Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy

Woods and McIlroy, who were paired together for the first two rounds, could battle for the No. 1 ranking all season long.

Walker: Who will be the No. 1 player in the world on Dec. 31, 2013, and why?

Lynch: Tiger McIlroy.

Morfit: Man, that's a good question. I'm going to say Rory will, just because he's got so much firepower. I think when he's on, like he showed Sunday, he's better than Tiger. But I'll be they're neck and neck.

Wei: Rory... because he's young and has so much talent.

Ritter: It's starting to feel like Tiger's in the midst of a five- or six-win season, isn't it? That would almost certainly take him to No. 1.

Van Sickle: I think Tiger may be No. 1 by the end of the year. He's already got two wins, he's got two more of his favorite courses coming up in Bay Hill and Muirfield Village. And there's always the Masters, AT&T, Firestone, Deutsche Bank. It's a transition year of life for Rory, who's already two wins behind Tiger's pace this year. Tiger is focused.

Godich: Tiger Woods. I see Rory's play continuing to be erratic. Tiger may very well win at Bay Hill, Muirfield Village and Firestone, and I'm beginning to believe he picks up major No. 15. If he doesn't, I don't see him catching Jack.

Reiterman: Tiger. If he keeps putting like this it won't even be close.

Gorant: Stacy Lewis. She's playing well in all facets.

Walker: Tiger gave a lot of credit for his improved putting this week to a tip from Steve Stricker. If you could get a lesson from any PGA Tour pro, whom would you choose and what would you work on?

Bamberger: Fuzzy. I once had breakfast with Fuzzy and it was great. A lesson would be a lesser event but also good. I would ask him about short putting. He drilled them so hard the ball practically popped out.

Morfit: I'd get a lesson from Jack Nicklaus, because I think he understands the swing and could probably explain it in a way that I would understand. I think he'd rise to the challenge of fixing my hook.

Lynch: Get me Gary Player in a bunker. Especially after my f*****g woes this weekend.

Reiterman: Matt Kuchar. I have a very flat swing like Kuchar. However, he seems to be having a lot more success with it.

Godich: Bubba Watson. I want to hit it 330, and I want to be able to curve shots 40 yards in either direction.

Wei: I wouldn't mind a wedge/putting lesson from Stricker. It appears to have done Tiger pretty well this week!

Ritter: I'll take a short-game lesson from Phil. He'd make it fun, and if he shared some of that trademark creativity, I'd probably never look at routine chips and pitch shots the same.

Van Sickle: I don't think any of those tour pros can write a decent lead or conjugate verbs so I'll take a pass. Or did you mean golf lesson?
