Two wins and four top 10s through New Orleans. Most active elite player since the Masters. In 2015 MC in both The Players and Memorial.
Did 12th at Augusta scar him? The other 71 holes he was the best player in the field. Feast or famine in two Players starts – T4 and MC.
May has been Fowler’s best career month – two of his three wins. Last year’s Players finish likely will define his career.
Wells Fargo has been Rory’s ATM. Two wins and two top 10s. Three straight top 10s at The Players.
Despite two wins and one second in 2016, one stat spells trouble. Top 10 in distance and GIR but has dropped 118 spots in putting – 177.
Needs a “W.” Last U.S. win was Deutsche Bank in 2013. Numbers don’t lie. Stenson has a horrible record on Saturdays.
Putter is always the barometer for his chances to win. Has more missed cuts than top 10s at the Players.
It’s been a dozen years since he won on Sawgrass. Scott’s putter gets all the conversation, but he is missing nearly half the fairways in 2016.
Has at least one win in the last eight years, but empty in 2016. So far in ’16 Johnson is missing fairways and greens at an alarming rate.
Heritage win can be a launching point in the U.S. Has good resume overseas. Has no record of success in his few appearances at The Players and Memorial.
Has 13 top 10s and four seconds since last year’s FedEx series, but no wins. Shares Stenson’s knack of backing up during third rounds.
Coming up on the second anniversary of his win at Memorial in 2014. Leads the Tour in birdies.
Not long, not straight. But when his short game is on, he can win. Every time he looks to be taking it to the next level injury happens.
Won a dramatic Open playoff in 2015. Now has MC in the next two majors. At 282 yards off the tee, he needs the right course and conditions to win instead of contend.
Last win was 2009 but has climbed 68 spots in world rankings in the last two years. Ranked #3 in the world at one time.
Back on Tour after six-month recuperation from wrist surgery. Clock is ticking as he turns 46 in May.
First Englishman to win at Augusta since Faldo. Is he Sir Nick or Trevor Immelman?
Always considered one of the 20 best players in the world. Has never won on US soil. Continues to experiment on the greens.
Finally found a way to close at Valero. Has plenty of game but still wobbles on the greens.
Entire career is capsulized in his Players’ history. Victor and victim on the same turf over a number of years. Gracious in defeat, but well practiced.
Only once out of the top 30 since last summer, including six top 10s. All that is missing is a win.
Already adopted by Spieth and Fowler in the young guns generation. One Tour win and three Masters rounds are his primary credentials.
When your only tournament win begins with “Justin Timberlake,” you need a second victory. But 53 career top 10s means he frequently gets a look at the top.
After good showings early in 2016, missed back-to-back cuts, including The Masters. Too young to be done. Old enough to raise the question.
Expected to resurface at Muirfield where five career wins makes it feel like home. Needs to check three boxes – healthy body, healthy golf mind and commitment of his 30s.
