2013 PREVIEW: After a year to get acclimated to the United States courses and culture that nonetheless produced three top-10s, Seung-Yul Noh can really concentrate on his game this year. The 22-year-old has already won in China and on the European Tour.
2012 DEFINING MOMENT: Noh proved extremely consistent as a rookie, missing just four cuts in 24 starts to finish 37th in the FedExCup. His best performance came at the AT&T National where Noh broke par in the first three rounds to enter the final round one stroke off the pace before eventually tying for fourth. – Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM
ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Noh weighs just 165 pounds and yet he averages more than 300 yards per drive. He creates great clubhead speed with a wide arc and wonderful hand action. Sometimes long hitters are inconsistent, but Noh made 17 straight cuts on TOUR. He is a star in the making. — Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio
BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: … Other wunderkinds are getting more attention, but he’s earned every bit of his. The 21-year-old South Korean is already one of my favorite fantasy owns thanks to a 24-for-28 rookie campaign that featured three top 10s, another 10 top 25s and a season-ending streak of 17 consecutive cuts made. Already in possession of a sharp skill set for the modern game, he lacks only in experience, not that he led on in 2012. Worth every penny of $1.629 million. — Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
