The list of champions already includes household names on the PGA Tour such as Bill Haas, Camilo Villegas and Rickie Fowler. The roster of alumni who weren't able to break through to the top of some of the loaded fields included Lucas Glover, Dustin Johnson and Nick Watney.
Many of the next generation of pro golfers will tee it up starting today for the 12th annual Players Amateur on Belfair Golf Club's West Course. The field of 75 players includes some of the top collegiate players in the country -- recently crowned NCAA champion John Peterson of LSU among them -- and plenty of international talent, including the usual Australian contingent.
But it doesn't include any past champions, so who will be the next to add his name to the impressive list of Players Amateur champs?
