty at Quail Hollow, where he is playing this week for the 10th consecutive season, because he has played so well in the Wells Fargo Championship. He has finished in the top 10 in six of his nine appearances in the tournament, never missing the cut, although he tied for 26th a year ago, with a tie for 36th in 2005 his worst result in Charlotte. ... Mickelson came closest to winning the tournament in 2010, when he shot 4-under-par 68 in the second and final rounds, only to have Rory McIlroy race past him, leaving him four shots back in second place. Lefty had bookend 67s in 2007, but a 75 in the third round eventually left him a tie for fifth, three strokes behind winner Sean O'Hair. Two years ago, he posted three scores in the 60s but again did himself in on Saturday with a 74 that led to a tie for ninth, five strokes out of the playoff in which Lucas Glover defeated Jonathan Byrd. In 2007, he tied for third, four shots behind winner Tiger Woods. ... You can't say that the first part of Mickelson's season has been a disaster, since he captured the Waste Management Phoenix Open with a brilliant four-day performance, and he finished third in the WGC-Cadillac Championship. However, Mickelson has to be disappointed that he has not found that consistency more often, with only two other finishes in the top 25 and a tie for 54th in his favorite tournament, the Masters.
6. Dustin Johnson, United States -- Johnson was all set to play in the Ballantine's Championship at Blackstone Golf Club in Incheon, South Korea, for the second time in the last three years, but he withdrew early last week because of the political unrest in the region. Zach Johnson and Alvaro Quiros of Spain also decided not to play in the tournament, co-sponsored by the European Tour and the Asian Tour, because of threats made against South Korea by its neighbor, North Korea and that country's leader, Kim Jong-un. ... DJ tied for fourth in the Ballantine's two years ago and planned to play in the event again last year, but he was forced to stay home because of a back injury. After pulling out of the South Korean event, he committed to play for the fourth time in the Wells Fargo Championship this week at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, N.C. It will be a much shorter trip, since he lives part of the year in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Johnson tweeted to his friend and Wells Fargo defending champion, Rickie Fowler, that he was looking forward to giving him a run for his money at Quail Hollow. ... Johnson seems capable of doing exactly that after snapping out of a slump that lasted for three months following his victory to start the season in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. He has missed the cut in two of his three appearances at Quail Hollow, in 2008 and 2011, while finishing in a tie for 29th in 2010. That year, he was in the hunt most of the way after shooting 7-under-par 65 in round two but closed with a 77.
7. Luke Donald, England -- Donald has finally started playing like a guy who has been No. 1 in the World Golf Rankings for 56 weeks in the last two years. He posted his first two top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour this season in his last three tournaments, tying for fourth in the Tampa Bay Championship and tying for third in the RBC Heritage, with a tie for 25th in the Masters sandwiched in between those results. Donald, who has been in the top 10 of the World Golf Rankings for the last 139 weeks, the longest current streak, hopes to bring his best stuff to TPC Sawgrass next week for the Players Championship. ... Luke didn't figure to play in the Wells Fargo Championship this week, having missed the cut three times in his five appearances at Quail Hollow, but he has finished sixth or better in the Players in each of the last two years and three times overall, so he might be ready for a breakthrough in the so-called "Fifth Major." He will arrive in Ponte Vedra Beach in his best form since he captured the Dunlop Phoenix in Japan late last year, his third victory of the season on three continents. ... Donald's normally precise game has been slightly off for most of this season, as he has hit the fairways and greens only a shade over 60 percent of the time. Since he has missed the green so often, he has been able to average a deceptive 28.05 putts per round, but more telling is that he ranks 49th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained-putting at .294.
8. Matt Kuchar, United States -- Kuchar might be ready to make the jump from the talented pack of players who have not claimed a major title, especially after his tie for eighth in the Masters. Before he gets his next chance in a month in the U.S. Open at Merion, he will defend his title next week at the Players Championship. By winning at TPC Sawgrass and following that up with his victory over defending champion Hunter Mahan earlier this year in the final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, he has shown that he is capable of winning with all the best players in the world in the field. ... Kooch, who is third in the FedEx Cup standings behind Tiger Woods and defending Fed Ex champion Brandt Snedeker, has claimed victories in four of the last five PGA Tour seasons, missing only in 2011, when he finished second twice. It's time for him to step up and claim multiple victories in a season for the first time and perhaps make the next one a major. ... Kuchar started his career quickly with two finishes in the top three in only 11 tournaments in 2001, before breaking through for his first victory the following season in the Honda Classic. However, he fell into a deep slump and did not win again until the 2009 Turning Stone Resort Championship. Kooch has since become one of best players around, at No. 10 in the World Golf Rankings, and he leads the PGA Tour with 33 top-10 finishes in the past three-plus seasons.
