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. 24: Bill Haas

Born: May 24, 1982, Charlotte, N.C. | Career PGA Tour Wins: | 2013 Wins (Worldwide): 1 | 2013 Earnings (PGA Tour): $3,475,563 (14th) World Ranking: 31

Brandel Chamblee's Take

Bill Haas has won five times in the last four years on some of the Tour's best courses and against some of the best fields and yet has failed to record even one top ten in a major championship. This lack of success in the game's biggest events can only be temporary, as Bill is just too talented not to start contending in majors. Winning last year at Tiger’s event, the AT&T National, might have been all the evidence he needed to convince himself what everyone who has seen him swing a club has been convinced of: that he is one of the best players in the world.
