BILL HAAS

Age: 30.

Country: United States.

World ranking: 27.

Worldwide wins: 4.

Majors: None.

Best 2012 performances: Won the Northern Trust Open.

2012 majors: Masters-T37, US Open-Cut, British Open-T19.

Backspin: Haas lived up to his potential when he won at Riviera in a playoff over Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley, but more has been expected of him. He has finished inside the top 20 only once since then, and that was at the British Open when he was eight shots behind. One trend from the final major? It has been nine years since the PGA champion had not won earlier in the year. Haas is good enough that he can reappear at the right time. And this would be a good time.
