“Pure Spin”

Rank last week: N/A

Overall Ranking: 388

Total Points: 1,214




Tiger Woods- Woods disappointed last week at the Match Play, but he does have a victory in his last stroke play event and he returns to a course that he tied for second place last year.


Graeme McDowell-- I hate to fade Rory McIlroy, but he really hasn't played that well this year. McDowell played well in the Match Play and he has played well in the last two Honda Classics with a T6 in '11 and a T9 last year.




Rory McIlroy, Jason Dufner, Charles Howell III





Justin Rose-- Rose has played well this year, with the highlight being a T2 in Abu Dhabi, and he has a nice record in his last two starts at PGA National as he was  third in '10 and T5 last year.


Louis Oosthuizen-- It could be argued that he was the hottest golfer at the end of last year into the start of this year, with five consecutive top fives, including a championship at the Volvo Champions. He has withdrawn from the last two editions of the Honda, so this week he is more about playing the hot golfer.


Fredrik Jacobson-- Jacobson is hot right now with top 10s in his last three starts on the Tour, including an impressive T9 at last week's Match Play.


Ernie Els-- I think this pick is a real tossup between Keegan Bradley and Els. Els is a past winner of this event, which earns him the spot on this week's roster.




Keegan Bradley, Peter Hanson, Dustin Johnson, John Merrick






Charl Schwartzel-- He disappointed at the Match Play, but before that he was one of the hottest players on the planet with top 5s in seven consecutive worldwide starts. His best finish at The Honda Classic came last year when he tied for fifth place.


Lee Westwood-- Jason Day just dropped out of this week's field, so instead I'm going with Lee Westwood, who has a pair of top 10s ( T9 in '10 and a fourth place last year) in his last three starts at PGA National.




Y.E.Yang, Matteo Manassero, Russell Henley, Henrik Stenson




Coming Wednesday
