Power Rankings: WGC Cadillac


The PGA Tour's Florida Swing continues this week with a new World No. 1 and the second World Golf Championships event of the year at the Cadillac Championship. Doral hosts 74 of the world's best players, including all of the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Meanwhile, the PGA Tour hosts the Puerto Rico Open for those who did not qualify for the WGC event. Ryo Ishikawa headlines the field, and our power rankings for that event can be found here.

It's Trump Week on the PGA Tour, however, as The Donald owns both host courses - Doral and Trump International.

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. Tiger Woods: That 62 on Sunday certainly stirred a commotion about Woods' imminent return to the winner's circle, but Tiger has three wins at Doral and six in this event. This week is as good as any for a Tiger win.

2. Rory McIlroy: If there was a 1-a ranking, McIlroy would be it. He finished T-10 here last year, but is playing well enough to take down any course.

3. Phil Mickelson: Mickelson was a winner here in 2009 and finished runner-up in an epic showdown in 2005. He's playing great golf, is rested and likely excited to test himself against McIlroy and Woods.

4. Dustin Johnson: The runner-up here last year, Johnson has come on strong after the iffy start coming off knee surgery. He's been in the top five in his last two stroke play starts.

5. Hunter Mahan: Now wielding a win over the current World No. 1, Mahan is back after a week off following the Match Play. Had his first top-10 finish here and was the leader at the halfway point last year. Maybe he has figured out the Blue Monster.

6. Charl Schwartzel: How the Masters champion is under the radar is a mystery, but Schwartzel has been in the top 5 in four of his last seven global starts, including a T-5 at Honda. He was runner-up here in 2010.

7. Bill Haas: The Riviera winner has been in the top 20 in his prior two stroke play starts. He was T-6 here in 2010.

8. Keegan Bradley: It may be his first appearance at Doral, but the PGA Champion is among the Tour leaders against the field average.

9. Steve Stricker: A winner already to open the year, Stricker is rested. He has been in the top 20 at Doral in his last four starts.

10. Nick Watney: The defending champion ousted Tiger Woods from the Match Play, but is off to an otherwise slow start.
