- Will the streak of 16 different winners in the last 16 majors continue?
The unprecedented streak of nine-straight majors being won by first-time major winners finally came to an end with Ernie Els topping Adam Scott at the British Open. However, this run of different major champions, dating back to Padraig Harrington winning the 2008 PGA Championship, is still intact. How do we explain it? One word: parity. Incredibly, a win by many of the favorites (Woods, Donald, Westwood, Rose, Kuchar, Scott, Dufner, etc.) would keep the streak going into the 2013 season.Stuart Franklin/Getty Images
