Top 10, Plus One

 

Henrik Stenson: Class of the field.

 

Graham DeLaet: Riding the hot, Canadian hand coming off a solid week at The Honda. He’s played twice here at was T9 last year and T24 in 2010.

 

Jeff Overton: Is this the week he finally breaks through? He’s been eighth, T15 and T14 in his last three events here so I would expect him to contend.

 

Josh Teater: TEATER HEATER was married after his T6 at Riviera so it’ll be interesting to see how he gets back on the heater with his new wife by his side.

 

Kevin Stadler: He’s five-for-five with four, top 18s.

 

Bryce Molder: Putt it! He’s posted a T13 and T7 in previous trips to Puerto Rico.

 

John Rollins: No course history but he’s kicked off 2013 five-for-five and four of those are T24 or better.

 

George McNeill: He’s won and been fifth the last two years. Omit at your own risk. He hasn’t finished higher than T28 this season but you shouldn’t worry.

 

Boo Weekley: If he can get anything going on the weekend he should have a chance to be right in the thick of it. In eight weekend rounds this season, he’s broken 70 once.

 

Luke Guthrie: He’ll no question learn from his experience at The Honda Classic so I’d look for him to jump right back into action this week.

 

Patrick Cantlay: After winning by four shots in Colombia he showed that his T9 at Pebble Beach was a sign of things to come. He’d be higher this week but who wins back-to-back on two different tours on two different weeks.

 

 

Sleepers

 

Peter Uihlein: He’s T18, T19, T22 and fourth last week in his last four starts on the European Tour.

 

Brian Stuard: He’s five-for-five to start 2013 and nothing worse than T39.

 

Matt Jones: All four of his finishes are T30 or better including his T18 last weekend with the low round on Sunday (68). He was T5 last year.

 

Nicholas Thompson: He’s hit the top 25 in three of his five starts in 2013.
