2013 PREVIEW: A nine-time winner around the world, Charlie Wi has five runner-up finishes in the last six seasons on the PGA TOUR. He'll need to improve his final-round scoring average -- Wi currently ranks 144th at 71.83, more than a stroke higher than his average before the cut -- to turn those seconds into wins.

2012 DEFINING MOMENT: Wi finished fifth or better four times in 2012 with the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am his best chance at that elusive breakthrough win. Aided by a opening 61 at Monterey Peninsula, Wi held at least a share of the lead in the first three rounds and was up by three as Sunday dawned. He tripled the first hole, though, and was overtaken by a hard-charging Phil Mickelson. – Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: He’s one of my favorite players on TOUR. Charlie is a journeyman who may not make the World Golf Hall Of Fame, but is part of a group of player who comprise the backbone of the PGA TOUR. Always a professional, he had a chance to win the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am but struggled in the final round. -- Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio

BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: ... In a word, commodity. In six seasons, he's banked $1.14-$1.85 million in each and posted a runner-up finish in all but one. All four of his top 10s in 2012 were top fives, and it was his age-40 season. His consistency limits him to the middle rounds of full-season formats, a value boosted by a full schedule. -- Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
