Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson and more. They're the stars of the PGA Tour and, understandably as well as deservingly, steal most of the headlines.
But, the Tour is pretty darned deep.
Here's a look at five players -- all PGA Tour winners -- who are underrated, perhaps under-appreciated -- and who you might just see hoisting some hardware in 2017.
PGA Tour victories: 4
Career earnings/all-time ranking (through 2016): $20,917,085/57th
Notes: Known most notably for his "Hulk Hogan" flowing blonde locks until chopping them off in recent years, Hoffman deserves credit for his play on the course. He's a streaky player, but certainly not one to be overlooked. When he's in a position to win, he cashes in evidenced by his four Tour wins. From 2013-15, Hoffman collected 17 top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour. He had just one in 2016... but if you're only going to have one, it was the one you want to have -- a victory in the Valero Texas Open. Expect more highlights than lowlights from Hoffman in 2017.
PGA Tour victories: 4
Career earnings/all-time ranking (through 2016): $20,943,883/56th
Notes: It's almost hard to believe that O'Hair is only 34 years old. He's been around forever, it seems. He's experienced the highs and the lows and looks to be on the comeback trail now. O'Hair's breakout season came in 2009, when he won the Quail Hollow Championship and finished No. 5 in the FedExCup standings. That, it turned out, would be his last Tour Championship appearance until this past September, where he ended the 2015-16 season in 27th. Things could be looking up again for O'Hair.
PGA Tour victories: 3
Career earnings/all-time ranking (through 2016): $20,949,477/55th
Notes: A three-time PGA Tour winner, Palmer has enjoyed a solid, solid career on the PGA Tour. Though he's only made two Tour Championship starts (2010 and 2014), Palmer has seven consecutive seasons in which he's made no less than $1.5 million, highlighted by his $2,924,300 in earnings in 2014 when he recorded eight top-10 finishes.
PGA Tour victories: 6
Career earnings/all-time ranking (through 2016): $26,417,450/34th
Notes: Winning six times on the PGA Tour is no joke. But much like his father -- Jay, a 9-time Tour winner with 16 major top 10s -- the younger Haas has had a highly successful, highly under-appreciated PGA Tour career up to this point. He's a quiet gentleman who doesn't show a lot of outward emotion on the course, but has proven he can put a dagger in your heart with shots like the one he hit from the water on the 17th hole at East Lake on his way to winning the 2011 Tour Championship and FedExCup. Perhaps the reason Haas flies under the radar is because of his lack of production in the majors. In 29 major starts, Haas's lone top 10 was a T19 in the Open Championship last summer.
Charles Howell III
PGA Tour victories: 2
Career earnings/all-time ranking (through 2016): $31,294,095/23rd
Notes: If I told you Howell has just two victories in his PGA Tour career and hasn't won since 2007, I wouldn't blame you for calling me a liar. It seems unimaginable for a guy who has banked over $31.2 million -- inside the top-25 in career earnings -- doesn't it? Yet that's where we stand with Howell. Hard to feel bad for the guy, I know, but something's got to give in the win column, right?
