The PGA Tour stays in the state of Florida this weekend after a very entertaining tournament at the Honda Classic last weekend. This week the field gets much tougher as they'll head to Doral for the WGC-Cadillac Championship. You can see the complete list of round 1 tee-times here.

The field is much better this week, featuring all of the top ten players in the world, not to mention Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. All together, the members of the field this week have won 33 Majors combined. Rory McIlroy earned the No. 1 ranking in the World with his victory last week, and he'll have an opportunity to put some distance between himself and Luke Donald for that distinction.

But the big name in the field, again, is Tiger Woods. If Tiger had a better first round last week, he very well may have won the Honda Classic. He shot a final round 62, the lowest final round score of his career, reminding some just how dominant he can be when all the parts of his game are clicking. Now everyone will expect him to deliver similar results this weekend. Can he rise to the challenge?
