Anthony Kim

Tiger Woods, as usual. He didn't win the Masters, but he piled up three W's against top-heavy fields at Torrey Pines and Doral, and in the Wachovia.

Anthony Kim (left) turned pro after three years at Oklahoma, which looks like a good decision. He's had three top five finishes.

Boo Weekley stubbed a chip on the 71st hole at the Verizon Heritage, then chipped in to save par and chipped in again for par and the win at the 72nd.

The only thing that could top Phil Mickelson's Butch Harmonâ€"forâ€"Rick Smith coaching change would be a Mickelson win over Woods in the U.S. Open.

Match the person with the quote

A. Billy Andrade
B. Zach Johnson
C. Paul Goydos
D. Tim Finchem

1. "Thanks to global warming, next year I'm playing without pants."
2. "I had my best year ever today."
3. "The way we look at it, Tiger gets to host one tournament for every 50 wins."
4. "The new clubhouse [at Sawgrass] reminds me a lot of the reform school I went to when I was a kid."

One hundred and forty-four pros will qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs, but according to the Tour's computer models, any pro outside the top 15 after the points are reset to start the four-tournament playoff has only two chances — slim and none — to win the $10 million first prize.

Player Rank Up/Down Skinny
Boo Weekley 13th Down Tee to green, he has serious game. If he could do anything with the putter, he'd be dangerous
Sergio Garcia 14th Down His ball striking still rocks, but he admits to fighting his putter "like a coward." Not a good sign
Jim Furyk 15th Up Furyk's second at Colonial indicates that he's heating up just in time for a summer run
Geoff Ogilvy 16th Up Defending champ has been largely quiet, but his top 10 at Memorial shows he's peaking for his defense

Answers: 1-B; 2-C; 3-D; 4-A
