No. 4 – Phil Mickelson

Official World Ranking – 20; FedEx Cup – 40

When it comes to Mickelson, you don’t necessarily even need a number to point to, you just go with your gut. Really, it’s how Lefty does things, too. He paired a couple of top-ten finishes at WGC events (seventh in Mexico, round of 8 at Match Play), before dropping to T55 in Houston and a middling T-22 at the Masters. He’s consistently played well at the Wells Fargo Championship, finishing in the top 12 a stunning 11 times in his last 13 trips.

Mickelson’s short game is still arguably the best in the business, even at age 46, as he ranks second on Tour in strokes gained around the green, and 17th in strokes gained putting.
