Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland - Even though he hasn't won since the Arnold Palmer Invitational past year, Rory is on a run of five straight finishes in the top six and just can't finish things off on Sunday right now.

Adam Scott at TPC Sawgrass in just his third PLAYERS start in 2004 and has three top 10s and three other four other top 20s since then.
Woods said such strains will be part of the bargain going forward while continuing his career after spinal fusion surgery in his lower back. The conservative approach that he adopted in Mexico could be a tactic he applies this week as he led SG: approach-the-green, demonstrating he has every chance of making history this week.

Course form and current form may not be any more irrelevant for any other event. Being ranked sixth in SG: putting so far this year suggests if he has a strong week tee-to-green, he could be adding a PGA Tour crown to his three European Tour titles.
