Breaking down Power Rankings

By Jessica Rangel, PGATOUR.COM

After examining Rob Bolton’s Power Rankings for the upcoming FedEx St. Jude Classic, we decided to dig a little deeper into the numbers.

Of the 15 ranked players in Power Rankings, we broke down the top 14 (Josh Teater withdrew) by four categories -- driving accuracy, greens in regulation, strokes gained-putting and scrambling. We then used their ranking for each category to create a combined ranking.

Brandt Snedeker totaled 54 (adding his ranking in each category, 10+11+18+15), which was by far the lowest ranking of the 15 players. Is this a sign of things to come this weekend at TPC Southwind? You never know.

Here’s a look at the breakdown. The number in parentheses after each players' name denotes his ranking in Power Rankings.
