One thing is certain to catch your eye at the WGC-Cadillac Championships at the TPC Blue Monster at Doral starting today. The matchups are spectacular and the drama will undoubtedly be high throughout the tournament.

The Internet nearly crashed when the pairing of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Graeme McDowell was announced earlier in the week. Golf afficianados on Twitter tweeted the news at a dizzying pace and not even a tiff between swing coaches Hank Haney and Sean Foley could stop the momentum.

Even though the Woods/Mickelson/McDowell group is the most exciting, the group of Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald is the one with the best chance of having a winner.

We know the struggles of Woods as well as anything at this point in the world of golf. We also know how hot McDowell's game has been since his U.S. Open win in 2010. Additionally, we know Mickelson has been inconsistent but can strike at anytime. It doesn't matter. Kaymer, Westwood, and Donald are the top ranked golfer's in the world, respectively.

A Woods/Mickelson pairing is great for the fans, but the best golf will be coming from the top of the WOrld Golf Rankings. I made the mistake of believing in Woods during the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championships, but I've learned since then.

Take history out of it. Woods is who is right now. An inconsistent ball striker who also can't putt the ball into the hole with any regularity outside of four feet. Most of all, his head isn't right, and hasn't been since he ran his SUV into a tree, lost his wife and stopped seeing his kids every day. He said himself that his Tour schedule has been limited because he can only spend time with his kids at certain times.

I love watching Woods play golf, used to anyway, but the writing is on the wall that he won't be back on top of the golf world until he is, if ever, again. Which is why, while I'm happy Woods/Mickelson/McDowell are paired together, I'm more excited to see the play of Kaymer/Westwood/Donald. It's a no brainer.

With or without these high powered groupings, the WGC-Cadillac Championships is poised to be a thrilling tournament. In a post-Woods-dominating golf world, seeing other groups like Ian Poulter/Dustin JOhnson/Bubba Watson and Rickie Fowler/Ryo Ishikawa/Jhonattan Vegas is exactly what fans should want.

I've said it consistently throughout the season, the youth movement and power of European players has been the best thing for the PGA Tour since Woods came onto the scene. It's breathing new blood into the Tour and giving fans another reason to pay attention. Maybe they don't have to worry about the intimidation factor from Woods like so many others in the past, but I think, since these players are so young and carry an air of confidence so big, it wouldn't matter if Woods were still on top.

There's no doubt that the WGC-Cadillac Championship has the potential to be appointment TV this weekend, and if half of the player's in these featured groups plays to their potential, look out. 

My pick: Rickie Fowler
