Hot Rising Golf Stars to Watch

Sure, we could write about Tiger Woods the same way we write about the Williams sisters, differences in sports aside. But we wanted to cover some new players in golf, players that have really started to rise to the top. We found plenty of interesting people, but the list below reflects something special. See, golf is an exciting sport to watch and if you understand the game, you can actually make money on the spread if you play your cards right.

Let’s move on to the list.

1. Cheyenne Woods

Cheyenne Woods

OK, we’re cheating a little bit: we knew it would get your attention if we had someone like this at the top of the list. She’s the niece of Tiger Woods, legendary golfer extraordinaire. But if the only thing she brought to the table was bloodlines, we wouldn’t bother making this paragraph at all. The truth is that she’s got some great performance behind her: she won the 2014 Australian Ladies Masters, and she’s also an LPGA Tour rookie. Going pro definitely is different from junior golf, but Ms. Woods seems prepared for the challenge. She turns heads not only on the golf course, but also due to her stunning looks. Perfect combination of beauty, brains, and skill.

2. Peter Uihlein

Peter Uihlein

Given that his father is the CEO of a golf equipment company, you probably aren’t surprised to see the son shining in the golf world. Uihlein is a fairly new face on the professional golf scene after making the decision to go pro in 2011. He was named Player of the Year twice by the American Junior Golf Association, only the first person to win more than once.

Uihlein took first place at the Madeira Islands Open in 2013, and dazzled the European Tour crowd. It will be interesting what he does this year and beyond.

3. Jason Day

Jason Day

We know that there’s been some media fanfare over Jason Day, but there’s a good reason for that. He’s been a pro since 2006, a very interesting length of time in golf. Long enough to be seen, but not necessarily long enough to qualify for legend status just yet.

Don’t worry, he’s trying: he’s already had 3 wins in 2015, pulling in over six million dollars. If youíre thinking about tennis betting, Day isn’t a bad player to watch. Golf handicapping works a bit differently, of course, but you’ll learn more about that later.

We could have picked plenty of other interesting players to watch, but we wanted to give you an interesting sampling to think over as you watch different games.
