He may not have collected enough points to eclipse Tiger Woods atop the World Golf Ranking, but another solid week at The Players solidifies his spot in these rankings.

Another pedestrian home game (T-47) but with the U.S. Open looming it’s impossible to ignore the game’s steadiest hand.

The near-misses continue but it’s impossible to ignore the Englishman’s consistency this year.  Even in defeat he is, as Gary Koch would say, better than most.

Tim Clark

Winless no more. The South African’s TPC turnaround elevates him to new status. Given the right conditions he can play with anyone in the world.
5
Rory McIlroy

Missed the cut at The Players – an inevitability, really, considering his Quail Hollow celebration spilled into his 21st birthday party on Tuesday.
6
Ernie Els

The Big Easy has gone flat since the Florida Swing and it may be time for a caddie change because Pebble Beach is just around the corner.
7
Robert Allenby

Unless he finds an answer for his putting woes he will struggle to close out tournaments. But the Power Rankings can appreciate stellar ballstriking.
8
Ryo Ishikawa

A “bye” week for the teen phenom and he deserved it after that closing 58 a week ago in Japan. Where does he go from here?

Anyone thinking that BVP’s performance at The Players was a flash in the pan hasn’t been paying attention. His T-4 at TPC was his third consecutive top-5 finish.

Hunter Mahan

The man who won in Phoenix earlier this year is still playing well. He has finished worse than 30th only once since that victory and has three consecutive top-20 finishes.
