Hideki Matsuyama
2013-14 Projected Earnings:
$500,000
Season Outlook: Matsuyama is one of the brightest young stars on the international golfing stage and proved it by making this year's Presidents Cup team. He will go straight from Muirfield Village to this week's Frys.com Open, starting his PGA Tour campaign at the earliest possible moment. The 21-year old had two top-10s in seven starts on the PGA Tour this year, including a T10 at the U.S. Open and a tie for sixth at the Open Championship. Fantasy owners take note: this kid is the real deal.

Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano
2013-14 Projected Earnings:
$450,000
Season Outlook: The big thing to note about Fernandez-Castano is something that you won't find on a stat sheet: he's played a bunch alongside Tiger Woods. That means that even in his limited time on this side of the Atlantic - playing in mostly majors and World Golf Championship events - he has experienced and performed well inside the circus that is Tiger Woods on the PGA Tour. Couple that with the fact that he can flat out play - he was first in putting from 10-15 feet on the PGA Tour last season - and you have a player who will almost certainly contend in a lot of big events this season.

Thorbjorn Olesen
2013-14 Projected Earnings:
$300,000
Season Outlook: Not many American fans may know much about the to-be 24-year old, but know this: he steps up in a big spot. His two top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour in 2013? Bay Hill and Augusta. Not too, shabby, huh? He's a young talent who may need some seasoning on some of the tougher courses that make up the PGA Tour schedule, but he has an extremely high ceiling and could be a sleeper fantasy for 2013-2014.

Darren Clarke
2013-14 Projected Earnings:
$200,000
Season Outlook: Clarke's decision to join the PGA Tour was a bit of a surprise, as the 2011 Open Championship winner hasn't played much golf the last couple years due to injury, and his major victory was - in the eyes of some - a fluke for someone on the back nine of his career. But he does get this privilege as a winner of golf's oldest championship, and maybe the ability to play in front of a new fanbase will inspire better play out of the longtime Ryder Cup stalwart.
