Every year on the PGA Tour, we get surprise contenders.  

People who we would not normally think of as tournament winners.  But on any given week, any player in the PGA Tour field has a chance to win, and if they get lucky with the putter or catch a few good breaks, all of a sudden, they find themselves holding the trophy on Sunday afternoon!  These are the surprise contenders so far in 2015!

Look at the winners and top finishers on the PGA Tour this season, and you’ll see a few surprises.

Sure, it was unexpected to seek Nick Taylor and Padraig Harrington win golf tournaments. However, the two aren’t really “surprise contenders” as they’ve done absolutely nothing since their victories.

And it may surprise you that Rickie Fowler stepped up to take home The Players Championship trophy. You may even been a surprise that Jordan Spieth has been continuing his meteoric rise with wins at the Valspar Championship and the Masters, but those two golfers aren’t really “surprises,” at least not in the way that the gentlemen on this list are.

These golfers are either playing well unexpectedly or surprisingly returning to form after some time in the rough.
