I very nearly awarded the last spot on this list to Patrick Reed, but Haas’ track record at the Memorial Tournament is too impressive to ignore. This spring hasn’t been the greatest stretch for him, but with the momentum he gained at Colonial, the Wake Forest product looks poised to post more low scores this week.

Haas entered the Dean & DeLuca Invitational on a skid of three consecutive missed cuts and promptly came out of nowhere to fire three rounds in the 60s, winding up in a tie for 12th. Along the way, he ranked eighth in the field in strokes gained: putting and tied for ninth in greens in regulation, skills that will surely come in handy this week. While he missed the cut at last year’s Memorial Tournament, Haas has survived to the weekend in most editions, notching back-to-back top 10s in 2013 and 2014. He’s nothing to write home about off the tee, but Reed is even worse in that category, tipping the scales in Haas’ direction.

Haas’ unexpected success at Fort Worth means that he belongs back on our radar screens, and with the U.S. Open right around the corner, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Look for him to keep his good play going this week.
