Our list of sleepers.
Hmm. Golfers you should keep an eye on…Anthony Kim? Just kidding AK has been a ghost since unceremoniously missing the cut and slamming his trunk at Quail Hollow in 2012. One of the most promising—and actually exciting—young golfers in decades has been on an extended sabbatical, his bold belt buckles gathering dust somewhere.
Unlike Kim, for whom golf is merely a “fond memory,” the golfers in this list will actually appear on the fairways of the PGA Tour this season. And the reasons for training your scope on them are many.
Click on for 10 golfers you should keep an eye on this year.

He finished 75th in the FedEx Cup points standing, and we expect him to improve on that showing this year.
