A new PGA Tour season means fans can expect another collection of under-the-radar players taking home trophies in 2013-2014. But that doesn't mean they have to be under your radar. For the past three years, we've highlighted some unheralded golfers -- like Robert Garrigus in 2011, Kyle Stanley in 2012 and Billy Horschel (right) in 2013 -- who have gone on to do big things. So who will surprise on the PGA Tour in a new wrap-around season that starts this week with the Open? First, let's start with our criteria for being a "sleeper." The player cannot have won on the PGA Tour or have ever qualified for the Tour Championship. Using that as a guideline, here are 11 true sleepers we think have the potential to make a big splash in the 2013-2014 season.

PGA Tour: Hideki Matsuyama

Hideki Matsuyama

Matsuyama didn't play particularly well at the Presidents Cup, but the fact he was at Muirfield Village after turning pro six months earlier tells you everything you need to know about the 21-year-old. After top 10s at the U.S. and British Opens, Matsuyama will play a lot more PGA Tour events this year, including the season opener, the Open.
