2010 Power Rankings: Week 27

Justin Rose1(4)Justin RoseWe leave the question to the Englishman. Is he the hottest player on the planet? “I think it’s a fact,” he said following his AT&T victory. “Everybody goes through various forms of consistency, doing it week in, week out, year in, year out. That’s what we strive for.”
Phil Mickelson

It was a bye week for Lefty but his stock in the Power Ranking slips, the byproduct of Rose’s stellar play and Mickelson’s historically pedestrian efforts at the Open Championship. We’ll see how he fares at the Scottish Open.
Graeme McDowell

Graeme McDowell
Ladbrokes betting house says he’s 26-to-1 to win his second major in as many Grand Slam outings next week. A handsome bet if you consider he may be the only Tour regular who grew up playing a true links course (Royal Portrush).
Lee Westwood

Tie for 18th in France isn’t exactly what we’ve come to expect from the world beater, but the Englishman remains the most consistent player since January, even if he hasn’t been able to close the deal on the game’s biggest stages.
Jim Furyk

Jim Furyk
Philly-area native never got things going at AT&T National, but still, he’s among the game’s best ballstrikers who has rediscovered his silky putting touch. He’s still the best player to have won only one major. Needs another to secure a Hall of Fame resume.
Bo Van Pelt

The PGA Tour ATM got back on track at AT&T National with his tie for 11th place. In case you haven’t noticed, that’s his eighth top 15 finish of the season. Needs to find a victory somewhere along the line though to prove that he can hang.
Luke Donald

Four top-three finishes in his last seven events – one of them a victory – have Donald quietly up to seventh in the Official World Ranking. He also tied for 11th last week at the French Open and should play better at St. Andrews than he did in 2005 where he tied for 52nd place.
Ernie Els

The Big Easy took the week off and is not as hot as he was in the spring. But a third-place finish at Pebble Beach is impossible to ignore and he is a former Open Championship winner. Wouldn’t be surprising to see him contend at St. Andrews.
Dustin Johnson

The long-bombing DJ missed the cut in his first post-U.S. Open start at the AT&T National, but as Rose proved at Aronimink, a Sunday collapse can either be a curse or a catalyst. We’ll find out soon which it’ll be for DJ.
Rory McIlroy

Rory McIlroy
The young one has been all over the place the past couple months but his most recent accomplishment was a Sunday 66 at the French Open to finish a shot out of a three-way playoff. Graeme McDowell says McIlroy has the game to contend at St. Andrews.
