Each week, PGATOUR.COM's Fantasy Insider Rob Bolton offers his Power Rankings for the weekly TOUR event as well as his Sleeper picks. But what about the players who don't make the Power Rankings but who can't really be considered Sleepers?

He didn't crack the Power Rankings because he missed the cut in his only appearance at Bay Hill in 2011. In this deep field, experience on the host course is valuable.

Currently 28th on TOUR in strokes gained-putting and 26th in adjusted scoring.
