UNITED STATES

Tiger Woods (10-9-1): World number one is on a roll and has found a four-ball partner in Furyk. Look out.

Jim Furyk (10-6-2): Steady and deadly on Sunday. He's unbeaten in singles (4-0) in this event. He's 7-1-1 in singles between Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup.

Phil Mickelson (9-12-7): Still looking for his first win on Sunday at the Presidents Cup (0-3-3).

Zach Johnson (rookie): He struggled in the latter part of the season, but is coming off a second at Tour Championship.

Charles Howell III (3-2-0): Had a hot start to the year (a win and two seconds in first five events), but has faded badly (best finish since April is T18; missed six cuts).

David Toms (2-7-0): He hasn't played well since missing the cut at the British, but closed with a 67 last weekend.

Scott Verplank (2-2-1): Veteran is coming off a very solid year and has had seven top-10s in last 10 events.

Steve Stricker (2-3-0): The feel-good story of the year. He finished outside the top 125 three years in a row (2002-05), but has a win, two seconds and a third this year.

Stewart Cink (5-3-1): His experience will be needed. He had a solid, if unspectacular year (made the cut in 20 of 23 events; T3 at Players Championship).

Woody Austin (rookie): A fiery guy, he could wind up being an emotional catalyst for the American side.

Lucas Glover (rookie): With only three top 10s this year, he made the team on steady play. Ranked seventh in birdies, though, which is good for match play.

Hunter Mahan (rookie): He had a breakthrough year. Ranked second in combined driving and fifth in all-round.

INTERNATIONAL

Ernie Els (10-8-2): The Big Easy's game, slowed the last couple of years after a knee injury, has been coming around with a T4 at British and a third at PGA.

Adam Scott (6-3-1): Aussie's game has been solid since the PGA. He's unbeaten in foursomes (3-0-1).

Vijay Singh (12-13-5): Has had a spotty record in this event. He's won only one of six singles matches (1-3-2).

Geoff Ogilvy (rookie): Hasn't won this year, but lost in the final of Accenture Match Play.

Rory Sabbatini (rookie): Always entertaining, he likes to twist Tiger's tail. Everybody wants to see him go head-to-head with Woods.

K.J. Choi (2-3-0): Two wins and seven top 10's have moved him into 10th in world ranking.

Retief Goosen (9-5-1): A machine in four-ball with a 5-1 record, but putting, usually a forte, has let him down this year.

Angel Cabrera (1-1-3): Argentinian stared down Woods and Furyk to win the U.S. Open.

Trevor Immelman (1-3-0): Hasn't had a great year. He's missed the cut in five of his last 11 events.

Stuart Appleby (4-12-2): Aussie is still looking for his first win in singles (0-4). After Singh, he's rung up the most losses.

Mike Weir (8-6-0): If he can get on a roll, his presence on home turf will fire up the crowd and give the Internationals a boost.

Nick O'Hern (2-3-0): He's twice beaten Woods in match play. Will he get another chance here?
