25. Retief Goosen [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #122

Goosen has never enjoyed a beneficial finish at the CA Championship but he clearly deserves rank among those who could surprise. He ranks among the elite for a reason, though we warn he fails to present value this week.

26. Rickie Fowler [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #9

Power and finesse are the demands at the TPC Blue Mountain, and we know Fowler has both. He has never filed a start at this event and thus he fails to garner rank worthy of his talents. It wouldn't be a first if he emerges from the shadows.

27. Edoardo Molinari [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #159

We were much higher on Edoardo before recent weeks of struggle on the Tour, and with a horrific experience on the TPC Blue Mountain last season, we aren't ready to reach his way this season. For a list of 30, talent alone gets him in the picture.

28. Jeff Overton [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #190

We were planning to leave Overton off the list for the week but his close at the Honda Classic forced our hand. He showed signs of dramatic improvement and his work at the TPC Blue Mountain last season suggests he could continue that momentum this week.

29. Dustin Johnson [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #10

We couldn't be more down on DJ at this point. He has showcased the perfect game for this TPC Blue Mountain course in the past but he has no semblance of momentum as of today. Still, when it comes to talent, DJ makes any top 30 you might compile.

30. Ryan Palmer [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #28

We've reserved the final spot for one particular golfer you might define as a "sleeper". He wasn't particularly potent at the TPC Blue Mountain last season but a second invite shows just how consistent and successful he's been over the past two years.
