YOUNG TALENT


T


he youngest rookie on the PGA TOUR this season, Noh has played


in three majors each of the past two seasons, and made the cut in five of those six appearances, with a tie for 28th at the 2010 PGA Championship his best finish. He earned his card after he tied for third at Qualifying School, which came after he had built a nice body of work on the Asian Tour, joining it as a 16-year-old in 2008 and winning once. He added a win in 2010 on the European Tour, and now looks to win as a PGA TOUR rookie. The South Korean has been consistent: Over his first 25 PGA TOUR starts, Noh made the cut 17 times and had five top- 25 finishes, with one top-10.


JAMIE LOVEMARK (24) H


e hasn’t been the same player since undergoing back surgery last year,


but when healthy, Lovemark could be a star-in-waiting. He won the money title on the Nationwide Tour in 2010, the youngest to ever do so, but saw his rookie season on the PGA TOUR end in April with a back injury. He was a two-time All-American at Southern California, then nearly won on the PGA TOUR a few months after turning professional. He worked his way into a three-man playoff at the Frys.com Open with Rickie Fowler and Troy Matteson, who eventually won. He started this season playing on a major medical exemption.

ringale got off to a rocky start after getting through Qualifying School in 2009, but has steadily improved in each of his three PGA TOUR seasons. He rattled off three consecutive finishes of eighth or better, and tied for fourth at the Farmers Insurance Open back in January. He’s come a long way since making just 5-of-22 cuts as a rookie. In fact, Tringale made more cuts (23) in 2011 than events he played the year before, and is on pace to have an even bigger season this year. He made the winning putt for the U.S. in the 2009 Walker Cup. Can there be any greater pressure? ■
