Golf Rankings for Hyundai Tournament of Champions
Ryan Moore [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #44
Moore got into the FedEx Cup and finished with a T10 in the first two events before scoring a T3 in the TOUR Championship. His lone appearance in the Fall Series got him to Hawaii, a victory in the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children.
Rickie Fowler [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #32
Fowler came alive during the spring with four straight top-10s, including a playoff win over Rory McIlroy at Quail Hollow and a runner-up performance the following week in THE PLAYERS Championship. Fowler managed just two top-25s in his final nine starts.
Scott Piercy [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #37
Piercy was erratic for much of 2012 until registering six finishes inside the top 20 during his final 10 starts, including a victory in the RBC Canadian Open.
Carl Pettersson [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #34
Pettersson was streaky player a year ago with five top-fives but also finished outside of the top 30 a total of 13 times in 26 starts. He finished T4 in this event back in 2011.
Bill Haas [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #29
The 2011 FedEx Cup Champion had a pretty lackluster season in last year but landed an early season victory to play the Tournament of Champions for the third straight time. He finished 20th in the event last year after an eighth-place performance in 2011.
John Huh [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #88
Huh was the 2012 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year thanks, in part, to a win in the Mayakoba Golf Classic. He was the only rookie to compete in all four FedEx Cup events.
Blixt experienced a solid rookie campaign which was highlighted by four straight finishes of 13th or better in the middle of the season. He punched his ticket to Hawaii by winning a Fall Series event where he also scored a solo third.
Ben Curtis [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #103
Curtis won early in 2012 with a victory at the Valero Texas Open. He ended the season by missing four cuts in his final five events until a mediocre run in Fall Series.
Stallings was missing cuts week in and week out until winning the True South Classic, an alternate event. In three starts during the Fall Series he missed yet another cut but finished T15 and T5 in his final two starts.
Gainey missed a bunch of cuts in the first half of the season but showed some slight improvements in late May with a solo third at Colonial. He scored a victory in the Fall Series but it was the only top-30 in his final nine starts.
Wagner opened 2012 with three straight top-10s, including a win in the Sony Open which came a week after finished T9 at Kapalua. The second half of the season was a struggle, however. In his last 13 starts Wagner missed seven cuts and finished no better than 36th.
Leishman won the Travelers Championship in late June but finished no better than 27th in his final eight starts.
