A big indicator of the state of Tiger's game can be found in his putting stats -- overall in putting he ranked 34th. He made only 65 of 73 putts inside 10 feet.

Phil Mickelson now has five top-12 finishes in six starts at Quail Hollow. The final three holes have made it hard for him to win. In 24 rounds, Mickelson is a combined 57 under on the first 15 holes, but 23 over on the final three. This week, he was 11 under on the first 15, but three over on the final three.

O'Hair and Mickelson, both past winners at the Players, head to Sawgrass with a lot of momentum. Adam Scott, also a past champion, is another story. He missed the cut in his last four events. Some crucial season stats: 67th in driving distance, 151st in driving accuracy, 135th in total driving, 94th in greens hit, 143rd in putting average.
