So with the start of the new PGA tour season coming around, I wanted to take the time to tell you about a couple players that you should keep your eye on over the season.

Jordan Speith- This guy is one of my favorite golfers, he burst onto the scene last year when he tied for second at the Purto Rico Open in March.  He followed up that with some top tens to earn special temporary member status on the PGA tour.  Might I add while doing this he was only 19.  Shit when I was 19 I barley knew what I was gonna eat for breakfast and this dude is out there not just playing on the PGA tour but competing.  His big moment came when he won the John Deere Classic in a 3 way sudden death playoff.  Beating Zach Johnson and David Hearn.  He was the first teenage winner in 82 years, this win also got him full status on the PGA tour.  No he didn’t not play well in any majors last year but I have a good feeling about what is to come for this young lad.

Henrik Stenson-  No he is not a player that is any means under the radar, but honestly I never heard a lot of talk about him.  Even though he was the first player ever to win the European tour’s race to dubai and also the Fedex cup in the same year.  Yes I know Luke Donald had a year like that and then proceeded to play like absolute poop the next year.  But this guy is different, he has the confidence and the skill to win many tournaments next year. I will even go as far as saying he will win a major no doubt.
