Ten to watch in 2019
The biggest hitter on the PGA Tour by a distance won on only his second start. At 23, he’s an explosive talent.
The 22-year-old American won his first PGA Tour event last season and finished 24th in the Fedexcup.
The Englishman qualified for last year’s DP World Tour Championship in his first season on the European Tour, having won 2017 Q-school.
Viktor Hovland (amateur)
He became the first Norweigan to win the US Amateur in 2018 and played last year’s Australian Open, finishing 13th. The 25-year-old has already won the Tour Championship and the WGCHSBC Champions in his young career. He’s considered by many as a Major Champion in the making.
The supremely talented Matt Wallace is also someone you’d expect to challenge in a Major before too long. He won three times on the European Tour last season and was unlucky to miss out on a Ryder Cup pick.
The Spaniard won the Ras Al Khaimah Challenge Tour Grand Final and finished second on the order of merit to progress to the European Tour.
The young Belgian boasts a wonderful golf swing and won the 2018 World Cup of Golf alongside Thomas Pieters.
The South Korean, just 20, finished second in the Web.com Tour standings to earn a 2019 PGA Tour card.
The Japanese player won a pro event as a 17-year-old amateur. Still just 19, she took two LPGA Tour titles last year.
