Woods wins USA PGA and 12th major

With his 12th win in Golf's majors the domination of Tiger Woods shows no sign of ending. This year alone he has won two out of the four majors and is starting to dominate golf again. In terms of players he is a class of his own and I've no doubt that the record of 18 majors held by Jack Nickalus is well within his grasp, he is only 30 years and could go on for many years to come.

As for European golfers, the losing streak in the majors continues, the last success being Paul Lawrie at the 1999 British Open. This losing streak will end eventually, but this has been a barren few years after the huge success both in the eighties and nineties. Still Europe has won the last two Ryder Cups and hopefully it will be three in a row at the K Club in Ireland next month.

My mistake, I forgot Phil Mickleson won the US Masters this year, so yes it is two out of four.
