1) Dustin Johnson, USA
Dustin Johnson has notched up a total of nine tour wins, with seven of them coming on the PGA Tour. Johnson turned professional in 2007 and by 2009 came in 15th on the PGA Tour money list, and has since finished quite strongly and consistently at the Majors. Johnson is also the first player since Tiger Woods to win at least one tournament a year for six consecutive years after graduating from college.
2) Ian Poulter, England
Ian Poulter has been in the game a long time and, despite playing well at the Majors, has yet to bag one. Even Seve Ballasteros said that the Claret Jug trousers Poulter wore in the 2005 and 2006 Open Championships would be "the closest [Poulter] would ever get to it". Poulter is undoubtedly a gifted player though, and time has not run out yet for the Englishman.
3) Jason Dufner, USA
The US Open has provided Dufner with one of his best Major finishes, but his up-and-down form makes him a long shot no matter what Major he qualifies for. Still, Keegan Bradley was a long shot for the 2011 US PGA Championship, so who knows what might become of Dufner at the US Open ...
4) Steve Stricker, USA
Steve Stricker's been in the game for a long time, has 20 tournament wins, has been ranked in the world top ten for quite some time and has been awarded the PGA Tour Comeback Player of the Year award twice (2006 & 2007). Stricker's a brilliant player, but his age may well just catch up with him and diminish his chances of winning that ever-elusive Major.
5) Rickie Fowler, USA
Rickie Fowler is a great prospect and was the world number one amateur golfer for a period in 2007 and 2008, but he is still raw and needs to iron out the creases in his game. Rickie may also need to improve on results outside of the Majors as well before he is taken seriously as contender for the top titles. Rickie has the potential, but does he have the will to follow-through with the talent at his fingertips?
