These two guys need to kick start their 2013s soon.
The two biggest names in the field, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson, are also the two biggest mysteries.
Much has been expected of McIlroy, the 23-year-old from Northern Ireland, who entered 2013 as the top-ranked player in the world, but his season thus far has been nothing short of a train wreck.
New equipment, high expectations and a lack of maturity have all contributed.
There have been flashes of the “old” McIlroy but not nearly enough to prove he’s anywhere close his No. 2 world ranking.
Mickelson, too, has had a disappointing season. He won going away at Phoenix but has been mediocre, at best, since.
Mickelson had his worst Masters in a long time.
He does have a good record in this event, finishing in the top two six times.
Suffice it to say that nothing either of these two do this week will come as a surprise.