9. Webb Simpson, United States -- Coming off his playoff defeat to Graeme McDowell in the RBC Heritage, Simpson will play for the 12th time this season this week in the Wells Fargo Championship. He still has not won since the U.S. Open last June at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, but he does have five finishes in the top 10 and 11 in the top 25 during that stretch, so he's probably not that far away from winning on the PGA Tour for the third consecutive season. ... Webb is playing right down the road from his house this week in the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow. The North Carolina native, who graduated from Wake Forest in 2008, had his best chance to win at home last year, taking a one-stroke lead into the final round after sinking a 12-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole Saturday. However, after opening with rounds of 65-68-69, he closed with a 1-over-par 73 and missed by one stroke the playoff in which Rickie Fowler defeated Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points, missing a 25-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole. After carding only four bogeys in the first three rounds, he recorded four on Sunday, including a costly one at the 16th hole that kept him out of the playoff. ... This will be his fifth consecutive appearance at Quail Hollow, and after missing the cut in 2008 and 2009, he finally seemed to figure out the course when he tied for 21st two years ago. If he can continue that upward momentum and pick up where he left off at Harbour Town, this would be the perfect place to claim the fourth victory of his PGA Tour career.
10. Justin Rose, England -- Rosy was on the fringe of contention throughout the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, but he never made a definitive move on the leaders and wound up in a tie for 15th. Still, he finished in the top 25 for the sixth time in as many tournaments on the PGA Tour this season and for the eighth time in eight events on both major tours. That includes runner-up finishes in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and the Arnold Palmer Invitational. If the Englishman keeps putting himself in position, he should win again soon. ... Rose never has played well in his five appearances in the Wells Fargo Championship, failing to finish in the top 25 even once, so he won't be in the field at Quail Hollow this week. He's played only eight times this season on the two major tours, so he should be relatively fresh when he shows up for his 10th appearance in the Players Championship next week. ... Rose opened with 68-69 last week at TPC Louisiana, but he could not go low in the third round and lost contact with the leaders even though he posted a 2-under-par 70. He closed with another 69 and simply did not make enough birdies to really make a push up the leaderboard. His ball-striking was very good, as he hit 39 of 56 fairways and 61 of 72 greens in regulation, but he was not as sharp as he needed to be with the putter. Rose averaged 31.0 putts per round, taking at least 30 each day.
11. Bubba Watson, United States -- In his first tournament since giving up the title of reigning Masters champion, Bubba was a bit inconsistent, but he closed strong to finish in a tie for 15th in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, which he won two years ago. It was his best finish in a stroke-play event since he tied for fourth in the season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions, and he also tied for ninth in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. ... After taking only a week off following his title defense in the Masters, Watson is playing three consecutive weeks on the PGA Tour, moving on to the Wells Fargo Championship this week followed by the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass. He will tee it up at Quail Hollow for the sixth time, and he has only one real strong effort to show for it. Bubba missed the cut in two of his first three appearances in Charlotte before tying for second in 2009, one stroke behind winner Sean O'Hair. He has posted only four scores in the 60s in 19 rounds at Quail Hollow, bested by a 7-under-par 65 in round two in 2009. ... Watson opened with a 1-over-par 73 last week at TPC Louisiana but rallied to make the cut by shooting 7-under-par 65 on Friday, bouncing back with eight birdies after an opening bogey. After a 72 on Saturday, he climbed the leaderboard with a closing 66. He carded seven birdies in each of his low rounds but could manage a total of only five the other two days. Bubba had broken 70 only once in his previous 10 rounds, but with some consistency, he could challenge at Quail Hollow.
12. Keegan Bradley, United States -- Trying to bounce back from a tie for 54th in the Masters, which included a 10-over-par 82 in round three, Bradley instead shot 69-74--143 and missed the cut by two strokes in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. It was his second missed weekend of the season (he also went home early at the Farmers Insurance Open), and his two recent poor outings came after he had finished in the top 10 in four consecutive tournaments. ... Bradley has teed it up 12 times already in the first four months of the PGA Tour season, so he is going to take a week off by skipping the Wells Fargo Championship, having missed the cut and failing to break the par of 72 in his only two appearances at Quail Hollow the last two years. He will be back next week to play in the Players Championship for the third time. ... If Keegan could have one hole back last week at TPC Louisiana, it would be No. 14 in round two after he started his day on the back nine. He mis-hit his first two shots on the 216-yard par-3, finally reached the green in three and missed a six-foot putt to card a double-bogey 5, the margin by which he missed the cut. He played bogey-free golf in his opening 69, but he had his three birdies in the first seven holes before finishing with 11 consecutive pars. Normally a strong ball-striker, he hit under 60 percent of the fairways and greens, and he averaged 29.0 putts per round with his belly putter.
