Top Notch Field

Those guys who get paid to keep the rest of us informed of the goings on in the golf world have to be drooling at the chance for storylines this week. The top seven golfers in the world are going to be there along with David Toms, Chris DiMarco, David Howell, and Davis Love III.

Will Phil Mickelson get a chance for a rematch against Tiger Woods? Will Vijay Singh find a new fault with Mickelson? How about a South African pairing on Sunday? Will Jim Furyk or Sergio Garcia play better? What will Love do after his performance last week? There's DiMarco who seems to be an easy media favorite or even Toms. Or what if Howell outplays them all so that the announcers and sports writers can stop telling us that we don't know who he is? (I, personally, could never forget David Howell once I learned he's been to a Scottish ceilidh.)

Golfer to watch this week: For the aforementioned reasons, David Howell.
