To preview the 2013 PGA TOUR season, PGATOUR.COM is counting down the Top 100 Players to Watch in 2013. For an archive page with the top 100 players and for an explanation on how the list was compiled, click here.
2013 PREVIEW: This rookie got a taste of the FedExCup Playoffs and liked what he saw. Finding a way to put four rounds together more frequently in 2013 will be key to getting there again.
2012 DEFINING MOMENT: Brian Harman’s lone top-10 of the season came at an opportune time as he opened with a 65 at Bethpage that left him one stroke off the lead. The Georgia grad went on to finish 10th and jump from 97th to 41st in the Playoffs, where he would last two more events. –- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM
ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: At 150 pounds, Harman might be the lightest player on the PGA TOUR but he certainly puts up big numbers. The rookie made 21 of 30 cuts including a fifth place finish at the Barclays. That’s a great rookie season. Standing just 5-foot-7, he still averaged more than 290 yards per drive. — Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio
BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: It’s still hard to digest that he’ll turn just 26 in mid-January, but he was ripe to reap a full season on the PGA TOUR, and that he did in 2012. The lefty went 21-for-30 with eight top 20s in his rookie year. What’s more, he carried a devil-may-care attitude around with him, which gamers crave. Deserved of a spot in all formats, including salary games at $1.146 million. — Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
