With plenty of dedicated golf fanatics across the globe and a lengthy list of likable players to watch out for, the 2020 PGA Tour is sure to be big and impressive.
As we turn our heads to this year’s tournament, it’s always fun to forecast each player’s chances of advancing to the top. With names like Tiger Wood, Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, and plenty of rising stars, it’s natural to wonder who will win big in this year’s PGA Tour.
To give you our fair share in the bet, here is a rundown of golfers who are expected to win big in the 2020 PGA Tour. From legendary stars to the rising greats of today, here are the seven players you might want to check out this year.
Who else would anyone bet on for this year’s competition other than the legendary Tiger Woods? Interestingly, 2019 was a great year for golf enthusiasts as this marked the year for Woods’ epic comeback. With a stunning victory at the Masters and a grand tie-up with Sam Snead’s all-time wins mark of 82, the public’s Tiger is sure to, once again, impress his way through the PGA Tour.
Let’s admit it, 2019 was a blessed year for Rory McIlroy fanatics. With his consistent week-to-week excellence and a PGA Tour Player of the Year award, it is only natural to expect yet another epic year for him that will likely add another major title to his mantle. We are all looking forward to seeing what he accomplishes this year.
Who would dare forget about Dustin Johnson? Perhaps, one of the biggest wonders in this year’s tour is whether the former world No. 1 will win another major championship in 2020. While Johnson spent 2019 in the shadows with failure to nick a single top-10 finish since the PGA in May, many still believe that the player will demonstrate a grand comeback and make 2020 a year of redemption and glory.
Topping last year with two wins and two second-place finishes in his final five starts, John Rahm is no doubt one of the most probable players to win big in 2020. As a 10-time worldwide winner, Rahm only has one thing missing — a major championship victory. Given the epic performances he demonstrated last year, many are expecting that 2020 will be the year he’ll finally scratch that off his bucket list.
At age 26, Justin Thomas has proven himself to be one of the top players you should watch on the golf course. With a CJ Cup title under his belt, the 2017 winner is among one of the biggest bets for this year’s PGA Tour. Although his recent season was hampered by a wrist injury, Thomas still managed to win twice and post eight other top-10s in 2019. With these credentials, it is not impossible that Thomas will capture his second major victory in 2020.
If there’s a golfer who would likely earn his first PGA Tour win in 2020, South Korean professional golfer Im Sung-jae would definitely top our list. Bearing the 2019 Rookie of the Year title with seven top-10 finishes last year, it is not hard to see Sung-jae advancing into a major victory.
Finishing T32 at the 2019 Masters and 12th at the 2019 U.S. Open, big things are expected from this 22-year-old rookie. In just a span of fewer than five months, Hovland had already reeled off 19 consecutive rounds in the 60s. He was able to secure his place in the PGA Tour at the Korn Ferry Tour finals and captivated many with his impressive and eye-catching two-step backswing.
