They tend to lead tournaments after the first day--then miss the cut.
They tend to win a tournament, and then go years without another victory.
They tend to reveal glimpses of brilliant golf, but suffer from rampant, mediocre play.
They are the under-achievers of the PGA Tour; archetypes of inconsistency.
From short-hitting lefty's, like Mike Weir, to gargantuan righty's, like Bubba Watson, these are the players who can surprise and thrill as easily as they can disappoint and collapse.
This batch of players have recorded wins, lead in some of the most significant stats on Tour, and some have even recorded major championships.
But be weary of the facts and figures, for they can easily deceive.
I respect, even admire, each and everyone of these players, which is why I want them so badly to take the next step and breakthrough into the elite of the PGA Tour.
