Every sport features its share of new stars or potential stars to watch out for. Those are the players that can potentially carry the sport in the coming years and take it to new and greater heights. Of course, being a potential star does not always mean that the athlete is going to live up to all the promise and all the expectations that come with it. There are many cases when a young star’s career will fizzle out or that he would turn out to be just another ordinary player. And there are the hype jobs that are trumpeted as the so-called saviors and futures of their respective sports, only to be revealed as nothing more than players who got a lot of high profile marketing behind them very early on.The sport of golf has its very own share of superstars, to be sure. The established names that have been carrying the sport and making sure that the sport continues to flourish, those are the players who are deemed its superstars of golf. And the new and promising ones are there; ready to take on the mantle of the established stars once it is their time to do so. If you would like to meet some of the new golfers that you should be watching more closely in 2013, then the following lists some of them: Keegan Bradley – Keegan Bradley already has a total of seven professional wins under his name at the age of 26, which puts him in a very good place and makes him poised for more success this year. His victories include the 2012 WGC Bridgestone Invitational, the 2011 HP Byron Nelson Championship, and the 2011 PGA Championship which also happened to be his first major victory. With his victories steadily growing and the possibility of many more down the line, Keegan Bradley is certainly someone to watch out for in the pro golf scene, not only this year but in years to come. The possibility of him going higher on the top 100 list is getting stronger as time passes by, and he is currently at number 15.
Branden Grace – Branden Grace is one of youngest golf prospects to watch this year. At the age of 24, he actually made history last year by becoming the first player ever to win his first four tour events in the European Tour during the same year. Grace, turned professional back in 2007 and has already had six significant victories as a professional, and among those victories is the 2012 Volvo Golf Champions tournament where he bested Retief Goosen and Ernie Els, among others.
Nicholas Colsaerts – Nicholas Colsaerts, who is also known as the ‘Belgium Bomber’, has already tallied 9 professional victories ever since he turned professional back in 2000. At age 29, Colsaerts’ biggest victory up to this point has been his T7 finish during last year’s Open Championship – where he was ahead of Rory McIlroy by a full 53 tiers. This was certainly his most significant win, the one that put his name on the map, sp to speak.
