Athlon Counts Down the 30 Golfers to Watch for Majors Season

They’re the cream of the major championship crop, circa 2014 — the Athlon Major Championship Dream Team. Leading up to The Masters, we'll be unveiling Athlon Sports’ 30 players to watch for majors season, with commentary on each from the Golf Channel’s Brandel Chamblee.

No. 10: Brandt Snedeker

Born: Dec. 8, 1980, Nashville, Tenn. | Career PGA Tour Wins: 6 | 2013 Wins (Worldwide): 2 | 2013 Earnings (PGA Tour): $5,318,088 (5th) World Ranking: 20

Brandel Chamblee's Take

Brandt Snedeker has finished third and fifth, respectively, the last two years on the money list, and has two wins in each of those seasons. Had he not been sidelined with an injury for a period in 2013, he might have challenged for the money title as well as the FedExCup. From 50-125 yards, he was the best on Tour last year and continues to enjoy tremendous success on the greens as well. A streaky player because he struggles tee-to-green periodically, he is unfazed by miscues and continues to play decisively, which makes him fun to watch and also makes him better than the sum of his statistics.
