A major championship victory in golf is like winning the World Series, an NBA Championship, Wimbledon, the World Cup, the Tour de France, and the Super Bowl all in one.
OK, maybe that's a little extreme.
But winning a major championship on the PGA Tour represents the ultimate distinguishing form of glory, officially earning a player the right to have his name etched among the greatest golfers of all time.
From Sam Snead to Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods to Louis Oosthiuzen, major champions reflect an elite, extremely diverse collection of victors. They have persevered in the most grueling conditions, under the most pressure, among the most competitive players in the world.
The PGA Championship, the Tour's final major of the year, lurks in the distance, and with two surprise major championship winners on the year thus far (Graeme McDowell at the US Open and Louis Oosthiuzen at the British Open), what player without a major has the best chance of capturing the elusive title?
