Tiger Woods - Incredible - 11 Majors

There is no question about it now. Nothing short of a nuclear war will prevent Tiger Woods from eclipsing Jack Nicklaus' Major title haul of 18. Woods has 11 now with his victory at Royal Liverpool.

The British Open is my favourite what with the weather and the somewhat untamed courses. Next year it will be held in Carnoustie where negative scores are a luxury at the best of time (remember the Van Der Velde collapse).

Here is the list of the Top Eleven Major winners:
(All American unless otherwise stated)

Jack Nicklaus: 18 (over 24 years)
Walter Hagen: 11 (over 15 years)
Tiger Woods: 11 (over 9 years so far)* - Still Active....
Ben Hogan: 9 (over 7 years)
Gary Player: 9 (South African - Top non-American).
Tom Watson: 8
Harry Vardon: 7 (UK)
Gene Sarazan: 7
Bobby Jones: 7
Sam Snead: 7
Arnold Palmer: 7
