SEASON IN REVIEW: Prior to this year, Huh had never played in a PGA TOUR or Web.com Tour event. The 22-year-old wasted little time finding his footing, though, with a top 10 in his second start and a hard-fought playoff victory over Robert Allenby in his fifth at the Mayakoba Golf Classic. Huh, who had started the final round seven strokes behind Daniel Summerhays, needed eight extra holes to take down the veteran from Australia. He also tied for second at the Valero Texas Open despite opening with a 44 on the front nine. He is the only rookie playing at East Lake. – Helen Ross

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Fred Albers, on-course
correspondent for SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, provides a quick look at
What a rookie year. I had never heard of Huh last year at this time. I kept thinking his game would slump following his victory this spring, but he has been consistent. I can easily see John being a multi-winner on TOUR.
