With the new wrap-around schedule, the PGA Tour is already six tournaments into the 2014 season. When you get done picking Tiger, Rory, Phil, Sneds, Adam, Rosie, Kooch and Strix on your top lines each week, here are some young guys that may add some value to your fantasy golf picks in 2014.
Hadley had two wins in his rookie season on the Web.com Tour last season. He won the Web.com Tour Championship and finished third on the money list.
Peterson won the Web.com Tour Finals money title and full exemption onto the 2014 PGA Tour. He led the Web.com Tour in scoring average and greens in regulation.
Matsuyama burst onto the PGA Tour last season with top-10 finishes in both the U.S. Open and the Open Championship. He won five titles in Japan and was their leading money winner in 2013.
Cantlay won the Colombia Championship on the Web.com Tour in March and was ranked No. 1 on that tour early in the season. A bad back forced him to miss most of the year. If he can stay healthy in 2014, he will win early and often on the PGA Tour.
Martin was on the PGA Tour in 2011, but lost his card. Two years on the Web.com tour has prepared him for his second chance. He won twice last year and finished second on the 2013 Web.com Tour’s money list. He is only 26 years old and appears ready to play with the big boys this time around.
Noh finished No. 49 in 2012 on the PGA Tour, but failed to finish inside the Top 125 in 2013. He was forced to play in the Web.com Tour Finals to regain his tour card got the job done with a win at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship. Noh is only 22 years old and someone to watch next year.
This will be Hoffman’s second year on tour. He finished inside the Top 125 to retain his card for 2014, but missed the cut at The Barclays. He had three top-10 finishes last year and earned over $870,000. He is a somewhat of a wild card as he missed nine cuts in 20 starts on tour last year.
Koepka won three events on the Challenge Tour and earned membership to the European Tour last year. He led the Frys.com through the second and third rounds before falling to a third-place finish in the last round. He has moved to No. 86 in the world and we well soon be seeing him in the WGC's and majors.
2014 promises to be another exciting year on the PGA Tour. Join the fun pick your fantasy players each week.
