1
Ernie Els
Ernie Els
Lackluster performance in Houston isn’t enough to knock the Big Easy from the top spot. He’ll be ready to go this week again in Augusta.
2
Steve Stricker
Steve Stricker
Didn’t play well on the weekend at Bay Hill and didn’t play in Houston, but his early consistency keeps him near the top of this list.
3
Charl Swartzel
Charl Schwartzel
This guy just doesn’t  go away. Played poorly at Bay Hill but rebounded in fine fashion with a T-3 in Houston on a final-round 67.

Anthony Kim

Win in Houston is not altogether surprising. AK has played well lately, including a second-place finish to Camilo Villegas at the Honda last month.
5
Paul Casey

Had to pull out of Houston because of an ailing shoulder but he says he’ll be ready to go this week at the Masters. Mr. Consistent needs to win one of these days.
6
Jim Furyk

Furyk may be peaking at the right time. He won Transitions, tied for 11th the next week at Bay Hill and took last week off to prepare for the Masters, where he’ll contend.
7
Retief Goosen

The Goose has been solid the past month with three top-5 finishes in his last four events. Could be another contender at Augusta National.
8
Camilo   Villegas Headshot
Camilo Villegas
Sliding down this list a bit since his victory at the Honda Classic. He tied for 16th at Doral, but then missed the cut at Bay Hill and didn’t play Houston.
9
Ian Poulter
Ian Poulter
Played progressively worse since his win at the Match Play and hasn’t played since the Transitions three weeks ago.
10
Lee Westwood

Began the year hot, cooled off a bit last month then rebounded nicely last week with an eighth-place tie in Houston.
