Power Rankings: Transitions Championship

RSS

The Florida Swing rolls along I-4 into Tampa for this week's Transitions Championship. The course and the tournament may be one of the most underrated by fans, but every week is a big one in fantasy. Luke Donald and Charl Schwartzel headline the field at Innisbrook, as well as last week's winner Justin Rose.

Take a look at our fantasy rankings for this week, then tweet out your picks using the hashtag #GCFantasy and send them to me @RyanBallengeeGC. Also be sure to join the Golf Channel Fantasy Challenge to test yourself against our panel of experts, including defending champion Win McMurry.

1. Martin Laird: Laird was T-5 here last year on a course that suits his form. He's driving the ball long and straight. Before Doral, he was 16th on Tour in total driving.

2. Justin Rose: Last week's winner putted beautifully down the stretch at Doral. Rose was T-5 and T-13 in his last two Tampa starts.

3. Charl Schwartzel: Schwartzel continues his roll with a T-4 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. It is his first start at Innisbrook, however.

4. Nick Watney: Off to a lukewarm start, Watney may be ready to turn that corner at the Copperhead. He was in the top 13 in his last three starts here.

5. Webb Simpson: With a chance to win here last year, a 3-putt on the 72nd hole gave away the win. Despite a poor final round at Doral, Simpson is again playing consistent golf.

6. Luke Donald: The world No. 2 finished T-6 last week at Doral, ending a small slide bridging 2011 and '12. He was T-6 here in his last Tampa start in 2010 as well.

7. Brandt Snedeker: Among the leaders on Tour against scoring average, Snedeker has two top-8 finishes in his last four Tampa starts.

8. Bo Van Pelt: BVP has been in the top 10 in his last two medal play starts and has a pair of top-10 finishes in Tampa.

9. John Huh: The Question Mark is back for his second start after winning in Mexico. It's his first Tampa start, but confidence can go a long way.

10. Sergio Garcia: Garcia is a flier this week, especially with that 12 at Doral still very fresh. He was perfect through 36 holes here last year, however.
