Golfers to Watch

Bubba Watson (15/1): No, he hasnt won a tournament since last years Masters, but Watson has quietly enjoyed a steady 2013. Aside from a disappointing T50 in his defense at Augusta and a missed cut at the Northern Trust two months ago, hes done no worse than T18 in his five other stroke-play starts, including two top-5's. And hes had plenty of success at TPC Louisiana, including a playoff victory here two years ago.

Jason Dufner (15/1): The defending champ has finished top-10 at the Zurich Classic four straight years now. His odds are a little lower because of his somewhat disappointing showing so far this year (no top-10's, two missed cuts), but his track record at TPC Louisiana is too strong to overlook.

Cameron Tringale (40/1): Not surprisingly, its been an up-and-down season for the 25-year-old. His last start was a missed cut at the Texas Open. But he followed up his previous MC (at the Honda Classic) with a solo third in Tampa. Tringale went T7 here a year ago, his second straight top-20 in this tournament. Hes a sneaky darkhorse this week.

Charles Howell III (40/1): Hes cooled off since a strong start to the year, following up a T10 in Houston with a missed cut at last weeks RBC Heritage. But hes another guy who has played very well at TPC Louisiana, going T2 in 2009 and T13 two years ago.

David Toms (50/1): Toms is still looking for his first top-10 in 2013, but his best showing came two weeks ago at Augusta when a final-round 67 moved him up to T13. The LSU alum finished T5 at TPC Louisiana in 2009 and T18 two years ago. He won the tournament in 2001 when it was still being played at English Turn Golf and Country Club (and was known as the Compaq Classic).