13. Steve Stricker, United States -- Stricker has another week off during this season in which he is cutting back his schedule to what right now amounts to 11 tournaments, but he will be back next week for the Players Championship. He will be playing at TPC Sawgrass for the 17th time and will have to bring his best stuff, because he has missed the cut at Pete Dye's diabolical masterpiece eight times, including last year, and recorded only one top-10 finish. ... Last week, Strick missed the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow, where in 2007 he shot 66-69 on the weekend to finish second, two strokes behind Tiger Woods. Perhaps surprisingly, he has not been back to Charlotte since 2008 to play a course that would seem to fit his game. Even though he has not been as sharp as he was earlier this season, when he finished in the top five in each of his first three tournaments, he was able to post what was a very respectable tie for 20th in the Masters despite it being only his fifth event of the year. ... The 46-year-old Stricker has been content to stay at home with his family for most of this year because although he loves the golf, he does not enjoy the travel. He said at the Masters that things have been warming up in Wisconsin. Although he continued to do most of his work in a double-wide trailer, hitting out into the snow, he said he was able to hit some balls off the grass that finally is growing. Stricker said he works on his game about three hours a day, including putting sessions in his basement.
14. Hunter Mahan, United States -- Trying to bounce back from his worst stretch of the season, including missed cuts in the Shell Houston Open and the Masters plus a 91st-place finish in the RBC Heritage, Mahan tries to get it going again this week in the Wells Fargo Championship. He also missed the secondary cut at Harbour Town, but it does not count as officially missing the cut because he made it through 36 holes. ... Hunter will tee it up at Quail Hollow on Thursday for the 10th consecutive year, and he keeps coming back even though he has never finished in the top 10. He missed the cut in three of first four appearances in the tournament, and he probably would have done the same in 2006, when he was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard after opening with a 9-over-par 81. However, Mahan finished in the top 25 in each of the next four years before tying for 53rd last year, with his best result a tie for 12th in 2007. He has failed to break 70 in 22 of the 26 rounds he has played in the Charlotte event. ... His recent skid came after he finished in the top 25 in seven consecutive tournaments, including second in defense of his title in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, where he lost in the final to Matt Kuchar. Mahan won twice in one season for the first time in his career last year, claiming the Accenture and the Shell Houston Open to get to five PGA Tour victories, but he has not reached the winner's circle since.
15. Lee Westwood, England -- Following a two-week break after yet another top-10 finish in a major without winning, a tie for eighth at the Masters, Westwood returns to the PGA Tour this week at the Wells Fargo Championship. He has played solid if not spectacular golf in his first season living in the United States after moving his family from Worksop, England, late last year. Lee has made the cut in each of his eight tournaments on the PGA Tour, including three finishes in the top 10 and five in the top 25. He made the move in part to better prepare for the three majors that are played in the United States. ... Westy will tee it up this week at Quail Hollow for the fifth time, and he has improved with each appearance. After missing the cut in 2006, he tied for 61st the following year and tied for 38th in 2010. Last year, he finally got into the chase, shooting 68-66 on the weekend to finish in a tie for fifth, three shots out of the playoff in which Rickie Fowler defeated Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points. Those were the first two times he broke 70 on the course in 14 rounds. ... Westwood has spent considerable time at his new home in South Florida working on his short game, and it has paid off. After averaging 30.06 putts last year, he has improved to 28.96. That has helped him get up and down for par more often, as he ranks seventh on the PGA Tour in scrambling at 67.24 percent after being 189th a year ago at 48.30.
16. Ernie Els, South Africa -- Els seemed to be in prime position to make a run in the final round before one shot proved costly late Saturday in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. He hit his second shot into the water on the 16th hole and carded a double-bogey 6 en route to an even-par 72, the only day he did not break 70, and he eventually finished in a tie for 15th. That has to give him confidence moving forward after missing the cut in two of his last three outings. ... Following a three-week run on the PGA Tour that began at the Masters, giving him 12 tournaments played already this season, you might think Els would be looking to take a break. Instead, he is off to play this week in the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters at Royale Jakarta Golf Club before returning to the PGA Tour next week for the Players Championship. Only then will he take a two-week break before flying off again to play in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, outside London, where he still owns a home. ... Ernie played his best golf at TPC Louisiana when he carded a bogey-free 67 in the first round, and he bounced back from his worst round of the tournament on Saturday by closing with a 68. He hit only 33 of 56 fairways and 49 of 72 greens in regulation, but he averaged 26.5 putts per round with his belly model. He has talked about going back to a conventional putter, but he is sticking with the longer one for now.
