2 years agoHideki Matsuyama's (hand) swing rises in the East, but did not set in the West at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The two-time champion of this event had to withdraw from the championship in the second round, citing a hand injury. He then flew back to Japan and had an MRI done, fortunately revealing no structural damage. His possible timetable to return is at the WGC-Mexico Championship. Leading up to the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Matsuyama had three top-five finishes, a top-25 finish and also tied a T50. Do not let that T50 frighten you, because Matsuyama can get it done.--Todd Dorsa - RotoBallerSource: Golf Digest

2 years agoJordan Speith is a three-time major champion who wedged his way into 2018 with a new position as the PAC chairman of the PGA tour. During the 2018 calendar PGA tour season, Spieth has finished with two top-10 finishes, two top-25 finishes and a missed cut. As the season rolls on, his new putting technique will be put to the test. After struggling with missing the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Spieth and his team went back to the drawing board and worked out some kinks and came out with a strong top-10 finish at the Genesis Open. It is unclear now if Spieth will be starting at the WGC-Mexico Championship.--Todd Dorsa - RotoBallerSource: Golfworld

2 years agoPhil Mickelson, currently ranked 32nd in the World Golf Rankings, has moved up nine spots after his T6 showing at the Genesis Open. He has played excellent golf as of late, including a tie for second at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and a tie for fifth at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. For his final two rounds during the Genesis Open, he hit great shots all weekend long to shoot rounds of 67 and 68 after failing to break 70 his first two rounds. He has a couple of weeks off before his next event, the WGC-Mexico Championship, as he prepares for the Masters in April.--Drake PeaughSource: Fox Sports

2 years agoGary Woodland, currently ranked 26th in the World Golf Rankings, looks to get back to his winning ways following his missed third-round cut at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Prior to that week, he played very well in Phoenix, Arizona, winning the Waste Management Phoenix Open. For the Honda Classic, look for his driving distance to put him in early consideration for the Honda Classic title. He will be playing alongside Alex Noren and Tommy Fleetwood, both of whom are playing extremely well this year, thus making this grouping a must-watch during the first two days.--Drake PeaughSource: FOX Sports

2 years agoCharley Hoffman, currently ranked 23rd in the World Golf Rankings, struggled during the first round of the Genesis Open, posting a 75. A few shots off the cut line, he finished Round 2 with a 69 and duplicated that round in Round 3. To finish the tournament, he shot an even-par 71, leaving him just as he started. He finished the tournament tied for 41st place. Look for him to try and get some low rounds under his belt at his next event, the WGC-Mexico Championship in two weeks, followed by the Masters in April.--Drake PeaughSource: Fox Sports

2 years agoBrian Harman, currently ranked 21st in the World Golf Rankings, looks to add to his five top-10 finishes to start the season. After missing the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open, his first of the season, he had a month off on his schedule. This time has allowed him to prepare for many tournaments coming up, including the Honda Classic, the WGC-Mexico Championship and the Masters. During his first two rounds of the Honda Classic, he will be a part of an all Georgia-born grouping, playing alongside Wesley Bryan and Chris Kirk.--Drake PeaughSource: Fox Sports

2 years agoPaul Casey, currently the 19th ranked player in the world, made the weekend rounds at the Genesis Open, but failed to do anything with the opportunity. He finished the tournament tied for 49th place after a final-round 70. His final round, much like his whole tournament, was very much an up-and-down affair. He posted rounds of 73, 71, 71 and 70, consecutively. While he failed to get anything going this past week, he will next be seen at the WGC-Mexico Championship, where he looks to sharpen his game in preparation for the Masters at Augusta National.--Drake PeaughSource: Fox Sports

2 years agoMarc Leishman, currently ranked 14th in the World Golf Rankings, struggled by missing the cut during the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club. He finished his two rounds with a plus-5, including a five-hole stretch in the second round where he recorded four bogeys, thus ending any likelihood of playing into the weekend. Look for him in a couple of weeks at the WGC-Mexico Championship and to follow that up at Augusta National to play in the Masters.--Drake PeaughSource: Fox Sports

2 years agoSergio Garcia, currently ranked No. 11 in the world, is looking to start the new year off with a big victory on the PGA Tour. After a successful year in winning his first major at The Masters, he has yet to play much golf in 2018. His only competitive golf played at the Dubai Desert Classic had him finishing tied for 32nd place. Even so, look to have him as a formidable play in a competitive field at the Honda Classic. He will be paired alongside two excellent golfers in Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger in what should be a very entertaining first two rounds to watch.--Drake PeaughSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoRory McIllroy has played great golf to start 2018. Aside from his struggles at Pebble Beach, where he missed the cut for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, he has placed well this year in European Tour events. He finished third at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, then finished second at the Dubai Desert Classic, and 20th at the Genesis Open, his first PGA Tour event this year. For his upcoming tournament, you will see him playing in the Honda Classic at the PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens. He will be paired with Padraig Harrington and Adam Scott during his first two rounds. Look for him to be in contention in hopes of grabbing his first victory of the 2018 season.--Drake PeaughSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoJon Rahm, currently the second-ranked player in the world and third in the FedEx Cup Standings, is enjoying some time off after his T26 showing at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He dropped a handful of shots by shooting a dreadful 42 on the back nine, leading to a round-four 76 and a seven-under score to finish his tournament. Look for him to play his next rounds of competitive golf in two weeks at the WGC-Mexico Championship.--Drake PeaughSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoTiger Woods returned after a two-week layoff and struggled, especially with his driver and iron game. After opening with a one-over 72 on Thursday, he could only muster a five-over 76 that put him well outside the cut line Friday. He'll get a chance to rebound as he makes his first start at the Honda Classic since 2014 when he had to withdraw after 13 holes with back spasms. A month later he would have back surgery. Now seemingly fully healthy, Woods understands the importance of playing. “I need to get some tournament rounds in and next week is a home match,” Woods said. “And I’m able to get some more work done this weekend.” While he isn't a favorite to win, all eyes will be watching to see if his game is starting to come together.--Chris Mangano - RotoBallerSource: Golf Digest

2 years agoAfter sitting out the Genesis Open, Kevin Kisner is set to return at this week's Honda Classic at PGA National in Florida. Kisner skipped Riviera after missing the cut at Pebble Beach. In 2017, Kisner finished tied for 48th at the Honda Classic after a final-round 77 dropped him out of contention. Still, he put together a solid first three days and should improve on that finish this year.--Chris Mangano - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoBranden Grace finished tied for 37th at the Genesis Open at Riviera with a score of one-under. Grace, a short but accurate driver, struggled most of the week to find the fairway, hitting just 23 fairways. His percentage of 41.07 was well below his season average of 69.18, which made scoring tough for Grace. He'll need to drive it better at the World Golf Championships in Mexico in two weeks if he wants to contend.--Chris Mangano - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoAfter opening with rounds of 71 and 70 at the Genesis Open at Riviera, Xander Schauffele carded back-to-back 68s on the weekend to finish in a tie for ninth. It was his second top 10 of the season but first since October. Schauffele will not play at this week's Honda Classic but is slated to play the World Golf Championship in Mexico in March. It will be his first start at the event.--Chris Mangano - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
