|2010 Power Rankings: Week 36|
Faded on the weekend at TPC Boston, but opening rounds of 66-65 continued a blistering pace and moved the FedEx Cup leader atop the Power Rankings as well, to say nothing of Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin’s “wish list” for a good swingman.
The German drops in the ranking but it’s more a matter of inactivity – he hasn’t played since the PGA Championship – than it is ineffective play.
|Cue “Mr. September.” Stricker has played his best golf in the playoffs and he hasn’t disappointed so far with a tie for third at The Barclays and last week’s ninth-place showing.|
|Few, if any, are hotter than the Italian right now and his runner-up to Miguel Angel Jimenez at the European Masters only solidifies his selection to the European Ryder Cup team.|
|Another tough Sunday for the young Aussie but he keeps working his way into the hunt and may have the best short game of all the current “Gen Xers.”|
|Monty may be concerned with the Northern Irishman’s form, to say nothing of his penchant for the occasional blow-up round, like that second-day 76 in Boston which led to his tie for 37th.|
|The South African has cooled considerably since the Open Championship and his missed cut at the European Masters doesn’t help his Power Ranking chances.|
|Took some time to recover from early-season wrist injury but he has four top-10s in his last six starts and his finish at TPC Boston was clinical.|
|Emboldened by his selection to the European Ryder Cup team, the Englishman was cruising at the Deutsche Bank until Hurricane Hoffman blew by him.|
|Been a long, slow slide for the Northern Irishman since his U.S. Open triumph. Not being able to take part in the FedEx Cup has a lot to do with that.|
