Mark Wilson, Jonathan Byrd, Jim Furyk – Mark Wilson has two victories in 2011. Byrd has one. But Furyk, the reigning FedExCup champion, is the one holding the TOUR's ultimate prize.
Bill Haas, Rory McIlroy, Gary Woodland – McIlroy missed the cut in his only post-Masters TOUR start, but returns to a place he finished inside the top 10 last year.
