2019 has come to an end, and while there was plenty of incredible golf that was played in this year, 2020 is upon us, and we are eagerly waiting to see what the year will bring. After all, it isn’t just another year, but a whole new century!
At the end of each century, we love to analyze the golfers that made a mark, and in the coming 10 years, we have a list of some golfers you should keep an eye out for, starting in 2020. A lot has changed in the last 10 years.
This was the decade that saw Tiger Woods’s career derailed, and everything we knew about golf changed. There was plenty of concern for the future, and some new golfers came into the scene during Woods’ absence. In 2020, here are some golfers you should know about.
This is a Norwegian player who won the 2018 US Amateur, Low Amateur during the 2019 US Open, and the Masters. A lot has been written about him, and it’s all for the right reasons. He showed exceptional strength during the tournaments and proved that he was a strong professional, and everyone knows what an excellent young talent he is.
2020 is slotted as the year where he will get into the winner’s circle. He also has a very good chance of making his first-ever Ryder Cup during the Whistling Straits.
This is a 21-year old South Korean Golfer who won the Genesis Championship and web.com’s Rookie of the Year in 2018. In addition, he won the PGS rookie of the year in 2019. He is part of the 100 top Korean male players, which is an excellent feat on its own.
In 2020, we are expecting to see him come out of his shell and showcase his talent to a wider audience.
This is a player from the US who has won the Korn Ferry tour twice. As far as golf goes, he is arguably one of the hottest players on the planet right now and was ranked slightly outside of the top 1500 players in 2019. He is probably going to become one of the best players in the years to come.
Akshay Bhatia is only 17 years old and won the 2019 Walker Cup. He is definitely a golfer we should all be keeping an eye out for in 2020. Ranked at position 2061 in the world, he is an American that has received plenty of attention and could become as big as Mathew Wolff.
In 2020, we are expecting to see much more of his talent.
Guido Migliozzi is actually ranked number 110 worldwide, which is one of those achievements most players only dream of. He is a two-time winner of the European Tour and only turned professional in 2016. He did struggle at the beginning where he missed out on the first 10 Alp Tour games but quickly corrected this by winning three times during the European Tour.
We fully expect him to burst out of the top 100 in 2020, and there is no doubt that he shall be the most interesting golfer to keep an eye on.
Victor Perez is ranked at position 51 in the world. He won the 2019 Alfred Dunhill Championship, and he is from France. He has clawed his way up the golfing ladder from the bottom and has so far participated in the European Tours, and the Alps. He has been consistent and solid, showing great improvements during each competition.
We are keeping an eye out for him in the 2020 golf season to see what he shall achieve.
Calum Hill is a 19-year old Scottish player who has won the Challenge Tour twice during the 2019 season. He is a darling of Scottish golf and one that must not be overlooked. He rarely ever misses the cut and always looks comfortable when he is on the big stage. This is clearly shown in his 2018 US open performance in Shinnecock Hills. This was his first major performance, and after only two rounds, he made the cut.
We look forward to seeing what is in store for him in 2020. We are certainly keeping an eye on him.
This is our list of the top 7 golfers to keep an eye on during the 2020 season. Not only are they young and ready, but they have already won some championships and the sky is the limit for most of them. One could even end up as the greatest golfer of all time. 2020 is gearing up to be one of the most anticipated years in golfing history, and we are looking forward to seeing the other players who shall emerge in the coming decade.
