25. Charles Howell III [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #56

After finishing with a share of second at the Sony Open, Howell finished outside of the top 30 in four straight events until recording a T16 last week at Mayakoba. While the competition this week is a big step up, Howell finished a career-best T10 in the Honda last year.

26. Ryan Moore [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #33

After missing the cut at the Honda in 2007 and 2009, Moore skipped the event the last two years. He’s coming off two consecutive top-20 finishes and ranks fourth in birdie average.

27. Jim Furyk [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #6

From 2000-05 prior to the change in venue, Furyk competed in the Honda on four occasions with two top-five finishes and finished no worse than ninth. Since then he’s only played at the Champion Course once, a T31 in 2007. After an uneven performance at Pebble, Furyk recorded a T11 the following week at the Northern Trust Open.

28. Rickie Fowler [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #12

Even though Fowler missed the cut in his first two starts at the Honda, he should not be dismissed completely. He opened the year with a T13 and T26 until struggling in his last two stroke play events. Fowler is 10th in total driving and is among the best young players on Tour.

29. Thomas Bjorn [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #38

In his four stroke play events this season, all on the European Tour, Bjorn has collected one top-five, two top-10s and has not finished outside of top-25. Last year Bjorn made just four stroke play Tour starts, highlighted by a solo fourth in The Open Championship.

30. Jerry Kelly [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #115

Kelly would be a solid pick among lower-tier drivers if not for a poor start to 2012. He’s scored three top-20s in his last four Honda events, including a career-best solo third last year. However, Kelly has missed two cuts this season with only one top-30 in four starts.
