Golf Rankings for Hyundai Tournament of Champions
Bill Haas [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #41
Bill Haas 20/1 Haas is playing Kapalua for the fourth straight year and looking to reverse his sliding performance. After debuting with a solo eighth in 2011 he dropped to solo 20th the following year and T23 in 2013. Haas was mediocre in two October starts and finished no better than 20th in his final six starts last season.
Gary Woodland [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #42
Gary Woodland 25/1 Woodland is coming off a playoff defeat at the CIMB Classic and a missed cut in his first October start prior to that. He caught fire for a bit last August by winning the Reno-Tahoe Open and earning a share of second in The Barclays. Woodland is looking to atone for his forgettable solo 24th Kapalua debut from 2012.
Jimmy Walker [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #24
Jimmy Walker 30/1 Walker began October by winning the Frys.com Open then placed T12 and solo sixth before a T46 in the WGC-HSBC Champions. After making 24 consecutive cuts, Walker came apart in June by missing six cuts in eight starts. He's clearly looking better now and is a fair option for a first timer at Kapalua.
Boo Weekley [Yahoo Class B]
Boo Weekley 50/1 Weekley gets to play Kapalua for the first time since a T15 back in 2009. Even though he missed three midseason cuts Weekley recorded a victory at Colonial and went on to a respectable T12 at the PGA Championship. Despite those efforts Weekley was, for the most part, still off the radar until a T11 at the WGC-HSBC Champions.
Billy Horschel [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #76
Billy Horschel 30/1 Horschel certainly had some moments in 2013. In a span of eight starts from late March through mid-June he recorded four top-fives and six top-10s, highlighted by winning the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. However, Horschel cooled off considerably after that run, adding just one top-10 in his final 12 starts while missing four cuts.
Kevin Streelman [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #140
Kevin Streelman 40/1 Streelman had a stretch of six starts from mid-March to mid-May where he won the Tampa Bay Championship and earned a share of second in THE PLAYERS to go along with two more finishes of sixth or better. He would miss four cuts from there and owns just one top-15 in the 10 starts since.
Russell Henley [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #52
Russell Henley 50/1 Henley won last year's Sony Open and thus gets to play the other Hawaii-hosted event for the first time. However, since that victory Henley has only managed a pair of top-10s while missing seven cuts.
D.A. Points [Yahoo Class C]
DA Points 60/1 Points owns a T12 in his lone Kapalua appearance from 2012. He struggled in his two October events and was a wreck for much of 2013. However, things came together for him during his victory at the Shell Houston Open in late Match and again a month later at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans where Points was the runner-up.
Scott Brown [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #123
Scott Brown 50/1 Brown played five wrap around events, scoring a pair of top-fives. His victory from 2013 came at the Puerto Rico Open, an alternate event to the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Limited fields seem to be Brown's specialty because he repeatedly missed cuts against stiffer competition last year.
Michael Thompson [Yahoo Class C]
Michael Thompson 60/1 Thompson missed numerous cuts throughout the 2013 season but won The Honda Classic in February before adding a T8 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. He also matched a Sunday-best round of 67 at the Masters to place T25. However, In the 15 starts since he's only managed one top-20.
Brian Gay [Yahoo Class C]
Brian Gay 80/1 Gay will be playing Kapalua for the first time since lackluster showings in 2009 and 2010. He finished outside of the top 40 and missed a cut in four of his five wrap around events but finished T4 in The McGladrey Classic. Gay won the Humana Challenge, the first tournament on the mainland, but missed numerous midseason cuts before settling into some mediocre finishes down the stretch.
Patrick Reed [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #15
Patrick Reed 80/1 Reed missed the cut in two of his three October starts and really struggled at the start of 2013. He got things in order for a solo fifth showing at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in June prior to putting together three consecutive top-10s, capped off by winning the Wyndham Championship in August.
