MATTEO MANASSERO

Age: 20.

Country: Italy.

World ranking: 26.

Worldwide wins: 4.

Majors: None.

At his best in 2013: Won the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

At his worst in 2013: Missed the cut in the Masters and U.S. Open.

British Open moment: Low amateur in 2009 at Turnberry, where he played with Tom Watson the opening two rounds and finished four shots out of a playoff.

Pot bunker mentality: No one this young has won golf's oldest championship since Young Tom Morris in 1870. Manassero seems older because he already has won four times on the European Tour, including its flagship event in Europe. Length is his greatest asset. Length is not a primary weapon at Muirfield. Tiger Woods wears a red shirt on Sunday. Manassero wears green pants.

DUSTIN JOHNSON

Age: 29.

Country: United States.

World ranking: 24.

Worldwide wins: 7.

Majors: None.

At his best in 2013: Won the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua, his sixth straight year with at least one PGA Tour win.

At his worst in 2013: The endless photos of him and girlfriend Paulina Gretzky.
