On to Vegas

Seven Top Tier members are entered in the Michelin Championship at Las Vegas. A good week for Phil Mickelson won't affect his tier rank, but it would be his best finish this fall. I don't believe good or bad play will affect whether Jim Furyk, Padraig Harrington, Davis Love III, Fred Couples, and John Daly stay in Tier III. Justin Leonard may need to have a good week to stay in that tier. If Scott Verplank performs well this week, there is a chance that he could move into Tier III. That gives McGinley and Jimenez the chance to move to Tier IV without playing and subsequently opens the door to the likes of Henrik Stenson, Mark Hensby, and Stuart Appleby as potential Tier V members. Hensby and Appleby have the chance to play into the top tiers this week as well.

Golfer to watch this week: Scott Verplank
