    John Schwarb is the Web.com Insider and a PGATOUR.COM Contributor. Each week, Schwarb will size up the field and provide his top 5 players going into the tournament, based on factors such as the player's strengths, the course setup, recent performances, etc.

    After opening the season with four of five events outside the U.S., the Web.com Tour takes one more trip south of the border until returning to the States and Canada for the rest of 2014.

    The El Bosque Mexico Championship has at times offered a clue to who will be the top dog for the season. Jamie Lovemark (2010) and Michael Putnam (2013) both won in Mexico and eventually finished atop THE 25 (Putnam was best in the Regular Season) and took Player of the Year honors.

    It doesn’t hurt that this week’s purse is $700,000, with $126,000 going to the winner at El Bosque GC. That’s the biggest prize the players will see until mid-July.

    Will be a fan favorite in Leon, a 2-hour drive from his native Guadalajara. Followed his breakthrough win in Panama with a solid T17 in Louisiana.

    Is the seven-time Web.com Tour winner building toward No. 8? Has played twice this year, a runner-up in Panama and T17 in Louisiana. Was in the hunt in Mexico through three rounds last year before fading to T12.

    Another strong rookie, his T3 in Louisiana was his best finish so far. The 25-year-old Mississippi native also has two other top-15 finishes.
