2011 Golfer Countdown

WORLD GOLF RANK: 30 (as of Feb. 6, 2011)
GOLF CHANNEL’S BRANDEL CHAMBLEE GIVES HIS TAKE: Rickie Fowler did not disappoint in his rookie year, being named head of his class. The putt he made on the 18th hole for a halve in his singles match at the Ryder Cup, and the poise it took to hit it, validated Corey Pavin’s captain’s pick and illustrated why he is one of the most exciting players to watch on Tour. Still, when a player of his length and wedge play is 110th in par-5 birdies, it says he is making mistakes in course management. A more experienced Fowler will win in 2011, likely early, and could capture a major.
