1. Tiger Woods  +5 T40th


He was the favorite coming in, but he finished 40th. Is it a setback in the new swing change or  is he a broken man?  Only time will tell.


2. Luke Donald  +3 T22nd


Donald is the world No. 1.  I can't remember Donald ever being in serious contention in a major on Sunday.  His record says he finished 4th at the Masters in 2011 and 8th at the PGA last year, but I don't remember seeing him on TV.  Four missed cuts in majors the last three years is a better indication of his performance in the most important events.


3.  Rory McIlroy  +5 T40th


Given all the pre-tourmanent hype, I'm surprised that Woods and Mcllroy didn't play off for 39th place.


4. Keegan Bradley  +2 T27th


Needed to shoot three-under on Sunday to salvage some pride.


5. Bill Haas  +4  T37th


If the Fedex Cup is going to mean something, its champion had better play better than this.


6. Henrik Stenson +5 T40th


He was still in contention Sunday morning. That didn't last long, however, as he shot an 81 on Sunday, including a 44 on the back nine.


7.  Steve Stricker  +7 T47th

Maybe Stevo is over the hill.  He's another guy that cleans up in the regular events, but never shows up on a major leaderboard.


8. Charl Schwarzl  +8 T50th


He continued the Trevor Immelman tradition of doing nothing after winning the Masters.


9. Darren Clarke  MC


C'mon, man.  Get serious.  You didn't miss a shot in the British Open last year.  Since then you've played like a hacker.


10.  Jason Day, Gary Woodland  WD


I'm always a little skeptical when guys withdraw with injuries when they are way, way over par.
