South African has a history of top finishes without having won 'Africa's major'
5: Number of top-10 results, in eight appearances, for South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen at the European Tour’s Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, South Africa. Oosthuizen, 37, whose nine European Tour titles include the 2010 British Open, has yet to win what is known as “Africa’s major,” but he will be among the favorites when play begins Thursday at Gary Player Country Club (tee times).
12: Number of Americans, in 13 years of the PGA Tour’s Mayakoba Golf Classic, who have won the annual event on the Yucatan Peninsula. Defending champion Matt Kuchar returns to El Camaleon Golf Club at the Mayakoba Resort as play begins Thursday in Playa del Carmen (tee times). Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell, in 2015, was the only non-American winner at Mayakoba. The other U.S. winners: Fred Funk (2007), Brian Gay (2008), Mark Wilson (2009), Cameron Beckman (2010), Johnson Wagner (2011), John Huh (2012), Harris English (2013), Charley Hoffman (2014), Pat Perez (2016) and Patton Kizzire (2017).
