While veterans like Martin Kaymer and Ian Poulter could also be listed in this space, Ancer, although he only has four professional victories to his name, could surprise in 2023. Last season, he earned four finishes in the top 11, and 11th is also where he stood in the Official World Golf Rankings just two years ago.
Casey is hard to leave out of the top 10 as he continues to be one of golf’s most consistent players. While he hasn’t won one, Casey has finished seventh or better in all four major championships, and earned three top-six finishes in five events during his first LIV Golf season.
A six-time PGA Tour winner who has often found himself in the mix at major championships over the past decade, Leishman earned one top-10 finish at Bangkok in LIV Golf’s first year, but remains a threat to contend in several tournaments this season.
Oosthuizen quietly played well in LIV Golf’s first season with five top-10 individual finishes and a team championship. A runner-up in all four majors and the 2010 Open champion, the South African is just a year removed from a 2021 season in which he finished third or better in three of four majors.
A big hitter with a unique swing, Wolff earned three top 10s in 2022 en route to a fifth-place finish in the individual point standings. The first golfer to make a hole-in-one during LIV action, Wolff is an up-and-comer in the pro ranks that had top-five finishes in two majors as recently as 2020.
