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: After six top-10s, including a pair of runner-up finishes and one third, Matt Every is clearly a victory waiting to happpen. Putting four rounds together is key — His final-round scoring average was 104th on TOUR this year.
2012 DEFINING MOMENT: His wife, Danielle, weeks away from delivering the couple’s first child, was in Every’s gallery for all 72 holes as he posted his first runner-up finish of the season at the Valero Texas Open. He missed a birdie putt on the 72nd hole that might have forced a playoff. –- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM
ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Matt showed up at The Sony Open with a huge black putter, and I couldn’t tell if he was trying to make birdies or trying to kill something for dinner that night. He ended up sixth that week and went on to make almost $2 million. Matt made a lot of birdies all year long. A birdie every 3.85 holes was 13th best average on TOUR.– Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio
BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: Resoundingly successful 2012 during which his wife gave birth to the couple’s first child. Given that he admitted that he doesn’t mind missing cuts — he missed nine and withdrew once in 25 starts — he can be a gamble in weekly formats, but he also peppered his résumé with six top 10s en route to $1.972 million. From our standpoint, he deserves to rank much higher than his spot in this feature, just stick with full-season games if you invest. — Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
