Why he's on the list: Steve Stricker is like a fine aged wine. After more than a decade of middling rankings and average performance, he missed qualifying for the PGA Tour in 2005 and spent some quality time hitting balls out of a trailer in Madison, Wisc. In the past two years, his true flavor emerged as he finished back-to-back seasons in the PGA Tour's top five. Another stint in the trailer and Stricker might be able to taste a major.
