2013 PREVIEW: John Huh made his way through three stages of q-school just to earn his PGA TOUR card, then claimed Rookie of the Year honors after winning the Mayakoba Golf Classic. Now that he knows he’s in it for the long haul, Huh can work on his consistency — all four of his top-10s came in his first 15 starts.
2012 DEFINING MOMENT: Huh, who had never played in a Web.com Tour or PGA TOUR event prior to last year, proved to be a quick study. He picked up his first top-10 in his second start and won his fifth — erasing a seven-shot deficit in the final round by shooting a bogey-free 63 and beating Robert Allenby in an eight-hole playoff. – Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM
ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Maybe the best nickname on TOUR: Johnny Question Mark. For a rookie to win a tournament and make the TOUR Championship shows a lot of ability. Last year at this time, few had even heard of John Huh, now he’s an established player on TOUR. — Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio
BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: What a year by the previously unknown now-22-year-old. What struck me early on and stayed with me during his 22-for-28 rookie year is that he fully accepts what he is as a golfer, and he plays to his strengths. He keeps it simple and he seemed utterly unfazed by his sudden rise. Love the conviction. Having advanced to the TOUR Championship, he’ll be able to set a schedule that will include the first three majors and the Cadillac Championship. Certainly, we’re still in a position in which we need to remain patient, but there are zero signs that he won’t carry his mojo into 2013. — Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
