is the no.1 golfer in the PGA Tour world rankings. But he's being closely chased by Spain's mercurial Jon Rahm and a trio of supremely talented Americans in Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson. 

A resurgent Tiger Woods also prowls dangerously, with the sporting legend chasing a record 83rd PGA Tour win. Unfortunately, the Tiger is currently dealing with a back injury and has missed the last few events, so you won't see him if you watch The Players Championship this week.
