This even goes back to the 90’s, where Pavin repeated, Couples won then finished 2nd the next year, Stadler won and finished 2nd the next yaer..Davis Love has a bunch of T2’s, same with Couples. Wild.
They are who we thought they were.

PC has a win already on the European Tour and through the 3 events he’s played in, is sitting in 5th in the Race to Dubai. Paul is also 6th in the official world golf rankings. However, Paul hasn’t played this event since 2008, where he finished T22. No biggie, he should be a favourite this week.
The kid is coming off of his first missed cut of the season in Phoenix, but he still shot 72-69. He still finished T19, T13 and T6 in his first three events. T52 here last year, CUT in 08, T9 in ‘07.
Cink makes his third start of the season coming off of a T51 at Farmers. Cink had a T32 here last year, T33 in ‘07
G’Lover has started this season in style with a T51 at Farmers and a T29 in Phoenix. CUT here in ‘09, T22 in ‘08, T33 in ‘07, T30 in ‘06. G’Lover is consistent here and may be a good look…..but just look at this beard.
