Is Matt Kuchar really the fifth-best player in the world? And what's up with Tiger's T-40 finish at The Players? And who will be the next player to use the HP Byron Nelson Championship as a springboard to success?

Richard Durrett joins the ESPN.com panel of experts dish on that and more in the weekly Four-Ball. Here's Richard's take on Kuchar:
Matt Kuchar has eight top-25s in 10 events played, just won The Players Championship and is second on the tour in scoring. He's playing like one of the best players in the world. But I'll admit: I don't care as much about the Official World Golf Rankings as I used to. Maybe it's because there seems to be so much fluctuation in it, though that's simply another nod to the fact that the PGA Tour is deep.

At first glance, Kuchar hasn't won a major and is fifth in the world. But in this day and age, I'm OK with it. More accurately, I just don't care. Players tee it up every week to find out who is the best in that four-day period. That's good enough for me.
