The PGA Tour takes over Hilton Head, SC this week for The Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links. Any Midwestern golfer is dreaming of Hilton Head right now, as a cold front has pushed through and postponed play for a few days (hopefully at most). Nothing like jealously watching golfers play in beautiful weather when you can't leave the house without your umbrella and winter coat.

Gotta love the wintry mix in April. Speaking of a mix, Rob Bolton of has the Power Rankings up for this week's tournament. Aaron Baddely tops the list, with defending champion Jim Furyk ranking third.

Putting together any list or prediction in golf is about as easy as winning at the roulette wheel consistently. You can put some math and hypothesis behind it, but at the end of the day, it's a random sampling that you hope you get right. Don't believe me? Check out my picks in this column over the past year. Some good, some decent, most awful. Like Spring weather in the Midwest.

The Quiet After the Storm

Rory McIlroy would be the first to tell you the Masters was a storm. It was beautiful to watch, but for many golfers, it was also painful to see through.... and damage was left. Mostly, though, it was powerfully beautiful. Tiger made a run, Charl Schwartzel made a ton or birdies and won, and a couple Australians made things very interesting down the stretch. It built up and built up, and then it was done.

And the golf world seemed to go quiet. After we finished reading Column A about McIlroy's failure, Column B about how Tiger was so close, but couldn't pull it out, and then Column C about who the hell is Charl, we got stuck in a lull. The Valero Texas Open was nice to watch, and Brendan Steele persevered to make it good Sunday television, but it's hard to follow a "tradition unlike any other."

I found myself watching the Valero and thinking, "That course doesn't look half as good as Augusta," or "Where's the drama and the stars?" It's called letting Augusta spoil you, and I certainly did that. It made the Valero a little less enjoyable, but that's my own fault.

Now that the shine of Augusta has finally worn off after a week, it's time to look forward to the next major (even though it's technically not a major): The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass.

And, as is custom, the way to do that, is to see what Vegas has to say about it first...

....except I can't find one site with odds on the TPC. If you can, send it to @HurricaneGolf on Twitter. If golf would simply crown this the fifth major championship, we wouldn't have this problem, but that's a column for another day.

The bright side? You can snag Tiger to win the 2011 Money List at 5/2, the US Open at 6/1, or the British Open at 4/1 over at

(Insert betting on Tiger is just giving money to Vegas joke here)
