The PGA Tour web site has been counting down the top 100 players to watch in 2013. Today they're at #2, Tiger Woods. I think is is safe to say that the #1 player to watch which will be announced tomorrow is Rory McIlory. Here are 10 of our top players to watch for 2013.
From seemingly nowhere (at least due to media coverage or lack thereof) Brand Snedeker won the FedEx Cup and the $10 million. Furyk won it a couple of years ago and struggled the next season. Will Sneds have as good of a year as 2012?
Poulter finished the season as the hottest golfer on the planet. His Ryder Cup performance was amazing. Can he carry that momentum into 2012?
Rory McIlory won four times, including his 2nd major championship? Can Rory McIlory top his 2012 season? His game is suited perfectly for the Masters. Will he get his first green jacket in 2013?
From the first year he made it on Tour Keegan Bradley has been a force. In a short period Keegan has racked up three wins, including a major.
Has this former #1 player in the world missed his window of opportunity for a major championship? He's not getting any younger.
Phil Mickelson was poised to win another Masters this past year until he carded a triple bogey in the final round. Phil is getting older but still has game. Can he beat the young bucks on tour this year?
Luke Donald was ranked #1 in the world for quite a long time. This player, the first to win the money titles on both the PGA Tour and European Tours, has yet to win a major. In fact for the most part Donald's performances in majors have been a major disappointment. Can he get that elusive major win in 2013?
Bubba Watson hit the shot of the year on the 10th hole at the Masters, the first playoff hole. That amazing hooked gap wedge secured his first major win. Can Bubba win another?
This U.S. Open winner has been nothing but consistent. His consistency won him the U.S. Open. Simpson's 2013 season will be interesting to follow.
A bit of a dark horse pick for top 10 to watch in 2013, but Gary Woodland has been fighting off injury. If healthy this year, will Woodland finally live up to the potential and take advantage of the powerful game he possesses?
