Congratulations to the first time major winner - yet another in the past few years, when Yang, Ogilvy, McDowell, Glover, Cabrera, Cink, and others have made golf unpredictable once again. Louis Oosthuizen dominated from Friday onwards, and looked less and less beatable as time went on, finally winning by a Tigeresque seven shots. Tiger? Tiger who? This was supposed to be his year, too - the stars aligned perfectly for him in 2010, or so the experts said - with St. Andrews and Pebble Beach on the list of major venues. Jack Nicklaus' nearest rival remains majorless since his epic performance fighting off a serious knee injury at the 2008 U.S. Open. Mortality comes to us all eventually...

And a tip of the cap to Rory McIlroy, who recovered from his nightmarish second round collapse to card excellent scores over the weekend and finish in a tie for third. Kudos!
