According to the statistics, Graham DeLaet and Ryan Palmer are the favorites for the AT&T National tournament.

We examined Rob Bolton's Power Rankings, and broke down the 15 players' statistics from the 2013 season.

We gathered statistics from four major categories: driving distance, greens in regulation, proximity to the hole and strokes gained-putting. We then took our ranking and added them up from each area to form our own "Total Rank" category.

Based off of these findings, Graham DeLaet leads the group. His final ranking which added 9+1+11+90, totaled 111. Ryan Palmer came behind him with a score of 129,10+33+51+35.

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