10 ALMOST everyone loves Graeme McDowell. But his clubs’ feelings towards him definitely waned last year as he spent the back half of the season struggling to make cuts. But having being unseen on the PGA Tour since August, the Northern Irishman returned in the most emphatic style, winning his first event of the season at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and racking up three more top 10 finishes from his six PGA Tour tournaments since. G -Mac is back. 10 GRAEME MCDOWELL Driving Accuracy (RANKED 4TH) KEY STAT 72.12% WE DON’T see much of Marcus Fraser on the PGA Tour, but the Aussie is grabbing attention wherever he plays this year. Having captured his first European Tour title in six years at the Maybank Championship Malaysia in February, he fronted up to the WGC-Cadillac Championship and posted the best score in the opening round. While it didn’t last – a second-round 77, an 80 on a Saturday and a final- round 79 ruined what could have been a great story – the 37-year-old Melburnian continues to surprise. 7 MARCUS FRASER Number of birdies carded on the opening day at Doral KEY STAT 7 HAVING barely been a factor at a PGA Tour event since 2008, despite making 15 of 19 cuts last year, it was easy (and probably wise) to write the South Korean off heading into this season. Instead he’s turned in two top five results, including a runner-up finish at the Farmers Insurance Open where he began the final day in front but blew it with a 76, allowing Brandt Snedeker to scrape past him. 8 K.J. CHOI Sand Save percentage (RANKED 5TH) KEY STAT 67.08% ALREADY staking his claim for the “best player not to win one in 2016” award is Na, who’s done everything but take home some silverware after a fairly indifferent 2015. He was runner-up twice in the first two events of the season, then tied for third a week later at the CIMB Classic before tying for third again at the CareerBuilder Challenge. He now sits sixth in the FedEx Cup race and is well and truly in line for his best and most lucrative year yet. 9 KEVIN NA Average Birdies per round (RANKED 9TH) KEY STAT 4.48
