Worldwide wins: 5.

Majors: None.

At his best in 2013: In a three-week stretch, was runner-up to Tiger Woods, runner-up to Phil Mickelson and won Pebble Beach.

At his worst in 2013: Sat on his couch at home to recover from recurring rib injury.

British Open moment: Tied the 18-hole record at Royal Lytham & St. Annes with a 64 and tied the major championship record with a 130 through 36 holes.

Pot bunker mentality: Snedeker has given himself two chances in the last four majors, and with his ability, that's seen as experience instead of failure. Pops his putts, which has proven to be a good stroke in links golf. The key to his week is keeping his tee shots out of the hay.

GONZALO FERNANDEZ-CASTANO

Age: 32.

Country: Spain.

World ranking: 40.

Worldwide wins: 6.

Majors: None.

At his best in 2013: Never shot worse than 72 at Merion and tied for 10th in the U.S. Open.

At his worst in 2013: Hasn't been in serious contention all year.

British Open moment: He is a combined 19-over par in his four Opens.

Pot bunker mentality: This would be called a long shot considering his record in the Open, but he is steady under pressure. Tied for 20th in the Masters and tied for 10th in the U.S. Open. Childhood friend of Sergio Garcia. When Garcia said at the Masters last year that he didn't have what it takes to win a major, Gonzo replied, "If this guy doesn't have it, how about me?" He has enough game.
