Webb Simpson was a solid pro entering the 2011 season, but who could have seen his spectacular campaign coming? Even more unlikely was the major breakthrough of two-time winner and PGA champion Keegan Bradley in his rookie season. Who will surprise on the PGA Tour this year? First, let's start with our criteria for being a "sleeper." The player cannot have won before on the PGA Tour and he must have finished outside the top 50 on last year's money list. Using that as a guideline, here are 10 true sleepers we think have the potential to do big things in 2012.

Seung-yul Noh

Seung-yul Noh

For the past two years, the South Korean phenom has popped up in World Golf Championships and majors, but we'll see more of him in the U.S. in 2012 after the still-20-year old finished T-3 at Q School. The owner of one of the sweetest swings in the world, Noh won a European Tour event at the age of 18 in 2010, and he made the cut in all three majors in which he played last year.
