2013 PREVIEW: George McNeill won for the second time and snapped a five-year victory drought at the Puerto Rico Open presented by seepuertorico.com. But it was his only top-10 of the season after a career-high four in 2011, so the Florida State product will be looking to put himself in the hunt more often this year.
2012 DEFINING MOMENT: McNeill closed with a 69 in Puerto Rico to hold off Japanese phenom Ryo Ishikawa -- winning for the second time in three tries when he held the third-round lead. The win snapped a string of six runner-up finishes since his inaugural TOUR victory in 2007. –- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM
ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Here's a man who was folding sweaters in a pro shop not all that long ago and is now a multi-tournament winner on the PGA TOUR. George had one big week and turned it into a victory at the Puerto Rico Open. Otherwise, he struggled with his iron play, hitting just 63 percent of his greens in regulation. That ranks 148th on TOUR.-- Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio
BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: Except for the hiccup that was 2010, he's been a serviceable investment deep in rosters. That said, he failed to post a top 35 in his last 13 starts this year, but he had suffered from a back injury in late July. When healthy, he's sneaky, so toss him onto your flier pile. -- Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
