Arnold Palmer's grandson won a Florida state championship in high school and played college golf at Clemson before skipping his senior season to turn pro. He has yet to earn full-time status on the PGA Tour -- he's made seven cuts in 21 career events -- and had a miserable 2013 season on the Web.com Tour, earning just $27,156 in 19 events. But Saunders was able to keep his Web.com Tour card thanks to a clutch performance at last December's Web.com qualifying school, where he finished 11th.
