2011 Power Rankings: Week 12

RANKNAMECOMMENTS
Graeme McDowell1Graeme McDowell

Was devoured by the Blue Monster, but after a week off he should be well rested and plenty inspired.

Justin Rose

 Justin Rose

Folded Sunday in Tampa, but did the same thing last year at the Travelers Championship before winning the AT&T National.

Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson
It's beneficial to be a big hitter at Bay Hill. Johnson was second at the WGC-Cadillac and had only four bogeys that week.
Ernie Els

 Ernie Els
The defending Bay Hill champion needs to get some momentum before heading to Augusta.
Tiger Woods
5
 Tiger Woods
His results show that he is improving with each start and he's a six-time champion at this event.
Bubba Watson
6
 Bubba Watson
Another big bomber, Watson won at Torrey Pines and is looking to take the reigns as the top player in the U.S. 
Edoardo Molinari
7
 Edoardo Molinari
Still searching for his first sub-70 round on the PGA Tour this season (in two previous stroke-play events), but he tied for second at Bay Hill last year.o.
Kevin Na
8
 Kevin Na
Would love to become the next first-time winner on Tour. He has finished T-2, T-11 in his last two starts, respectively, in this event.
Phil Mickelson
9
 Phil Mickelson
Started the year with a runner-up showing at Torrey Pines, but has since been pedestrian. Like Els, Mickelson could use a pick-me-up before the Masters.
Vijay Singh
10
 Vijay Singh
Has slowed down a bit since a couple of top-3 finishes earlier in the year; however, Singh has a win and five other top-5 finishes at Bay Hill.
