Hyundai TOC Commentary

Last year, the Hyundai Tournament of Champions was delayed due to heavy winds. Players could not get their golf balls to stop oscillating when placed on the green, and several had their balls blown clear off the green. The 2013 golf season seemed like it would never get underway, but finally the field played a shortened, 54 hole event with Dustin Johnson emerging as the winner. Let’s hope this season’s tournament gets started without the pauses, delays, or strange events.

(A) Matt Kuchar (1) Franklin Templeton
(3) NW Mutual
(4) World Cup of Golf
(7) McGladrey
(9) 2013
(6) 2011
(3) 2010
Kuchar had a great 2013 and continues to be hot heading into 2014. His track record includes 3 top-10 finishes at the TOC.
(A) Adam Scott (3) World Cup of Golf
(14) Tour Championship
(28) BMW
(53) Deutsche Bank
(1) Barclays
(21) 2011
(18) 2009
(2) 2007
Scott had a breakthrough 2013 and finished strong at the World Cup of Golf. His game fits the par 73 Kapalua Plantation course well with his extra length. Expectations are high for 2014.
(B) Dustin Johnson (11) Franklin Templeton
(18) NW Mutual
(1) HSBC
(5) Tour Championship
(1) 2013
(9) 2011

(11) 2009
D. Johnson won the TOC last season in a wind-shortened event and has the aggressive and long game to take advantage of the par 5s at the Plantation course. He also plays well in windy conditions, so Hawaii fits his game well.
(B) Zach Johnson (1) NW Mutual
(16) McGladrey
(40) Shriners
(7) Tour Championship
(1) BMW
(18) 2013
(23) 2011
(18) 2010
(6) 2009
Zach played beyond any of our expectations in 2013, except for his own, and his hot play continues today. He beat Tiger in a playoff at the Northwestern Mutual which should provide lots of confidence for 2014.
(B) Webb Simpson (5) NW Mutual
(7) McGladrey
(1) Shriners
(4) Tour Championship
(18) 2013 Webb has played exemplary over his last four tournaments and all he needs now is to play better in Kapalua!
(B) Jordan Spieth (16) NW Mutual
(17) HSBC
(2) Tour Championship
(16) BMW
(4) Deutsche Bank
Never played Spieth started his career off with style last year and there are no indications he will slow down any time soon. The question is how will he handle the spotlight? We’re inclined to have him in our roster this week on the chance he puts himself in position to finish top 3. However, we would like to reserve our 10 starts for later in the season. If he’s in contention, you will probably see him in our lineup on Sat and/or Sun.
(C) Harris English (1) Franklin Templeton
(1) OHL Mayakoba
(27) McGladrey
(7) CIMB
(40) Shriners
Never played English finished his 2013 calendar year schedule off with a bang – winning the OHL Mayakoba Classic and the Franklin Templeton Shootout alongside Matt Kuchar. Given a weaker Group C, play the hot hand.
(C) Jimmy Walker (46) HSBC
(6) CIMB
(12) Shriners
(1) Frys.com
Never played Walker should feel comfortable in the Hawaiian winds given his Texas background. Group C is fairly weak, so now that McDowell is out, we like Walker to step up and play well at Kapalua.
