The fact we've had some pretty great major champions the last few years got me thinking to how many this year are brand new ones......and the answer is 0.
Which got me thinking......how often does it happen that you go through a major season without a first time major winner?
Did some research. If a first-timer doesn't win the PGA, it will be just the 4th time since WWII that a first-time major champion didn't break through in a season. The other 3 instances were 1972, 1980 and 2000 (the year Tiger won 3).
