One of the great things about most sports is the anticipation that a new year brings. It’s that heady mix of optimism, excitement and expectation (however misguided) that percolates over those down months as you convince yourself that your favourite team or player can finally achieve greatness, even if they were putrid the last time you saw them go around. Not golf, however. Having wrapped up the 2014-2015 season just a day ago, a decent number of PGA Tour players are already planning their trip to Silverado Country Club, where they’ll be chasing the first points and prizemoney of the new season at the Frys.com Open in a fortnight. Whatever your position on the need for a PGA Tour break, it’s irrelevant, really, as the Tour will have no trouble finding players to fill the places in the field for the season-opening event. Indeed, there’ll be some big names there in California, trying to get a head start on the competition in the race for rankings and FedEx Cup points. After disappointing 2015 campaigns, here are five big names looking for redemption (and don’t worry, we’ll spare you the Tiger Woods discussion). OTG THIS time last year Mahan was celebrating a win at The Barclays and keeping his remarkable streak alive as the only player to have qualified for every single FedEx Cup event. At that moment he was ranked 19th in the world, but he is yet to register a win since, and recorded only four top 10 finishes for the year to slip outside the top 50 before settling at No.42. It was the first year since 2005 that he hasn’t snagged at least one top three result, and that’s not the Mahan we’ve come to know. A YEAR can be a long time in golf. Rewind about 10 months and Dubuisson was at a career high ranking of 17 after finishing T2 at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, and then kicked off the new year with a T4 at the Abu Dhabi HSBC event. But there have been few reasons to smile since for the Frenchman, who didn’t register a top three finish for the first time since 2010, and missed the cut at seven of the 18 events he contested internationally (including three of the four majors).
