PHIL’S only just getting warmed up, having played only six events this season after putting the clubs away until late January, but already he’s had as good a season as his entire 2015 campaign. Mickelson has already chalked up three top fives – the same number he recorded all last season – and is undoubtedly in better form than he was 12 months ago as he geared up for a runner-up Masters result. 6 PHIL MICKELSON Scoring Average (RANKED 1ST) KEY STAT 69.01 10 KAUFMAN had just four PGA Tour starts to his name when he lined up at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Four days later, after a ridiculous final-round 61, he was a first-time winner at just 24 years old. The American hasn’t quite set the world on fire since, with his best result a tie for 14th at the CareerBuilder Challenge, but we’ll afford him some wiggle room after that victory. 3 SMYLIE KAUFMAN Birdies per round (RANKED 13TH) KEY STAT 4.35 WILLETT’S PGA Tour stat line this year reads like this: two starts, two top threes. What’s more is that those two tournaments were WGC events – the HSBC Champions and Cadillac Championship – the latter where Willett looked every bit the winner before finding the drink late in his final round. While the Englishman only plays a handful of PGA Tour events outside of majors, he won the Dubai Desert Classic last month to go with two ties for fourth that kicked off his season. The man is red hot. 4 DANNY WILLETT Putts per green in regulation (EUROPEAN TOUR) KEY STAT 1.713 GRILLO has made only fleeting appearances on the PGA Tour over the past few years – usually centred around the Puerto Rico Open – and spends most of his time in Europe. But the 23-year-old Argentine got the jump on everybody at the season-opening Frys.com Open, riding a third-round 65 all the way to the winner’s cheque. He hasn’t done a whole lot since, but he’s not alone there. 5 EMILIANO GRILLO Grillo ranks 3rd on Tour for “Total Driving”, which combines distance (62nd) and accuracy (13th). KEY STAT 75
