To be honest, after looking through this massive field, I was able to narrow my initial list down to about 35 golfers. So who are some of the names that were just barely left off this list?
Bubba Watson: While the win at the Torrey Pines was huge for Bubba, I don't think it carries over to this week. I see a top 25 for Bubba, but nothing to make him relevant on Sunday.
Charles Howell III: He made the list last week, but falls short this week. Howell played very well last year, but he needs to step up in order to be relevant.
Fred Couples: Everyone loves seeing Fred Couples golf. He's one of the most popular, easy going players on tour. Last year he took a T14, and this year I expect him to take a top 25.
Brandt Snedeker: Don't blink, or you will miss Snedeker's routine. He has one of the fastest routines on tour, and last year it caused him to shoot seven over par in the final round. All he needed to do was shoot three under for the win, but instead of looking to defend a title he looks to redeem himself.
Geoff Ogilvy: For his pedigree, he really should be on this list. However, with the exception of early success, Ogilvy was a bust last season. He needs to make an effort to be more consistent this year.
Now, for the main event, the 11 names to remember (Note: the dark horse is not a golfer guaranteed to make the leaderboard)
