Chris DiMarco/Josh Teater/Bud Cauley — Cauley, a PGA TOUR rookie is coming off a tie for fourth.

Michael Bradley/Ryan Palmer/Justin Leonard — The two Texas natives, A&M’s Ryan Palmer and UT’s Justin Leonard, should have a good following. Bradley went to arch-rival Oklahoma, though.

Keegan Bradley/Graeme McDowell/Lee Westwood — Two major winners in Bradley and McDowell, plus the world No. 3 in Westwood, made this a high-powered group.

Hunter Mahan/Johnson Wagner/Steve Stricker — All three are already winners in 2012 and Wagner regained the FedExCup lead with a tie for fourth last week.

Jamie Lovemark/Seung-yul Noh/Danny Lee — This is an international group of young guns with Lovemark from the U.S., Noh from Korea and Lee a Korean turned Kiwi.

Phil Mickelson/Charl Schwartzel/Fred Couples — Mickelson is the defending champion, Schwartzel is one week from his defense at Augusta National and Couples won on the Champions Tour Sunday.

Kyle Stanley/Anthony Kim/Ernie Els — Stanley and Kim are fine young players but all eyes will be on the veteran Els as he has one last chance to punch his ticket to Augusta National.
