Golf: Micheel lives dream of PGA's one-hit wonders
ROCHESTER, United States / New York (AFP) - Shaun Micheel has not won a tournament since taking the PGA Championship 10 years ago at Oak Hill, part of an unusual group of one-major wonders the event has produced.
The 44-year-old American returned to Oak Hill this week for the 95th PGA Championship and will play the first two rounds with 2002 PGA winner Rich Beem and 1996 PGA winner Mark Brooks, two other United States (US) players without a win since their major breakthrough.
"Over the years, I think I've escaped relatively unscathed with what I'm going to call the 'one-hit wonder' notion," Micheel said Tuesday.
"I totally get it. I really do. But I don't think people really understand that there's a process involved in winning major championship golf."
