FOUR MORE WHO'LL ROAR: THE TOUR'S YOUNG GUNS OF 2008
WHY: Won the Nationwide Tour's Miccosukee Championship to vault from 43rd to 13th on the money list, earning a call-up to the PGA Tour. Plus, this grad's got golf in the blood: six of Turnesa's relatives have played the Tour, including great-uncle Jim, who won the '52 PGA, and grandfather Mike, who won six Tour titles and was second to Ben Hogan at the '48 PGA.
SECRET WEAPON: Can get up and down from the starter shack

WHY: This'll be the second crack at the PGA Tour for the Canadian Mills, who won the Albertson's Boise Open to earn his return ticket to the Show. Mike Weir named Mills as a player with a whole lot of game who just needs some seasoning. He makes a ton of birdies, carding nearly 400 last year, and he led the Nationwide with nine top-10 finishes.
SECRET WEAPON: He's a green-hitting machine

WHY: The blond Aussie six-footer played for Arizona State, the golf factory that brought us Paul Casey and Phil Mickelson. He now lives in Scottsdale, just like countrymen Casey and Geoff Ogilvy. Like those guys, Jones is wildly long and a good putter, too, which is partly how he demolishes the par-5s. He was 1st on the Nationwide last year in par-5 birdies or better.
SECRET WEAPON: Has super length off tee

WHY: Aussie, take two. The '03 U.S. Amateur champ chalked up three wins on the junior circuit last season including back-to- back victories at the Henrico County Open and the BMW Charity Pro-Am at the Cliffs to earn his "Battlefield Promotion" to the Show. Flanagan is the best putter of these four, and he ranks in the top 10 in final-round scoring average (69.83).
SECRET WEAPON: Great closer in the clutch
