Only four players have ever won on their major championship debut. Willie Park Sr was the first, though he probably shouldn’t count; nothing came before the 1860 Open, after all. Francis Ouimet was next to hit the ground running, the amateur and his ten-year-old caddy Eddie Lowrey making off with the 1913 US Open in innocent style. A full 90 years later, Ben Curtis came from out of nowhere to lift the auld Claret Jug at Sandwich. And fourth up, Keegan Bradley announced himself and shocked the world by winning the 2011 PGA.
This doesn’t happen often. Xander Schauffele, then, eh?
