They’re the cream of the major championship crop, circa 2012 — the Athlon Major Championship Dream Team. Throughout the month of March, we'll be unveiling Athlon Sports’ 20 players to watch for majors season, with commentary on each from the Golf Channel’s Brandel Chamblee.
Born: April 24, 1973, Worksop, England | Career PGA Tour Wins: 2 (21 on European Tour) | 2011 Wins (Worldwide): 4 | 2011 Earnings (PGA Tour): $970,446 | World Ranking: 3
Brandel Chamblee's Take:
The clever Twitter fanatic is one of the best interviews in golf, and if the occasional blemish in his short game doesn’t trip him up, he could be making the media centers very entertaining in 2012.
