HOT: JASON DUFNER
Golf's most lovable doofus inadvertently overwhelmed the Internet with his schoolboy cameo. But Dufnering should also be a term for fooling those who underestimate this driven overachiever.
NOT: GEOFF OGILVY
The übertalented Aussie needed a strong showing in Houston to play his way into the Masters. Instead Ogilvy hung up a second-round 79, missing the cut and continuing his career regression.
HOT: TEXAS OPEN

NOT: GUAN TIANLANG

HOT: SEAN FOLEY
