ANOTHER `NOBODY’ WINS TITLE IN EQUAL-OPPORTUNITY PGA

SHARE ANOTHER `NOBODY’ WINS TITLE IN EQUAL-OPPORTUNITY PGA

The story is becoming annoyingly familiar. Another major championship and another name coming seemingly out of nowhere to win. This time it was Mark Brooks at the PGA Championship.

In the last 16 major championships there have been 15 different winners.Brooks walked away with the top prize at Valhalla Golf Club on Sunday when he birdied the final hole of regulation to tie Kenny Perry and then won the sudden-death playoff on the first extra hole.

Making matters even a tad more annoying was the fact that Perry never really finished the playoff hole. He just picked up his ball and walked away lying 5 after Brooks rolled in a 5-foot putt for a birdie 4.

Certainly, Brooks is a deserving winner. It was his third victory of the year. But it was still somewhat surprising that none of the past winners of major championships in contention going into the final round were able to sneak into the playoff.

Greg Norman, Nick Price, Steve Elkington, Tom Watson and Lee Janzen were the past winners of majors whose names appeared on the leaderboard on Sunday.
