Golf Rankings for Hyundai Tournament of Champions
Jonas Blixt [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #33
Jonas Blixt 40/1 Blixt finished T18 in his Kapalua debut last year. He would struggle mightily throughout the first several months of the season. Blixt made waves with a victory at The Greenbrier Classic and a solo fourth showing at the PGA Championship. However, Blixt has struggled to finish inside the top 50 in most other tournaments.
John Merrick [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #110
John Merrick 60/1 Merrick had a fairly forgettable 2013 but won the Northern Trust Open early in the season and earned his first trip to Kapalua. He made all three cuts in October but didn't place inside the top 50.
Ken Duke [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #132
Ken Duke 100/1 Duke came out of nowhere to win the Travelers Championship, the first Tour win for the 44-year-old veteran. His best result, by far, in the 11 starts since was a T15 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
Sang-Moon Bae 80/1 After winning the HP Byron Nelson Championship in May, Bae has missed seven cuts in 13 Tour starts.
Derek Ernst [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #170
Derek Ernst 150/1 Ernst, now 23 years old, was the surprise winner of the Wells Fargo Championship. He played 21 events last year and only made seven cuts.
Woody Austin 200/1 Austin will be playing Kapalua for the first time since 2008. He played a very limited Tour schedule last year but beat a limited field at the Sanderson Farms Championship, an alternate event to The Open Championship.
