Rank Winner Wild Card Last Week
Babineau Brian Gay

He’s comfortable with the golf course, has won here before and has been performing pretty consistently out of the gates this season.

Aaron Baddeley

Hard to pick a guy coming off victory at Riviera as a sleeper, but he qualifies being outside the top 50. He’s obviously in for a bit of a letdown playing the week after winning, but let’s see how far he can ride a hot hand.

Winner: Phil Mickelson (T-35); wild card: Tom Gillis (MC)

Rude Carl Pettersson

Call it a hunch. He has cooled off after a T-4 in the season-opening Tournament of Champions, but he knows how to close.

Aaron Baddeley

The scientific term for this is “riding a hot horse.”

Winner: Phil Mickelson (T-35); wild card: Steve Marino (MC).

Martin Jhonattan Vegas

Nice to see the big Venezuelan playing Mayakoba even after his Bob Hope win. Seeing a successful Latin American player will be a great inspiration to Mexico’s youth. Based on his recent form, Vegas should give the fans plenty to cheer about. In addition to his Hope win, he finished third at Torrey Pines and 12th last week at Riviera.

Spencer Levin

It looks like the talented Calfiornian is getting comfortable on Tour. He closed 2010 with consecutive top 5s, and has made five of six cuts this year. He finished fourth at Pebble Beach and 12th at Riviera.

Winner: Dustin Johnson (MC); wild card: Alex Prugh (MC).

McCabe Chad Campbell

Though it’s a tournament where the youngsters have gotten a chance to play, each of the four editions of this event have produced a veteran as champion. Look for that tradition to continue with one of the tour’s best ballstrikers.

David Toms

Why? See above explanation.

Winner: Robert Karlsson (T-62); wild card: Rory Sabbatini (MC).

Miceli Brian Gay

Straight-hitter and good with the flatstick are both important characteristics of playing at Mayakoba.

Jhonattan Vegas

Can anything stop Johnny Vegas? Doubtful. Probably the hottest player in the field, and easily could walk away with his second victory in 2011.

Winner: Anthony Kim (WD); wild card: Fred Couples (T-7).

Ringler Fredrik Jacobson

Jacobson is the third-best player in the field, according to Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index, and has played well this year in making three of four cuts. Seven of his 15 rounds this year have been in the 60s.

Fabian Gomez

This is a similar field for Gomez, who in 2010 played on Nationwide Tour and Tour de Las Americas, where he had much success.

Winner: J.B. Holmes (T-12); wild card: Tom Gillis (MC).
