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.

Matt Wal­lace

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.
