Our bold list of 10 lesser-known PGA Tour players we expect big things from in 2011

Every year there are players who seemingly come out of nowhere to find success on the PGA Tour, and we expect the 2011 season, which kicks off with the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, to be no different. Following a 2010 in which the likes of Bill Haas and Jeff Overton broke through with surprisingly stellar campaigns, we've identified a group of 10 under-the-radar players, who have the potential to follow in their footsteps. None of these players finished in the top 35 on 2010's final money list and only three have tasted victory in their PGA Tour careers. For fantasy golf purposes, these players' overall lack of success could mean you gaining an edge. Keep these guys in mind when drafting your teams or setting your lineups because their best is yet to come.

Robert Garrigus

Robert Garrigus

We've all seen the highlights of his meltdown at the St. Jude Classic where he blew a three-shot lead on the last hole with a comedy of errors. However, the 33-year-old picked himself back up off the seat of his muddied pants and came up clutch in the season's final event at Disney. Thanks to a final-round 64, he not only jumped into the top 125 on the money list, but racked up his PGA Tour card for the next two years by winning the event. More settled nerves and a continued distance advantage (He's led the tour in driving distance the past two years) should put Garrigus in contention a few more times in 2011.
