Chris Kirk is going to be a big winner on the PGA TOUR. He showed that promise in 2012 during a very successful rookie season. From juniors to college to the Nationwide Tour, Kirk has shown that he's got the game and the mental approach to handle any stressful situation. He's always been able to project an aura of calm, even when things are getting wild. Kirk challenged at the Shell Houston Open, where he finished second, and broke through three months later by winning the Viking Classic. He made his debut at the PGA Championship and tied for 34th. This is just the start of what should be a long, successful professional career for a young man who sometimes seems to be without a pulse. - Stan Awtrey, Correspondent
