JB Holmes

If the driver is seen as the best weapon in JB Holmes' armoury of 14 clubs - with the native Kentuckian averaging over 300 yards in driving distance on the US Tour for each of the past six seasons - he has also proven there is more to his game than long-driving. Holmes, who represented the United States in the Walker Cup before turning professional and winning the PGA Tour's Q-School in 2005, has claimed two titles as a professional. He won the Phoenix Open in 2006 and claimed the same event again in 2008. Holmes was also an integral part of the winning US Ryder Cup team at Valhalla in 2008. This season, he has shown great consistency with a runner-up finish in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and a third-placed finish in the Northern Trust Open in Los Angeles.
