Player to watch: Hunter Mahan

We continue our player to watch series with a look at a local golfer who could make some noise at Colonial.

Player: Hunter Mahan

Why he could win: Mahan is one of only two players with multiple wins on the PGA Tour this season and has the stats to do well at Colonial -- fifth in GIR, seventh in driving accuracy.

Why he might not win: His track record isn't great at Colonial and his last two events were a missed cut at The Players and a tie for 53rd at Wachovia.

Best career finish at Colonial: Tied for 10th in 2011

Best 2012 finish on PGA Tour: Won Shell Houston Open and WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship
