Top Sleepers To Watch

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.

Despite turning 27 in September, Na has been a pro for more than nine years and has played in 186 PGA Tour events. A cut-making machine, Na played the weekend in 23 of 26 events in 2010. When it comes to the big moment, however, he just Na-ver (Sorry, couldn't help it) seems to get it done. Still, his top performances last year came against impressive fields (A T-2 at Bay Hill and a T-3 at the BMW Championship), and he has managed to rack up nearly $5 million in prize money the past two seasons. Na's accomplished resume -- including playing in the Tour Championship the past two years -- probably makes him the most borderline pick for this list, but his lack of a win has kept him under the radar enough to maintain "sleeper" status in our eyes. That should change soon.
