2010 Winner List? (I)

2010 Winner List? (I)

Look back the year of 2009, you can tell out the winners in golf who made history. What’s more, we should have the prediction to tell who will be the next winners to make their name in golf. Or these guys, the winners once, have the most chance to return to the winner’s circle.


Vijay Singh

He’ll be 47 in February, but he’s not too old to compete and win on the PGA TOUR. Look for Vijay Singh to get back in the victory circle after suffering through his first winless season since 2001.
The Big Fijian never really showed his old form after having surgery on his right knee in Jan. 2009. He didn’t play as often (only 21 events) and certainly not as well (only six top-25s). Other than a short stretch late in the spring, where he earned two of his three top-10s, Singh wasn’t often among the contenders.

He was eliminated after the second round of the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup, so he didn’t get a chance to defend his title. He also fell to No. 26 in the Official World Golf Rankings. But he continues to be one of the hardest workers on TOUR and his pride is likely to push him back into the top echelon. Expect career win No. 35 to come this season, possibly as early as the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, where he’s won before.

Anthony Kim

This one’s easy: Anthony Kim. Kim appeared headed for stardom when he won twice in 2008, had four other top-three finishes and thrashed Sergio Garcia in the Ryder Cup. But Kim failed to win in 2009, hurt by a suspect travel schedule that had him crossing the globe. He also battled nagging injuries and an admitted lack of commitment.


Kim says it’s been his recent pattern to follow up a bad year with a good year (and a good year with a bad year). He knows he needs to make more changes than simply dumping his caddie, Eric Larson, who was on his bag for both PGA TOUR titles in ’08. At some point, the player has to look in the mirror to find the true accountability.


Kim simply has too much talent to go through another winless season on the PGA TOUR. As long as he stays dedicated, he will lift at least two trophies in 2010.


Justin Leonard

Justin Leonard came close to picking up win No. 13 in posting six top-10s, including a playoff loss in the season-ending Children’s Miracle Network Classic.


At the same time, though, he wasn’t happy with missed cuts at the Masters and U.S. Open and while the share of eighth at the PGA Championship was better, Leonard knows he had room to improve in the biggest events on TOUR.


He has a major game and could have — maybe should have — won a couple more majors to go with the 1997 British Open. Each year, his game matures a little more, though, and, well, this is a Ryder Cup year. When he gets the ball rolling, he’s terrific on the greens.
