2011 Power Rankings: Week 16

RANKNAMECOMMENTS
Luke Donald1Luke Donald

Confidence is at an all-time high with his big win at the WGC-Match Play and three subsequent top-10s that followed, including T-4 at Augusta.

A somewhat slow start to his 2011 season, Furyk will hope the good vibes of being defending champion at Hilton Head we get him back on track.

Matt Kuchar

Six top-10s already in 2011- in just nine starts - Kuchar seems destine to at some point don the tartan jacket given to the winner at the Heritage.
Jason Day

 Jason Day
After a great showing at Augusta National (T-2), the Australian hopes to keep the momentum going in Hilton Head.
Aaron Baddeley
5
 Aaron Baddeley
Hard to ignore five straight top-25s in this event, including his win in 2006 and a runner-up finish in 2008. And already a winner on Tour this season.
Steve Marino

Steve Marino
Still looking for his first-ever PGA Tour victory, Marino had a solid showing in his only appearance in this event in '09 - T-13. Has two seconds and fourth this year on Tour.
Brandt Snedeker
7
 Brandt Snedeker
Feast or famine this year for Snedeker - four top-10s along with fours missed cuts in his 10 PGA Tour starts.o.
Rickie Fowler
8
 Rickie Fowler
Finished T-8 in the 2010 edition of the Heritage, but hasn't had much consistency thus far in '11. Currently 50th on the PGA Tour money list.
Bo Van Pelt

 Bo Van Pelt
Bo knows Hilton Head. Well, somewhat, coming on the heels of his T-3 last season. Solid showing at Augusta was followed up by a poor showing in Texas.
Ricky Barnes

 Ricky Barnes
Made some noise early at the Masters, before a third-round 75 derailed his attempts. Good vibes here in Hilton Head, however, with a T-5 last year.
