Fabian Gomez?! Why the PGA Tour's crazy streak of unlikely winners isn't as crazy as you think
Starting with the Masters, the PGA Tour saw this list of winners for a seven-week stretch: Jordan Spieth, Jim Furyk, Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy, Chris Kirk. Talk about a who's who of the game's biggest stars.
But in the three weeks since Kirk's win at Colonial, it's been more of a who's. . . who?
On Sunday, Fabian Gomez, ranked 288th in the Official World Golf Ranking, won his first PGA Tour title at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. The week before it was 212th-ranked David Lingmerth topping Rose in a playoff at the Memorial for his maiden victory. And the previous Sunday, it was No. 127 Steven Bowditch's turn to win at the AT&T Byron Nelson.
