Most Underrated Tour Players

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Thought this would be interesting to rehash - One guy I was surprised to see that is still very high in rankings is Adam Scott at 8th in the world.  Had no idea he was even in the top 40 to be honest.  Certainly not underrated and gets a lot of coverage, but did not realize the high level he's been playing at.

I think mine could be Sungjae Im at least for his record while on my fantasy league lol.  The guy just continues to get me points and is 20th in the rankings currently.

Abraham Ancer is one that I expect to have a solid pro career...

Throwback shout-out to Vijay Singh: I think people forget how good he was during the “prime Tiger” era

Vijay is a jerk. Was a good player at one time, but a complete jerk.

Interesting, he sat at my bar once when I worked in the service biz in college. I was like hey you're Vijay Singh, right? I said nice to meet you and he nodded and smiled. Left a nice tip as well. No one else knew who he was.

My vote goes to Tony Finau though. He's gotten so close a few times now. His time is coming for his first win, and then I think he'll manage at least a few more and a major!

A few years ago I would have said Kevin Na. I’ve been burned by him on DraftKings so many times. I’m a fan of Hideki Matsuyama and I hope he can get a few Majors.

I've run into him several times: there is not a genuinely nicer guy .He's already won on tour, but I wonder if he's a good enough putter to close out a major or a big tourney...

He basically gave Webb Simpson the WM  earlier this year.

But I'm always pulling for him!

I mean since the tour has restarted I would go with Viktor Hovland. He has the 3rd best below par behind Ancer and Bryson. Just quietly putting up great scores each week.

Ohh didn't know he had a PGA tour win, thought it was just on one of the other tours. Niceeee! I've tried to get him to play with me twice via Instagram while he's been on the island. I saw him make an ace at the Sony it was sick!

Yeah, Tony won the Puerto Rico Open in 2016. It's the alternate event played alongside the WGC Match Play.

For me, I gotta go with Francesco Molinari.  Talk about a great ball striker.  He just hasn't been the same since he dunked that ball in the water at the Masters, but he to me is super underrated.

Francesco was on a tear for over a year, I think he’s just regressed back to the mean...
But his swing is just smooth: always seems b tempo and effortless

I mean I know it's been mentioned before but how about the way Webb Simpson is playing! He has won twice since the season began and he is leading currently. Dude could win 3 tournaments before a major is even played.

I'm trying to figure out how we're defining "under-rated".  Is it simply not getting any coverage?  I'd go Kiz but the foreplay boys have brought his stock up.  Na is a great pick as well but his social media presence brings him way up.  Also like Abraham Ancer though. 

The guy who I think of is Webb Simpson.  He's won a major but I just rarely hear him outside of golf circles get any credit.  I guess I look at it in a way where if I went out and asked people if they ever heard of ________, not sure he'd be on anyones mind.

Did you know that Tyrell Hatton is the 15th ranked player in the world (9th in the Sagarin rankings) leads the tour in SG-Total, is 5th in scoring average and currently 15th in the Fed Ex Cup despite only playing 6 events on tour?

Yup that's why he is on my fantasy team!

 

And yes I agree Web doesn't get the praise he should.
