Bait for Masters Game

Mr. GolfballFrom the 2005 Game:

We all get the list of the top ten ranked players at the tournament, and then pick the number of shots behind the winner that each of the “usual suspects” will wind up (with zero indicating your pick to win). Points are based on the difference between your pick, and the actual figure at the end of the final round. Winning player is the one with the fewest points (i.e. most accurate guesses). Players missing the cut are assigned 10 points…likewise, if you think a player will miss the cut, assign him a 10

Following are the top ten players in World Rankings according to ESPN as of Monday:

1 Tiger Woods
2 Vijay Singh
3 Retief Goosen
4 Phil Mickelson
5 Ernie Els
6 Sergio Garcia
7 Jim Furyk
8 David Toms
9 Luke Donald
10 Chris DiMarco

Post your picks as comments below; for BONUS, pick a player ranked 20 or lower in the world who will be in the final top ten.
