Preview and Prediction for PGA Tour's 2014 Florida Swing

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson use the Florida Swing to prepare for the Masters.

Now that the new wraparound schedule and west coast swing have concluded, the PGA Tour moves to Florida.

Professional golfers profess that early season tournaments are used to work out the kinks and get back into tournament mode after their winter layoff.

A renewed sense of urgency seems to hit the golf circuit, however, as the tour moves into the "Florida Swing."

Fourteen tournaments are complete in the 2013-14 season, but the top names have only played in handful of events thus far.

The four tournaments in Florida, the Honda Classic, the WGC-Cadillac, the Valspar Championship and the Arnold Palmer Invitational are a preview and a warm-up for the Masters each year. 

Tiger Woods has only played once thus far in the U.S. which resulted in a rather untidy T-80 at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.

No. 2 in the world and Masters champion Adam Scott has played just two events in Hawaii before taking his winter vacation.

Phil Mickelson has played in five events this year, but he skipped Riviera and the match play.

All the big names will be in attendance in Florida as the Masters looms the second week in April.
