QUICK TAKE: 10 Players Under 30 With The Potential To Become PGA Tour Stars

I don’t have to tell you that we’ll never replace Tiger Woods, at least not in the lifetime of anyone reading this. In fact, it will probably take 10 players to replace Tiger and his 79 PGA Tour victories.

Here are the 10 best players under 30 who already are, or have the potential to be, stars on the PGA Tour:

  • Rory McIlroy, 27: 13 PGA Tour victories, 22 worldwide wins, No. 2 in the world
  • Jordan Spieth, 23: Eight Tour wins and two major championships, No. 6 in the world
  • Jason Day, 29: No. 1 player in the world, 10 Tour victories, one major
  • Justin Thomas, 23: Four wins, ranked No. 8 in the world
  • Hideki Matsuyama, 24: First Asian to win a WGC event, No. 5 in the world
  • Patrick Reed, 26: No. 9 in the world, five PGA Tour wins
  • Rickie Fowler, 28: Three Tour wins, including the Players Championship
  • Brooks Koepka, 26: One PGA Tour victory; many believe it’s just a matter of time
  • Jeunghun Wang, 21: Three European Tour wins, will compete at the Masters in April
  • Jon Rahm, 22: First Tour win came at 2017 Farmers Insurance Open, former No. 1 amateur in the world
