One of the big takeaways from this year's Masters is the stunning ability of 23-year-old Thorbjorn Olesen.

He wound up in sixth place at four under despite shooting a 78 in the first round as he stalled out in his first tournament round around Augusta.

Olesen has the game to contend on any course. He is 23rd in driving accuracy and 26th in distance.

While he is short on tournament experience, he is proving he can handle the pressure. He picked up a win on the European Tour last year, and he has a ninth-place finish in last year's British Open to go with his impressive Masters' showing.

As the Golf Channel informs us, with $485,700 in earnings this year, Olesen now has temporary membership on the PGA, and he is going to continue to rocket up the money list. 

Olesen was forced to withdraw from the Houston Open with whiplash, but other than that, his last Tour stop prior to the Masters was a seventh-place finish at Bay Hill.

This youngster is headed toward a long and profitable career on tour.
