AK is in the middle of a two-week break, but his victory in Houston, third-place finish at the Masters, combined with a good history at Quail Hollow (won in 2008) is impossible to ignore.

Jim Furyk
Jim Furyk
The missed cut at Augusta National is the only blemish on a 2010 card that now includes two victories and a resurgent putting stroke that makes him a threat every week.
3
Phil Mickelson

Lefty likely still hasn’t taken off the green jacket, but what remains to be seen is whether he shows up next week at Quail Hollow with the same game.
4
Ernie Els
Ernie Els
Although the “Big Easy” has faded since his torrid Florida Swing, he is still among a short list of title contenders every week he plays.
5
Lee Westwood

The Englishman has been as consistent as anyone this season and his near-miss at Augusta National makes him the undisputed “best player without a major.”
6
Steve Stricker
Steve Stricker
Hasn’t been as sharp as he was earlier in the season, but one of the game’s best short games is impossible to ignore. He’s cooling off, but his victory still weighs heavily.
7
Ian Poulter
Ian Poulter
Goes back to work this week in New Orleans after a disappointing weekend at the Masters. The Englishman is not lacking in confidence and should expect a solid rebound.
8
Camilo Villegas Headshot

The Colombian has been all over the board this year (win, T-16, missed cut, T-38), but his tie for fifth at the Heritage was an indication how versatile his game can be.
9
Tiger Woods
Tiger Woods
The early announcement that he is playing Quail Hollow next week suggests things are different now, but his tie for fourth at Augusta National on less than a full tank is the most telling sign that it’s business as usual.

Fred Couples Power Rankings

Freddy’s 12th-place tie on the Champions Tour this week must’ve felt like a missed cut. Still, his Masters performance and preceding Champions success keep him hanging on this list.
