2011 Power Rankings: Week 17

RANKNAMECOMMENTS
Luke Donald1Luke Donald

Had a chance to reach world No. 1 at Hilton Head and showed guts coming down the stretch, but struggled during the playoff. Is this the week he becomes the world's top-ranked player?

Nick Watney

Nick  Watney

After a disappointing Masters, Watney's bound to get back into the spotlight. His T-46 at Augusta is his only finish outside the top-13 in seven starts this year.

Brandt Snedeker

Brandt Snedeker
Sneds finally got the job done for a second time on Tour last week and there's no doubt the guy's got the talent to rack up a bunch more. He's a streaky player and he's riding a good one right now.
Justin Rose

Justin Rose
Technically about as good as it gets, Rose has the tools to win anywhere, anytime. He's finished T-5, T-3 and T-11 in his last three events.
Bubba Watson

 Bubba Watson
After his win in San Diego in January and fourth place finish at the Match Play in February, Watson's cooled off a bit. But don't ever count Bubba out. Bubba doesn't.
Tommy Gainey

'Two Gloves' made a final-round run at Hilton Head and had a putt on the 18th to tie in front of his home state crowd. The putt missed, but Gloves has already made it in the minds of many.
Spencer Levin

Levin took one hard on the chin after a rough final round at Bay Hill with a chance to win. He followed with two missed cuts, but rebounded last week with a T-14 at Harbour Town..
Steve Stricker

 Steve Stricker

The Wisconsite's been consistent this year with three top-10s and no missed cuts. He looks primed to win somewhere, and somewhere soon. 

Boo Weekley

 Boo Weekley
Boo secured a top-10 at Zurich last year and although he hasn't had a great season thus far, he's a southern boy on a southern course. Could be just the remedy.
David Toms

David Toms
It's a home game for Toms and his game has been trending upward, with two top-10s in his last four starts.
