Points last week: 198

Points this year: 1570

Overall Ranking: 969 (99th percentile)


Group A


Sergio Garcia-- The depth of this week's field is the weakest in almost a month and that really shows up in the Group A pool. Sergio Garcia has played well since the start of last year's FedExCup Playoffs and he looked good last week at the WGC-Cadillac Championship where he tied for third place.


Jason Dufner-- He played well in the Middle East at the start of the season, but then struggled on the PGA Tour for the last month. He played well last week at Doral where he tied for 12th place and I'm hoping that momentum rolls into this week.




Michel Thompson, Geoff Ogilvy, Brandon de Jonge



Group B


Webb Simpson-- He came into last week with consecutive top 6 finishes and looked just ok last week at Doral, where he tied for 20th place. I like him this week mostly because he has a good recent record at the Copperhead Course, with a T13 in '10, a second place in '11 and a T10 last year.


Matt Kuchar-- He came into last week off of a championship at the WGC-Accenture Match Play, but he couldn't get anything going at Doral and finished in a disappointing T35. Kuchar did finish T10 at the TBC last year and I'm hoping for a rebound this week after last week's lackluster performance.


Jim Furyk-- He looked good at this year's NTO, where he tied for 13th place, but he couldn't get anything going last week at Doral. His recent record at the Copperhead Course is very good, with a championship in '10, a T13 in '11 and a tie for second place last year.


Luke Donald-- Donald actually play well last week at Doral, but he finished well back in the pack due to carding a double-bogey at the 18th hole in all four rounds. He is the defending champion here and I expect that he will be near the top of the leaderboard on the weekend.




John Senden, Louis Oostheizen, Nick Watney, K.J. Choi, Jimmy Walker



Group C


Adam Scott-- Scott was playing well going into Doral and he caught fire on the weekend where the highlight was a final round of 8-under-par 64 to shot him up the leaderboard to a tie for third place. His record at the TBC is nothing to get excited about, so he is about playing the hot hand.


Scott Piercy-- I think this spot is very close between Jason Day, Robert Garrigus and Scott Piercy. Garrigus looked horrible at Doral and Day had a nice second round, but had his problems in the first and third rounds to finish in a tie for 33rd place. Piercy on the other hand has played well for most of the season and he did finish in fifth place at Tampa last year.




Jason Day, Robert Garrigus, Bryce Molder, Patrick Cantlay


Coming Wednesday


And the analysis doesn't end here. Rotoworld's Rob Bolton and I will be co-hosting a one-hour live chat WEDNESDAY at NOON ET. We will be breaking down the field at the Tampa Bay Championship and answering your questions. Simply return to the golf home page to join in on the chatter.
