Adam Scott is the new world no. 1, and he will have his hands full trying to stay there.
Matt Kuchar was the hottest player in the game throughout April. He finished T4 at the Valero Texas Open, lost in a playoff at the Shell Houston Open, finished T5 at The Masters, and the won the RBC Heritage.
Bubba Watson is having the best season of everyone inside the top-10 with two wins and two seconds. He won the Northern Trust in February with back-to-back 64s on the weekend, and won The Masters for the second time in April. There is no one in the game who is more talented than Bubba, so it is all a matter of staying focused and putting the work in to be the best.
20-year-old Jordan Spieth is seemingly in contention every week, and headlines the young talent on Tour.

Tiger Woods and Jason Day are both battling injury right now. It is a shame because the major venues favor Tiger’s game, and Jason Day started the year off hot with a win at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.
Henrik Stenson has not been able to back up his FedEx Cup and Race to Dubai victories last season.
Justin Rose had to deal with a shoulder injury earlier in the season, but is rounding his game into form with three top-10s in his last three starts.
Rory McIlroy had a putt at the Honda Classic to claim his first victory since the 2012 BMW Championship, but he ended up losing in a playoff.
Sergio is playing great golf this season, and is poised to capture his first win on Tour since the 2012 Wyndham.