17. Ian Poulter, England -- After missing the cut in the Masters, the first time he missed the weekend since the 2011 Deutsche Bank Championship 21 events ago on the PGA Tour, Poulter added the Wells Fargo Championship to his schedule. He is trying to cut back after a busy schedule around the world last season, but apparently he figured he needed more competitive work ahead of the Players Championship next week after playing only six times this year. ... Poults is making his fifth appearance at Quail Hollow and seems to have figured out the course after missing the cut in his first two tries in 2005 and 2007. He tied for 25th in 2008 and posted his best finish with a tie for fifth in 2009, winding up three strokes behind champion Sean O'Hair. When he closed with a 3-under-69 that year, it was the first time he broke par in 12 rounds on the course. He is a combined 10 under in his last two appearances in Charlotte. ... After tying for ninth in the season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions, Poulter took six weeks off and played well when he returned, finishing fourth in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. However, he has not posted a result in the top 20 since, with his best finish a tie for 21st in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he was in the conversation before closing with a 3-over-par 75. Poulter has failed to break 70 in seven of his last eight rounds and has hit the fairways and greens less that 60 percent of the time this season. His putter has bailed him out at times, as he ranks 19th in strokes gained putting at .626, and 24th with an average of 28.29 putts per round.
18. Jason Dufner, United States -- In the first title defense of his PGA Tour career, Duf played his best golf in only one round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. He shot 5-under-par 67 in the third round on his way to a tie for 42nd. He's hoping for better when he is the title defender again at the HP Byron Nelson Championship in two weeks. ... With 12 tournaments under his belt already this season, including two on the Middle East swing of the European Tour, Dufner is taking a break this week. Duf is taking a pass on the Wells Fargo Championship after missing the cut in three of his four appearances at Quail Hollow, the exception being a tie for fifth in 2009. He will be back next week to tee it up in the Players Championship for the fifth time. ... Dufner opened with 71-71--142 last week at TPC Louisiana to make the cut right on the number, avoiding his third missed weekend of the season. He missed the cut only once in his breakthrough season last year at the age of 35. After carding a bogey on the 15th hole on Friday, he closed with three consecutive pars to get through to the last two rounds. After recording a total of seven birdies in the first two rounds, he had that many in round three alone before making only two on Sunday. He made only one big number all week, hitting his tee ball into the water and taking a double-bogey 5 at No. 3 while closing with a 72.
19. Graeme McDowell, Northern Ireland -- G-Mac rose 10 spots to No. 8 in the World Golf Rankings two weeks ago by winning the RBC Heritage, and he figures to remain in the top 10 heading into the Players Championship next week. Despite missing the cut in the Masters, you could see him coming, because he had been in contention several times already this season. He tied for fifth in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, tied for ninth in the Honda Classic and tied for third in the WGC-Cadillac Championship, finishing behind only winner Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker. ... McDowell is skipping the Wells Fargo Championship this week, no big surprise, as he has not been back since shooting 76-75--151 to miss the cut by six strokes in his only appearance at Quail Hollow in 2008. However, he will be busy in May, because after the Players he has committed to the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in England for the 11th consecutive year, and the Volvo World Match Play Championship, which he lost in the final to Nicolas Colsaerts last year, in Bulgaria. ... G-Mac had not won anywhere in the world since claiming the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and three other titles in 2010 before he broke through to capture the unofficial World Challenge last December. He had multiple victories on the European Tour in 2008, claiming the Ballantine's Championship and the Barclays Scottish Open, so winning at Harbour Town could lead to more since he has a history of winning in bunches.
20. Zach Johnson, United States -- After consultations in recent weeks by his management team with the State Department, Zach decided to withdraw from the Ballantine's Championship at Blackstone Golf Club in Incheon, South Korea, because of political unrest on the Korean Peninsula. Actually, Johnson had some talks of his own with his wife and mother that might have weighed just as heavily on his decision not to fly into the troubled region, where North Korea and its leader, Kim Jong-un, have made nuclear and other threats against South Korea. Dustin Johnson and Alvaro Quiros of Spain also withdrew. ... Johnson added that he spoke to people with knowledge of the situation in South Korea and was told that things were not as bad as some might assume and that he would be safe, but he decided not to take the chance. Zach added that he did not want to get stuck in South Korea if the situation escalated and flights were canceled. He said tournament organizers were sympathetic when he told them he wasn't coming, and he said he hopes to play in the Ballantine's in the future. ... With an opening created in his schedule, Johnson then committed to the Wells Fargo Championship this week, a week ahead of the Players Championship. He didn't have the tournament on his schedule because the planned long trip to South Korea, but now he will be teeing it up at Quail Hollow for the 10th consecutive year. Johnson's only top-10 finish in the tournament was a tie for sixth in 2011, when he opened with a 1-over-par 73 before reeling off scores of 69-67-68.
