Justin Rose — 10th

Rose enters this week on a wave of three consecutive top 15s, including that Masters runner-up and a solid tie for 13th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Those finishes have been the result of the Englishman’s strong total game — at seventh on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: off-the-green and 18th in strokes gained: around-the-green, he gives himself plenty of opportunities to score. In terms of course history, Rose has picked up a number of solid finishes at TPC Sawgrass over the years, peaking with a tie for fourth in 2014. Well-rested after his near miss at Augusta, he should be ready to tackle the track’s latest modifications.

While it’s been more than two years since Rose won his last PGA Tour event, the 36-year-old has certainly been playing well enough to hoist another trophy. Be sure to keep an eye on him this week.
